Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

I think its in the initial screen you get when you turn the car on... the one where you hit accept for all the warnings of driving and pressing... mine has heat and cooled seats and steering wheel. It seems to remember this until I tell it not to, so maybe that is what you mean.

All things considered, the truck is great. Engine belly pan does not have the hole, no issues with fit and finish, and no unusual noises (yet).
I was disappointed with support from Jeep phone assistance and the instructions provided in manuals and guides to be lacking. They have no realworld experience with their product and can only read from script or manual.
As others have found, when programming UConnect settings, after placing check marks in boxes for various settings some checkmarks go away after about 3 seconds. I believe that after changing a setting or function the display will update to show only features available when engine is running (I changed setting check boxes with ignition in “OFF” mode). While the check marks go away with IGN in “OFF”, the changed checkmarks show active when “IGN” is placed into “RUN” mode. Looking at the settings in “OFF” shows only what is active in “OFF”, looking at settings in “RUN” mode shows what functions are active in “RUN”.
If settings are changed after selecting memory profile 1 (button on driver door), the changes are changed only for memory profile 1 (door button or key-fob). Settings need to be made independently for memory profile 1 and or 2.
To link door button memory profile 1 or 2 to key-fob, put “IGN” into “Run”, depress “S” button on door memory profile switch, release and depress “1” or “2” and hold for about one second within five seconds, after a couple of seconds, UConnect and EVIC will show that memory profile 1 or 2 is being set, while this is being displayed, depress “LOCK” button on key-fob to link that fob to memory profile (link fob to memory profile must have been selected in settings).

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

I have had my Summit for 17 days now. The rear liftgate is off center, the battery h as been dead 3 mornings in a row, the Uconnect hasn't worked since day 3. Took it to dealer this morning for repair. I might as well of worked on it myself! They have no clue about any of the problems. They told me to live with the tailgate. They think they need to replace the battery, and they don't have a clue how to fix uconnect. They also left scratches on my dash and front bumper while poking around. Not sure what to do here. I have to take it back in on wed.

My dealer had a local body shop adjust the liftgate. I heard Chrysler will be getting billed $428.00 for the adjustment. This should have been done at the assembly plant but of coarse they just figure to let the customer deal with it. Seems like they are still resorting to old habits that caused them to go belly up not long ago. Have them get it adjusted by a body shop.

I would also tell them to either remove the scratches in the dash and from the front bumper or replace the parts they ruined.

If this is not a bug (still think this is a bug and not indended functionality) this whole thing needs to be simplified and selection needs to be explicit. For example if you cannot pick the option with ignition off just gray it out rather than to allow to select and than magically reset the setting. Very confusing and I'm not convinced if this is intended actually. Why I cannot set everything with engine off? Do I have to be moving to be able some features, retarded?

Also settings for Key fob 1 and 2 should be more clear. Maybe have another column or tab to show one or another. At least on top of the screen it should say in BOLD letters settings for KEY FOB 1 or 2 or BOTH so you know what you are doing.

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

Just got back from the dealer after having them look at my-misaligned door.
Dealer couldnt do anything and had to send pictures into Chrysler and see what the next step would be.

These are some of the pictures I had taken.

1. shows how the rear door is sticking out when fully closed
2. shows the gap at the top between the front and rear door
3. shows the chrome piece at the rear trunk window. hard to see, but theres a little gap and where it should be flush against the car

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

Mine's at the body shop now for my door, dealer didn't want to mess with it so they just outsourced it. Probably better anyway, I'm not sure I want them touching it anyway. Mine wasn't nearly as bad as yours though... Mine just stuck out with no vertical misalignment. Should be a pretty painless fix for you once they do get it in.

Wow. Great advice and opinion on Chrysler too!

It was probably missed at the assembly plant and it was also missed by your dealer during prep. I doubt Chrysler will get billed $428 for the adjustment. Chrysler sets the rate for warranty repair or adjustments. So I'm sure that will dictate what the adjustment costs.

I don't know for sure whether Chrysler or my dealer is going to pay the bill but the service manager did take a few photos and sent them to Chrysler for approval for the adjustment. Which they approved. I'm just glad it was done.

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

I picked ours up yesterday. Everything was aligned and Jeep was gorgeous. Then I noticed a major defect on the 2" beveled portion of the front of the hood, just left of the "Jeep" emblem. It looked like a spot weld that they just painted over. The guys at the dealership couldn't believe it left the factory like that. They let me walk the lot, pick out a different hood, and they swapped it right then and there.

Everything else has been great so far, except the disappearing U-don't-Connect check mark thing. On the whole, this is an exquisit, incredible piece of machinery and I look forward to long term ownership!
