Slopping hatch? Is that a Jeep joke?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you want a Grand Cherokee with more cargo space, simply buy a Durango.

The whole point of remote start is getting the cooling going on hot days (or maybe heating on cold days). If that does not work, of what use is the "feature?"

There is a TSB out now to fix that issue.

First Drive: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee - 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine

Quote:
Burning The Midnight Oil

The grandest Jeep competes in one of the industry’s most brutal segments. Unlike the Wrangler, which has no legitimate competition, the Grand Cherokee has to lure buyers away from Mercedes, Rover, Lexus, and other latte-serving dealerships. A legendary SUV pedigree alone isn’t always enough to hook upscale SUV buyers.
We’ll leave the discussions about sumptuous amenities to the whine-and-cheese magazines. (“No whiners” is our motto.) Instead, we’re obsessed with the vehicle’s mechanicals, particularly its powertrain technology.
For 2014, the Grand Cherokee remains on the shared-with-Durango WK2 platform. But the big news is the highly refined 50-state-legal diesel. The Fiat-influenced 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 from VM Motori (a joint Fiat/GM holding) has the same displacement as the former optional Mercedes-supplied BlueTec mill. The EcoTech has the edge in power over its predecessor: 220 hp versus 210, 420 lb-ft of torque compared to 400.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yesterday, I went to a store. When I came out, my 2014 Overland would not start. I tried holding the key fob in my hand - tried several time - never would start. I read on here a while ago that if the key fob battery was dead, you could use the end of the fob to push the start button. I tried it - BINGO - it started right up. I did not try the fob remote start button or my Android Uconnect feature but will next time. The Overland has started numerous times since with the same key fob.

Going into the shop next week because there are 3-4 software updates available, one of which may help this non-start problem and another may correct my outside temp sensor - off 10-15 degrees at times.

I don't know how long a key fob battery should last, but mine lasted 5 years. Let us know what the dealer says.

Is the USB port inside the center console an audio input for an iPod or just a charging port?
