No drinks here, but I probably need one right now. My body has to be an adrenaline factory if I am still awake, 20 hours now, 10 spent at work.
WOW, that s**ks! Hopefully, you get well soon!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm ok, at least right now... We will see what happens when I wake up...

If I feel anything less than normal, my first stop will be the hospital.

Dude, before you go to sleep stand up, put your feet together, close your eyes and make sure you don't loose balance. If you get all wobbly you may have a concussion and should not go to sleep, go to the emergency room.

If you saw it coming, you will probably be pretty sore from over tightened muscles.

Also, the initial extra cost of a CRD compared to a V6 or V8 must be factored in plus additional maintenence cost of the CRD [ie.$90 oil changes, urea additive, etc.]. Where I live in MT, diesel is now pushing 80 cents more. The diesel myth was started years ago when diesel fuel was actually cheaper that gas in the USA.

Hi Marlon, so sorry to hear. Healing the Jeep is important but more important is that you are ok. Greetings and all the best, Guennik

Oh I know what a concussion feels like. I've had one before.

I don't have one.

My head didn't hit anything...

Thanks everybody. I DID see it coming, sadly, I tried to swerve, that didn't work.

I'll post pics of my Jeep tomorrow since my damage is kinda difficult to see but here's her minivan...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hope all involved are ok. Airbags disabled in the minivan? Doesn't look like any deployed.

Once you're fully mended, Marlon, I'd like to know how well your safety features functioned.

Thanks to you and all on the site for the commentary/dialogue.

Ehh?

That's based off the conversion of L/KM to Miles per US Gallon... not European (Imperial) Gallon.

As for the cost of fuel, yeah, Diesel and Normal Unleaded petrol usually have a wide gap (though it's never a set % it seems). I've always compared filling my diesels as being akin to filling my Benz or BMW (Premium)... I just get much higher MPG (My E-Class CRD for instance, wipes the floor with a co-workers E320).

And Marlon, man, that sucks. Glad you are in one piece.

I'll send ya some duct tape and some spackel for the ride.

Awesome topic. I just joined and spent about an hour and a half reading through. I'm in the process of negotiating on a new my13 in Australia which I'm told will take 4 months to arrive.

Wondering if anyone can tell me when orders for my14 will begin in Australia and when we could expect diesels to start arriving?
