I often fold the passenger mirror in when the car is garaged, to access shelves and controls. Almost as often I don't realize I did it until I'm driving down the road. Of course I would notice it backing out of the garage, if I didn't have a back up camera. It's always something!
Great! Make me the bad guy to post the Kia commercial. It's a 2014, has front LEDs and has the rear flipper! I'll stick with the Jeep though.

Is that an Overland only-feature or does that apply to the Summit, too?

I just looked at it again, you're absolutely right -- the original version hides a lot of the curves and lines especially on the hood (must've just been focusing on the grille last night) which makes a big difference and gets rid of that "feminine" look I was talking about. Thanks again for that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Deep Cherry Red vs Auburn Now , how will I make up my mind? Cherry Red would be the Hotter color and the Auburn more of the conservative boring color. But until I see the Auburn in person, not really sure... Your thoughts.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I've been following this thread for a while, but this is my first Jeep Garage post! Thanks for all the brilliant info! Was wondering if someone could clarify the navigation issue that's been mentioned a few times--Harmon Kardon vs. Garmin. The new details in Post #1 say "Harmon Kardon" navigation, while the UConnect website boasts Garmin as the new navigation partner. I far prefer Garmin, so fingers crossed it is used in the new Grand Cherokees. Thanks so much.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

At the grocery store:

If you have Deep Cherry, and someone says, "nice car.." You'll probably say, "hey thx.."

If you have Auburn, and someone says, "nice car.." You'll probably say, "I know.."

Of course this is generalizing, but I get a feeling that the more pretentious crowd will go with the Auburn.. I too like Auburn more, although I consider myself to be very down-to-earth, but again, it just seems like a snobby rich guy's color. Lol..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ok You guys got me wondering now. Gonna check out a 200 in Auburn this weekend at a Chrysler lot, if that is the same Auburn on the upcoming 2014 Summit. ?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Deep Cherry Red is for us low life guys.

Auburn ... just by the name you know it's a girly girl color, no matter what it looks like.
