Does this mean whatever issue that delayed production is solved? Only real difference is the urea on the us version.

Now that people are getting the '14s, could we get some first hand impressions of the quality difference between the projector halogen and the projector HID?

Thanks,

The splash guard (mud flaps) will not work on the summit. The front ones are close to fitting the contour but the mounting tab is contoured the wrong way. The rear ones are not very close to matching the contour of the wheel well.

Has anyone noticed harsh tranny kick downs when decelerating and costing to a stop? Just seemed more pronounced than expected

None noticed on my Overland with the Hemi. I have about 800 miles on it, just drove about 380 today and averaged 21 mpg, just loving the ride. Have had occasional issues with the Nav system not recognizing the SD card and having to pull it and re-insert for my music, but no driving issues whatsoever. Traction has been surprising for the Michelin road tires that come with the ORII package, even in the slush and snow (still have 1 foot on the ground up here).

I only notice it when coasting to a stop in town. On the highways, I don't feel it. I have noticed it slowly going away and I assume it's due to the tranny learning, but it is annoying and one of the things I hate at the moment.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You think that's bad, as others here can attest, you should experience the learning curve of a horse, now there's some uneven shifting!

I resemble that remark, although I think it's sometimes the human's learning curve in the combination. My horse, Nellie, is a "smooth operator" and when I get on Elvis (my daughter's horse), it's like going off-road through pot-holes in a Jeep. He doesn't "shift" as smoothly with my fat but on him. LOL

So what I'm hearing is when I get the new rig, I should drive her in circles for a good hour or two, put a couple of sugar cubes in the gas tank, and keep a bucket of oats in the passenger seat?
