Dealer did the hard wire radar detector mount as well per the instructions from JG. Worked like a charm.

Crickets from him so far today, but I also asked him to drop the price a bit more, so he could be sitting on it a bit. I'll let y'all know when I do.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

If the CRD is going to be somewhat of a limited edition or only built to order (as has been suggested on this forum), are any of you waiting to order a CRD (like me) worried that you'll have a white elephant on your hands? The maintenance techs at the dealers won't have much or any experience working on these Italian diesels. Is that or should that be a concern? What about resale value? Just stuff I'm thinking about now that I have at least another month to wait before ordering...

If you own a v tail Beech I wouldn't think you mind being different.

Yeah - that worries me too. I have heard a bunch of stories about people with orphaned diesels having a really hard time getting a tech who can work on them. That said, I have hope that Chrysler will follow through on their diesel rhetoric, but am a bit reserved on it.

Vtail, it crossed my mind but I'm still thinking Chrysler really needs the CRD to succeed as key part of their future plans. No inside knowledge here but just seems logical as fuel economy fix for much of their full size fleet (Jeep, Ram ,etc). It might seem lonely in the early stages but going out 3-5 years gotta figure they are plotting big time move into CRD to help on the CAFE requirements.

I heard stories of an earlier CRD failure a few years back that I'm not up-to-date on but hoping round 2 is the charm. Or is this round 3 if you count the 80s diesel disaster lol

I'm a bit concerned about that as well... it really depends on if they put this motor in the Ram, 300, and the Wrangler whether it will be at least as mainstream as the VWs.

I just hope the marketing experts don't take the fact that they have not taken any stateside customer orders yet as a reason not to take any customer orders yet ... you wonder with those folks some times.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I agree. They are going to NEED the diesel engine to satisfy the proposed fleet average fuel economy numbers. They just don't need it yet. BUT I WANT MY DIESEL!!!!
