Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Yes, I realize there is a seriousness to this. I have issues though with a manufacturer building something to a safety standard that was established and then that safety organization changes the rules that apply. General Motors side Mount Fuel tanks in thier pickup trucks were definitely found to be more likely to cause a fire than the Ford and the Dodge of the day. This is a very similar case as we are talking about modifying an old design that was proven safe enough for older standards..... Careful where we draw the line because, do we recall the vehicles without crash mitigation 10 years from now because it will be proven you are 5 x more likely to survive the crash with crash mitigation, or do the manufacturers that didn't include ABS brakes standard now have to go back and pay to install them. This is a slippery slope legally.

Engineering is getting better every year but I dont think this is the same as a faulty piece catching fire. we are talking about holding a vehicle to a higher crash standard?

Edit: I should add that eventually the Recall was forced on GM which considering the evidence of what was happening I understand but I can see how this is not cut and dry is all I am saying.

Not to worry. Ford Pinto had this problem and look how well they came through it.

WOW.... is he one of Lee's offspring?

No being serious, if he is in the know that would be huge. Please go post in the 2014 Diesel production thread and get them all bouncing off the walls like they are on crack.

This way if you are wrong we can all enjoy the same hang over.

Dude... if he's right then you just scooped the entire world.

On the flip side... if he's wrong... we are going to fling virtual poop at you.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Regarding the June 11 rumor, its true....See....Jeep reacted lightning fast to get the non-explosive version out! Good move, corperate dudes. Glad to see someone lit a fire under them (pun intended)!
