2014 Overland - born on date 11/16/2014 (111607)

Hello all. Sorry if this topic is tired. Very close to buying 2014 GC Overland maximum steel V6 4x4 with advanced tech and mopar exterior appearance group. On lot for two months. After research I am very worried that I will have the electrical/radio problems so many before have mentioned. Is this still a real concern I should be aware of? Is there any guarantee I can get from the dealership before signing off on this that I will not experience the trouble others have ??? I passed a "new" looking bright white limited tonight on the way home from work (8 pm very dark out) that had great looking headlights but ZERO tail lights on. Really want this to happen but....concerned for sure. Thanks for your insight!

There's never a guarantee with any manufacturer that something won't go wrong. Buy the Jeep and enjoy it.

After you sign on the dotted line the dealer is "supposed to" install any required updates subsequent to its build date. Get it and enjoy it.

Sounds like the vehicle only had DRLs on.

Re: 2014 Overland - born on date 11/16/2014 (111607)

I think you'll be fine. Mine was born in August and been fine. I think ones before July had a previous Radio that caused lots of problems.

A couple issues not address yet (that I see keep coming up) is heat and the air lift.

Transmission, Most Radio Issues, Xmas Tree Dash Board Recall (which probably caused lots of issues) I think are resolved since August Builds.

Not sure on panel alignment. It has certainly improved.

You want to make sure you get latest firmware in transmission (Released in December)

Good luck.

Oh the Auto On on the headlights sucks. You probably passed an owner that manually turns his lights on and left them off. You'd see Day Time running lights (probably the LED ones) in front and nothing in back.
