Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

Yeah the clicking steering wheel buttons on the back of the wheel on the '14 sure caught me off guard. Why they designed it that way is beyond me. I may actually purchase the '15 buttons and install in my '14 Summit just because that click everytime you press the button is annoying.

Congrats on the purchase! Love the Summit!

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

What did you pay for the Overland originally and how many months did you own it.

I like to look at the difference on what I bought it for and what I got back and divide that by the number of months owned to see what it cost monthly to HAVE owned it.

That's how I know I got a good deal, sounds like you got a great deal on the Summit.

I might do the same upgrade on a 2016 Summit next year. I already have the ACC. I mostly want the H/K radio. That's all I wish my Overland really had.

Does anyone know if an Overland with H/K radio add noise cancelation. Or that only on Summit's?

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

I believe I paid 42 for it, so about a 7.5K hit over a 12 month period. Money down the drain but hey, as long as you're saving enough then disposable income is for what you enjoy. More than happy to not spend elsewhere and put that money into something I enjoy driving, working on, reading about etc.

I can't tell any difference with the noise cancellation honestly. I think I read it works when "eco" is on to counter exhaust sound but I can't tell. The car is incredibly quiet but I think that's more to do with the insulated glass the 2015's have on all 4 windows and the windshield. H/K radio is great (minus something loose with the locking system in the driver door that likes to rattle w/ any bass, first item on the list to get fixed at the dealer!)

Ya, my driver outside mirror bezel rattles like nuts when I rock the HK . Or its the cap, when I hold the cap during AC/DC cranks rattles stop.

It's not money down the drain. It's not FREE to own the Jeep for 12 months. Figure about $425/mo for a lease (maybe more). So $200/mo was down the drain ($2400.00). Looks like you got a good deal on both ends so not too bad over all.

2014 Overland to a Summit

Congrats! I was in the same exact situation this last July. I went from a '14 Overland to a '15 Overland. I debated on a Summit, wish I would have went with a Summit. The FIRST thing I noticed was the buttons on the back of the steeringwheel were so much quieter! I change the station all of the time, if you rode with me it would annoy you, anyways that alone was enough to make it worth it for me. I'm still debating on getting a Summit. Most likely this spring I'll get a 2016. Not really loving the High Altitudes interior, although I want that exterior. Oh well, I'll just mod the Summit out! Hope you are enjoying yours Was your '14 a V6 as well? I'm thinking I wanna go with the EcoDiesel. My '14 was a Hemi and I miss it. Not necessarily the power but the transmission was a lot more refined.

Yea, I was taking into account the payments I made over the past year as the cost to have the car over the period and the difference b/w trade in value and original price as my cost for trading it in so quick. Either way, to your point, I think I got a fairly good deal and minimized the damage. Happy with the decision.

Yup, the buttons behind the wheel was the first thing I pointed out to the wife and she looked at me like I was an idiot! Everybody has their thing, that was a huge improvement for me too. Yea, my 14' was a V6 as well. My 14' did not shift smoothly at all, it had the same hiccups around the first few gears others have mentioned. I haven't had any of the same issues at all w/ this one, much smoother ride. Would love to have the Hemi but the hit was bad enough on a 12 month trade in and the V6 is plenty fast for me, couldn't justify the few extra grand b/c it sounds a little better and is a little faster!

Agreed on the High Altitudes, like the exterior but not the interior. I'm not a fan of all the chrome on the Summit but the interior is very good. I'll prob switch out the mirrors, handles and one or two other pieces to body color. Not looking to black it out completely but want a cleaner look to it. I love my Jeep and didn't even consider other brands BUT I do think the Range Rovers, BMW's, Porsche's etc aren't dripping chrome for a reason, clean looks good!
