I don't understand why some people don't like the headlight washers on the Summit and SRT's? Unless you know where to look, you can't even really see them. Sure looks a lot less noticeable than most other mfg's that have washers for the headlights that are an ugly bump on the front fascia.

The problem is that when you don't have them, it still looks like you do. A simple solid filler, instead of three pieces, would have looked better. A housing designed for the lights without washers would be best. It's not a major issue, but shows a lack of attention to detail. Since these are sourced from a vendor it should have been caught and acted on before production started.

Maybe Chrysler needs to shake up the folks they use for market research. Obviously somebody approved the new and improved shifter that will be exiting stage right.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Hey, at least there aren't any little wipers like Mercedes used to have. What a wart those were. I think Volvo had those too if I recall.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Yes, I've owned 5 Volvo's and some of them had the mini wipers. Pretty useless, but usually ended up being a topic of conversation at gas stations.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Are there any sketches or possible leaked designs of the refresh? Even someones own personal ideas of what the outside/inside might look like for the '16 refresh.

The suspense is killing me.

Yeah, but they all show a white Jeep on a white background.

Apparently you haven't seen the black Jeep on a black background....or perhaps I should just adjust my "Forum Skin" setting?

I WISH there were headlight washers on the Overland, but only the Summits and SRTs got them, unless you were in other parts of the world. Every time I drive in winter at night in nasty weather I wish I had them. As a skier in CO, this happens quite often. They now put down a mix of MgCl that is like brown paint on anything it hits. In any kind of traffic the spray coats the front of your car rendering the headlight almost useless after a while.

Yes, this is a pet peeve of mine...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I found a picture of the red 2016...fortunately, not on a red background... Oh, wait...that's the invoice cost, not the year...
