Thumbs up 5000 miles on my 15 HA, so far so good

I'm happy to report my first 5000 miles on my new HA have been trouble free, a much different story from my previous two 2015 Overlands. Aside from some minor fit and finish issues, I haven't been back to the dealer once and I'm driving it from Boston to Montreal next weekend. I'll report back at 10k, hopefully with similar feedback.

You are on your third 2015 Grand Cherokee? I thought I went through cars a lot haha. Just turned 6,000 miles on my '14 Summit and it's been great! Hope your HA continues to be problem free!

Re: 5000 miles on my 15 HA, so far so good

Glad you started the thread. I have 4200 on my HA so far. The car has been pretty flawless. I absolutely love driving it everyday.

One day my sound went out completely. Totally random. Radio, navigation, etc. everything worked visually, but I had no sound. After I parked the car and it sat for a few hours, the sound works as before. Weird. Hasn't happened again.

Some how I turned off the easy entry function so that stopped working. The memory settings would work. Apparently, you just move the seat all the way forward and then all the way backward and it will reset itself and start working again.

I noticed the very first shift from 1st to 2nd to be a little rough/delayed on cold mornings. Literally only does it when I immediately pull out of my driveway. Once that first shift to 2nd occurs, it never does it again.

Was this post not worthy for the "HA owners thread?"

Mine has been flawless also except for the last comment - trans shift on cold mornings.

Mine does that as well. Just from 1st to 2nd after I back out of my driveway to the stop sign 100 ft. down the street. Then it's as smooth as silk. It's like it has to pump some oil through it or something.
