Re: Another confusing order/buying/owning experience... (long)

I would imagine that the seats are the same construction, with just the addition of piping and the logo embroidery.

Just thought i'd relate my buying experience of my '11 Overland 5.7.
Started off with placing my order for dark charcoal with the black interior. was told that it was about 6-8 weeks out.
i continually (almost every day) called the dealership and jeep customer service to figure out if my late june order would ship with quadralift or what. nobody knew! not a single person!
finally started becoming a real pain about it and was told that since my order now had been pushed back into an October delivery, it probably would. (this was after the news was posted here that the quadralift production had started). the uncertainty regarding that ultimately made me cancel the order, and track one down (charcoal on frost) some 500 miles away so i could be sure about what i was getting (scared of air suspension reliability in the long term).
a deposit, quick plane ride, and a great ride back i am now the proud owner of my overland!
i can't speak enough about how incredible this car is. i felt bad getting it all muddy on day one, but hey its a jeep.

Now, on to the next. maybe someone else with an 11 can chime in here.
i have a shuddering/vibration intermittently (doesn't happen all the time) on acceleration? what could that be all about? it has 1000 miles on it. does it slightly on the deceleration, not as much though. fairly pronounced at times, passengers asking what in the world is that. generally in the 3k rpm range.
maybe something that goes away as it gets broken in?
any ideas? confusing because its so freakin new.

thanks guys! excited to be part of the family!
call the dealer...there is a TSB to reprogram the PCM for this very thing

From my experience sitting in the limited and overland, they feel like the same seats.

the difference between the limited and oVerland leather is the Overland has Nappa leather.

Re: Another confusing order/buying/owning experience... (long)

I thought that the "Nappa" leather was just for the saddle interior...

I posted a pic of a Dk Charcoal in another thread a couple of weeks ago. Here it is. Nice choice.
