Re: Anyone else not having problems?

Just took my '14 Limited 4x4 on a 700 mile trip and no issues at all. Makes a great road trip vehicle for sure! Usually after a couple hours of driving, I start getting tired of it and like to let my wife drive some. Not so with the WK2. I did let her drive about half way home yesterday, but that was about 2 hours out of the last 4 days. Never a dull moment and never a bit uncomfortable.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

I have about 1,800 miles on mine with no problems. I am totally enjoying the vehicle.

10 days and about 300 miles, flawless, inside and out. Everything is working just as intended. Awesome vehicle, loving it so far!

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

I've put 1300 miles on mine in the two weeks since I brought her home. No issues except the bluetooth not staying paired with my iphone 5 (which is a known thing). I love this rig.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

2 Weeks now and no issues at all. Uconnect works perfectly, no misaligned tailgate, no rattling under the steering wheel, navigation choosing correct routes. Im beyond ecstatic with the vehicle. Took 3 months to get it, but it was SO WELL worth the wait.

Only thing I miss is that my Murano had a button in the back that would fold down/up the back seats. Oh, and I haven't tried the SD card yet so I can't say anything about that but Ive been happy streaming music from my Iphone perfectly.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

As far as navigation is concerned make sure that you have TMC Incidents off in you navigation. I believe by default Jeep will find you a route based on traffic data so the shortest route is not necessarily the fastest.

I think it is a cool feature but you have to be aware of what is going on. I was surprised when my buddy called me and said: "Hey, are you stuck in this traffic? Seems like there was some accident on so and so". My Jeep already knew about it and picked different route. Nice ...

Something doesn't sound right. First you say to turn off the TMC Incidents, then you say the nav system directed you around an accident which sounds like you had TMC on. So which is correct?

That is a nice feature on the Murano. I will miss it, as well. Overall, my Murano has been a nice ride. But I'm looking forward to my Jeep!

That's not what I was saying. If you think that your NAV is picking strange routes (as some people complained here) make sure that you turn off TMC. You might get stuck in traffic but it will pick the most straight forward route.

I keep it ON and I like it but sometimes you need to review if the route that is being picked is not to "way off". Just something that you need to be a cognizant of.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

Just crossed 2300 miles and while I can't say I've been 100% trouble free (uconnect bugs) I am very happy with the vehicle. Nothing has put me in a situation yet to really dislike the car and I'm not looking for things to pick out as an issue that shouldn't be on a vehicle priced this much.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

No problems here after ~1000 miles except for a few minor uconnect issues, mostly where settings are sometimes reset to the default when starting the vehicle after it's been parked for a few hours or more.

I'm happy with it so far.

Re: Anyone else not having problems?

Hi All,

6 Months and nearly 13,000kms, and so far, it's been great. Love it, actually.

I had a small rattle in the sunroof, which was tightened up at the first service.

I'm touching wood (for good luck) and it's been great. Would happily recommend the GC to others ... that's right, I have and they have also bought one.

Have always liked the styling of the Jeeps but have never ventured near them purely on reputation. I'm sorry I didn't buy one before now.

"Yep, I bought a jeep" (The Aussies will know what that means )
