Re: ATTENTION: 2011 owners! PLEASE READ! Questions for the engineers?????

How about gas and oil....specifically:

(1) For the V8, I know that 87 is acceptable but 89 is preferred especially for better performance. My dealer specifically said to NOT use higher than 89 (say 91) since it burns hotter and could potentially cause engine damage (he probably meant over the long term).

(2) For the V8, when to do the first oil change (out of an abundance of caution) then what interval and if synthetics are worth it and if so what interval for synthetics (along with type).

In other words I want to put those discussions to rest with respect to this new V8.

Oh, and maybe more clarity on the V8 break-in recommendations since the manual is not written clearly.

Lastly, where the heck is the coin holder! LOL

1. Why does the "Quadra Drive II" system only have a locking rear differential ?

2. Why is "Quadra Drive II" only available with the V-8 ?

Why did they chose to let hill decent control only function in low range? This is in disagreement with the owners manual and in disagreement with and engineers opinion that works for the company that makes the system.

I would add to that question, why even the RHR has issues in general. If by change they make a decisiont o move to a new unit in 2012, isn't that an admittance that the 2011 was shipped with inappropirate/mal-funcition units and owners should get a deal on a new head unit?

Yeah, I wanted to ask but I was biting my tongue and holding my breath.

I would think the first two priorities from the WK2 board are:

1) Is Jeep fully aware of the shudder experienced by many WK2 owners? What is the potential prognosis and cure? Is this related to prior models shudder challenges?

2) The recent TSB issued for a potential fuel tank replacement explicitly precludes tank replacement if there is otherwise water in the battery or other under seat compartments. Has the source of this water intrusion been identified? What is the expected cure?

I'm sure others will chime in with suggested language adding to the above items.
+1 on these questions. But I bet we will not hear anything about #1

Why can't I run synthetic 0w20 oil in my 5.7 Hemi?

"Off Road" owners are puzzled by the choice of tires. Michelin Latitudes as opposed to a better off road performer.

Awesome Scott, my questions have been asked already, just wanted to say thanks for doing this.

Actually, 1 question would be do they have a fix for the leather dash issues?

Thanks again!!!
