Center armrest storage

I started getting prices on MY2015.

Am I correct to assume that the front center armrest does not have the opening top tray storage area if the CD player is present in the bottom (larger) storage area?

Thanks.

Re: Center armrest storage

With the CD player, there is essentially no storage there...so unless you really, really, REALLY can't move your tunes onto media or your smartphone(s), don't order the CD player.

Re: Center armrest storage

Just in case you do get the CD player, this thread will eventually be of interest to you.

Re: Center armrest storage

No CD player in the armrest for me! While I do have hundreds of CD's, we are not audiophiles. I want storage room. Thanks all.

Will visit dealer #2 this morning. #1 did not go well yesterday. Price was good, but salesperson asked me if I wanted to order a sunroof or power seats for my Overland!

I was in sales for many years and I not only knew my products inside and out, but my competitors, as well as applicable laws and regulations.

The front center console storage is essentially non-existent if you get the CD player.
Take a look at one on a dealer lot near you, that part is same as '14.

A USB key or memory chip can store way more songs at full CD definition and it will play them, although even the Summit system might not be able to reveal the difference between full 44.1/16 and good 384 VBR MP3, but at least you get the console back.

It's sad when a customer knows more than the sales person. Unfortunately, this is happening more and more. I think they just give sales people a general pitch and have them stick it to everyone.

Re: Center armrest storage

Mine came with a CD player, really useless, so ordered from Mopar the part and replace the storage bin, now we listen the music from a flalsh drive..and plenty of room for storing little things.

Re: Center armrest storage

Went to dealer #2 yesterday. Price not as good as #1. Walked the perimeter of the showroom twice... no salespeople in their offices or the showroom. Everyone of them (8 or so) were scattered around the lots either smoking or talking on their cell phones.

Going to dealer #3 tomorrow where if they beat price from #1, I will order.

Hilarious! Contact Nader at Koons (the DC Group Buy thread). I ordered my Altitude from him... $3,000 lower than the rest of the dealerships on Long Island.

Yeah! I'm with Luxman. Give up on upstate NY dealears. Rent a car or fly to DC. Drive your beautiful GC back and be done with it. I'm in central NY, and there are at least three of us within 50 miles that did the same thing even though we're 350+ miles from Koons.

Call Nader!
