Re: GC Love/Hate

Toyota has an electric roll down back window in their 4 runners. Wish we had this feature.

Re: GC Love/Hate

LOL...I had completely forgotten that there even WAS the "flipper glass" feature. I just had to run out to my GC and figure out how to open it. I can see how it might be handy, for sure. Yet it's very well hidden...no visible hinges on my Summit.

----

As to the original question posed, my "likes" are very much in line with yours, Robert. The seat cooling was very refreshing on my round trip to Florida recently to help the 'rents move. I absolutely love my new saddle interior...especially being involved in equestrian sports. How appropriate! I have not had any issues with the pano roof and although I don't use it much, it's nice to have. The NAV hasn't been an issue for me, either, once I got used to the change in controls from my previous vehicle. I do agree that the "stalk" is a bit busy. It's also easy to knock the auto high beam off when using it for turn signals, but I can understand why both functions are where they are to remain consistent with many other vehicles.

The one thing I'm not happy about is how the rear door locks stay locked and have to be manually released by someone sitting there in order to open the door. Outside of when "child locks" are engaged, I'd much prefer that pulling on the handle from the inside allow the doors to unlock and open, at least when the car is not in motion. That would be safer, IMHO. I also wish that the audio system would automatically reconnect with my iPhone for music streaming, especially if it's the only active AUX source. Once Bluetooth connects, if the car was turned off with AUX selected, it should return to the same place. It's a nit-pick, but...

Re: GC Love/Hate

2012 and they still haven't fixed/corrected the sunroof rattle?

My 2011 is still rattling away. That's probably the ONLY thing I'm unhappy with, so I guess that ain't so bad.

Re: GC Love/Hate

I love the flipper glass as well, it's nice for when I want to get in without going through the whole deal of opening the hatch, and also good for low overhangs. It wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't have it, but I'm glad that I do.

Re: GC Love/Hate

Flipper glass has been in the Grand Cherokee since 1998.

Yep. My buddy in LA also got a GC two days ago and he also has the rattle! What the heck!?
Anyway, they fixed it, said it was a insulating section of foam that wasn't in right. Dead silent....But two days later it went back to rattling same as before. I won't let it go and will get it fixed.

Other than that...what an amazing SUV.

Yes, that's true and that's how mine is set. But it doesn't address the problem I mentioned. A person sitting in the rear seat with a locked door cannot open it without first pulling up the lock button on the top of the door. In an emergency, they cannot bail without taking two steps to open their door if it's locked.

Brings back memories. I vaguely remember riding in the 3rd seat of my parents 1959 Plymouth Fury Custom Suburban station wagon with the rear tailgate window rolled down. Must of been nice sucking in all the exhaust fumes.
