Couldn't change volume/stations/climate control/heated seats & steering.....really pissed me off. Has gotten marginally better at best, but still not impressed. Also have the hard shift and rear end "thud" when starting from a stop. Hard shifts through about 3rd gear, steering wheel vibration, completely worn tires @ 20k miles running recommended air pressure, and had my evap core replaced at 4 mo. of ownership with about 6k on the clock. Entire dash had to come out for that. Was none too happy when I got the pics from my service advisor, who was even worse than the repair. He has since been fired from that dealer and I likely will not return to them for any sort of service, warranty or otherwise. As much as my GC is costing me each month, I love it, but I'm just not sold on its quality. Sad, too, because I have an '11 JK Unlimted Rubicon that I beat on and it's handled everything I've thrown at it and asked for more. 47k on it, with about 29k on 2.5" lift and 37s. Pretty disappointed at the moment.
Sorry to hear that SB.
My vehicle has a lot of dash/instrument cluster/radio unit issues. It's gotten so bad that someone from Chrysler is going out to see my vehicle on Thursday, (it has been worked on many many times already). I'll let you know if they find anything that may be related to yours...

I know, and that's why god invented automated regression testing. I know I demand it for the embedded (and non-embedded) work I do. It's generally trivial to mock out the interfaces for other subsystems so you can test everything on the bench.

It irks me when I encounter systems that were obviously not implemented with the basic best practice of test-driven design. It scares (and infuriates) me when I encounter this kind of untested, slipshod software in health care systems.

I'm in development too. It's pretty obvious to me they did one heck of good job. Automated Tests are great but they never cover everything. They don't cover everything a human might do or the environment this gets exposed to or the near infinite combination of asynchronous events.

It's not a spaceship or a nuclear sub. There will be bugs.

Overall it's worked near flawless for me. Few bumps in the transmission.

Re: Getting rid of it...'14 JGC

I went through similar issues and more with my 14 Limited. It was finally bought back by the dealer.I have been driving a 14 Volvo for a little over a year and 20k miles with no issues what so ever. Ive been lurking on this site hoping service and issues were being worked out. I would love to buy a 16.But i'm going to wait a while and see what happens with the UConnect issue.

Re: Getting rid of it...'14 JGC

Hope you come back. Our 2014 Limited was bought gently used, put about 15000 miles on it so far over 1.5 years. Water pump replaced under warranty has been the only real issue.

Re: Getting rid of it...'14 JGC

Dumped my '14 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limted 4x4 with 34k miles for a used '13 Infiniti G37 with 700 miles on the Jeep lot.

I loved my Jeep but with all of the problems people are having (had some myself) and the recalls, I decided to trade in before the resale value went down. I really wish Chrysler could make a reliable product.

Re: Getting rid of it...'14 JGC

My 2014 GC hasn't been towed back to dealer since Dec.. But this week its playing up. It has switched the heat passenger side down from 22c to Lo being coldest setting about 10 minutes into the journey. I reset it and it stays at 22 for the day. Now it plays cd showing the wrong track numbers.. not a big issue but why. Had the May recall for steering column computer flash fix. Still running my Recall plates on car. I love booking it in for recalls now…
