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.
