Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

I would totally stay away from a March 13 build.The Radio was not the only early issue. If you are wanting to trade stay with a latter build or since the discounts are so good buy a new one. Speaking from experience here. If you do decide to go with that Overland have them print off the service records and then make your decision.
I just read all the post, My 2014 GC Limited is now sitting on the Dealers lot as a buyback if that tells you anything. With not just Radio issues, and it was a March build. Stay away!

I Still am really pissed! I really loved my Jeep. I spent a year and 20k miles trying to get the bugs worked out. I finally had enough. There is no way they bought back that vehicle just for the radio! Someone is lying!

What was wrong with yours if you don't mind me asking?? How hard of a fight did they put up before they decided to buy it back?? Just curious of how bad the vehicle really needs to be before they take it back. Because that would translate to the condition of the Summit being more than just a radio problem as I would'nt think they'd take it back just from that.

Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

Depends on the state's lemon law.

Michigan's law is 4 times or 30 days in shop.

There is NO requirement for mechanical, etc. It doesn't have to be a major problem at all.

I *could* have lemon'd my KK... for a clock that won't keep time. If I tried hard enough... but I liked it too much to dump it over a clock that doesn't seem to understand that a minute is 60 seconds long... not 70 seconds long...

Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

From the first week of ownership the transmission started to jerked and had hard downshifts while lurching forward.This continued for a year. It was re-flashed so many times I lost count. It would only hold for the flash for about 200 miles and go back to jerking. I could not regulate the heating or the AC and the Ac would stop cooling and blow through the defroster and floor for no reason.This lasted all summer and on a recent trip to Florida this winter. Supposedly it was flashed several times.Never worked right.Tail gate and tailgate window replaced because the glass was hitting the body. Clunk in the rear end. Shocks replaced twice. Unconnect never worked correctly.Hands free phone always had a 30 sec delay.Flash and re-flash. Screen would freeze,Go completely black. When it goes black you can't adjust the heat or AC. Nav didn't work with voice commands. Water Pump,Idler Pulley,Drivers exterior door handle,manifold sensor, rear parking camera and screen were all replaced.I traded the Jeep for a New Volvo working the same deal. My Jeep was Wholesaled back to Jeep Dealer I bought it from and is now on their used car lot. Looks Great! I had really taken care of it! So beware of any used 14 Grand Cherokee. If I had gone through the lemon law it would have taken months.The dealer didn't want that and neither did I.

Wow!! It's crazy to think that they actually fixed all of that before putting it back on the lot. Like you said, it looks great from the outside, so some un-knowing person might end up in that hell hole unless they do their homework on it first. Makes me feel beter about the decision I made.

Thanks!! Yeah, I tried my best to avoid the excitement and impulse buy the Summit. I knew it was a big decision and really wanted to weigh out all my options, test everything from top to bottom before taking that dive. Had my Overland also been problematic I would of been more eager to jump into the Summit, but because I hadn't had any issues with mine, I was fearful of losing that sense of realibility for a Summit that had a track record of issues (even though claimed to be resolved).

In the long run, I feel relieved and good about my descision and feel like I dodged a bullet.
