Minor complaint 2014 (ok, not much of a complaint! lol)

I have my first complaint!!

Ok, the new gear shift is no good right in the middle.

How to discover this issue.

Get in your 2014 JGC.
Drive to McDonalds
Order some food, be sure to include MORE than 2 drinks.
Pull up and Pay
Move to the 2nd window.
When asked if you would like a drink tray, reply "Yes"

Take the bag of food... now the drink tray.

where do i put it!!!???

in the 2011 you could fit it perfectly in front of the gear shift while it was in drive.... now i dont know what to do with it! lol i had to put 2 drinks in the holder and carry the 3rd all the way home!

I usually put the two drinks in on the same row and put them directly up against the fire wall. That way, if you accelerate, the extra cardboard will stop the drinks from toppling over backwards (the two empty slots closest to the passenger seat) and when you brake, they are against the fire wall in the passenger compartment so they can't tip forward.

BOOM

Exactly... I also wedge it up against the front right of the passenger door (against the door and fire wall) as well. With all of that set in place, the only real thing you have to worry about is making a right turn. Other than that, you're all good (at least in my experience)
