What didn't she like about it? Just curious...

And FWIW, my Jeep couldn't even manage 24 hours before it asked for 4WD service again. To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement.

Update: 14 days later and they are "keeping their fingers crossed" that the radio will come in on thursday or friday this week.

I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. You certainly have my sympathies, which I realize is not of much help. I would have exploded long ago.

Her comments were really interesting. She had great hopes for it, and was excited to get it, but over time came to feel it just didn't work for her. She grew to really not enjoy driving it, and said "the whole was a lot less than the sum of the parts."

I've exploded quite a number of times. I truly feel like someone has smashed my head in. I feel like I've been majorly wronged, and no one is listening except my lawyer. But I guess that's what he's there for. It just seems like somehow, I'll be out of pocket some amount of money for this, and I shouldn't be. The only thing I did wrong here is buy a Jeep.

The Q5 quote is interesting, and I can see it. It seemed kind of soulless in a weird way. Antiseptic. But I guess that's German styling. Still, I'd expect that more of an appliance car than an Audi.

Thanks.

After driving my brothers Q5, I didn't like the control interface at all. It was not intuitive. I had trouble adjusting GPS volume, Vents and putting in an address drove me nuts. If I spent time with it there would be no problems.
His backup camera quit working when the car was in reverse.

The hatch area can only be closed by pushing the button on the car and not by the key fob. A real inconvenience.

We could not fit 3 sets of golf clubs in the car without pulling out the drivers.
No blind spot monitoring. No cooling seats.

No Low Transfer Case for off Road Low. No adjustable suspension.
I liked the Audi transparent cover for the panorama sunroof. It allows shaded light to come in without the heat, vs the Jeep choice of open with full sunlight or full dark mode. I thought the Audi stereo sounded better and
the car felt more responsive and handled better than the Jeep.

I like my Jeep Overland better but I am not having the problems (knock on wood) that some are having.

Re: My 2014 Overland review- not good so far!

Update: So the dealer is giving me a choice of another Overland (metallic graphite) w/tech or a Black SRT. They haven't worked the numbers yet, but it feels like I am about to get screwed no matter how this ends up. Also, Chrysler keeps telling dealer they shipped the radio but they don't have a tracking number. HUGE FAIL on Chrysler's part insulting my intelligence like that. You would think that they would try and fix this problem on the double.

Re: My 2014 Overland review- not good so far!

Chrysler came out with a Uconnect 8.4an update this evening. Yeah!! I think this will hopefully address some of the issues we all have been having. call your dealers and ask for the update.

I typed my VIN into their site and it says no updates for me, hopefully that will change tomorrow.

Call your dealer, they just came out with it tonight. I'm sure it will show up on the site eventually, but Dealership should be able to confirm. Mine called me this evening around 7:00pm because they knew i was waiting for the update.
