They needed to replace the back up camera but it is back ordered.Plus several new items.
I was about to trade it on on a New Summit but had second thoughts. I thought I'd give the dealer a second chance to redeem it's self concerning service.
On the way home I was able to use the Uconnect for the first time. But the tranny jerked worse than it did before I had taken it in. The ac would only blow on the floor and top of the dash.
I can't take it anymore with my Limited or Jeep Dealer service and I'm to scared to go with the Summit.
I'm angry because I've had some really great times with this Jeep. I did a lot of upgrades. I love the way it looks sitting still and on the road. It has the most comfortable ride of any vehicle I have ever owned. But I can't go through another summer with not knowing when the ac is going to cycle out.The jerk and the hard downshifts from the transmission will drive me nuts.But at least the Uconnect is working.

While waiting in the service lane a new Overland owner pulled in and we talked. He said he had a concern about a harsh shifting transmission.12/13 build date. He said he was told it was just computer flash and asked me if I have had a problem with my transmission. I just said I gotta go.

With this 14 JGC and my 2010 I have enjoyed reading all the post. I'll probably check in now and again. I wish everyone well !

I'm picking up a new Volvo on Friday. If I have problems with it at least I'll have a free loaner.
I'm sorry to hear about all of your issues. I've experienced many issues as well, and it isn't fun, to say the least.

Hopefully you have good luck with you Volvo.

Actually, if you really want to get rid of it, either email Jeep or tell your dealer (or both) that you want a buyback. The worst they can say is they are not buying it back, and then you can either keep your Jeep or move on.
If it comes to that I'll definitely try to get another GC. Mine is an early build so that could be part of the problem. Wouldn't jump ship completely. Just on this particular one.

Re: My Last post on Jeep Garage

You are so lucky to be free.. i was going to trade in my 2014 on a toyota or nissan very soon and some ass rubbed the front end and now i need to fix paint

This is also my last chrysler product.. between the clunking suspension, HVAC not working right.. transmission still shifts like its confused, even with the newest flash. I hate this thing more and more every day. My 98 dakota i was driving before this never gave me one single problem even at 100k miles it rode better than this heap.. Good luck to you and i hope i can be free soon enough

No offense --- and you know I LOVE JEEPS (this will be my 6th GC and I also owned a Wrangler) --- but come on, this was a mid-model refresh and nothing super major at all. There are not any new bells or whistles to complicate matters (except maybe the ecodiesel). Enlighten me please...and I say this with all seriousness as I want to learn more (no sarcasm).
Did you build them?

There's a lot more changes under the skin.

Even some of the body panels changed, dude. Those new electronics required new equipment on the floor, new parts required "getting used to", some jobs on the line no longer exist, some new ones were created, the new Summit fascia required its own new wheelhouse liner, I could go on and on and on...

As a matter of fact, so much changed on the 2014 that the job I used to do on the line, I don't even know how to do anymore.

What's that tell ya? Tee hehehehehe.

Vehicle assembly is a heck of a lot more complicated than you may think.
I didn't think it was complicated myself either... until I started building them. Just looking at the build sheet can be confusing!

I work in logistics now, and when we switched to the 2014s, even *my* job is no longer the same!

So what you're saying is that it's a good thing I am getting a 2014 instead of keep the now very "old" 2011..... I am looking forward to the 2014 for sure. I'll PM you once it goes to build....maybe you can remove the front license plate bracket kit (the factory can keep it and save $5) from it before it ships so the dealer doesn't accidentally install it during dealer prep!

Not saying it's good, not saying it's bad. Just saying that it is in fact a VERY different animal.

This was NOT your average refresh.

The more I read about JGC 2014 diesel problems the better I feel about buying a new "old" 2013 model. Up to 8000km and just keeping my fingers crossed.
