New 2014 Summit Owner

Well, today the '11 went back into the shop for the 4th time in 3 months. The service department informed me that not only were they going to have to replace the TIPM for the 2nd time but they were also going to have to replace a bunch of other parts. All of the issues I was having were electrical and seemed to not be getting fixed.

After a quick discussion with my wife, a verification that my warranty was expiring in early December and after a visit to the Infinity, BMW and a few other dealerships, I ended up leaving the '11 at the dealership and drove off in a new '14 Summit.

This is my 5th Jeep (hey I am a Jeep guy what can I say) and the dealership was great to work with. They took into account loyalty and the service issues I was having to help me get a very good deal.

I am crossing my fingers just a bit that the later builds have fewer "bugs" build date of 10/25.

Anyway, here is the new girl

Good Choice! lol and good build date, I doubt you will have many problems I think most of the standard bugs were worked out by that build date. Enjoy!

Beauty ride! I got my Limited Hemi last month, mid Sept build, with absolutely no issues thus far. I believe they have the bugs worked or at least hope that's our case. Loving every drive I take. Enjoy!!!

My new pride and joy below and first ever Jeep.

Re: New 2014 Summit Owner

Beautiful ride.
Did you get the maxcare service contract?
I am ordering the diesel next week so I can't qualify but will be getting the longest contract I can...

maxcare is what it covers, look here, this is probably one of the better online prices. just make sure to stay with manufacturer plans like these. I have heard alot of bad stuff about the 3rd party plans. I got the lifetime maxcare from the dealer for $2100

because of all of the service problems on my last jeep and repeat business, the dealer threw in a factory lifetime policy. I believe this was the one, but my paperwork is downstairs.
