Re: New questions for the 2011-12 Jeep engineers

What were some of the running changes (mechanical, cosmetic, etc) that were applied during the 2011 model production cycle? i.e. any changes to Quadra-Lift or it's components, such as the compressor?

Re: New questions for the 2011-12 Jeep engineers

Please ask what has been done to improve reliability of the Quadralift air suspension.

It appears that the Quadralift is the major reliabilty issue that causes the vehicle to basically become undrivable until repaired, just being able to limp back home or to the dealer.

Most other warranty / reliabilty items don't stop you driving the vehicle while this can.

If you have not done it already, try tow/haul mode..... My first reaction was: soooo, that's where they put my Hemi.... Holds shifts longer/higher rpm, really helps performance....normal mode is for gas mileage. (my guess, as eco mode is off when you press that button...) Still with you though...a little more timing would be a good thing...

Lightbulb Re: New questions for the 2011-12 Jeep engineers

Why software update in TSBs isn't apply to all vehicle as a regular services/maintenance protocol, at the end od the day spend more money with warranty issues and car rentals to customers, other major manufacturers each time that you take the suv to regular services, the technicians run a update to vehicle computers

Many of us have been questioning this for a year now. Say what you will about gear ratios, softwear, etc., but I don't think that this engine is putting out the HP and torque that is advertised. Did someone say dyno testing?
For Godsakes a Ram truck will smoke a GC hemi to 60 mph. I know. I own both.
