Re: New(to me) 2015 Silver Overland

Afternoon all,

I figured I would update on my experience so far in the 2015 Overland since there are quite a few negatives all over the place that could make people shy away from these vehicles.

It has been a month and about 1,500 miles in the Jeep. Overall, I love it.

The good:
1.) V6/8Speed is better than I expected. Engine sounds pretty decent in the Overland, as well as the exhaust, considering. I still may add a K&N CAI for sound, but am satisfied for the moment.
2.) I love the indigo/brown interior. I was a bit fearful, but am glad I went with it. It is even more muted now that I had the front windows tinted to 35%(Even though they screwed both windows up and it had to be redone).
3.) Exterior. IMO, they nailed it with the Overland. I love the LED DRL, especially when I am pulling up behind other vehicles and can see the reflection.

The not so good:
1.) V6/8Speed. The shift from 1-2 right after startup is annoying. It lags, and revs higher than it needs to. After the first shift, no problems.
2.) FCW is nice, but too sensitive when set to "far". I had it engage twice while people were turning right and it thought I was getting too close, and I wasn't :-). So, I changed the setting to "near" and it is much, much better.
3.) The front USB port doesn't charge my iPhone 6, but the back ports do. Annoying.
4.) No dedicated spare change holder. WTH.
5.) The key fob is too large. My Mazda fob/key from 2006 was the size of a credit card and hid in my pocket well. This one, not so much.

Outside of the V6/8Speed gripe from 1-2 shifting on startup, I am very satisfied.

I made it through 56 pages of posts so far on Jeep Garage, and they have been very helpful. Thanks for all the knowledge base here!

-Trent

My 2015 V6 Overland has that same issue, shifting from 1-2 when cold.

Great looking ride and it sounds like you got a great deal! Mine has almost 15k miles on it and I was offered $38k trade in...

Re: New(to me) 2015 Silver Overland

I gotta say,that is a really unique and very cool interior color combo,knew it was available but hadn't seen one before,very impressed.Asked my wife if she noticed anything between 1st and 2nd gear,she did say that on occasion it can be alittle rough but does say that's harder than normal acceleration,so,thanks for that note,will get her to keep me informed and will search a few threads to see if it's 'common' or not.

^^Yup it's common. Not much we can do about it though.
