I picked up my new red GC Jeep yesterday afternoon. It is a beautiful car!
Just had a few minutes to drive it and mess with the UConnect. Looking good.
But, I hate the:
MOPAR CHROME EDITION GROUP (AEE) [MSRP $995 / INV. $ 886]
ē Mopar Chrome Tubular Side Steps (MRT)
I am pissed I paid 886 for the anti-functional
side steps. Maybe it is because I ended up with 18" wheels or because I am a 6'3" 275+# old man with stiff knees, but these steps are just in the way! Even my 5' wife said "they gotta go"! I will have my dealer remove them ASAP - anybody want them at a good price?
These tubes are too narrow and fit too close to the body to be useful. I have been driving my 2003 F250 4X4 for 10 years and its steps are necessary and I always use them. With the Jeep, I have to step over the steps to get into the driver's seat. Bummer.
My only other early complaint is the miniature cubby hole where the SD card is (to be) installed. My big, stiff hand couldn't push the small card into the slot - I had to have my wife do it!
Pretty small stuff, huh? I'll drive about a bit and report more later.
