Rented 2013 Limited - seats? Other...
I'm in Austin Texas buying rental houses and attending the college graduation of one of my nieces. The power seats in the 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited I rented just do not cut it compared to the much better ones in my 2006 Explorer. The power driver's seat has no way to go back AND raise the rear of the seat. If it goes back, in goes down in back, as on an incline. The front of the cushion can be raised and lowered. Was a better power seat available?
The cushion is also not as comfortable as that on the Explorer, as it is too soft. The thing only has 10,000-some miles on it, so the seat is not worn out. Maybe it is designed for big fat owners?
Otherwise it is quiet, and the V6 performs nicely once it revs. I'm accustomed to V8 power, but the V6 is not as bad as I had expected. The good Mercedes-Benz transmission is a big help, and the new 8-speed transmission in the 2014 models should be even better.
The rental vehicle has a huge sunroof, so that may be why the eyeglasses holder is in an awkward location at the very front of the roof console.
