When driving with offroad 1 & 2
On small bumps off road banging noises and bottoming out
jeep head office Australia said " this is normal" you must be joking?

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

Not me, and I've had two MY14s now. You'll definitely hear a clunk in OR2 over small to medium bumps if you are travelling "a bit quick"... a definition which has a degree of personal opinion in it.

If it happens in OR1 I think you need to find a dealer who's a bit more open to investigating it... as that's definitely not normal.

Cheers,
Steve

If you can duplicate the fault near the dealerships, use a car off the lot to demonstrate it's not normal. If your car does it and another does not then it's game over for their ill informed letter.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

Someone might be able to point you towards a dealer with some sack. I would definitely reply to the letter and say that based on your research, no one gets banging / clunking noises in OR1.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

The dealership mechanic and I drove in a bluestone lane way at 10 klm per hour and he said that should not bottom out like that but was over ruled by head office , will take your advice and see if they will do a demo at the same location ,if not will write to consumer affairs re false advertising!

A fault isn't false advertising... but attack it as you see fit.

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

The biggest fault to the car is adding air for increased height. This inturn makes it ride rougher. Im led to believe its the top shocker rubbers continuing to compress and the shaft tops out on the cap.

Re: 2014 grand Cherokee overland quadra lift

Contact the manufacturer! This is a terrible design. They are fully aware of the problem which they do not disclose at the point of sale...they will just say it is normal, but if enough people complain, hopefully they will design a fix...The impact hammer effect of this actually caused the front suspension cross arm bolts to come loose and put the front end out of alignment...had one come all the way out it may have been deadly...

It will definitely have premature negative mechanical and electrical impacts on the vehicle...

Seven total posts, all on the same topic.

Do you drive a Jeep? If so, why haven't you moved on to something better?

If you have moved on, you could let us know your experience with the better choice and maybe some others here will follow suit.
