Re: My 1500 mile review

Yureka! found it! (I'm lying, the wife did).

Headlights adjusted. No trip into town but that just means I can stay in ans wash the Jeep.

Re: My 1500 mile review

I can't find the screw....how bout a little more clarity. Is it the screw down quite a ways in a hole which requires a pretty long screwdriver?

Yep. That's the one.

Just a little over 1500 miles this week. I want to share some things now that I've calmed down a bit.

First the bad:

A couple of paint issues, a few blemishes underneath the clear. Not that big a deal but you dont have to look hard for them.

The front of the bumper cover is off. Almost as if the bumper cover is too big for the fenders. Sticks out a little wide and hangs a little long from where it meets the fender. Tried shoving it in place, no luck.

Bluetooth. Have NOT gone in yet to dealer,too busy, will do next week.

Brake dust. I know , I know, I'll get the Hawks around 3000 miles.

Headlights are adjusted HIGH. I get flashed every night on the way to work. Iv'e compared it to my wife's car, my old Tahoe and a couple of my buddies vehicles. I'm higher than all. dealer next week.


The thing that bothers me the most. The AC. It almost nevers comes on to the setting I left it at.

Why the heck does it almost always turn off the dual climate? I drive alone 99% of the time,who gives a %* about the passenger side?

I wish the autostart would start with the AC where I left it. Heck even when I just start it the AC is not where I last set it. Frustrated.

Now the GOOD:

OMG is this truck FUN to drive!!!!

I just see an opening in traffic and it's like I think about it and the truck gets me there.

For me the subtle humm I get when driving is pleasing but when I step on it, it growls. Love that.

I had to learn how to use the brakes on this truck. Stops faster than my patrol car or the old Tahoe.

Comfort is top notch. Two 60 plus mile trips in one day. No leg fatigue,no sore back. Heaven to drive, steering wheel controls are great.

I thought I loved the looks of this, turns out others do to. I don't know how many thumbs up I've got, or how many times at the light someone is asking me to roll down my window so they can ask about it.

"duuuuuude, that's badass!" is what most say. Guy or gal. Real head turner ( if you're into that , this truck will get attention)

I truly LOVE to drive it. I can't think of another SUV I'd really want to be in,really.
Thanks for the review. When you speak on the A/C on start up I know where your coming from. The new 2013 RAM's are the same way.. One thing I did to somewhat fix the issue of the fan speed changing, I turned off the comfort assist in settings which has seemed to help. Try that and let me know if the Jeep is the same.
