My Jeep after a week
I've had my Jeep for a week now, here are some thoughts.
The audio system is awesome. The bass is strong and undistorted. Neither the Mark Levinson in my Lexus nor the Bose in my previous Caddy could compare with it in that regard. As the sound quality obviously depends on the input, the best sound seems to be from a CD and songs recorded onto the hard drive. I connect Pandora from my android vis Bluetooth to the audio system and the sound is surprisingly good, more so than from sat. radio. So I use Pandora as my primary music source. Being able to play through the audio system like that is a great feature.
I am amazed how there is no wind noise even a 100 mph. They have done a great job with sound insulation.
As I haven't got 500 miles on it yet I can't report of 0-60 or 1/4 miles times. I can say though that the truck corners great.
The green, yellow and red guidelines on the nav system are helpful in backing up.
The seats are comfortable and have good lateral support. My wife likes the suede seats as they won't be hot in the summer or cold in the winter. I like the remote start. It will be nice in the winter to leave the office to a warm and defrosted vehicle.
I would have liked a larger screen for the nav, but I can live with it. The other thing I have noticed is that the brake dust is brutal. I don't know if this is because the truck is new and it will become less of an issue with age or not. It does however come off the wheels easily with a soft cloth.
The only problem I have with it is the sutomatic headlights don't onto high beams automatically and the light in the bottom of the rear view mirror blinks constantly. Member xj31 identified how to deal with the problem in another thread. I e-mailed that to my dealer who thought that I just didn't know how to operate the lights.
