It is, just people think that putting it out in the main area is easier. Hopefully the mods start moving threads to their proper locations.

Other than UConnect (hopefully fixed next monday) and the rattling sound (which Jeep is aware of), I'd say the rest are minor issues.

Why check other threads when you can wait for someone to spoon feed you? ;)

memory seats not working.
uconnect issues abound
bluetooth pairing not working
alignment off
minor paint imprefections, I know it's a jeep and it's going to get scratched however i would like my 42000 paint to look nice for a few months....

wsurfh, did you try updating uconnect here:

I did so and the bluetooth pairing issue was fixed for me (I've got UConnect 5.0).

I wasn't able to update as the usb drive didn't work.

Dealer just installed new head unit. Happy to report that so far everything seems ok.
Unfortunately it took 10 days.

Re: Any 2014 GC Problems ?
Am seeing a significat number of reports that all could have a common issue:
- dash going blank
- Uconnect failing
- Sat-Nav failing
- Engines dying
- Service 4WD
- ABS Failures
- Cruise control failure
- USB failure

Would be particularly interested if the dealer replaced a module and the replacement failed.

Many seem to "heal" miraculously. Some set codes relating to high or low voltage. All could be traced to excursions in the 12v system & a number of people have found loose grounds but the dealers/factory seem to be treating all as isolated instances.

I have seen this before but most automotive systems are designed to be robust enough to ignore a reasonable variation in power.

Personally, if I had a '14, I would first check all of the grounds, check for stored error codes, and then would be temped to build a very stable power conditioner (e.g. 12v-12v clamped & filtered switcher with UPS) for the e$pen$ive bits.

ps so far my "12 has been very stable.
