Proud owner of a 2014 JGC limited
 
Hey guys, Bought my 2014 V6 JGC yesterday from a local dealer. Went with a limited instead of a laredo... Picked it up yesterday evening. The dealer had 1 base limited in the exact color combination that I wanted in one of his branches at a nearby city... They got to drive the first 40 miles in the car. But I have added another 140 since then...I am averaging abt 16.8 mpg with mixed driving...

I am really enjoying the drive and its super quiet. I havent registered Uconnect yet. I have an S3 and got it paired for music n calls. I did it at the dealer yesterday and it still remembers the fone. But the phone doesnt always connect automatically. Also 2 out of the 5 times, it dint stream music even after pairing. But was able to work around both these issues...Everytime I get into the car, I manually turn my fones bluetooth off and then on to select Uconnect. Once I do this, it gets connected immediately... With regards to the music streaming, once i try to make a call and disconnect, the music starts immediately :)

The only other thing I noticed was that at very slow speeds, when I abt to stop, I can feel the last downshift. I mean its like a slight jerk. Is that normal? I am also able to feel the surface of the road, on my brake pedal... its like I can feel it on the brake pedal when the surface is harsh... Anybody else experience something like this?

Very happy with my new Jeep so far :) and its definitely putting a smile on my face... Will update when I add some miles to it.

Congrats on the new ride.

Check your tire pressure.

That last downshift is to a pretty low gear. I wasn't surprised by the way it feels.

Congrats on the new GC! Had mine about a week and 500 miles now and I'm glad I decided to get it.

What color did you end up with?

Congrats on your JGC Limited! I've had mine almost two months. I love it! White with black.
I've had the front windows tinted,added the sill guards,pedals, net for the rear and purchased a rear cargo mat from Lloyds with the Jeep logo. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I am enjoying mine.

Try driving your car with the Eco button engaged,then without it and see if that downshift issue changes.
