Mystery Beeps 2014 Story
 
Well the other day when cruising the wife and I kept hearing these beeps coming from the radio. Been searching forums and of course the 2014ís are falling apart if you read web forums so I have to figure something is wrong. Sounds like the backup beeper a little bit, so I was like what the heck. Today when recording my Pandora (I know) from the web I noticed these little annoying beeps on my PC too but super quiet. The instant messaging client I use was putting beeps in my music! So now I have 4G of music with beeps through I have to carry around in the Jeep, karmaÖ I suppose.

Just thought it was humorous what these forums do to your head. You start thinking you have doors that are going to fall off, head units that are going bad, and vehicles that are going to veer off the road from the factory alignment. Just thank god I didnít take it in to have them look at it to find these mystery beeps. Would have been the dealer story of the year I bet for dumb customers. And to make it worse Iím an IT professional on the younger side... So I still think.

Glad it wasn't the Jeep. To say the 14's are falling apart is a little much. Reading about problems in forums can give a false impression that there are problems with a lot more vehicles than there really are. People normally don't make a post to just say, hey, everything is working perfectly and I love my Jeep. If they did, these posts would FAR outnumber the problems posts...

Yep, "Been searching forums and of course the 2014’s are falling apart if you read web forums so I have to figure something is wrong" was meant as sarcasm because of the lopsidedness reasoning you mentioned.

This thread actually exists. A thread for people to just say "Hey, my '14 GC works just like it was designed to and I'm perfectly happy."

I've read a few posts with people freaking out about the crap Jeep and the problem they're having, and I did a little research to find that their problem was being caused by something they were doing wrong, or because they just weren't reading the manual.

In a similar vain to mka18's post, my wife and I were riding around the second day I had my new Jeep and kept hearing this faint swooshing sound. It was making us both crazy with anxiety. What the heck was wrong with my new Jeep!. It was raining pretty hard when we started our ride, but had now stopped, so I turned the wipers off. The swooshing noise stopped. Damn, did I feel like a dumbass!

I wonder how many others have had similar experiences?
