New 2014 Summit Owner
 
Well, today the '11 went back into the shop for the 4th time in 3 months. The service department informed me that not only were they going to have to replace the TIPM for the 2nd time but they were also going to have to replace a bunch of other parts. All of the issues I was having were electrical and seemed to not be getting fixed.

After a quick discussion with my wife, a verification that my warranty was expiring in early December and after a visit to the Infinity, BMW and a few other dealerships, I ended up leaving the '11 at the dealership and drove off in a new '14 Summit.

This is my 5th Jeep (hey I am a Jeep guy what can I say) and the dealership was great to work with. They took into account loyalty and the service issues I was having to help me get a very good deal.

I am crossing my fingers just a bit that the later builds have fewer "bugs" build date of 10/25.

Anyway, here is the new girl :)

Good Choice! lol :) and good build date, I doubt you will have many problems I think most of the standard bugs were worked out by that build date. Enjoy!

Beauty ride! I got my Limited Hemi last month, mid Sept build, with absolutely no issues thus far. I believe they have the bugs worked or at least hope that's our case. Loving every drive I take. Enjoy!!!

My new pride and joy below and first ever Jeep.

maxcare is what it covers, look here, this is probably one of the better online prices. just make sure to stay with manufacturer plans like these. I have heard alot of bad stuff about the 3rd party plans. I got the lifetime maxcare from the dealer for $2100

because of all of the service problems on my last jeep and repeat business, the dealer threw in a factory lifetime policy. I believe this was the one, but my paperwork is downstairs.
