Re: Sport Mode

Agreed. I have the 2.4 and it really brings it to life around the city. Stays right on the powerband, no hesitation.

Re: Contemplating Purchasing a '15 KL TH

I came from a WK Hemi Grand Cherokee. Been a Jeep owner over 40 years. I love my KL (North/Latitude) and I have the 2.4! No issues, but the tranny works like nothing else I've driven. Takes some...

Re: Transmission shifting problem- 9 sp 2014 Cherokee Ltd

Agreed. Also, 9th gear is very seldom seen by any KL owner. I think a few have seen it going downhill with a tail wind at 85 MPH.

Re: Interior cleaning

I use 303 on everything. Dash, door panels, all plastic/vinyl. My KL has cloth seats, but I did use it on the leather in my Grand Cherokee.

Re: Snow Performance

I just traded my 05 WK with the Hemi and QDII on a 2015 North (Latitude).
Only 185 miles, but so far I am impressed with ADI and the stock LE2's.

Re: Front sway bar links and bushings...

I'm in Canada, so our prices are likely higher than U.S. prices.

New brackets were $12.00 each, links were $24.00 each, bushings $29.00 each. All OEM Mopar parts.
