Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

The RAM trucks already have this. It's basically a thermal control module in-line with the cooler lines that will bypass the cooler and heat the fluid when it's below operating temp. The 8-speeds,...

Re: body panels Not lined up!!!

Hmm. You DO realize that the body shop at JNAP is pretty much all robotic, right? There aren't any humans putting the body panels on or aligning them...just machines. This includes the liftgate.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

On the 2014s and 2015s it does -- it's just much less aggressive about it. Generally only during higher-speed cruise or deceleration when ECO is off from what I've been able to tell (using a scan...

Re: "service air suspension" - 2011 Overland

The air suspension will disable itself if lifted on a hoist. It will try to level the vehicle several times and then shut down. I doubt this was the cause of your issue.

Re: Interior Panel Replacement

The entire dash does not need to come off. Mine had a nasty squeak/creak from that panel whenever my knee was against it. It was popped off and re-situated by the dealer in under 15 minutes.
