Re: Its the dipstick! On the hemi

Yeah, that's not how it works. Why have a bunch of $11 parts lying around when (normally) you only need 1 every X years? I mean how often does a dipstick get lost, stolen, or broken? In all my years...

Re: 2015 6 mo. SUV sales update: GC still 2nd, but others outpaced its increase.

Popularity doesn't mean a thing; it just means a lot of people bought it, but the reasons are many and varied (that goes for the GC too).

There is no need for the GC to be popular; who cares? Does...

Re: New Honda Pilot vs Grand Cherokee (warning…)

Hell no. Jeep, DO NOT do the eco mode suggestion, that's basically how the 11/13 jeeps (laredo) work and it ****ing sucks. It's the only reason I want to toss this thing out for something that works...

You don't get the lack of range argument, because you're not looking at as if you own it. If you can only afford / own one sedan; how do you deal with those very few odd trips in the year which by...

Re: Help with buying 2014 JGC Limited!!

In addition to the dollar differences, Jeep also won't honour the warranty from a US Jeep. Don't ask me why, seems a little bizarre but maybe more manufactures are like that too.

Re: 4Runner Comparison

Then you need spacers; 1.25" looks great. Look at the back of an SRT, cannot possibly think grocery getter. Only real difference there is the wider / agressive stance with wide rims and tires.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - V-8 Or V-6 ??

Or, you know, just maybe purchase price has something to do with it? Cost to replace it or find parts etc? Nah. Probably just high insurance because it's German. :D

Re: Caught On Fire

If you get a recall notice, ignore it, and then get a fire; chances are your warranty is not going to apply anymore (neither Jeep's nor the insurance on the car). Just sayin.

Re: Can't make up my mind!

Are you sure they are lease returns? I would think you have a high change of getting rentals or trade-ins due to issues with the jeep.

Re: It's Cold and the JEEP squeals!

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Yes, that's my point. The 14 shifter is a bad design, it gives you something that moves without being helpful in terms of feedback. The 11/13 shifter is much better than the 14.
