Re: 2014 Limited is missing parts.

Yeah, a lit up MIL is a vehicle's way of saying "you need to attach a code reader" to identify the actual problem (or at least get a clue to the problem).

First time I went to wash my '12, I found a somewhat nasty long scratch in rear quarter panel. It had curve to it making it obvious that it came from whoever washed it as part of the dealership's...

Re: Chrysler Extended Warranty Prices

Yes, the deductables for Chrysler warranties is paid per visit, not per component or per "problem" reported.

I've not ever seen a manufacturer warranty that did not work that way, actually.

Re: Question on Floormats

They also use the term "luxury mats" for the base Laredo E. It's the manufacturers' fancy way of saying the mats are carpeted and not just rubber/vinyl like some pickups have as an option.

Re: Sloshing sound w/ full tank of gas?

I hear sloshing in my 2012's tank after filling it up. It's kinda faint, though, and doesn't really bother me.

Prior to the TSB, the sloshing in the 2011's was pretty loud. The new tanks have...

Re: Oil Change Indicator?

First time mine went off it was at 7500 miles. Subsequent reminders have been 3500. I've read that it goes on 500 miles beforehand, which is why they say change it within 500 miles of driving.
