Re: 4WD overheating

I will agree if its not broken do not flash it. My dealer told me that last year.
But there is that new RO1, dated 2/2015.

Re: RO1 Recall

I think the amount of time is dependent on the particular level of software on the Cherokee. There is also mention of over 50 miles. There is also a mention of the drive and relearn.
There is a...

As I said before my dealer said no on the TSBs last spring for me.
He was correct. For me everything was fine and they were not needed.
Why risk screwing up the AL process that was complete, or...

Re: 9 speed transmission?

MPG is very dependent on a lot of things, that is variables.
For me I was running around 19.0 in town. I do not have a lot of stop and go driving. That's a variable. The weather is a lot colder now...

Re: can i add on extras after I purchase the Cherokee trailhawk?

Generally the answer is no.
But anything can be done for a price, most likely cost prohibitive price.
