Re: Using voice to navigate to a favorite destination.

Same here, though I have found a lot of times that the system attempts to "go home" when it doesn't understand where I want to go.

Re: Wheel lock question

Had my Overland for over a year now and it had no locks on it.

But that is one strange looking locknut. I have had locking nuts on previous vehicles that had custom rims (78 Bronco, 86 4Runner...

Re: Random "Beep Beep" driving me crazy!

Re: JD Power Initial Quality

Re: service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.HELP

Failure at the exact same time is unlikely, but I had three sensors fail on a Tahoe within a week of each other when it was 8 years old.

Having the frame cover those stickers will get you stopped in Ohio by an officer who is looking for a reason to stop someone or an officer who is anal retentive.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

What happens if you install this and then, when the vehicle is in the shop for something totally unrelated, the dealer does a UConnect update which they are prone to do even when you tell them not to?

Re: Oil Pressure Meter

That's normal. As the vehicle warms up, it should drop, probably to the 30's. My V6 will often start in the 90's when it's cold and then slowly drop off. My Miata does the same thing and it has a...

You have to turn it off in the spring. I do the opposite - turn it off in the fall as I really don't like the heated seats and wheel.
