Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I was going to upgrade from overland to the summit next year. Now I have another decision to make. A blacked out overland is more tempting than the summit. Just wish it had front parking sensors in...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Can we know yet if the summit is still going to be offered with the Summit California Edition package and the dark sienna interior for 2016?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Yes it is functional for some trim levels, but it kind of cheapens the front end of the GC a little. I love my GC. That's the only thing I wish they would change.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

The headlight washer. It's only in the headlights of the Overland, Summit and SRT. It's in attached pic. Honeycomb pattern black plastic on headlights.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Will they at least be updating them to get rid of the washer filler plastic? Some thing more subtle for the washers maybe?

Re: Foglight bezel replacement

From when I swapped out my headlights for the SRT ones on my first GC, I would say you have to remove the bumper to do that. Not too complicated, took me like 10 minutes to do it.

Re: Creaking sound from passenger side front wheel area. Dealer does not know cause.

I have that issue in the tailgate. The sound is different from the one I heard up front. At first I thought it was something with the dash since you can clearly hear it on the inside.

How about the new Volvo XC90? It's a big step forward in design for the company.

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Seriously doubt it, but you can for sure give it a shot. Who knows they might just do it. I was given the vehicle triggers the message when it needs new oil speech when I asked to have the TSB done.
