Re: Small Overlap Test

I think that all things being equal, then safety sells. The small overlap test does matter to potential new buyers.

Re: leather seats waranty claim

I have had leather seats for years and I think yours look fine. Keep them treated and they will last for years.

Re: Chrome wheels on a 2013 Overland

Try looking at www. detroitwheelandtire.com. I think they have what you are looking for but could be pricey. Good Luck.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Dual exhaust outlets for V-6 models would be a nice update and competative move. If you want to differentiate the Hemi, just put a badge on the tailgate.

Re: 3.6 Pentastar made in Michigan and Mexico

Re: Pentastar Throttle delay

I noticed this too when taking a test drive. I thought I was just not working the throttle correctly. Seems like you hit the throttle a little harder to avoid this.

Re: Sunroof delete option for Limited

Unlike the Jeep's roof, the big panoramic front roof section on the Edge does indeed move and it is quiet due to a windscreen that pops up when it opens. No buffetting at all, the Jeep's command view...

Re: Sunroof delete option for Limited

I don't think so. The way it reads in NADA.com is that it is a delete option. The DVD player option is seperate and indicates that the single pane sunroof is included with that option. Still confused.

Re: Getting to spark plugs in hemi

Just how much would it cost to have the plugs changed for the hemi? This has to be hugely expensive. The changing interval should be a modern 100k.
