Re: Welp...RWD Grand Cherokee's are basically useless off road

There's a reason the Wrangler only comes in 4x4. It's purpose built for off-road use.

The Grand Cherokee can be used as an urban vehicle with towing capabilities. For this, RWD is important.

I've been noticing this in my 2014 V6. I'd say it works fine about 80% of the time. However, at various gas stations (usually Costco) it will have problems with the auto shut-off. It usually starts...

Re: 14 Grand Cherokee Auto binding mirrors

In the U.S. version of the vehicle, the side mirrors will not automatically close when locking the vehicle. I'm not sure about any export models, though.
