Re: Am I lucky, or what?

If I did trade a time bomb I have an extended warranty to find out.

Re: Am I lucky, or what?

Strange, the only claims that I ever made on the 2011 had to do with an oil pressure sensor and the power door lock actuators. Two were replaced over the 4 years that I had it.

Am I lucky, or what?

I just traded my 2011 Laredo X for a 2014 Limited earlier this month as it had gone past the extended warranty. The person who purchased my 2011 works at my dealership and is familiar with its...

Re: New Limited

You have to adjust the volume to the desired level while the voice speaks, using the radio volume knob. Fingertip controls probably do the trick also. Haven't tried it yet.

I will have had mine...

Re: New Limited

Nice! How long did it take you to figure out how to raise the volume on the VR system for the radio and NAV?

I finally broke down and read the manual.

Re: New 2014 GC Limited.

To be honest, I leased the first 5. I got used to a new Jeep every three years or so.

Guess what my Weathertech mats from the 2011 don't fit the 2014. It has less legroom in the rear.

Thanks, leaving on a trip to the Maritime Provinces with it tomorrow morning. With a bit of luck Arthur will have blown out to sea by the time I hit the coast.

New 2014 GC Limited.

I couldn't wait for the 2015 GC's to go on sale and picked up this 2014 Limited today with a huge discount. This is my 7th since 1997.

Just have to post a photo.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Interesting option as from the specs I have seen so far, NAV is unavailable for any Laredo packages.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Would the Android Carplay and the Apple Carplay make the various NAV radios obsolete?

Re: Frustrated with Uconnect.

Interesting replies, but are the current models compatible? I know that there updates in firmware for Uconnect but sadly not for my VIN.

Re: Windshield fluid piping

I am sure that your dealer will take care of that nozzle under warranty. This issue will not stop me from ordering a 2015 when they come out.

Re: Downloading to radio

You should also be aware that the capacity of the USB stick can't exceed 2 Gb, otherwise the unit will not recognize it. :)

Re: New Vehicle

I think that it's about 2500 Km from Ottawa to Tampa. I wasn't planning a change until my return but it would be fun to drive into a Tampa dealership with a new Canadian Laredo X.
