Re: question about electric brake controller

Mine stays on for a while too, then it shuts off. Hasn't ever been a problem. It does the same thing in my Ram truck, too. Bruce

Re: Coming from Audi to Jeep

Newton- Since you've had Audis for a long time, I thought I would warn you since I have had Bimmers for a long time. The high level of customer service you are most likely accustomed to with Audi...

It's a common issue on a cel....first thing to check is your filler cap, and don't overfill your tank. Bruce

Re: 2012 3.6 Transmission Weirdness

It's not the engine, it's the tranny. The mapping is poor, and it has a hard time deciding when to shift, especially since it's coupled to a vague drive by wire throttle. The software updates have...

Re: intermittent rub / moan upon accelerating from a stop or <5mph

Re: Fill me in on the proper Jeep terminology.

No doubt, it's a JEEP. Unique. It's not a truck. I have a Ram with a Cummins...that's a TRUCK!

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?
