Re: No brakes!

Coming up on one full month now that I've been driving the rental Chevy, the oddly named Equ nox (the "i" fell out of it's name):lol: As much as I am annoyed at Chrysler for this recall on the JGCs,...

Re: 2014 SRT camshaft actuator and more....not happy with SRT

There aren't many like vehicle loaners out there these days. So many JGCs are in for brake booster recalls and now waiting for parts. Mine has been off the road with no brakes (master cylinder,...

Re: No brakes!

Actually, it was me who asked the dealer service manager if I could take it home and protect it in my garage, because I was told it could be 8-10 weeks waiting for the parts. He was on vacation when...

No brakes!

Went in for the booster recall to have the shield installed, and the dealer took it off the road due to compromised master cylinder seals resulting from failed booster. Now, no brakes. Asked to...

Re: Warped Rotors

Warped rotors can be caused by the dealer or other service garage when they rotate the wheels for even tire wear. Many of them use impact wrenches. Some have torque set heads. They are not accurate,...

Angry Brake Booster Recall

It's been a while since I posted here. Maybe two years or so. I've been busy, doing life's things, and enjoying my 2012 SRT8, one of only about 150 delivered to this part of Canada for that model...

Re: How much would pay for your 2014 SRT GC???

BTW you might want to check out AutoTrader.ca for deals in Ontario. Right now there are eight 2012-2013's with low KMs between $60-70,000. Remember, even if buying from a private seller, you will pay...

Re: How much would pay for your 2014 SRT GC???

SRT dealers in Canada are few, and even they get orders cancelled regularly. You'll be lucky to pay MSRP, unless you're willing to wait a few months into the new model year. You might consider buying...

Re: Motor Trend's latest video for the Jeep SRT8 2012

Re: $1000 + price increase for 2013 Jeep SRT8

Right on! Just as expected, and since no change in the vehicle itself, I'm glad I jumped on the 2012. This $1500 and the (very) small discount from my dealer will pay for over half the winter wheel...

Re: Fender flares coming unstuck anyone?

I have the same with right front on mine.....top of the arch, small gap. The dealer has ordered another to be installed.

The boys at Chrysler and 3M need to get on this and solve it!

Re: Flush mounted front plate......

Thanks for a great suggestion, jeep2011.
Sadly for me, a few days too late as I already hung the plates.
Could well be a useful tip for other new owners though!

Seeing this, it occurs to me that living 500 miles further north is not a bad idea after all.

Re: OK, I won't pretend the SRT8 will be offroad much either but hey guess what...

Yeah, well I guess it just struck me as odd. A Jeep equipped that way seems OK to me, but an Enclave with brush bars just looks wrong. Seems like they should be more confined to cycling through...
