Re: Annoying doors

Both my 12 and 9 year old boys use one hand to close the doors on our 2011 JGC and the doors close just fine in ours. Also keep in mind that because the doors are so heavy it's actually nice that it...

Re: Weak seat heaters/coolers?

There has to be something wrong with it. The passenger side in previous Audi did the same thing while the driver side was nice and toasty.

Re: front seat fading issue

Regularly use leather protection on your seat. Dry leather tends to fade and crack faster than treated leather. No different that your own skin.

Re: Running boards

I have the chrome and it really makes the car pop without looking like a pimp's ride. It also depends on the color of your Jeep. If it's black, black chromes doesn't look as good IMO. It looks...

Re: Rear Seat question

You'll have plenty of room. We use one car seat and a booster and an adult can sit between the too comfortably without battling with the seat belt latch.

Re: Did anyone try the Audi Q5?

I used to own two Audis before buying my first JGC. The Q5 and JGC are totally two different vehicles. In fact, you can probably stick a Q5 instead a JGC. I test drove both and at the end both...

Re: Limited with luxury vs Overland

Re: Problem with TSB 18-035-11

But did the update fix a problem you've been having previously? Or did you get the update because it was available? If it's the latter, remember don't touch if it ain't broke.

The issue isn't your uconnect, it's your phone or sometimes just bad luck. Oftentimes, the caller might hear 4-5 rings before your phone even rings once due to poor connection (not enough bars). ...
