Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Re: Consumer Reports Drops Grand Cherokee Recommendation

You mean like the misaligned body parts inside and out? Or tire shimmy? Or air suspension issues? Or quad touch key fobs? I could go on here but you get the idea. There were many issues starting out,...

Whats your take on the trans with this diesel?

Up front I'm very pleased with this drive train and I'm curious about others impressions of it including which modes they are using (eco on/off, sport) and why. I suspect that those sitting on the...

Re: Towing Review//Engine Heat

I'm going to take a guess here that many of those same displays will be available in the ram. Just like the SRT the ram has some menus we do not. I'll be honest, I don't need to know my 0 to 60 but...

Re: 2014 GC remote start climate control

And sometimes you would be right. Still I can look back on my own experience and know that it took me a while to figure searches out. Some terms are so generic that they yield a million and one false...

Re: What is the breakin period prior to towing?
