Re: unexpected cost of owning a GC

Yep GC doesn't do slow, if you want to see how often you are speeding, just turn on the over speed alert. Makes for a very annoying drive.

unexpected cost of owning a GC

Two speeding fines in one month, haven't been booked in years.
Find it hard to maintain lower speeds around 60-70km :(

Re: Knocking noise

It could very well be the same noise, the niose described for the ESC is clicking.

This is more hammering knock. CHEERS

Re: Knocking noise

I have heard that noise from the ABS, but in all the excitement it's a little hard to tell.

This noise just happens any old time. CHEERS

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Looks like a lot of work just to change the horn sound. Good on you though.
Can you not just remove the grill ?. Would be a good time to fit tow hooks as well. Cheers

Unless you live in a high set house as I do, I covered mine in wax as my Cruiser has done the same thing.

Re: Knocking noise

Not under hard braking, it's normally when I'm taking it easy. Definitely not shocks. Could be ABS pump. It's loud and starts to do it when I am already stopped sometimes.

Re: How often do you clean your ride

I guess the SRT's have a lot softer brake material for better braking, as I don't get any brake dust. Wheels are the only thing that stay clean.
