Re: Owners: Would you buy your Grand Cherokee again?

I currently own both an early build '11 and an early build '14. I've had a couple of the TSB issues, but no breakdowns, nothing mechanical, never stranded. I still love my '11 and my wife loves her...

Re: '11 Jeep GC RPM problems

I remember that back in late '11 there was a TSB for a transmission firmware flash that made the lower gear shift points much better on my '11 Laredo X 4x4 V6. Make sure yours has had that TSB.
