Re: Whistle from front drivers pillar?

Was this problem ever fixed? I have the same problem on my 2012. I've had the dealer replace the door driver side door/window seal but still get the whistle when driving on windy days.

Re: Cold weather starting noise

Mine did that last winter on very cold mornings, but this winter I have not heard it once. Very strange.

Re: Blizzard ...

Wow 20"! Awesome to hear about how great QT1 is in the snow since this is why I bought my GC to begin with. I would never take my $40,000 Jeep rock crawling or mud slinging anyway.

Re: 3.6L V6 owners: rate your 5-speed transmission please!

I rated it a 4 out of 5 because it is way better than the transmission in my wife's GMC Acadia and makes the JGC much more fun to drive. The Acadia's programming provides little power until the gas...

Re: Do I need the clear bra or no?

I had a clear bra on my previous Nissan Maxima because the paint chipped easily. The silver paint on my JGC holds up much better and after 6 months I do not have a single chip. Amazing.

Re: Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

Just a guess but probably because the roof panels are all the same across models so they used the 'decorative' rails to fill holes on models that don't come with functional rails.

Do it only warn that key has left the vehicle if the engine is running only, or does it do this in the accessory postion as well? I need to test this.

Re: Winter Chill and Rugged Brown Build Out

Thanks Pat and 4Jeep for the Billet Silver Metallic picture. Billet is not very silver IMO. I much prefer Bright Silver Metallic so I'm glad I bought mine when I did if this is replacing it.

Re: Winter Chill and Rugged Brown Build Out
