One front sensor may need an adjustment, not sure yet, but I imagine that won't be an issue.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

We have a really annoying creak, seemingly from the sunroof, although I am not convinced. Not due to towing, mainly random although it seems to settle at speed.

Apparently it can be done but the auto elec refused to do it because it voids the warranty on the uconnect. Fair enough.

Butts, when towing, what does your temp gauge do? We have been told it is normal to rise to 3/4, especially when going up hill. Have you found that?
