Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

The ECO mode is the default because it gives the best mileage for the EPA ratings. If it was optional the ratings would have to be lower and sales would be affected.

On the Hemi dropping into...

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

Just to balance out the reports, I've now had my '14 Summit V8 for two weeks with zero problems. I did a three day 2,000km trip last week which also involved some semi-serious off roading. Every...

Re: UConnect Across Borders

Yup. No weather, no traffic, even though these work off Sirius XM. Other manufacturers have no problem doing it. Why not Chrysler Canada?

Re: '14 Overland order - trapped in Inspection for two weeks?!?

I've been though this myself, and as best I can see the problem is caused by Jeep not practicing triage when a car goes into Inspection. It might be just a carpet misfit or as bad as a faulty...

Re: AC and Auto

Thanks guys,

I guess that I'll just have to expect that this is the way it works.

AC and Auto

My '14 Summit has had no issues what so ever yet. But, I'd like other '14 owners to confirm if the following is the same on their vehicles.

Auto mode works fine, and the AC works fine, but not...

Re: Pulling to the Left and other 2014 Summit Bugs

I don't think that this forum is a large enough sampling to draw any firm conclusions about production quality on the '14 JGCs.

My V8 Summit was built on March 15. I only have a few hundred miles...

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

After just a few hundred miles on my '14 Summit (with no problems or complaints) I just wanted to comment on the power steering with the Hemi.

Hurrah for Jeep!!

I am so sick of fly-by-wire...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just to add to the database, my just delivered V8 Summit (built mid-March) has the opening.

Re: 2013 BMW X5 vs 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Not sure I would agree. I've just come out of a 2012 Benz ML350 into a '14 Summit, and the quality of interior materials as well as switch gear is superior on the Jeep, and not by just a little. The...

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

What you're asking for is a complete a-la-carte offering. If Jeep was a speciality car maker you could have that. But they are a mass production car maker (more than 1,200 JGCs a day) and so they...

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

Other than the lack of underbody protective plates, the Summit is as capable on off-road vehicle as the Overland. The plates can be dealer installed if you really need them.

But, unless you're...

Re: Head Light washers in MY14 Overland?

I've had then on several cars over the years, and if you live in a snowy/ urban / rural environment and drive at night they are very worthwhile. Salt and slush can reduce headlamp effectiveness...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I didn't think so, but just wanted to confirm.

Though my car is on order from a Toronto dealer, I am in Mexico at the moment and visited a Jeep dealer in San Miguel de Allende this morning. He...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon,

When you say "exports" does that mean Canada? I haven't seen any Canadian cars enter D1 yet.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

With Jeep planning on selling more than 200K '14 Grand Cherokees this year, there will likely be a few that do. But one man's off-roading is another man's afternoon drive.

I've got a '14 Summit on...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can anyone shed any light on the new premium nav system. Product literature shows it to be Harmon Kardin while the draft '14 JGC manual shows it to be Garmin.

Anyone have any idea on what it...

Could it be delayed availability of components that are unique to Summits?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I don't believe that's correct. US and Canadian models are coming off the line at the same time (they are built to the same specs), and several Canadian orders for 2014's are already in Pre-release,...
