Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

When I had my 01 GC, which I owned for 7yrs, the only time it went into a dealership to get fixed is when the fan clutch when out. My 08 Trailblazer was never in for recalls as long as I owned it...

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

Yep, you can't turn the radio off as that is all the UConnect system is part of it. It's like the great all-in-one computers, 1 part goes basically the whole thing is crap (case in point).

Re: Tire & Wheel Protection

You probably won't have the tires for 5yrs as they normally just last 36K miles (some might get more depending on driving). I'd say save your money and use it to get better tires.

I agree. If they can get the parts to the plant to get them built then they should have extra to send out to dealerships to get these replaced. I had to reboot...

Re: Drive or transport new JGC Overland Diesel ???

The OP didn't say if he was buying a Diesel or not (unless I missed it). If he got the V6, then 25mpg is about right.

Re: Drive or transport new JGC Overland Diesel ???

I'd say Drive it. It would be a great drive and you can maybe test the "Offroad" while your trip back. Cars are meant to be driven and you will get past the so called Break-in period.

Re: Oil Change Intervals on the 3.6?

Turn to ACC and then pump the gas pedal 3 times. This should reset it.

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

Re: Alignment on a 2014 GC 4x4 limited

When you get it done, there are tolerances that they have to follow. Don't think it matters where you get it done. I just had mine aligned 2 months ago as it was pulling slightly right.
