Re: 2016 to get twin turbos?

Good timing: Ford has announced their power plant for the 2015 Raptor and it'll be a 3.5L v6 twin turbo making 450HP. Read the article for torque theories because those figures have not been revealed...

Re: Hard driver's seat

One thing that was better in my '14 Cherokee were the front seats. Best i've ever driven. Next time you are at the dealership try those because they are awesome, but I doubt they would fit in a GC...

Re: Jeep Cherokee Lemon to a 2015 WK2

Chrysler just did a buy back of my 14 Cherokee in Oct due to transmission issues. As you have learned or will learn, with the buy-back, the deal is significantly better if you trade to another...

Re: Letters from lawyers

I'm not a huge fan of attorneys trolling for business like this, but I can't complain about my right to use lemon laws to go after a massive corporation that I otherwise would never in a million...

Re: Need To Vent

And what is the list of things the GC has that the dart doesn't have? I think you net-out ok here. This is almost as trivial a thread as the guy who was going to sue Chrysler for coming out with new...

Re: Subwoofer too loud - Grand Cherokee 2014 Limited

Agree that it's way too loud. Very boomy as previously described. I have mine down to about -2 or -3 and it's about right for my tastes from most FM sources. You could probably take it to a really...

Re: 1st Wash

Have to 100% agree with these tips. Learned by experience that microfiber towels absorb better slightly damp.

Re: Subtle shutter

I have driven 4 or 5 of these cars now and they all shifted poorly. In the buy back process we had to determine if we wanted a replacement or a different car, so we tested a '15 - slightly better but...

Re: Subtle shutter

Yes, this is one of three reasons why Chrysler is buying back my '14 Cherokee. The transmission on this car, and anything it is directly connected to, are a collective disappointment on an otherwise...

Re: Transmission problems

Had rough shifts from 1-2 and 2-3 within first 2k miles. Finally transmission dies - will not engage in drive. Get a new transmission. Now the car shudders in 1 and shifts horribly from 2-3....

Re: Consumer Reports Can't Recommend Cherokee, Calls It Half Baked

I agree with the negative comments on CR...they often write inexplicable things like when they repeatedly criticize sports cars for their harsh ride. As if they review vehicles in a total vacuum....

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

There are a lot of stupid aspects to this suit. The best one though is that there is a post from the would-be lead attorney threatening the suit, on a forum whose primary appeal is to talk about Jeep...

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

This is the most hilarious thread I have read in a long time. The only way this could be any better is if this actually sees a courtroom and then becomes a reality tv show. Hopefully someone from...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Long time listener, first time caller. Thanks for all the info guys, this has been great. Especially happy to see that others have observed the mysteriously shrinking invoice-to-MSRP margin!
