Re: Swapping out Speedometer gauge?

You know that they will void the warranty when it is imported into Canada and is void in both Canada and the United States (RIV reports VIN info to Chrysler Canada). I know the $13K would be enough...

Re: Moved to Canada - Warranty Now Void

I am going to try and get my warranty money back. Sad part is that called Chrysler and they said, sorry, that's the policy. I wish they posted their policy at the border. I would have sold it at home...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous - if the new 2012 "6 Speed" is a reprogrammed 5 speed, could a 2011 tranny be reprogrammed to get the 6th gear? Just a stupid question.
