Re: How do I determine my born on date ?

One way is to become at least a level three member, and ask Milous to get you a build sheet. That will give you the build date and a whole lot more.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

FWIW - Page 12 of the specs refers to Satin Carbon wheels with California edition. Could be they didn't update the specs or maybe California is in.

I think rack and pinion did more to change the feel than electric steering. I never noticed much difference between the Jeep and my Ford. Now dropping Cherry Red sounds serious. :)
