Re: Grand Cherokee under investigation

Re: UConnect firmware vulnerabiltiy

Re: Eco-diesel trim levels vs the diesel competition

Re: Testimonial for DOMs DEF injector/ harness protection plate

Re: Michelin Latitudes not for this longitude!

Common complaint about Michelins. My 04 AWD SRX came with them. Very tough to handle in heavy rain or snow. Switched to Pirellis and found them 100% better.

Re: 2015 GC Limited

Driving a 2015 diesel Summit 4X4. Fantastic mileage. @55mph gets 31+ mpg. @70 mph its 28.7 mpg. Not bad for a 2 1/2 ton brick. Does mid 20's around town. The diesels tend to outdo EPA numbers while...

Will that hole mean that a 2015 owner does not have to drill a hole in the frame but just in the plate itself? That would seem to make the plate installation very simple. If you had the hole...

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Where are you getting 55 CRDs in transit? Only a few show up on the Milous system. Mine has been in "inspection" since 12/1/14 early in the AM. Now a few others are there.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

If you want a JGC Summit CRD there is no 2014 version that offers an interior that isn't dark and mono chromatic. Plus those sound deadening features make a difference for some of us.

Unhappy Re: From Von# TO D1?

Depends on what you are ordering. On a 2015 GC CRD the VON and VIN came within a couple of days. The D1? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Who knows when and if they will build USA GC CRDs.
