Re: Grand Cherokee Makes Top 10 Stolen Crossovers & SUVs

This will sound like a dumb question but I will go ahead and ask it anyway:

Re: Is screen protector needed for Nav system?

On the chance that you still have eBay email notification - how was this item called? Was it 430N specific or just generic 7" (or whatever the size is) 16x9 screen protector?

Is screen protector needed for Nav system?

I recently noticed a small scratch on my '11 WK2 430N screen. It is not bad, only noticeable when the screen is off and you need to know where to look.

That being said - how do these touch screens...

Re: Bluetooth signal icon is sometimes red on 430N

Do I need to limit the gearbox to the first gear when going forward? Or should I just leave it in "D"? As I said before, this is '11 4x4 WK2 with QT I (Laredo X). No 4-low mode or Snow mode.

Re: Capless Fuel Door Opening Involuntarily on 2014 Grand Cherokee

If it is in the same location as in my '11 that would be your knee brushing against it when you get in the car. Happens to me often enough.

Re: Transmission Shudder

You are only notified about recalls. You need to ask for it to be done when you go to dealer. Plus if your car is out of warranty you will probably have to pay as well.
