Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

I'm also thrilled that chrysler has stepped up. I had completely lost faith if I'm perfectly honest. My last WK2 was nothing but problems. At one point it was to the service center for my suspension...

I've finally come to an agreement. They're buying back my 2011 for a really good price. I tried to make the case that this has been happening within the first year or ownership (suspension problems)...

Re: Cool ... Another recall

I think the difference, at least in my experience, is in the way they deal with recalls and the quantity.

In my experience, I think it's harsh to put VW up with a lot of those manufacturers. In...

Re: Grand Cherokee is a winner....and Cherokee is too!

For me it's the chrome at the bottom of the grille that gets me. Easily blacked out though with vinyl or plastidip.

I also prefer the WK2 grille over the MY14 (not a fan of the chrome outlines and...

Hey Jim! Yeah I figured most people use it for traffic or to see shortcuts. I was just curious. Since Kuwait is tiny, you eventually learn every possible road after a month of living here.
