Re: How many miles on stock brakes?

I just had the rotors resurfaced at 42K after feeling vibration when braking at high speed. I travel the i5 "grapevine" in California fairly regularly.

Also needed new tires at 38K. Replaced...

Unhappy Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

I just installed this package in my 2011 Summit RHR. Be patient, as the combined update process (v 2600, gracenotes, and map updates) took close to two hrs to complete. I also was previously...

Re: Stuck in 4th

To follow up, my transmission problem (from the above post) was caused by a failed solenoid pack #8059043.

Code P-0750 was generated.

It's all fixed under warranty and running normally.

Re: Sirius Radio 1-year trial?

Re: Lurching right after starting

I've had this problem intermittently since TSB 08-035-11 was applied. I would say it occurs in 5% of vehicle starts.

This is on a 2011 Overland Summit 5.7 built in 3/11. This is the only...

Re: I thought the 730N RHR has a 30GB Hard Drive???
