Re: Synthetic oil?

I do 20K a year and live in MA and drive up to NH often. Plenty of potholes, that will knock your teeth out. Been lucky I guess. Maybe they cancel each other out statistically over time.

I got...

Re: Ouch

That's why I should NEVER get an SRT. Because I'm sure I'd do something stupid with it.

Re: 1 Year Review with the V6 Pentastar

My 6 shifts flawlessly at any speed. Not just good, but great.

Light foot or heavy foot it reads your mind.

This is in eco mode.

Re: JD Power Initial Quality

1 year in, 15k. And only 2 visits for transmission firmware.
Will make another visit for hvac firmware and brake booster recall.

Pretty happy so far.

Builds in early 2013 really skewed the...

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

You said it right above.

You said I can pay $50K cash with 1/11 of our take home pay.

The math is really tricky here.

11 * $50K = $550K TAKE HOME PAY.

Take home means, after taxes.

Re: First Issue - No Sound

I doubt it will work, but I'd try a factory reset before driving 65 miles.
Note you will lose all settings if you factory reset it.

Might be a separate fuse for the amp too.

Re: Blackstone Oil Analysis Report on Factory Fill Oil 2014 Pentastar V6 with 6000 Mi

131K, that was just broken in. My 2002 4.0L GC had 227K and my service guy had 300K on his 4.0L. It's keeping the rest of the Jeep together that's usually the limiting factor :)

Blackstone Oil Analysis Report on Factory Fill Oil 2014 Pentastar V6 with 6000 Miles

Note that the designated oil from the factory on the form is wrong, I spaced out when I filled it in. It's probably 5W-20 Organic oil. It had no impact on the report.

I filled it with Castrol...

Re: Problem With 2014 Grand Cherokee Heater

Sounds like they took you seriously and did a thorough job.

Sounds like the dealer is a keeper too.

Re: JGC RWD vs 4WD?

Audi makes fantastic AWD systems. If I was concerned about safety only I'd be in an Audi. I've not owned a Subaru but I've heard some pretty positive things about them. I sure Land Rover does too.
