Re: Electric Brake Controller

Re: Need advice. Quadra Lift system has failed for the 3rd time in 3 Months.

Trust me, that generation S-Class was riddled with air suspension issues. My father had a '00 and had the suspension changed out twice under warranty.
As far as the '14's go, I truly believe they...

Re: Need advice. Quadra Lift system has failed for the 3rd time in 3 Months.

This whole thread is making me sick. After 43k miles of bliss on my '11 Summit, I got the "service air suspension immediately" indicator traveling back from upstate New York this afternoon. The...

Re: Changes for 2015?

The shifter on the '14 is a completely different design then it is on the '11. Mine has a "gate" type in the center of the console and the new one is mounted further aft, to the left of the console. ...

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

After over 40k miles, I am amazed at how well my interior as "aged"…I wore the outer edge on the RR and the F250 leather seats by 40k…The Jeep just shows a few extra wrinkles and no fades. I do, as I...

Re: 2014 compared to 2011

Could not agree more..The new Summit is just dumb looking and the rest of them all look alike..regardless of the trim level.

Re: Changes for 2015?

The new shifter is an absolute deal breaker for me. Once my '11 Summit wears out, I cannot get a new one…my right leg grazes the idiotic, purposeless shifter on the '14's. It belongs on the dash in...

Re: 730 RHR/Iphone 5

the new head unit was just installed two weeks ago. I remember checking the update code and it was a later sequence than the one they took out. I will take a look today and post what I found.
