Re: Squeak In Dash ( driving me nuts)

I watched the video and I feel for you. It would drive me nuts too. Have you tried taking it to a dealer for this?

Re: Better (Best) Year for Used?

If you are getting used and plan to keep it for a long time I would avoid QuadraLift (especially if you won't get extended warranty) and large sized sunroof.

Re: V-8 acceleration hiccup?

This is Electronic Throttle Control for you. Had this happen to me when making left turn. Not a pleasant experience. '11 V6. On my old V8 ZJ when I pressed the pedal it went. Not so with WK2.

Re: Does WK2 has an a/c or cabin air filter?

I replaced that air filter myself and after that had this kind of noise for a while when air was blowing at high speed. It later seemed to go away.

Re: My V6 is enough power for me. History proves it....

This comparison is worthless without mentioning weight increase. If there was no power increase this car wouldn't pull its own weight.

Re: "I don't know how to drive in snow/ice, so I blame my GC" Part Deux

Does anyone think deflating the tires would help? I am not a pro in this but I understand one would get a better traction.

Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

Just a guess: could this be something on the cabin air filter? Have you tried changing it?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

I replaced one myself and found it was really difficult to remove storage compartment - I was afraid I would break it. Next time I will just ask dealer to do this.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

The famous "vehicle tracking" thread by Milous :D I remember the drama very well. Some people would get VERY BOTHERED when their dream car got stuck at rail yard 50 miles from their home.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

They may spend more time looking than it would take to wait for an ordered one. I think I waited about 6 or 8 weeks when this was considered a new and somewhat hard to get model (end of 2010).

Re: Buzzing noise from middle of windshield/dashboard

I get a similar noise when I start my '11 Laredo X (3.6) in the morning. It seems to be only when the weather is cold. But after a minute or 2 it never does it again.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

I honestly don't understand why this is an issue when one can custom-order any configuration from a dealer. This is exactly what I did and I got exactly what I wanted.
