Re: FYI...condensation issue, Chrysler now replaces the headlights under warranty

Question for you CLS. Did you have to take your headlight mod off or did you leave it on when they replaced the lights?

Re: Real World MPG

Where are you located? Using the 94 octane might be the problem. Where I am at the 94 octane that we have contains lots of ethanol and it kills the mileage. I use 91 octane Shell V-power and have...

Re: Done with the SRT - my story

Re: Gas Tax aka Green Levy Fee

That is correct. The green levy is added on after the fact. There was never a $3k fee built into price. When the 2012 came out there was actually a $2k green levy but the new 8 speed has helped...

Re: Stock Exhaust shape?

It is normal. Exhaust was crimped during assembly to reach the bolt above it. SRT engineers claim they have made adjustments to compensate for the crimp.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

You are doing very well for mileage. The most I have ever gotten on a tank was 700 km.

I think the 8 speed helps for sure compared to the 2012 model. I did a test on my 2012 on a long road...

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

ECO mode is always on, the button just engages it sooner. Are you sure that the numbers you posted are mpg and not l/100km? 12.3 and 11.9 l/100km work out to around 20-24 mpg. I know that I routinely...

Re: Troubleshooting: Outside temp sensor - slow to respond

I have noticed this issue on both my 2012 and now my 2014. I get the feeling that some times the jeep needs to get up to highway speed to read the temp accurately after it has been sitting for a bit.

Re: Winter tires?

I have a set of Blizzak DM-V1 that I used last year. They worked great and they mounted easily onto the factory rims. The size I used were 275/45/R20. Through the speedo out a bit but no big deal.

Eco mode still kicks in even if the button is not activated. By pushing the button it allows Eco mode to kick in sooner and start off in different gears.

I rarely use the Eco button but there are...

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT- features and changes

It actually wasn't hacked. It was a different user name than Scott's. It actually had an O instead of a zero. Made it look like Scott's but it really wasn't.

Re: 2014 SRT Passenger Seat Squeak

To me it almost sounds like one of those cheap plastic water bottles (the kind that come in a 24 pack at home depot) are stuck under the seat and it crunches over every little bump.

Re: 2012 Overland -> SRT8...worth it?

When I first saw the 2014's I hated the grill and front end. As time went on and even before I bought the 2014 i actually really started to like the 2014 front end. Now when I see a 2012 it doesn't...
