Re: High Mileage WK2s

I'm at 54000 and I had a rear passenger shock squeak that needed replacement and the Quadra Lift compressor go out. The replacement of the compressor fixed it, but my car was literally out of my...

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stuck in Snow

Okay, I know many of you are laughing but I'm not experienced at snow driving. What could he have done to get himself going without the use of kitty litter or anything like that?

2012 White Gold Grand Cherokee

I swear the Jeep on the hill wasn't planned. It was just someone checking out the scenery.

Re: Navigation Maps sadly outdated

I've been using Garmin GPS handheld units for years. I always found that the data on the maps, even the newest ones that come out, were at least 3 years behind. I'm assuming that the newer maps for...

Re: Leather Seat Quality Experience MY 2013

I guess I should feel lucky. My 2012 GC that was built in Oct. 2011 has 43k on it and the leather still looks new. When I've been away for a week and first open the door the car smells new.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee "Fire Truck" in the 2013 Korean GP

Re: GCs Getting Bigger, Cargo Area Smaller

Your problem with the size was exactly what I found between the 2001 I had and the 2012. In some ways many cars appear to have as much space as the current GC, just not in height.

Re: 2014 Overland "new car" smell = "wet dog" smell
