Re: Chrome peeling?

I just noticed the very same problem the other day. Very sharp pieces lifted up but not yet broken off in the cup holder. Hope they will replace under warranty on my '12 GC Overland.

Re: 'tude with Aero Blades

I have a set of Thule Aeroblades on mine. I was very impressed at how little wind noise there was after the install. I checked inside cabin noise level with a little iPhone dB meter before and after...

Re: Thule AeroBlades - Pics

I would agree with nonopr01, the rubber strip along the top of the aerobar would be the contact point with a surfboard I expect. Thule does have quite a selection of brackets specifically for...

Re: Air Conditioning Problem

Thanks. Took it in to the dealer today. They say there was no freon (or whatever the refrigerant is). Apparently zero pressure in system. They refilled and added dye. Guess I now wait and see. I'm...

Re: Air Conditioning Problem

No. A/C button light comes on but no change in engine sound at idle. Can't hear any change in sound. Continues to blow warm, I assume, engine compartment, air.
