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

I'd get out of that vehicle as fast as possible if this is even an option.
At least my dealer is great.

Re: Economy Mode button, hate the default?!

I'm not sure if I follow but it sounds good :-)
I'm not giving up hope, pretty sure the Eco default will be addressed sooner or later, probably later, maybe never, haha

Re: Economy Mode button, hate the default?!

I guess the 2.1l in displacement increase from 3.6 to 5.7l have some kind of impact, that would also be my expectation.
Eco is probably more of an issue for the ones with more than half empty engine...

Not even close at least in my case, completely different shift points. Don't you experience a downshift right when pull the shifter back to Sports mode? I do. Up-shifts much later as well, that's why...

Re: 2014 Capless Fuel Filler Cap

Yes, totally.
To be honest: I can't wait for the day (3 more years) for the Grand Cherokee to find a new home, so sad but true.
The transmission alone makes me take an anger bath each evening :D

Filling up is fine and after that is done I make sure to gently close that flimsy fuel door, brute force and it will fly away :)

Re: Economy Mode button, hate the default?!

Exactly my thinking but it is what it is.

It lists under symptoms but they list what is getting addressed.
- 2-1 shift
- not ECO mode behavior....

I'd assume they list this because they know...

Re: Economy Mode button, hate the default?!

You've got the 3.6l engine?
Let us know if this solved the ECO button default issue.
That button should be linked directly to the oil price, barrel goes up > button defaults to ON :-)
