You've been reading my book.

My wife and I had an incredible Toyota previously (165,000 completely problem free miles). We came within an inch of getting a 4Runner but opted for the Summit V6. ...

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

Sorry, I don't know what "what build" means.

2014 V6 Pentastar MPG

The odometer just clicked over 5,000. The last 1100 was a road trip thru the backroads/mountains of New Mexico, Colorado and Utah (maybe 15% city driving). On the trip, we averaged 24 MPG.

BTW,...

5,223 miles and my transmission, from the first mile, has been so smooth I have to watch the RPM's to see it shift - it's so smooth I literally can't feel it.

Re: Radiator issues 2014 V6 Pentastar

Got my Jeep back today. They said the problem was caused by a faulty module that resulted in the radiator fan not kicking on.

We'll see.

Thanks everyone for their feedback.

The feedback about a bad radiator cap makes sense. The cap definitely didn't lock down tight when I turned it.

Re: Billet silver or granite crystal

I just did.

It's a lighter shade of black but it's black.

Plus when it gets just a little dust on it, it looks dirty black.

Re: 2014 Diesel Fuel Filters

Note - the PDF showing the directions for changing the oil filter on the V6 Pentastar in the first link shows the 2013 filter. Use that filter on the 2014 and you will ruin your engine.

Re: Billet silver or granite crystal

The granite is nothing like it is portrayed on the Jeep website - it's MUCH darker in real life - another shade of black really.

I've got the 3.6 in my Summit - I'm averaging 22+ mpg at 2,900 miles with about half of those city miles - I freakin' love it - plenty of power and smooth as silk.
