Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

Good points made by all. I remember being at my brother's home in rural Oklahoma late one moonless night in misting rain. My brother led me there during the day, but with no cell signal, only GPS...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

Based on what I am hearing from corporate contacts, I surmise that no map updates are planned at all for 2014-2016 model years. I am not sure FCA planned this all along, but it seems to be a business...

Re: "Texas Dealership" VERY Disappointed - Twice!!!

If you live in Texas, you may want to review the law on front license plates. It was once a ticketed offense with no fine due to a loophole, but the law was clarified and changed Sept 2013. The law...

The only time I tried a truck stop, which is 20 miles out of my way, I was treated like "small" nuisance in the truck lane. So, I prefer to search for the best DEF lot date available and...

Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

I think this claim is absurd. My 2014 GC EcoDiesel was the first delivered to Texas back in Nov 2013. I suspect the dealer used Mopar DEF on the first fill as they made a mess filling the tank...

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

River Oaks will treat you right. The only problem with that dealership is the congested traffic in the area.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

If driving minimal miles and living in the south, I would not fill DEF as it degrades in the heat. For summer, especially in Texas where I am, 1/2 full is sufficient.
