Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Our early May build 2015 "baby" Cherokee DID require the update, so I'm guessing most 2015 Grands also require it.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Let me preface this by saying that I agree "last use" would make sense when not given a preference somewhere. Seems that would make BOTH camps happy, and that should be the goal, though in some cases...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm sure it's like our 15 Cherokee with the feature. If the cabin temp is too far from what the climate control is set to, the feature is disabled.

I'm not sure why there's so much hate for this...

Re: Engine oil level above the MAX

The problem is that oil won't rise up into the dipstick tube until you break the seal. So let the Jeep sit for a while, pop the stick up an inch or so - enough to break the seal, then gently push it...

Re: Jeep CRD grand Cherokee performance data

I don't tow so I haven't paid too close attention, but the consensus is the Jeep temp gauge is linear and honest. If you're not in the red zone, you're not in trouble. Your Ford's temp went up too,...

Re: Reliability of the 2015 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

The only common problems with the 14/15 Ecodiesels are the P20EE errors (mostly 14's so far) and broken DEF injectors. The first seems to be resolved on the 15's and was a simple fix even on the 14's...

Re: WK2 Leads Satisfaction Survey, Fifth Year in Row

I just gotta say - I FRIGGIN' LOVE my 2014 Ecodiesel!

Coming from Toyotas and Subarus and Hondas I was SOOO worried about reliability. After 16,000 miles those worries were unfounded.

I love...

Re: green diesel engineering tune

I would contact them and ask. I would think worst case it would cost $100 to have them re flash, but worth asking.

I don't understand the problem? It breaks even in 3 years, you're ahead after that AND you get more HP and torque? That seems like a no brainier to me.
