Re: Extended Warranty

I bought a Chrysler extended warranty. I thought there was a way to look it up and confirm on the jeep website using your VIN number. Anyone know how to do this?

Re: I need to service my emergency brakes.

Do you know how difficult it is to get to those pads? Do I have to remove the calipers to get the rotors off to get to them? Thanks.

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. The brake pedal for regular driving is fine. The rotors didn't seem especially hot after I got to where I was going. It is the emergency/parking brake pedal that...

I had a change in my routine hooking up the jeep to the motorhome today, and as a result, I towed it with the emergency brake on by accident. Now when I push the pedal, I don't get the same...

Is this the correct oil filter?

I went to my garage to change the oil. I have several vehicles. Found Mobil 1 filter M1-210. Is that the correct filter for the 2011 JGC for Hemi?

Thanks!

Re: Forward Collision Warning system

I have found that if you are braking a little, it won't activate, because it assumes you are already braking for a reason. One way to test it is to not slow down when the car in front moves right to...

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control ... deal breaker?
