Re: Oil dip stick

I change my own oil, but I asked a service technician at the dealership about this and he said the correct amount is 7.5 quarts (at least for the V8) even though the manual says 7. He said that for...

Re: My new JGC 2015 Overland first impressions

Owners manual says "short full throttle acelleration (within legal limits) is recommended during break-in" ( once fully warmed up, of course).

Re: Horrible Jeep Experience so far

If you're that worried about a diesel, the dealer can't get you a V8 or let you order one? You will notice the difference in torque between the diesel and the Pentastar.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

Yes, had to order mine to get a Limited with the V8, Quadradrive, air suspension, and no sunroof. Well worth it to get it exactly the way you want it!

Re: 5.7 Engine and 8spd Trans Temps

Those numbers are normal. The new 8 speed is designed to run much warmer than the previous transmissions.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

LOL! With an average of 80" of snow annually and two RWD vehicles that have to be stored during the winter, a lift is almost mandatory. A good air compressor gets my vote for most important accessory.

Re: For 5.7L HEMI: what octane rating of gas do you use?

12 mpg is terrible for the V8. 8700 miles and 17.7 lifetime average using Eco mode and 89 octane. Love the V8 combined with the 8 speed!

Re: Is this normal

On #2 are you feeling the MDS activating? At low speed and light acceleration it is noticeable as a slight vibration or growl. The 8 speed for the V8's has been pretty much flawless.

Re: Sales - v6 vs hemi vs diesel?

Also depends on the price of diesel relative to gasoline. Diesel savings get eaten up when it's 40 to 50 cents/gallon higher than regular which is usually the case in some areas.

Re: Sales - v6 vs hemi vs diesel?

The GA dealership I ordered from had about 80 GC's. Two had 4wd, one (Summit) with a V8, and no diesels. No wonder I had to order!
