Re: Michelin Latitude Tour

Mine are about 3/4 shot at 30,000 miles. They are smooth and quiet, but were the worst tires I've ever had for winter traction. I got an extra set of rims off ebay and put true winter tires on them.

Re: Exterior Door Lock Button: multiple presses to lock doors?

My 2012 Limited has had this issue since I got it in Dec 2011. Dealer could not fix it. About half the time, one press will do it. Other times it takes more presses. After I started counting, the...

Re: Transmission Shudder

That's great news. Do you know specifically what the updates were? This shudder/fishbite issue is the only complaint I have about my 2012 Limited, but it is plenty annoying.

Re: Snow!! Not so good...

I replaced the Latitudes with GY Ultragrip Ice. I used to believe that only studded tires would help on ice, but not anymore. I've been testing them on every little icy patch in the yard or back...

Re: Snow!! Not so good...

Re: 730 RHR/Iphone 5

My 2012 Limited has had the same issue since I got it in Nov 2011. It works about half the time. Lately, I've had better luck with Bluetooth streaming than via the USB connection.

Re: 2012 WK2 stutter

Thanks for posting that. It sounds like the same issue that has been frequently called "shudder'. My 2012 5.7 has it big time and several visits to the dealer have not helped. My friends 2011 5.7...

Re: Trying to decide: 20" wheels vs 18"

Well, that's at least two of us. My '12 Limited had 20" wheels on the lot, and I had them put 18s on. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I much prefer the look with a beefier sidewall. I do go offroad a...

Re: Front end trailer hitch

One reason is to allow using a hitch-mounted winch on either the front or back of the vehicle.

Re: Transmision module replacement

Do you have any further details about this? Software version? My 2012 Limited 5.7 shudders pretty badly on hills and I'd sure like it fixed.

Re: WK2 Hemi Towing

I pulled about 7,000 lb about 40 miles with no problems at all. But then, I used to pull the same load behind my 2006 Trailblazer with straight 6 with no problems either.

Re: Auto Tilt Mirrors

I like the tilting mirrors, but would prefer that the driver's side tilt less than it does. I turn this feature off when towing because it tilts the mirrors so low you can't see the trailer.
