2014 Jeep GC Laredo V6 RWD. Is it me or does anyone else think the accelerator is super touchy? It is hard to not do jack rabbit starts. I have driven two 2014 GCs and both did this. If it is normal I just have to lighten my foot. Thanks.
Your driving a v6 how bad can it be? lol. You can recalibrate the throttle, or at least you could on the older ones. The 8 speed has a very short 1st gear so its designed to do that. You could use your paddle shifters, and select a higher gear, but thats tedious at every light.

try this:

1. Find an unused section of road with a good spot to pull-off/turn-around.
2. Pull off of the road and shut your car off.
3. Turn your key to the "On" position (but don't start the car), and wait for the 'idiot' lights to go out.
4. Press down on the accelerator, and let it back up.
5. Turn your car off.
6. Re-start your car and cruise up and down the road testing your throttle responsiveness.
Depending on how fast/slow you do the 4th step, your throttle will either become more or less sensitive/responsive.
Repeat steps #1 through #5 as needed until you're satisfied that your throttle response is as good as it's going to get.
