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.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.
