Re: Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

I can see validity in both sides sides of the argument. But this shifter shit is beyond old already and the continuing arguing over it is pointless. I don't think I've ever come across a subject out...

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I hear people complaining about the small chrome strip on the door by the shifter. I too think it cheapens the look, but after some thought, it may come in handy. Since I have Dish network on my...

Re: 2014 Fuel Lid opens by itself?!

I have a 2011 JGC, and I am not sure if they changed the location of the button to open the fuel door for the 14MY (unlikely, but I have seen some odd things in my 20 years in the auto industry).

Re: Grand Cherokee under investigation

I've used the manu-matics with the console shifters and I hate them. If I don't have a clutch, there's no reason to have a stick shifter to change gears manually.

With the paddles, I can shift up...

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Just get the bronze pack from Customtronix. No hardware, easy install. But you might still want to ask for the rollback software to get back to OEM.
Thanks,

Yes, the ability to set eco off as default is only MY15 but there is a TSB out on it as apparently it isn't always accepting your setting.

Re: Class action lawsuit against Chrysler

Add to that the fact that class action lawsuits can drag out for years. Most people will have cut their losses and will be well into another vehicle or two before that happens.

Class action lawsuit against Chrysler

I think its time some serious legal action needs to be taken against Chrysler in regards to the bad 8 speed transmissions. They know they have a bad product and the band aid TSB's are not working.
