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

With the paddles, I can shift up...

You're crazy of this makes you want a '16 model. Issues like this make me want to run far far away from Chrysler.

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.

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.

Self sealing fule caps or capless fule caps
Are made for stupid people, lazy people who can't undoo the cap and remeber to replace after buying fuel.
