I would have to agree, that's probably near the top of the list I've seen so far.


Hopefully no one was hurt. Metal and plastic can be replaced.

Yes, fortunately our son was not driving when it happened -- it was parked along a street.

There is no way to adjust the brightness of the display when the backup camera is on and it's way to bright at night.

I must be one of the "lucky" ones, so far. No fires, shifting seems fine, milage 25.6 including a fair amount of off road driving, no surges of acceleration up or down hills. Have my fingers crossed at 6000 miles.

Boy, I agree on this one too! I just discovered this last night, and was really surprised at the low volume of air coming out of those center vents.......regardless of how high I had the fan cranked. That is going to suck come summer time here in AZ.

Call jeep cares. If you complained about an issue under warranty, and they have yet to repair it, you may still be entitled to get it fixed.

As far as mats and carpet. Dog hair wonít vacuum out. We have to use sticky lint rollers.

Just odered these. It's a real pain changing tire with those "lug bolts."
