I am scared what the pricing will be when they redesign the Grand Cherokee...
Well, if this isn't perfect timing. Just discovered the cause of the noise in the front of my Caliber tonight...
That's a tear in the front subframe.
I'm 12 months out of the extended subframe warranty, practically to the day. And yes, my car was inspected annually by the dealer, where they always told me it was fine.
Dealer seems a little sketchy since that would have shown something years ago.
That's my thought too.
(This is all part of my denying valid warranty claims issue with FCA Canada and my dealer)
Here are the new USB plugs for the rear seats, WITH USB type C
Sounds to me like FCA-Canada sorta sucks.
Not sure who is actually to blame - dealer or FCA Canada, but yeah.
I think its a common dealer issue. Whether that stems from the manufacturer in some way too, I don't know. For instance, I know the battery in my Liberty is elderly and should most likely be replaced. Not a peep out of the dealer when I took it in recently. The tires are elderly too, and not a word. The shocks too probably are coming up on replacement time. Nothing. I've been holding off on replacing because I'm probably retiring the beast in the next few months (hopefully), otherwise I'll be doing some repairs/replacements. For my wife's Buick, I checked the date on the tires and they too are getting up there in age and not a word from the dealer, other than plenty of tread life. The only one who seems to pick up on issues is the Ford dealer who said my tires need to be replaced and the front rotors need to be replaced soon.
I often wonder, do they even look at the vehicle when they do an "inspection". And if so, do they avoid mentioning potential issues because they figure it will eventually lead to a bigger issue that will cost more money to fix? Not everyone has the time to inspect everything themselves routinely, nor do they have the expertise to know what to look for. Admittedly, I'm a big skeptic when it comes to evaluating people's intentions and reasoning, for good, bad, or indifferent.
2019 KL Cherokee Pricing for US and Canada
2019 Cherokee US, Canada pricing (at https://www.allpar.com/forums/threads/2019-cherokee-us-canada-pricing.170123/ )
Depends on the dealer & service guy. We had one tell us one side of our rear suspension needed work, and a few other things, but for the most part, they only do what they're asked. We haven't gone to the dealer for work in a while, because money is very tight atm, but I'm sure they'd try to talk us into a set of 5 tires if we did go in there. Mostly because, I think, when we bought it, we spent something like $700+ doing maintenance on it in one go, so they think anything they spot will be approved for work right then. If they think/know they won't get much off you when you're there for the average oil change, they're not going to try too hard. It'd be easier to convince the non-enthusiast old person in line behind you, to have additional work done etc.
Base price for the Trailhawk is $33320. I guess the equivalent for Liberty would have been the Renegade, which I have. I think base price for the 2003 MY was around 23k, and mine came to roughly $27k. So all in all, not a huge price increase over the years although not exactly apples to apples.
Cherokee base model pricing is only a few hundred dollars more in CAD. Happy about that.
One of the nicest things to hear about the reviews from the '18 Wrangler and '19 Cherokee is no one is complaining about the lack of power from the 4 cyl... Hopefully, the etorque system gets added to more models.
