Want to bet other manufacturers prompted this? Bad optics. This should have been fixed before coming out with new Grand Cherokee instead of doubling down on it. If you are explaining or justifying, you are losing.Did they, or does Car and Driver want to create a "controversy"? Literally fake news.
Quote from the article: "told Car and Driver in a written statement responding to our request for comment on the issue"
So they are planning to create an "issue", gathering "comments" and then pretending like they are writing the article because someone demanded something, when it was them all along, the guy just agreed with them, but he didn't seem to demand anything from his own accord.
