You beat me to it. Yes have had my new JGC for 3 months. I wanted to shake it down before posting.
Vehicle specs: '14 JGC Summit, 4WD, 5.7L, Cherry Red/Morocco Black, 7 miles on odom, 11/6/13 build date- delivered 11/28/13, 3,900 miles of driving it...
Window/door seals- some rolled like before but I un-rolled them and they are fine so far.
Front Park Assist sensors- all fine.
Headlights-condensation on inside of both lenses -doesn't evaporate when TSB is followed exactly. The real issue is that someone must have had dirty gloves or hands when they assembled the whole assembly (probably supplier not JNAP) and there are smudges all over the main center globe that articulates. Hitting the dealer up for both of these on visit next week.
Rear fender and trim- same as before, sub-optimal design for Ohio winters and the huge icebergs that build up and hang out in the fender wells. They really adhere to the synthetic fabric liner in the wheel wells too.
Air Conditioner Filter- installed (wasn't in my '02)
Fog lights- no installation scratches, perfect.
Tailgate/taillights/shocks- better fitment than last one, fine for me.
Interior- all ok with speaker rings, console alignment, scratches, etc..
Electronics- just some teething issues that are all software related like the latest software TSB. It wasn't supposed to apply to me based on build date, but it did. DO NOT believe the TSB built date applicability guidelines, they may be wrong.
Driving- all good except a harmonic/fine vibration through steering column at 30 and 60mph regardless of road surface.
Giving it to dealer next week for some of the above plus a few other things like the satellite antennae TSB, tranny shifting TSB, possibly loose tranny bell housing bolts, false blind spot TSB, ACC/FCW Service Required warnings, HVAC Blower squeals on setting of 7, Blank/blue back-up camera screens and oil dip-stick tube leaking at base.
BTW, I LOVE this thing! The stereo ROCKS, technology is very useful, looks great, is sporty AND cush and is generally very fun to drive. I also installed a Corsa Cat-Back exhaust and it really sounds awesome. It is so fun getting in the throttle and just watching all the heads snap as they look for the "hot rod"....so funny when they realize it's a Jeep! BTW, if you want a Corsa for your '14 Summit Hemi the only way you can get one is to PM me. You can check out the specs, pics and videos in the Mod Write Ups sub forum.
