I noticed when using ACC, if you are following a vehicle that slows down and use the left turn signal to pass it, the ACC accelerates the vehicle automatically. I just now noticed it states this in the OM.

Manual shift

Sometimes when I accelerate after a rolling stop, or a quick turn the Grand Cherokee kind of bogs down like it didn't shift down far enough. I just "tap" the shift lever to left twice (first tap takes it out of drive, the second tap shifts the tranny down a gear). BOOM! It's like hitting the nitro switch. I'm out-a-there! Keep my eye on the RPM's and tap the shift lever right to manually shift up and eventually back to drive. I love it!

Not really an Easter Egg. That is an inherent function of a manual gear shifter.

By auto headlights do you mean DLR's?

In the 2013s no tissue box in console and the remote window roll down does not work. In the Overland, no room in compartment under driver seat.

I found that my temperature readout remembers the temperature it was when you last shut the car off. So if you drive to work in the morning and it is 60 degrees it will still say 60 when you start the Jeep at lunch. Then it goes up to the current Temp. over the next few Min. Kind of cool actually. Anyone else notice this?

* Small compartment in the lid of the armrest. It is a kleenex dispenser. You can get the small plastic-wrapped packages at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. You open the "slit" in one side of the package to allow for dispensing, and then insert it into the compartment. You will have to squeeze the package in there, you cannot hurt it. Do the bottom 1st, then the top - now "smooth" everything out and - volia - handy kleenex dispensing.

* Hidden compartment under the driver's seat. Some people question how to access it, other say they have components mounted on the lid or inside the compartment. I have a Laredo X with Q1. There is nothing mounted on the lid or inside the compartment. To access, motor the driver's seat all the way forward, pull back your left rear seat floor mat, grab the "rounded" rear edge/handle on the cover and lift up. There are two plastic tabs that will "snap" open and closed. After the rear edge is pulled up, the front edge will "snap" open or use it like a hinge. In my photo, I left the seat in my normal driving position, so motored all the way forward the lid will open even further. I can reach in and place items just fine without moving the lid. The compartment is plastic-lined.
So just squeeze in there ? I don't get it,how do we put the Kleenex box in there ? What size is it ?

Thanks

Not a "box" - just one of those little travel-sized packages with a plastic bag as a container.

With the rear seats folded forward, you can lift the hinged cover behind them and there is quite a bit of small or soft storage behind the seats and under the rear floor. In fact it looks fairly easy to remove the whole plastic carpeted "load floor" and spare tire compartment. (If you need height for a Great Dane or a spare Hemi).


One of these is a turbo diesel.

In my Overland V8, there is a tank mounted there for the air suspension.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but today I learned that if you're running low on gas, the remote start won't work. At first I thought something was wrong...turned out I was running on empty. Nice feature so you don't inadvertently run out of gas trying to warm up your car.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned these yet...

Open up the center console all the way (so you can see the deep portion). There is a little notch out of lip of the storage area, on the passenger side. When the lid is closed, this notch leaves a small opening into the otherwise sealed storage area. I couldn't figure out why Jeep left this small hole there. Then it occurred to me... it's about he same diameter as a coiled up phone charger cord. So now my iPhone charger is always connected to the 12v jack inside and dangling from this hole. When I need some juice, I just reach over to grab the cord (usually hanging between the center console and the passenger seat) and plug it in. No fumbling with cords to plug them in, etc.

Here's another one. The first time I turned on my brights, I noticed a message that said, "Auto High Beams On." My first thought was, "Does that mean what I think it means?" Sure enough, the first car that came along and the Jeep automatically switched them off. When the car had passed, the high beams went right back on. AMAZING!!

Sometimes it's the little things that make you appreciate a vehicle. These two features, plus the "favorites" settings in my 730N radio, are my favorite Easter Eggs.
