Good choice! Nice to get into the current (and last) Grand Cherokee that's still built on the Mercedes ML chassis.

learn something new every day!

I bought ours at lease end.......knew the car, the history, how it was maintained, low miles garage kept, etc. 

 

But not sure I should have. 

 

The better the lease deal, the less likely it's a good deal to buy. Your residual might be above it's value at lease end. I think I paid over it's value just to get the car I knew. So do your math.

Was able to land a good deal for the Grand Cherokee.  Picked her up yesterday.  Will probably be selling my WeatherTech (Front/Rear) mats and Yakima Q-Tower/Q-Clips (roof rack base) from the Edge in the coming weeks.

Thanks. I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

 

One thing I will for sure miss is the ride of the Edge.  It felt more like a car than an SUV.  Loved the throttle response and shifting.  Felt very smooth to me.

 

The GC has these automatic eco settings engaged which are manually disengaged each time you start it.  Also, the 'Auto Stop' thing where it shuts the engine off when stopped.  It is annoying and has to be manually disengaged after each start.  There is a hack you can buy that plugs in to the vehicle that'll remember the settings.  But wish Jeep just allowed that to be disabled via the settings.

 

So far that is my only complaint.

I've heard that Chrysler/Jeep's UConnect is head and shoulders above other infotainment systems... have you found it to be as good as they say?

I've heard that Chrysler/Jeep's UConnect is head and shoulders above other infotainment systems... have you found it to be as good as they say?

 

Disclaimer. I'm coming from the Sync (2?) system in my '15 Edge and the Sync system in my '11 Mustang.  I can't compare this to Sync 3.

 

So far I really like it.  It is FAST.  Typing stuff in to the text areas is super quick.  It is easy to find things, to make changes, etc.  Since Sirius/XM is free I'm using that again and the way you can browse through it is awesome.  And the ability to block channels so they don't even show up while scrolling is awesome.  If Sync 3 isn't a huge leap from Sync 2....then this infotainment system is definitely better.  It is like comparing a cheap chinese knockoff android based tablet from 2005 to a new iPad Pro.

 

The UConnect thing is cool.  I can remote start, lock/unolock, locate my car, and have my car honk it's horn from my PC or phone. 

 

Android Auto is OK.  Probably the same in Sync.  Not a fan of it taking over my phone.  But it will be handy when I'm trying to navigate somewhere that I found on my phone.  Just plug it in the USB and the google maps Navi pops up on the screen.  It'll do Waze too.  UConnect allows you to send a destination to your car from your phone also.  I HATED using the Nav in Sync.  So slow to type things in.  With this one I don't think I'd mind because of how fast it is to respond.

Sync 3 has been rated higher than Uconnect in the reviews I’ve read. Sync 3 is fast and easier to navigate than MFT. The only issue I’ve had is the nav volume comes on too high even after you turn it down but that might have already been corrected.

Another thing I'll miss is the keypad entry.  That really does come in handy when I would run out to the car to grab something and I forgot my fob.  I probably used that a few times a week.

 

With Uconnect Go I do have the option to unlock from my phone, but that doesn't really solve the problem.  AND it can take 30 seconds for the unlock to actually happen.

 

Not sure why other manufacturers don't use keypads.

Me, either.  It's always been a mystery.   I'm sure the patents have expired by now considering they've been available for over 20 years.

 

I think Nissan used it on a couple of vehicles about 10 years ago.

Welp she was turned in today.  I really enjoyed her while I had her and it'll make a nice used car for the next owner.  She was very well taken care of.  I took out my WeatherTech mats, vacuumed, and threw in the original mats.  Looks like the day it rolled off the line.

 

I'll probably be posting the mats for sale in the classified section and that'll be all for me here.

 

To all that have helped with questions....thanks.  Great community here.  You may see me in the future when it is time for my next ride.  Still own my Mustang so will always be a Ford guy.

 

Good Luck.
