#2418 of 2515 Questions about 2007 Grand Cherokee
May 11, 2007 (9:26 am)
I'm considering buying a new 2007 Grand Cherokee Limited 4X4. I took one for a test drive yesterday and liked it although I must admit to being concerned about reliability. My list of contenders is pretty much whittled down to the Jeep and, believe it or not, the Hyundai Santa Fe Limited. Without getting into the pros and cons of each vehicle, I have a few Qs regarding the Jeep:
- Can the factory navigation unit be dealer-installed in a 2007 that came from the factory without navigation?
- Are the steering wheel cruise control buttons illuminated at night?
- What kind of real-world gas mileage are folks with the 4.7 liter V8 getting?
- Are there any common reliability issues that I should be aware of?
Thanks for your help!

Most of the transmission complaints have been from GC 4WD owners.
Any known transmission/stalling issues with the 2WD GC (2005 & 2006 model years)?
#2421 of 2515 roof bars on 2001 Grand Cherokee
Jun 11, 2007 (9:20 am)
Trying to fit some lateral roof bars. Do I need to remove the plastic end covers on the rails to be able to slide bars on? Any clues on how to remove these (if necessary) without damaging them?
Thanks in advance
#2422 of 2515 Transmission slippage???
Jun 20, 2007 (4:45 pm)
I currently own a '01 JGC Laredo w/4.0L 2WD powertrain. Aside from brakes, the power window failure and the crazy death wobble issues, it has been surprisingly a good SUV. BUT.......................
At times, when crusing at around 70 mph, the transmission seems to slip in and out of overdrive, not really bad, but it is noticeable. I was wondering if any of you guys were experiencing any of the same issues. Not sure if it's a sensor or not as it shifts fine any other time, no stalling issues or anything of that nature. It has 121k highway miles on it. Any suggestions or help is definitely appreciated in advance. Thanks...

Yep. I do it every 25k miles. Just recently changed about 3 months ago.
BUT, since then, that's when it has started. Great idea. Thanks

do you change it yourself?
if so you could have installed the filter wrong has to be installed right
if you have the 45rfe trans you put the o ring seal on the oil pump then install filter (don't install on filter put on pumppick up) also did you use the right trans fluid? atp type 3 plus or atf type 4 (not dextron Repeat not dextron)
#2426 of 2515 2007 JGC Overland a lemon??
Jun 22, 2007 (8:37 am)
I have no idea if I am in the right forum, but I need some help. I bought a 2007 JGC Overland February 11, 2007. As of right now, my Overland is back at the dealer for the 4th time because of the check engine light coming on. Every time I take it in, they tell me that the problem "is the O2 sensor, but it can't be that because we have already replaced it" they keep the car from either 2 days to 7 days and then return it to me. Of course the light is off, but within 2-4 weeeks, the light is on again and back to the dealer I go....... This time, I am dealing with the service manager at the dealer, and a letter will be going direct to corporate back East (I believe) Does anyone have any thoughts???
#2427 of 2515 2005 GC Brake Controller Installation
Aug 14, 2007 (3:28 pm)
Has anyone installed a brake controller on a 2005 Grand Cherokee? I have the factory installed trailer towing package. Is there a connector under the dash? If so, does a Dodge connector work? If no connector, where are the wires located? TIA
