  1. Heated Seat

    Jkeaton spot on, new heat element on order. At almost for two years ive been receiving flyers for the extended warranty. I really do love the car...however as others have posted I might just need to pull the trigger on that before my time is up.
  2. Heated Seat

    Thanks guys, Going to the dealer on friday. Real close to the 3 year warranty so we will see. Will keep you posted.
  3. Heated Seat

    Today the heat to my passenger seat would toggle on and within a few seconds kick itself off. (my wife was pissed) Uconnect shows the toggle on, and I hear the slight click from the console as usual however turns off almost instantly. The car has been turned off multiple times and from other DCJDR forums seems like many of these heat elements fail relatively early. I found most of the complaints were on Ram and charger forums but im sure the same hardware and software is used in the dj as well . I took a quick look with a flashlight under the seat and didn't see anything disconnected or cut. Our DJ has 24500 miles on it and was bought new in june 2015. Sure...Its going to the dealer but has anyone else here experience this on their journey?

  5. Got my letter a few days ago.. It happens, but man I've been through the ringer...
  6. 2015 V6 FWD Acceleration Noise

    Went for my scheduled oil change and tire rotation that I purchased with the vehicle and presented the concern when scheduling the appointment. This is the Dealer I purchased the car from and the one Id like to service with however it is not local but worth the trip. The "Metallic clicking" noise upon acceleration wasn't found by the tech as the car had cooled over the hour the vehicle was there during the oil change and tire rotation. Luckily the service tech and service writer asked me to take them for a ride and when I got the car up to temp the noise came back every time upon acceleration at red lights and moving up on traffic... Im scheduled to bring it in with a rental car waiting until they isolate it. Again, the noise i hear on the v6 is not present until the vehicle is up to hot temperature and almost sounds like its low on oil,"tapping" noise just isn't as loud. Seems to be coming from the front left (driver side) compartment. Cant express enough how important it is to find a willing and good dealer. I no longer will deal with the most convenient and local dealer as their ownership and service department seems to be in shambles. Zappone in upstate NY seems to have the resources and willingness to care for those who do any business with them. No hassles just professional... Ill keep you posted and if anyone has any experience with this issue it would be much appreciated.

  8. To be fair, The OEM tires that come on the car are really quiet and smooth, however they are god and i mean GOD awful when wet and in snow. I don't expect them to last past 30 to 40k. This is almost true on any new vehicle I have bought. I wouldn't replace them with the OEM for sure but if you have a crossroad with the odd sized 19's your options are a bit limited. Looks like you have an sxt that has 18s so you might have some more options.
  9. 2015 V6 FWD Acceleration Noise

    No codes, No problems starting, car feels fine. Rattles only happen when car is in gear under stronger acceleration and is only audible. This has been ongoing for about two months now and I switched to 93 non ethanol for the past few tanks. (empty to full) I did do BG additives fuel and oil during all of my first few oil changes and have since stopped. I can have the car in Park and run the engine up and down without replicating the noise. Thanks
  10. I still love this car and all it has to offer, yet I've posted just as many complaints. Most of my issues have been resolved on this forum yet im looking for advice on something that has been posted before but is not a hot topic here. There have been posts in the past about noise coming from the front (in my experience left) side when accelerating. If I merge or even taking off from a red light the car sounds like "loose bolts tinkering" or something rattling around. This only happens when in gear. It stops or quiets down around 3k rpm. Many of the posts here don't have any follow up or have been closed...... If the car is in neutral or park and I hit the gas there is no noise besides the engine itself. Have anyone else had this? Or have you had this problem resolved? Seems like a transmission issue yet the old posts suggest engine mount torque. My v6 FWD CR has 17000 miles on it. Thanks
  11. Muffler Upgrade

    Looks Good! Not that I'm THAT old I enjoy how quiet and smooth my journey is. Does it sound nice or obnoxious? With the RT you obviously have the 3.6L.

    Rest in peace Rolly. Looks like the world has lost someone who genuinely cares about others instead of himself.
  13. Crossroad Front Bumper

    Many props to this effort with photos and description here. The information and content is much appreciated as well as your time. Ill update what I find once i get a few things done off the home checklist and have some free time. However, my concern in previous posts may be different from the separation and loose panels that you have shown now that I see the photos. I was referring to the gap and space below the headlights just forward of the front wheels on the bumper. Seems to be quite a bit of play there. The same goes for the lower rear bumper just past the rear tire well on both sides. My 15 CR seems to be tight in the area that has given you issues.
  14. tire wet protection

    But who can resist that black magic sweet cherry smell? Must......Eat....Some.... That gel does work quite well and lasts for a while without any of it flinging off. Just like other have said it makes your tires really dirty. Just scrub the tire down before using it again. Other than that its a good product.
  15. Crossroad Front Bumper

    Does anyone have a photo of this? My 15 CR bumpers have play on each side. R/L front and back, but I have yet to have to see any cracks. Notice the play when washing or waxing the vehicle most notably under the headlights. This might just be how the car is as I only have mine to report. Like BM said, I'm sure the bumper hasn't changed but I applaud the effort and might do the same fix as the noise and feel of this is pretty annoying. I would be interested to see how many people actually crack their bumpers or notices the same play in these areas. So, I've never taken my front grill off, when you added "Metal shims" do you mean that you added washers to a bolt to take up the space or welded spacers to the frame?
