Just finished travelling and exploring Maine in our 2014 Limited. We averaged 29.75 mpg and did 670ish miles on a tank of fuel. Two thirds of that was up and down in mountain terrain and on the Turnpike doing 72mph.
Jeep is getting ready to hit 22,000 miles. So far so good, no issues. Next weekend we go camping again and will be taking our travel trailer! More pictures to come!.

Maybe there is hope for mine after all......would like to think I just had to work out the bugs.

500 mile road trip towing the camper and two kayaks on the roof of the Jeep. Going thru the mountains of upper Maine to Baxter State Park. 90% Turnpike towing at 60 mph. Roundtrip netted me 17mpg. Was close to 80F outside coming back and the oil temp peaked at 234 going up the steepest grades in sixth gear.
I am taking it in tomorrow to get the UConnect system updated. I want to ask to see if their are any transmission updates to the software while I am there.

why wouldn't you update the UConnect yourself? All you do is download the update to a thumb drive and stick that into the USB slot in that cubby hole and wait. It's pretty easy...

I tried that before and ended being more than a pain then not. Had to download a download software thingy to the laptop. Was just easier to take it to the dealer.
With the tranny update...it will now shift to a lower gear if going down a hill and the cruise control is preset to a certain speed. Overspeeds by 5mph, it downshifts to a lower gear to slow down. Didnt do that before.
