1) Not being able to shift to Neutral in Off, Acc or On positions. First car I've ever owned that I can't coast down the driveway in before starting, so as not wake up my lady when I leave the house early. And it's annoying having to start the engine just to move the Jeep forward a foot so I can open the tailgate when I've parked too close to the cabinet in the garage.

2) Having the top dog Grand Cherokee but not having the power folding mirrors option that some lower model Grands do, and my last 2 cars have had.

Nothing that drives me crazy but I would prefer manual climate control so you can set the temperature coming out of the ducts to a constant
temperature and leave it there.

The automatic climate control is like a house furnace that turns the heating or cooling off when it reaches a certain temperature.

The seats could use 3 temp settings instead of 2.
The steering wheel would be better with 2 heat settings.

The wipers close when you stop the engine instead of staying up if you want to change the blades.

In autowiper setting none of the intermittent settings work.
Autowiper should be last setting before slow and fast.

No DRL setting that turns off with the vehicle.

However with 475 hp HEMI engine and 8 speed transmission all is forgiven

My 2012 was great on everything and bone stock it was never beat by any bone stocks with the 8 speed at the track. The only thing they had to replace at 18,000 miles was #8 injector as it was hung wide open. It must of been all those 1/8 mile passes at the track lol. It was better overall than my 2007 was but was 302 lbs heavier than my 07 was but had 55 more hp and bone stock on 98 octane was .15 faster in the 1/8 mile than the 07 was on 91 octane.

Vibration when cylinders deactivate while cruising.
Rev matching disappeared after an update. This gets me soooo pissed.
Suspension starts off stiff as if on SPORT mode, I have to switch to SPORT and back to AUTO to get the normal ride.

Good topic!

#1 with a bullet is that damn MDS and the associated drone. Worst I have heard and any vehicle I have ever driven equipped with cylinder deactivation

#2 not being able to turn the damn radio OFF! Instead we get a "mute" button??? So every time I start the car the radio turns itself on. Sometimes I want it off and to stay off!

#3 the scalding hot temperature of the heated steering wheel. Give me a "low" setting like the seats and it would be great

#4 the auto windshield wipers which sometimes work perfectly, and other time (particularly with road spray) seem to forget to activate for extended periods of time

that's all I got for now....
