There's a bunch of other crap I've turned off as well.
Most of it can be done through the Uconnect system.
The automatic emergency brake?
Nope, don't need that. I'll decide when I want my emergency brake to come on.
Nothing quite as frustrating as starting to back your car out, and it doesn't move because the brake set itself. I turned that off.
Another one, the automatic door locks.
This is the feature that as soon as you hit 15mph, the doors lock.
The only time I lock my doors is when I leave my car in a parking lot.
There will be those who argue this.
I don't have any kids, so I don't have to worry about them opening the doors while I'm going down the road.
And if I did have kids who were stupid enough to do that, well, let's just say I don't need kids that stupid.
I think if a person gets in a wreck and is incapacitated, it might be nice, and quicker for responders to open the doors for a rescue if they're not locked.
If I lived in the ghetto or NYC or something, I might want my doors locked at all times, but I don't.
There was a few other things I had to change too, but they're not coming to mind at the moment.
But don't get me wrong, other than a handful of unnecessary safety and feel good features, I love my new Jeep.
It's a hell of a nice full time 4 wheel drive car. More bells and whistles than any car I've ever owned.
On the same note, $30K is about $25K more than I've ever spent on a car in my life.
But being almost 60, I think it's time to own something fully warrantied and dependable that isn't 20 years old with over 100,000 mile on it.
Been snowing, freezing rain here last few days so I have not taken wifey out and do some of those settings you are referring to but I saw that in the book. I did manage to program the garage door opener for her and need to program the auto adjust seats as well.
I ordered her the full complement of WeatherTech mats including the rear cargo one and today I need to call and get the Jeep a Wool-Wax undercoating. I am not a great fan of lanolin based undercoating, but that is the one she likes and that is the one she shall get.
She also would like the rear cargo area tonneau cover for her shopping trips with her mother so I need to get after that as well.
