How is it that a 2015 jeep altitude needs a whole Ned radiator? I bought this car not even a month ago brand new and when I noticed what looked like oil drips on my garage floor I thought maybe it was the oil filter loose so I drove it to the dealer and they said my oil wasn't leaking my radiator was. They showed me and said they'd need to keep it there because it wasn't safe to drive and the whole front end had to be dismantled so they could replace it with a new one!?. I did so much research and read so many reviews and I never thought a brand new 36k suv would have this kind of problem. I owned a GMC Yukon for 6 years before this jc and never had one problem with it. I'm beginning to think I made a huge mistake!! The more I scroll down and read I also see the transmissions seem to be problems too. I guess I should have done more research.... What's next? New transmission??!!.

This sounds more like a vent that a question, but I don't blame you one bit. The Italians. i.e. Fiat bought the majority of the listing/about to capsize Chrysler Corp in 2011 and are desperately trying to 'right' the ship. Whether they can remains to be seen

At least you have a warranty to take care of it! A radiator is a minor issue so don't worry too much about it.

I do like the warranty part but the other things I have read having me wondering if I should have just spent the extra 20k and got another Yukon. Do you think the RPMs going high when going down a hill and not touching the gas pedal are normal? Now I'm worried about the transmission...lol. Yep, I'm sure u can tell I'm not a guy asking these questions....

I had no clue whether you are a guy or not, but doesn't matter. I know women that know more about cars than most men. No need to demean yourself. But How high rpm's when going downhill, and steep or mild downhill?

2 sometimes 3 but there's no downshifting like my other car did. It's not a steep hill, mild.
