Let's Do Something About The Temperature Readings!

Don't know about anyone else, but it really pisses me off that I paid $34,000 for a new car and that the damn temperature is always about 10 degrees off. If it was 2 or 3 degrees off that would fine, but mine is almost always 10 degrees to high. I get a more accurate reading by sticking my hand out the window. Therefore I am asking that EVERY MEMBER of this forum please write, email, or phone Jeep to complain and ask that they fix this. Don't get me wrong, I love my commander and am generally not a complainer, but i like to get what I paid for. PLease help. Also if you do contact jeep please post a thread that contains a number only. Since I am first I will post a 1. THe next person will post a 2. This way we will have a running count of everyone who has complained. Thanks.... Here is the link to the page with their number, address, and e-mail.

There is, the dealer just repositions the sensor in the front grill. We had it done. It helps, seems pretty close.

No problem with my outside temperature reading. Everytime I check it with a spot that posts the temperature, my reading is within 2 degrees of the outside report.

Temperature reading stuck?

It seems like my outside temperature reading is stuck at 24 degrees in the information display, is there a way to reset this at all?

should I leave it disconnected for a period of time or just a quick disconnect/reconnect?

Question Outside Temp reading

Anybody having issues with the outside temperature reading being accurate? The other day mine stayed on 55 degrees for the entire time I was driving the Commander (it was actually closer to 72 outside). Yesterday it registered 72 at noon, when it was really closer to 85. Then today, it seemed to be working OK.

I searched for previous posts first, and didn't see anything related to this. Is mine just the freakazoid of the bunch? Should I invest in tiny suction cup thermometer for my windshield? <that would have to be an industrial-strength mercury tube!>

Mine's an '08, so as long as I can figure out which local dealers are still in business, it should be under warranty. Just wondered if anyone has had similar experiences. Thanks.
