That is true, however having had the MB and currently the Grand Cherokee, I will say that after two months of ownership, I still haven't mastered the Chrysler shifter. The MB one was a wand on the steering column that was intuitive, while the Jeep one is on the console and counter intuitive. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a big recall over this, although not sure what they can really do. Might still be kicking myself for not grabbing a Q5 instead of the Jeep.
Just watched the evening news. Apparently Jeep Cherokees, and possibly some other Chrysler product, have an electronic shift mechanism like what one finds on Mercedes (makes sense for some shared tech between them). Well, some of the owners are suing because you don't get the mechanical "clunk" of an older style transmission.
So, I guess Mercedes drivers really are superior to Chrysler drivers?
