I totally get it, this is the first model year and all that entails with the GCL. That said I’m not sure I want to to be a 66k Jeep Beta tester.
I don’t have the time or inclination to sort through the various glitches that appear to be rampant with the L. I have not made up my mind but it sure is unnerving to $pend that much for a problem plagued vehicle.
I plan on a very serious face to face with my dealer prior to finalizing this purchase. Thoughts?

Well, I think you are over reacting. From everything I have been reading, people are finding little things, but Jeep is taking care of things. Get a good service contract and you can cya. On another Jeep vehicle, with service contract, I had them fix everything that went wrong, even a valve job at 50K miles was covered.
For me, personally, the GCL is a sweet spot of tech/comfort/off road chops. I am willing to put up with a few glitches for that.

Agreed - Jeep took a great leap forward and got a hardcore JK guy like myself to stay in-brand, sell my beloved Sahara, and try their new vehicle. I love it immediately. As for glitches, they are common in new models, and like Eki said: I am sure Jeep will make it right, they want people to want Jeeps forever. As for a serious face-to-face with your dealer, what is that going to accomplish? Dealers don't build GCLs - they just want sales. If anything, I'm happy the glitches seem to be consistent rather than different for everyone. I take those issues as ones Jeep will address widely.

Points taken and I agree …..up to a point. If my dealer steps up to the plate and seriously addresses all these glitches all will be fine. If not …. Oh well guess I will have chosen the wrong dealer. Guess if all else fails I can try a different dealer. This of course would be the case with any manufacturer .

I will say this: I purchased Max Care (75k/6yrs) because of all tech involved, and I never buy extended warranties. Paid about 1100 w/200 deductible. I figure one major repair outside of the factory period covers my spending. Good luck with your purchase! Don't let the stress of buying ruin the enjoyment of actually driving a great car!

I spent $70k in 2019 on the new Ram 1500. First 3 months were bug hell. Once they worked them all out the truck has been rock solid. I would think the same will happen here. Give it time to work them out and it will be a great vehicle!
