Just to point this out, the recall over the original 8 speed gear selector in the Grand Cherokee was put out before Anton was killed, and not as a result of that incident. It was the first attempt at these newfangled joystick type gear selectors that aren't as intuitive as the PRND selectors that have been reverted back to. People were screwing the process up because you almost have to go to school to work the damn things, and wound up in dangerous situations, thus the recall.I wonder if snipping the sensor wire that lets the "brain" know if the seat belt is fastened or not. I always use my seatbelt, so I"m not worried about forgetting to put it on. The trailer thing is very very aggravating. Just because one guy killed himself by pinning himself against a gate, the other million of us get to have to compensate. Kind of like that idiot shoe bomber, now millions of us have to take off our shoes at the airport..
Unfortunately Auto-park, which really shouldn't be that much of a hassle, remained despite the use of a more traditional gear selector in the Wrangler.
