When I got the vehicle home from the dealership it was getting dark so I didn't give it the best inspection. The next day I checked fluids and pressures. When I pulled the dip stick there was no oil on it at all, not even on the very tip. I had to add 2.5 quarts of oil to it just to get it to within the normal range. The transmission is sealed, so I can only hope it has the proper level of fluid in it. The windshield washer resevoir was empty. A minor inconvenience, but annoying that it came from the factory empty. The tires were also overinflated by 10-15 PSI. This is fairly typical to keep the tires from getting flat spots while the vehicle sits in storage for a long period of time. However, they were well beyond the maximum safe pressure and the dealer should have lowered them to the vehicle's recommended pressure before releasing it to me. Overall I will say this about any vehice; check the oil before you accept it. If the oil is low you should probably demand that the dealer check all of the fluids and pressures so that you do not damage your vehicle during the break in period. full 2014 Jeep Cherokee review
