Yeah. 'Cause as we all know, Grand Cherokees NEVER turn off in traffic...

(Ugh)

I've been seeing ads for a smaller Buick, possibly their version of the Terrain. It might be worth looking at.

The smaller Buick is really small, like Cruise hatch back but taller size. IMHO it is overpriced but not a bad little lux vehicle.... I start comparing those and then think a loaded Terrain would be nicer.

Re: And so it continues...

My next door neighbor has a Terrain and likes it a lot. Too small for me, (would prefer a Grand Wagoneer) but not a bad vehicle. They take it to Florida from PA every year, and he says it's comfy on the highway and good on gas. Also hasn't had any problems since he bought it several years ago. I'd much rather have a JGC, but certainly understand your thinking.

Yeah, I was sure I was going to get some abuse over this one.

I'd rather have a JGC as well... But, well, this is a long road that I and others have been down. Ours is running great right now, no issues apart from minor Uconnect glitches (nothing like some have had), but like it or not, Chrysler is buying it back now, which means taking a chance on another.

And there it is.

I don't want to continue jacking this thread, so this is probably the last I'll say about that here. But abuse is fine. I can take it. I know some people will trash just about anything that isn't a Jeep. I get it. I'm a Jeep guy too. Maybe just not a "new" Jeep guy right now.

No worries, the title "and so it continues" applies to you just as much to me

Sad but true. We have been co-conspirators on the two scariest threads on the forum lately.

Hope that ends soon. Just got numbers on the Terrain. Looking more and more likely that's the way we go.

Re: And so it continues...

The wife has a new Explorer and loves it...bigger than the JGC. I did see a commercial for a pretty good deal on the GMC Arcadia which with this years refresh looks really good...also a little bigger than the JGC.

So are you going with the Denali?

blackknight is on a distinguished road
We had a 2011 loaded Terrain. We had the V-6. The mileage was worse than the Grand Cherokee. Other than that it was a good solid vehicle. It was too small for our family so we traded it for a Acadia Denali. My wife likes it much better, mainly because of the extra room.

Driving my Enclave reminded me of piloting a tugboat.
