Re: caveat emptor - let the flaming begin

Statistically speaking, MCSA is only wrong 0% of the time. I would say he's several standard deviations away from the mean.

Re: caveat emptor - let the flaming begin

From my vantage point it looks like the overwhelming majority of '11 buyers are happy with their vehicles with mostly minor to no issues to report. I also agree that it will take more time to come to a definite conclusion, but all indications are that Jeep has done a much better job with this GC launch than the WJ and WK before it.

Personally, I think the 2nd MY is the sweet spot for purchase in terms of bugs being worked out, better pricing, and still a high level of content. History has shown this to true for many new model introductions. However, that doesn't make waiting the right choice. Everyone has to decide for themselves as to how to best spend their coin.

Quite honestly, the folks that bought the '11s are enjoying the piss out of them and I am jealous.

You can call me Owner Of A New 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland.

BTW... how has your experience with your own WK2 been? Any pics? Any feedback of performance, issues, etc that you've personally experienced? Just curious.

Which dealer, if you don't mind my asking (we're still looking)?

In case you haven't noticed, I don't buy first year vehicles. But I'm glad you did.

www.familyautos.com So far, they've treated me well. I got a fair deal on the Overland, the salesman wasn't pushy. Also, received 15% off accessories I've purchased and in spite of more labor to install (especially the rock rails) they honored the original estimate.

But! If I lived closer to Jeff D'Ambrosio in Downingtown, I may have chosen that dealer. But it was a bit too far to drive for routine service but I had a pleasant experience when I visited. I'm one of those people who like to bring back the vehicle to the original dealer for service. My thought is simple... if they wish for me to buy my next new vehicle from them, they had better treat me well when I'm there for service and/or warranty issues. (so far, so good)

I'll keep everyone posted if my experiences change with this dealer.
