I bought a new Overland V8 in March 2012, just as we were getting started on a cabin construction project a couple hundred miles from our home. About a week ago, I bumped over 80,000 miles, and I have to say (knock on wood) that it's been a pretty good experience. Issues to date:
-Noisy sunroof when delivered (fixed by dealer with an adjustment).
-Brake booster failure at approximately 50K miles (fixed by dealer for the $100 deductible of my extended warranty coverage; possibly the same defect that led to a later recall)
-Occasional squeakiness from somewhere around the cargo area in cold temperatures (no resolution, but it goes away when temps get near freezing).
-A couple of alarming instances of the engine dying when decelerating from highway speed (I was near the tuneup interval and when the dealer replaced by spark plugs, the original plugs were toast; no recurrence after that).
That's pretty much it. The ol' GC has been extremely reliable and actually seems to run and shift better than it did in its younger days. It's done everything I've asked of it with minimal hiccups, and I'd rate its overall quality and reliability as highly as anything I've owned in 44 years
of driving. It's actually a bit of surprise to me, as Jeep often gets knocked for quality issues.
How's your high mileage WK2 holding up?
