About to go Jeep

Hey all - first post here, found this forum after doing a bunch of research and following link after link, read through some really good information on here!

Anyway, I am very close to pulling the trigger on a GC Diesel Limited here in Australia. I had borrowed a 2011 Petrol GC from work and absolutely loved it to the point I didn't want to give it back so thought I would get my own, but wanting to cut down a little on fuel from my guzzling Commodore I thought I would go Diesel.

Turns out they are super hard to find at reasonable prices second hand - but I have found a 2011 Limited in super good condition, it has done 80,000km, always serviced at Jeep dealership with nothing really standing out. I had a drive and wow it was incredible especially compared to the petrol variant.

But, I just wanted to know if there is anything I should look out for, I was a little concerned with the fact it had done 80,000km at first but considering it is a Diesel I guess this is ok. The previous owner had no complaints and traded it in for a 2014 GC Limited.

I can rack up some serious KM's myself averaging maybe 150km a day for work, 95% of this driving is on freeways though so constantly on cruise at 100km which I have heard is really good with these diesel jeeps.

But yeah, if there is anything I should be looking out for I would love to hear your thoughts

Cheers

Hi DJ - Welcome to Jeep Garage.

I can't comment on a 2011 WK2 but you may want to post within the other export forum thread for more exposure to your questions. It's here:
