Re: First driving impression - Sell me wk2
I had a 2014 diesel Limited, which I had to turnback, and got a 2015 Overland v6 gas. In terms of handling, I much preferred the Limited. Find the Overland gasser more bouncy, and less able to hold a track in corners. Find it wandering a bit on the highway. Not sure this is because of the weight of the diesel, or the air suspension in the Overland. I haven't test driven a gas Limited, but I would spend some time in both a Limited diesel and Overland diesel. Also, if you poke around on this forum you'll see that there have been mechanical issues with the air suspension. Adds a lot of parts and pieces with irrelevant functionality (I am also a DC commuter).
First time I opened the hood on the gasser, I texted my buddies "where is the engine?" There is like a foot and half of open space in the front of the gasser as compared to the diesel.
I prefer the beige interior. Limited has black carpet, Overland has beige carpet...shows dirt. I would make sure to get the "Advanced Technology Package", the assisted cruise control is an absolute must in DC traffic.
Diesel is a much better drive, but am happily avoiding the dealer service dept...sigh
