it's interesting to read about all the people looking at various vessels, just to see when their Jeep is coming.
I thought I spice this up a little and give you my experience with a KL Limited Diesel.
So far dne 4,500 km and had four visits to the dealership.
First one was a lose centre console, which was fixed in a few minutes.
Second visit was the 1,000 km service, pluse the replacement of the in- dash compartment (rattling noise) and the replacement of the front left door trim (window tinter daaged it).
Third visit was unpleasant, as the alternator belt flicked off and wrapped around various items in the engine bay.
I was able to drive the car to the dealer, thanks to electric power steering.
Fourth visit was yet another snapped alternator belt, but only because dealer forgot to tighten the air condition compressor, so that the belt rubbed and produced a lot of smoke due to burning rubber.
The spare parts holding is an issue, as the first belt came from WA (only in the country) and the second belt and the bracket from a car in the yard.
The car needs some major attention in regards to cabin noises at the 10,000 service. Very annoying rattles from dashboard, both front doors and the B-Pillars (seatbelt areas).
The Navigation system is okay, but the system can't pronounce street names, which a $99 system can!
The Stop Start Automatic is nerving, when the traffic light changes to gree shortly after a stop or the traffic flows again. It just takes the car a while to get going again. I switch it usually off, as there is no factory option to do so.
The air con has no option to run on Auto but without engaging the A/C, which I personally dislike.
Fuel consumption on mixed freeway/highway and city driving is 7.4 litres.
I hope this will go down, as it is a tad high. I should easily achieve under 7 litres, especially when using the freeway a lot.
I also discovered something intresting with the roof, as it seems it is not welded properly. Do yourself a favour and touch the roof when washing the car (or when you feel like it). It is possible to get the "sheet metal" to hit a cross bar. I never experienced something like this with any other car.
The lag when accelerating is also nerving and caused by the drive-by-wire throttle. It doesn't happen when drving in sport program.
Overall not a bad car, but the quality is not of a $50k car in my opinion.
