Hello from Clovis,Ca

Hey everyone,

nice forum, seems great. i am in the market for a 2012 3.6L RWD JGC (either with leather/nav/sunroof or totally base model). currently have an 04 cts (also with a similar 3.6L) that i am trading for the jeep. i gotta couple q's for y'all:

1. should i hold out for 2013? maybe the JGC will get the new 8sp and increased mpgs?

2. how reliable is the 3.6L? is it as good as the ole 4.0L?

3. how does the RWD model maintain its driveability offroad/rain/snow? (i have an FZJ 80 that's my 4wd offroad/snow vehicle, the jeep will be our comfortable freeway cruiser for roadtrips and kids)

i've been all over the place searching for a new car, but the jeep seems promising (except for the few engine failures i've seen on this forum which i hope were flukes).

any help will be greatly appreciated.

thanks!

Welcome aboard I loved my JGC and I am returning to Jeeps cept I am getting a Wrangler Sahara. No worries this site has a lot of really great JGC owners that will share their thoughts on your questions. I did hear that the 3.6L had some decent reviews, but let the experts chime in.
