Hello from Hull, UK

Hi people,

not an owner yet but already addicted. Just looking for the right vehicle(s) to come up.

I have a couple lined up to see at the weekend, a 3.0 CRD WK and a 2.7 CRD WJ. Love both models (and the ZJ) in different ways.

I feel a fleet coming on!

Hello, welcome aboard! I got the Jeep bug too! Always admired them and took the plunge only a few weeks ago, I think it's the vehicle I've always wanted but never knew it until now! Love it!

Re: Hello from Hull, UK

Considering the Brexit disaster and the fact that the Pound is now worth the same as leaves and twigs then I don't think a gas guzzling Jeep is going to pan out. 30mpg on diesel just doesn't cut it at £5.10/gallon.
Even a Patriot only drags out 42mpg.
Feeling a bit gutted today

Re: Hello from Hull, UK

Don't be dis-heartened, i'm averaging 18-20 mpg! I did my homework and knew what to expect so I've got no one to blame but myself, just making the most of the fuel that the planet has left to offer!

I know what to expect - nobody buys a GC for economic driving

I need to see that happens to fuel prices over the next 3-4 weeks. If I get the GC I'll want to drive it. All the time. Even when I don't really have anywhere to go!
