Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

I am thinking about trading in my 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland for a 2017 Subaru WRX Limited with CVT before the Jeep's warranty expires.

Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

Funny. I have a CVT. Fun car but I want some comfort and size. The WRX is noisy. My wife hates it. She never liked taking long drives.

Get winter tires. Stock tires not good in the snow. I put Nokians on. Firm ride, handles like the car is on rails. CVT not great under hard acceleration. Why are u getting rid of the overland . I may purchase the extended warranty.

Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

For me a WRX would be a practical, fun-to-drive four-door sedan. I've owned four Subarus: SVX, 2006 and 2007 Legacy spec.B sedans, and a 2007 Outback, which I recently sold. They were trustworthy, unlike my 2014 Jeep, which I fear will strand me in the boondocks of southeast Arizona, where I live. If not a Subaru, then I may once again get an Audi, either a 2017 A4 or S4. The Grand Cherokee has its virtues, but not reliability or good driver visibility. Those A-pillars are dauntingly wide.

I've had several sets of Nokian tires, all of which were superb, but Nokian has no distribution in Arizona. For my Jeep, I'd get the OEM Goodyear Wrangler for a Grand Cherokee with Off Road Adventure Package.

An extended warranty may cover costs, but is no assurance that a Jeep will be reliable. The brand's reputation is well deserved, as I learned the hard way from owning a new 1987 Cherokee and a new 2014 Grand Cherokee.

Yep - the old lady's Legacy GT is being replaced with the WK2 Limited.

It was a great car for canyon carving and snow duties with winter shoes. Damn near unstoppable, with great road manners.

Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

I definitely had some serious growing pains with 2015 WK2. Hope I am through it. The Jeep is great in every way, reliability is hit or miss. FCA support just well it does not exist.

It is a Jeep thing. You love them but they demand some extra attention.

Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

My advice be positive. Take a proactive approach to service. It will all work out. It always does.
Plus man it is a Jeep how much more American can one get.

Re: Trading my WRX for Grand Cherokee Limited

I have 2000 miles on my Grand Cherokee and so far so good. I'm happy that I did not buy a used X5 or Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayanne.
