Thinking of selling my 2006 WK

Am I crazy for thinking about trading in my 2006 3.7L WK for a VW Tiguan?

I know this is probably the wrong forum to ask this, as I would most likely get the exact opposite responses from a VW forum. So please don't flame on me too badly.

Reasons for wanting to sell are:

-Coming up on 65,000 miles, and not looking forward to not only the upcoming expensive maintenance, as well as this is typically the time when things start falling apart and going wrong.

-I'm really just getting bored with my WK. I've had it for 5 years now, and have modded just about everything that I've wanted to, so I think I'm just itching to start a new project.

-For some reason I really just like the Tiguan. I just recently purchased a 2012 Passat for my wife, and really love VW's after owning it for the past several months. I want something in AWD, and a vehicle that is not only fun to drive, but both mod worthy and attractive.

Plus, I will have a good amount of goodies that I will be parting out. Off the top of my head.

-Black SRT Reps
- 20" American Racings Wheels (black w/ polished lip)
-Tinted Tails
-SRT Grill
-HID's
-SRT Roof Rails
-Commander Shift Nob
-Stillen Covers, etc.

Opinions are welcome.

Thanks,

Chris

Re: Thinking of selling my 2006 WK

I don't know man, your Jeep looks pretty sick. I'm not trying to be biased or anything but the VW Tiguan looks like a sissy or soccer mom vehicle lol. It doesn't say aggressive like your WK. You could keep your Jeep and take pride in all the mods you've done and be happy with that or you could be like most people and have to have "more, more, more".

Re: Thinking of selling my 2006 WK

I'm fairly certain you have the Light Khaki.

If you trade it in, I may be interested in some of your exterior parts since I wouldn't have to paint them. PM me if you make the move.

Good Luck.

I go back and fourth on this subject every month or so.. Keep my already modded to my liking vehicle vs. something new with less chances of the equipment deteriorating.

It's not about wanting more, it's mainly about wanting to spend less time in the shop due to equipment failure on an aging vehicle.

Light Khaki indeed.. I will keep you posted if I end up going that route.. I almost forgot I also have the mopar body kit that I may be interested in selling, but am not sure if I can remove the side body panels without damaging the clips. I know the front valence will come off with no problems.

Maybe we can work out a trade for your stock side panels.

How much equipment failure have you had to deal with to prompt you to want to switch?

Knock on wood. Nothing major to date, but from past experiences this is the time when things start to go.. I mainly just want something newer (used) with low miles, and a warranty.

Proper service means everything. No problems for 5 y and most probably there will be no problem in the future.

Look who popped out of nowhere?

Wassup Chris?!

Hey man the Jeep is paid off and still running good and looking good, why would you want to jump into something with payments?

Just sayin
