Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I bought this Jeep for my wife and her job. Then she realized she didnt need a 4wd vehicle and I inherited the thing. I came from a long line of high hp imports.....3000GT's and Stealths to be exact. I hated it at first and started making changes right away. The loks were horrible and engine pretty lame for a V8. But I never really got into the modding until late 2007 when my 10 yr old son passed away after a 4 wheeler accident. From then on it became a labor of love and THERAPY. It kept me busy and my mind off of the terrible tragedy I had suffered. This Jeep kept me sane and we had a lot of long nights together in my garage. So now...I love this plasticky, gas hog, unreliable(even though mine has never had one legit warranty issue) piece of junk. I plan to always keep this Jeep...even though I may move on to other Jeeps...it will always be right here with me.

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

Don't own a WK but I am on my 2nd Jeep as most already know. I have found that Jeep isn't reliable like other brands but I still love it. Don't know why I love it but I love it. Weeks after I sold my Grand Cherokee, I started to really miss it. Now I am 4 days away from owning my Liberty for 2 whole months, thus not having my Lincoln and I don't even miss my Lincoln one bit.

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

Love it!
Love the torque!
Love the fuel economy!
We bought this after looking at so many other SUV in this class. There just nothing like a Jeep! The king of SUV's.

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I traded my SRT8 Charger in for the turbo CRD. At the time, I wondered if I made the right decision. Sometimes I still miss it, but overall........., I love my Jeep. ... Love the torque, love the fuel economy..... ( heard that somewhere?)

lol, you CRD boys

I wonder if you'd like it out of warranty when the swirl pot shits itself or worse? My Lord they're expensive to repair.

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I know there isn't enough choices, but I wanted to keep it simple.
We all have issues at sometime, and absolutely NO vehicle is perfect in every way, I wanted to know, overall, do you love it or hate it?

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

Love mine! We have had it for almost 5 1/2 years (since new) and have not had any major issues with it. I have followed the recommended maintenance and had to replace a couple of other items that you would expect with age (battery, two tire pressure sensors, and rear hatch shocks).

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I love my 3.7 WK for the space and family trips, but hate my 3.7 WK for not being a 5.7 HEMI for my own trips.
