1 week 700 miles

well i had my jeep for a week.
milage 700+, 2 fill ups driving around high teens, towing i got 13.5
so last 100 miles i decided that i want to use my flatbed trailer and i would say trailer and payload was ~ 6k, towed in comfort, tranny temp never got higher than 180s. I was VERY nice to the jeep since it is kinda new and i didn't have the trailer brake controller installed yet.
so in 700 miles my jeep 1 time didn't want to open the door or remote start ( i knew it was the fob, pop the cover bent contacts just tiny bit in reassembled, never gave me any more trouble, this was first day).
Don't really have major issues, but rather WTH? for instance DTE would read out LOW fuel and would not tell me the actual DTE, the idiot light would come on and still no DTE...annoying, but i don't typically run down less than 1/4 tank, the vynil on the center console seemed made from rubbery crap, not a show stopper, but i tend to rest my arm, and i defiantly feel the difference compared to other cars.
Jeep seemes to be solid, I am still happy with the purchase.
here are some pictures.

Re: 1 week 700 miles

Sounds like you are enjoying the ride. I too have been dragging my trailer around and love the fact that it pulls without issues.

I see the dog is guarding what looks like the beer.... good doggie...

Re: 1 week 700 miles

the best description of towing experience:
Pulls like my old 1t chevy, simple and agile as my YJ, comfortable to ride as maxima...
as far as the dog, i didnít let her on the seats, and she had to ride in the trunk, so she was given me "the look".... this one is defiantly a female, and yes she acts like a freaking human too!

picture of "the look"... how could you?!
