10,000 Miles

Just crossed 10,000 miles, zero issues

Before someone comments on the gas mileage, I pulled my boat back and forth to the lake Saturday and Sunday which seems to have a negative impact on mileage

'Glad you're enjoying your JGC!!

Towing always has a negative impact on fuel economy, even with a small, empty trailer...it still creates some level of drag which is extra work for the engine. As the load behind increases, so does the work and the resulting fuel use.

Is this where I say "Dahhhh!?"

My boat, which is a Ski Nautique, weighs around 3200lbs with trailer. On the turnpike, this usually drops my mileage to about 12.5 (70 mph). Around town is probably worse, but I don't tow very far. Interestingly, the 12.5 number is exactly the same number I got with my 2012 V6 Laredo, so 2 more cylinders and 3 more gears sort of equaled out on MPG. My non towing mileage is about 1mpg less than my V6 was, well worth it for me.

I have the V6 and I'm currently a little over 12K miles and I've had no problems so far.

Also congrats on hitting 10K miles with zero problems!

I have a V6 and I'm at 20K miles on a 2014 (Built in Aug 2013) and I'm quite pleased with it.

2 Transmission firmware updates and 1 HVAC firmware update. Nothing else has been done. I change my oil myself.

Not perfect, but I don't think I could do better for the $$$.

And I'd buy another in a heartbeat. And it would be another V6.

By the way I justified to my wife to buy a Kubota Tractor to tow our boat (4500lbs on a sandy boat ramp) in and out of the water which would allow us to buy a more efficient vehicle. Well the Tractor didn't work so well first few seasons and I ended up buying the Jeep. But then I finally figured out the technique of getting the boat out with the Tractor. Now my wife says we can buy something smaller/more efficient. I told her no way

Re: 10,000 Miles

Wow, so trouble-free V6s DO exist!

That gives me hope...
