The cost of the car is more expansive than ours and I feel “old design”…
Myself with the Defender and my friends with LR3 and Sport are very happy with the LR. In 13 Years, only once i could not get home, the water pump was defect. I'm happy if my GC does the same.

+1 with friends that own them here in the states (mid atlantic & north east) - just wait until the warranty runs out or the $100 trips for not under warranty work begins every time you bring it in....

For the website called "4x4 review" this is such a non-article. He says he "engaged 4-wheel drive" - this doesn't even make sense for WK2.

Do you think he was talking about "low range"?

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee WK2 Reviews

Not everyone thinks the Exploder is better! Automobile mag had a comparo that seemed like it was written by an actual car person instead of some intern quoting the marketing literature - FWIW they liked the Jeep better... See the comments about lower real world mileage, less ability to pass and generally cheaper and boring interiors on the Ford.

* 10k is a lot of money..most writers i know can't throw around 10k...
* i test drove the audi q7, lr4, range supersport, bmw, ml...all of them.
The only car that made me even consider upgrading was the range
rover supersport...that thing is a gem, but also $100k. The others
offer 'marginal' (by my definition, marginal can also mean subjective)
upgrades at substantial premiums. Congrats to these brands for
earning the right to charge more, but from my hands on review the
gc overland is a statement vehicle.
* i'm starting to get tired of these writers trying to make a niche perhaps
among their peers by thinking they are writing something 'different' or
perhaps in their (writer) mind, finding an angle. People are too smart
these days, and trust their own instincts more than some writer.

Just my opinion...and it's great that we can choose what is a great car by voting with our wallets...jeep's latest numbers don't lie.
i like the way you talk.
