Re: anyone else been trouble-free

2200 miles and no problems here. Mileage is suffering from my lead foot, but hard to complain about that.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

6000 miles here. The only issue I've had is the trim panel on the passenger seat (where the controls are)- the dealer is ordering in a new one.

Absolutely ZERO driveability or mechanical issues. I'm loving my WK2.

Same here. I'm averaging about 13.5 mpg. Though at least I am enjoying it.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

No major issues on my Sept 9 built Overland. Though, I do notice a harshness with the MDS at low speeds (under 50) - I'm attributing it to the "Winter Blend" of gas that we get in Detroit. It was running great until we switched in November. Everything else is great and it has been cold here - down to the single digits. Starts up and runs just fine. Liftgate has been OK too!

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

3100 miles... no major issues. I did have to take it into the dealership for a nasty sunroof rattle. Dealer needed to insulate the fixed glass portion of the CommandView sunroof. No more rattles.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

No real probs...just a loose seat back. Waiting for a part to come in to fix it.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

1500 miles. I was just commenting to a co-worker while staring at it parked across the street from my office today, I am absolutely thrilled about my purchase. Zero problems/issues....puts a smile on face everytime I hit auto start and she wakes up...

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

1500 miles. No issues whatsoever. My area has been under freezing temperature for 2 weeks. No problem so far with the power lift gate. I do keep the car in garage during the night. This may make a difference.

This liftgate is designed for places that don't drop below freezing!

Very disappointed!
I understand your frustration, but there are already several threads on your liftgate issue, and this is meant to be a tally of trouble free WK2's.

Don't take this the wrong way, but this thread could easily become a place for people to vent about isolated problems, when there are more appropriate places about problems.

4000 miles on mine and running strong and perfect. No problems whatsoever that are major. Just the iphone 4 issue with the 730 RER.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

2000 miles now and still smooth cruising. Mileage on highway near 20 mpg but LFS (lead foot spouse) gets only 18 mpg. Go figure!!
