Flares coming off the summits has been a problem since they came out in early 2013. There are several threads on this, the adhesive tape separates or disintegrates.

Yes, 4x4 Overland and Summit include factory tow, but the OP said he might consider a pre-owned SRT...and factory tow appears to be an option, not standard, at least for MY15.

Just adding my experience on 2 WK2's I've owned.

45k on my 2012 Overland. All I did was change the oil.

1100 miles on my 2015 HA. No issues.

Re: Considering '14-'15 JCG Overland/Summit - Reliability?

Have the following offers:

Overland 4WD HEMI w/ Tech Package: $47773 OTD (my sales tax is $300), MSRP is $52,880. Invoice is $50,505. 5.4% under invoice discount OTD

Summit 4WD HEMI w/ Rear Entertainment & Sienna interior, $51,448 OTD or $51,948 OTD if I use Chrysler financing (I lose $500 in incentives). Invoice is $55,531. 6.5% under invoice discount OTD if I use Chrysler Capital.

Kind of hard to not be persuaded to go with the Summit, which is only $1500 more than what my local dealer wants for just an Overland. With either of the two cars above, I have to travel which is fine...won't cost much.

Considering '14-'15 JCG Overland/Summit - Reliability?

I know it's subjective, but the Overland looks better and costs less. The Summit offers very little extras. I'd get the Overland.

Edit: also I would think you could negotiate the same percentage below invoice for the Overland as you did for the Summit.

Re: Considering '14-'15 JCG Overland/Summit - Reliability?

I think the Summit looks better and I would go with that. Especially since you are more luxury vehicle oriented, it would make sense to go from a QX56 to the Summit.

Either way, you can't go wrong.

Sorry to drift off topic but the $300 sales tax makes me want to move where you are, mine is almost 4k on the Summit, lucky you.

Some states extract other fees...sometimes annually...that more than make up for one-time sales tax.

Re: Considering '14-'15 JCG Overland/Summit - Reliability?

and some make you do both lol. The recurring property tax every year I hate worse than the sales tax, it is a hard $1600 check to write every year though it does slowly go down with the value of the vehicle each year.

Crap, makes you want to cheat the system...like getting a shack in another state and registering all vehicles there. I guess I am not too upset with my 4k sales tax anymore.

Re: Considering '14-'15 JCG Overland/Summit - Reliability?

I have owned 5 Jeeps over the years. If anyone thinks these can be a headache, you never owned a 1980's AMC CJ7/8. Owned a 2005 Liberty Crud. Engine and trans etc were flawless other than a couple EGR problems early on. Windows kept falling out but overall loved it. Traded it on a Hemi Ram which I had no issues with but was too large for new parking garage at work. Traded that on a 11 Wrangler, no issues and traded it in on my late 14 Diesel last January. 10+k miles and only 2 check engine lights when new and a bum heated mirror. No problems what-so-ever and love this friggin Jeep. Glad I bailed ona slightly used ML Bluetec. List was right at $46k and got it for about $39.4 so could not turn it down.

oh people definitely try to do that but if it is garaged for 51% or more of the time in the state then it must be registered in the state and the yearly tax must be paid regardless of who or where the true owner lives. Cops drive around and watch and keep track of violators believe it or not, they will ticket your car parked in your own driveway for it. and its not just a ticket you can pay it is a court summons and you must appear or probably face an arrest warrant if you don't. I know they watch and will ticket in your driveway first hand because it happened to me when I moved in from out of state and put off reregistering the car in state for a year. If you have everything switched over and registered in state by the time court date rolls around they will waive the case when you appear if you don't look out lol. yes its a counter productive tax that discourages people from buying new cars it needs to be changed, it actually used to be much more money but has been scaled back from what it used to be years ago.
