First day, first impressions

Just brought home my 2012 Overland 5.7 black/black. 70 miles on the odo. First stop after dealer was to have 3M clear bra applied, next stop was to have select undercoating/rustproofing applied (paid $120 vs $700 dealer quote, oops, stealer quote )

This is my first American made (big 3) vehicle ever. Previously a couple of Japanese (Mazda, Nissan), 2 BMW's and most recently a Lexus IS350.

1. Intuitive. Easy to use everything, almost zero learning curve so far. No problem figuring out how to sync my blackberry, use nav/stereo etc.

2. Fit an finish is as good as any high end car I've ever owned.

3. NVH. Actually quieter at 70 on the highway than my Lexus was!

So far, really enjoying my purchase.

Re: First day, first impressions

Same here. I got an '11 Overland Summit a week ago yesterday..had no idea I would purchase a vehicle that day but I did. Most luxurious ride I've ever had, or ever thought I'd have. Never thought I'd be able to afford it, got the HEMI, gas at $4 here on Long Island, but I'm just being careful and using the Adaptive cruise control. Smooth, quiet, solid as a rock, amazing to drive. Gotta say I love her.

Re: First day, first impressions

Where did you get your 3m and undercoating from? Was thinking same for mine but I always seem to pay more than I'm suppose to lol.

Re: First day, first impressions

Congrats on the new Jeep. I have some small stuff that needs a bit of attention, but overall, no real complaints. I love this Jeep. More now than before.
