Thumbs up Re: Getting rid of the Hemi Laredo Grand

You (your wife) did exactly what my wife an I did... traded our GC's (both with 5.7 Hemi) for 2014 GC's with Pentastar V-6. When she (and then I) test drove hers back in June, I realized there would be less HP and torque, but it was barely an issue and definitely not a problem. The slightly improved fuel economy was not a major consideration, as I believe that buying a vehicle just for gas mileage reasons will result in the buyer taking a beating on other things. Just over a week ago, I traded my 2009 Overland for the new Summit.

Each was taken on a "maiden voyage" within a week of delivery - hers to VA and mine to NJ - no problems to report except for that annoying Blind Spot Mirror glitch on mine, which has a new module on the way. The ride and hadling have been great so far - a major improvement over the 2009's (which we really liked), to be certain.

Enjoy!

Glad your enjoying yours!! I hope we do the same. We really haven't had it out much yet as we're trying to get some time in on the topless Wrangler before this summer ends. Its flying by!!

Haha funny. However all my school loans and my car are in my name. All my parents did was give me money for a down payment when I had my Dodge Charger.
