How Reliable has your WK2 been? Post up!

Post up whether you have a hemi or the pentastar!

1) How long have you had it?
2) How many miles are on it?
3) What kind of issues have you had if any?


Thanks

9 months, 9k miles, deep snow, deep subzero, high altitude, trail, spirited driving in alpine hairpins, 5K boat tows.

Pure joy, zero issues excepting mod fever.

My 5.7 Overland is 4 months old and has 2400 miles. The only issue I have had is the 730N RHR looses my Home Address and all entries in the Address Book. Dealer says there is no update for this problem.

Re: How Reliable has your WK2 been? Post up!

I have had my Overland for almost 11 months. It has 9,000 miles on it. The first week I owned it the "WINS" module went out, and it had to be towed to the dealership for repair. They replaced the "Wins" module with a new one, and I have had no problems since.

Limited delivered last week of Feb. - 7500 miles now. Only issue was a popped stitch in the center console armrest. Replaced promptly. No other issues. White Gold is a real conversation starter.

Re: How Reliable has your WK2 been? Post up!

Had it for 2 months, 5K miles, issues-loses home address in gps; no message in evic when I take it out of 4 wheel drive to tow; when getting out of the vehicle, the easy out setting for the steering wheel and seat does not work anymore; there is rust around the wheel(s); not sure re-circ is working. I still am smelling odors when I do not think I should be. But, I do love this vehicle. Will be taking it in for these items end of the month.
