Impressions after first test drive in JGC Overland.

Well it was fantastic. My wife and I are extremely impressed with the ergonomics of the WK2. Our Acadia has the most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in, the Overland was an absloute joy to stay seated in for an extended test drive. The visability is way better around the pillars and through all mirrors. The ride was as smooth as I would have expected, and road noise was almost non-exsistant. We were impressed. It's not common for a vehicle to have great exterior and interior looks along with a well assembled, ergonomic, and thought out interior layout. I think Jeep hit a homerun for the most part and designed a nice JGC.

Now all we have to do is find a dealer that is willing to play ball on the purchase price. We are talking to three dealers now.... We'll see who gives us the better deal.

Jason

Re: Impressions after first test drive in JGC Overland.

To be honest... we were pretty confident anyway, but the test drive definately sealed the deal. Thanks though.

Yea, I think the Black Metallic looks sick, but my wife want's Charcole Grey. We figured either one would be great. So ultimately it depends on who gives us a better deal.

Re: Impressions after first test drive in JGC Overland.

Good choice. That is what I am doing. I am dumping my Acadia for the Overland now. And btw I have the Black Crystal, really liked it the first time I checked it out. They just updated my delivery to 12/08. I am excited!

Re: Impressions after first test drive in JGC Overland.

BTW, your worst deal should be invoice. Your best deal should be around invoice - 1% + $75.

Awesome... You should be driving it soon then.

I really tried to like the Acadia but my body is screaming at me after 30 minutes of drive time. And, the overly numb steering feel makes it seem like you are driving in a video game. Hell I am getting more feedback from Gran Tor. 5 on my PS3 than from that POS.

Re: Impressions after first test drive in JGC Overland.

Just tell the dealer that if they'll give you $500 below invoice, they have a deal.

Take charge, make it clear they'll have a deal at YOUR number, and watch them jump on it.
