Who would throw a vehicle around so violently to avoid an animal strike and not even use any brakes???
Anyway, do you want a 4x4 or a moose dodger? Let's see how a raised Hilux with knobbly tyres goes dodging mooses.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

My fourth Jeep, 2011 Limited V8, I've had for 16 months with about 24,000 miles, not a problem till yesterday, the AUX selection on my RER with IPOD connected froze up, so off to the Jeep Doc first of next week. But, I've loved all four of my Jeeps

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

My 5th Jeep and by far the best one yet! I've owned my Laredo X now for 10 months and have not had any issues. Having owned other SUV brands including Lexus this vehicle drives and handles better than any of the others.

My first jeep ever 2013 with 300 on the clock. I have no complaints with it. I've owned two nissans and it was time for a change. Fuel economy is what got me to switch. Everyone here is really helpful and I'm proud to be a jeep owner and joining the family.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Loving mine! Only 2k miles on the 5.7 Altitude so lets hope it stays that way! Better throttle response would be my only upgrade.

That has been an issue with the pentastar. About .5% of them have a problem with it and they don't really know why but they are fixing them when found to be problematic. I think it starts out with some engine knocking. What symptoms were you having?

Love my WK2. Just over 6k miles. Great ride and solid quality so far. This is the third Jeep I have owned and by far the best.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

My 2012 WK2 was new in April. I now have 8000 miles on it, and I'm enjoying every mile I add to that odometer!

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Around 6k on my Altitude, first Jeep ever (came from Audi) bought in July. Love it.

Flew back to MI for Xmas (was home for 12 days) and drove a few different vehicles while there, within 5 minutes of returning and driving my Jeep - I was smiling at how smooth it rides compared to everything I drove at home. Plus, for a vehicle of this size, it handles pretty damn well in my opinion.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

over 1k miles and have to admit that it's pretty freakin nice for an SUV. I had no idea Jeep was holding out lol. Though, I still like driving my Accord coupe. I feel like I'm stepping into a ferrari after driving the jeep lol.
