Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Really interesting, reading all the posts. Seems from my (totally un-scientific) review, that the vast majority are happy with their Jeeps. Based on the premise that "Perfection Doesn't Exist", I too would have to agree that going on two years, our 2011 Overland has been a pleasure!!

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

2013 WK2 G.C. Overland Summit 4x4 5.7 hemi with only about 300 mi on the clock so far. Been checking out all the features/buttons, and not one thing is amiss as far as I can tell. The only thing that's kind of strange is how the tranny shifts - seems a bit erratic at times, but not sure if thats normal or not ... ? But all-in-all, I love this Jeep! Glad to see that alot of others apparently feel the same ...

Rob

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Yes. I'm happy (2011 JGC Overland) and so is the missus (2012 JGC Overland)

For the record, my next vehicle *will* be another Jeep Grand Cherokee.

One thing you have to remember about forums such as these, people come on here with problems looking for solutions. Some come here to troll. Most who are happy never have the need to find a site such as this. That is, except for those of us who love to share our experiences with the JGC and want to talk with other JGC owners who go a little further than the local mall.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

I continue to be impressed. I rode in my friends MDX this evening and noticed the discomforting amount of NVH. Although smooth road driving was ok...any amount of road harshness created noises, creaks and squeaks, whereas these same roads feel smooth and uneventful in my JGC. No unnecessary noises and harshness and overall insulated from road noise. Exceptional balance between on and off road capabilities.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

G'day All, I have had my WK2 Overland now for seven months and have run up nearly 10K, more than half towing our 1800kg van. Great car, best move i made in buying the JGC

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

My dad has had both the 2011 and 2012 Grand Cherokees and he has loved them. The 2011 was a regular Laredo with none of the features besides 4wd. The 2012 was a Laredo X with more luxury features. Both had the 3.6L V6 which provided more than enough power. Even my dad, who usually always gets a V8 in his suvs was satisfied with the V6. He is currently driving a 2013 Dodge Durango Crew but he says his next car is a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Hemi. The only reason he chose the Durango over the Grand Cherokee for 2013 was that he would be getting the same car for 2013 and he also was waiting for the 2014 Grand Cherokee to come out. He gets a brand new car every year for free because of his job at Chrysler. Not even joking, I think my dad has had around 20 Grand Cherokees haha.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

I absolutely hated my wife's '11 Limited V6. We bought it when they frist came out in 9/10, so it was the subject of seemingly every TSB in the book; from "Key Not Detected" to transmission reflashes. It seemed like it spent more time at the dealership than in our driveway. She eventually started driving my car (with some strong encouragement from me ), and I took her '11 and traded it in on a '12 with the Hemi and Lux Pkg. That was almost a year ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision. The only thing I don't like is the archaic RHR radio, but I'll take it over the RER we had before. The truck has been trouble-free thus far and I absolutely love it.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

I've had my WK2 V6 with 18" stock and off-road package 1, tow package and it's been the best rig for what I do. Fly fishing remote Trinity River spots, Tule River spots deep in the Sequoia Nat'l Forest, Towing a 18' boat 500 miles high sierras, blizzard driving to Lake Tahoe. The rig is black and I don't really like the scratches, but that comes with the territory.
