Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Forums like this are mainly to rant, fix and just ask questions. Go to the Nikon, Mercedes or even Samsung product forums and you'll see the same thing. By and large this forum is fairly positive compared to many others.

I'm about to take delivery on a 2012 Overland, Black forest green, adaptive cruise, Hemi and I'm sure I'll post with some happy...and perhaps not so happy comments. That's what the forum is for!

Robert

Looking forward to seeing how it does in a real New England winter...although if our experiences in Snowtober are any indication I think we will be held back a bit by the OEM all-seasons.
Yeah the all seasons arent really snow tires. A pair of snow tires is always better for the snow. The all seasons are just made to try and balance some of both worlds.

Depending on what the NY snow outlook is here for the winter I will probably get a set of blizzaks or something maybe even on a seperate set of rims.

Every time i come in this forum, there is another thread involving some issue.
What i want to know is how many people on this forum with WK2's are happy with there rig.

Is there anybody on here that likes there Jeep? Please tell me i am not the only one that likes there jeep.

Who has had there jeep since ownership that has had NO problems what so ever, those are the people i want to here from!! Front and Center!!

Remember, there's many who join just to gripe. That being said we had a couple of problems with our Limited. Both times the dealer had it back to us in less then 24 hours. So we are very happy with our Jeep. Well everything except the colors. We have the Blackberry, and I should have realized that dark colors and my wife don't mix. Next time it will be a lighter color.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Add me to the positive experience club. 2011 Laredo that I have had for 18 months and 8,000 miles. I like the vehicle and it meets my expectations. Initial impression is great, I would buy again.

One issue with a loose trim piece on the back door. Dealer fixed no problem. It was a really annoying squeak when driving on rough roads. Luckily it did the same noise when I was washing the car and rubbed the piece, otherwise how would anyone find it (that was why I didn't take it in for 3 months as it was not repeatable).

The BMW I had needed towed in the first 3 months of ownership (bad relay on AC compressor that drained battery til car would not start). The Pontiac ate alternators and batteries (2 alternators under warranty, radio repair and 3 batteries after warranty expired).

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Well, I am just short of 2 weeks and about 1,800 miles. I still like mine very much. The only gripe I have is that the seat is a bit firm for my liking, but I will fix that with a cushion. I am averaging 22.45 MPG (unless you believe the in-dash computer, then I am getting 24.9). I will withhold judgement on the tires until the snow flies, but they are replaceable anyway. I may get a set of winter/off-road rims and tires and save the Altitude rims for summer/show.

If mine were stolen, I would look in the same direction for a replacement.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

18 months, 22,500 miles. No issues so far. Even though they are as common as ants around here, it still attracts people at the grocery store lot. Now thinking about trading in for MY14 WK2.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

3k miles and no problems, still about a year away from getting the way I want it but for me cars are transportation, hobbies, learning experiences, and test devices - see no reason anything I have shouldn't be all of the above. Having an alloy DOHC 6 is just part of the fun.

Only gripe is the difficulty in getting documentation/service information but am genning my own.

Do like it better now than when I bought it.

This sounds stupid, but I have had heaps of electrical issues with mine 19000kms. But I still love it, just want it replaced with one that isn't a lemon.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

My favorite vehicle that I've ever owned, and I've been driving since the 70's.

Re: Is Anybody on here happy with there WK2?

Best vehicle I've ever owned.

I've used this expression in the past on JG, but its been I while, so I'll say it again: Magic. Carpet. Ride.
