Is it me or most of the problems with the Overlands?

Not many Limiteds seeing these problems?

Whats up with that? QC control in the overland department?

I doubt they have actual departments, its just an assembly line and they add whatever is needed to each one

Re: Is it me or most of the problems with the Overlands?

For me, since I have a limited with issues, I see a lot of limiteds with these issues. Maybe it is just our perspective, or bias in what we are looking for.

Re: Is it me or most of the problems with the Overlands?

I don't know what the numbers are now, but there was a poll that showed more Overlands were sold to members.

Arrow Re: Is it me or most of the problems with the Overlands?

I have a Limited with problems.

Haven't done a complete tally, but it seems the Limited problems that are posted all have "Luxury II Package". Wondering if the additional electronics have anything to do with it??

Re: Is it me or most of the problems with the Overlands?

I have an Overland with minor issues...annoying intermittent buzzes and rattle under driver's dash. However, everyting is working at 10,000 miles. I guess I should count my blessings...but for $46,000 why can't they provide teh same level of QC as Lexus????? We're paying the same price....Can't they hirte some QC engineers form Lexus to ensure cars are blemish free?

If your buzz is what others have had, there's a wiring harness or something in the steering column that is the problem and its supposed to be an easy fix for a trchnician
