Re: Limited vs Overland ... Got the Limited

Just picked my Cherry Red Limited. Has all I want. Was spooked as well with the Quadra Lift problems.

Go with the overland! I test drove them all and the v8 overland summit is the only way to go! I feel like I should be driving a $100k vehicle it just dont compare! Don't get buyers remorse, I mean if you get the fully loaded every option and you don't like then the JGC isn't for you, but if you don't get it And decide that you should have gotten more options then ya kinda screwed yourself! I wanted to wait for the CRD but I just couldn't so once it's released I will be trading in for another overland summit with the CRD!!!!

Re: Limited vs Overland

I originally bought my limited spec'd out like an Overland. I can say that it rides very smooth even here in DC. My cayenne turbo has the air suspension, however it is used completely differently than Jeep does. I am happy that I didn't go with the QL because I wouldn't use it since I don't offroad often enough and I don't tow. I have never been in a situation where I thought the ride was harsh or that I was wishing I was in the Cayenne. But since I am no longer traveling for work, I have decided to sell mine. Either one you will be happy with, it just comes down to needs over wants and the price you are willing to pay. I feel that you might get a better deal on a limited spec'd out since its not the top of the line model (just dont attempt to trade it in!!)

Re: Limited vs Overland

All i can say people don't be afraid of the QL. I wasn't ,You will never know when you will need the QL ( flooded roads, snow drifts, muddy roads, old lady transport. Doing repairs, & mods on the GC that require a few more inches "" and last Overland Resale.

You did not just compare a BMW's suspension to a Jeep and Kia I love the Jeep's air ride, however, I prefer the BMW's tight and precise handling (it's why we buy them). That being said, I've owned multiple X5's, and the Jeep takes the gold in the SAV/SUV category.

I vote overland! I love the grand with the air suspension and it rides like a dream, no issues at all so far and have been offroading as well as using the settings while driving. As others have stated I got the extended coverage just in case. If anything ill say get the overland I think the trim is a really great overall look and feel to it.

Re: Limited vs Overland

I had this same debate before ordering: I was dead-set on ordering a limited with Luxury II Package. Right before ordering, I test drove both a Limited v6 4X4 and a Overland v6 4X4. The Overland felt more luxurious, even though I know the Limited can get a similar package added. And first I didnt like the wood steering wheel, but after a few minutes, I didnt notice it. The QL made the ride so nice and smooth, and I was sold.

As far as reliability on the QL, I'm planning on getting the Lifetime warranty. 1800 - 2000 dollars will save you money in the long run if their are issues. I know people do not want to be inconvenience by repairs, but you also get a rental car as part of the plan.

While I'd recommend the Overland, I don't think you can go wrong either way.

Aiyer,

I see that you also have a Cayenne S. I'm curious as to a comparison between the two. I was on the fence when shopping between a 2008 Cayenne S or JGC., I went with the Jeep because its newer and repairs/maintenance are more cost effective. But, I guess when you buy a Porsche, its something to factor in.

I know they are different animals, but wanted to get your thoughts.

Stain,

They both are completely different. I am a huge fan of both Porsches and Jeeps. That said, I love the Jeep for all the luxury features in it. But, when I sit in the Cayenne, I feel that the car is part of me. The seats in the Cayenne kinda "hold" you. The way it handles, drives, precision steering, brakes, power (of course has to be different since it is a v8 vs v6), the feel, etc... it is all completely different from the Jeep. I also love the way the Cayenne drives in twisty roads we have here in Colorado. I have not taken the Cayenne hard-core off-road, but from all the videos I have seen, Porsche did make it real off-road worthy and did not compromise in that area (Google "Trans Siberian Rally"). I have also driven the BMW X5, Audi Q7 and Tuareg and found that it does not connect well with the driver (actually the X5 felt more like the Jeep...) as well as the Porsche does. Maybe I am biased, so please take it with a grain of salt. The Cayenne is my wife's daily driver and when she was in the market for a SUV (she had a Mini Cooper S Manual before the Cayenne), she test drove the X5 and Q7 and was not thrilled about it. The same day she test drove the Cayenne S and wanted the Cayenne immediately. It was that different!!

Anyways, the Jeep is very luxurious and I love it. It is comfortable on-road and I know it will kick @ss off-road. My good old 98 ZJ did GREAT off-road. I only wish they would have put better suspension in the new Jeep, but I guess I will have to upgrade to the SRT8 for the driving experience.

Just go to the Porsche dealership and test drive the new Cayenne... you will love it!

Cheers,
-Aiyer
