Re: Man am I glad I ordered the Hemi!

why are some Hemi powered Jeep owners being condescending towards pentastar owners. They are both great engines, there's no argument. Some people like the Hemi some like the V6. I could have afforded either but went with the V6 because i wanted better gas mileage (and to go farther on a tank). But the hemi is a great engine, just not what I decided to go with.

Don't bash the V6 just because others didn't choose it or because it was less expensive. The hemi is a 1200 dollar option, that's nothing when purchasing a 40+k vehicle.

Just because you choose to buy a V6 doesnt mean you cant afford a V8. It's a pretty ridiculous comment actually.

I think for those of us who didn't opt for it, it wasn't that we couldn't afford it, it wasn't that the extra fuel consumption was a deal breaker.

It was that we didn't notice a significant difference between the two. Given that, why bother spending the money?

Just busting on ya

I have this conversation every time I walk on a car lot and a sales puke tries to convince me an SUV isn't what I want, it's a 1/2 ton pickup. It just hit a nerve.
I meant that I can see someone getting the HEMI if they towed a lot or tow heavy loads. But I also think that if someone IS towing a lot WITH a heavy load then an SUV wouldn't be wise. I can understand if you tow heavy loads a few times out the year with a SUV while using the 5.7.

I understand what you mean about car sales men. If you ask some up here if you need a 4wd or a 2wd some would say 2wd only because it snows 3-4 months out the year

I'm guessing you define yourself by your car and not by yourself as a person.

That's true but if the hemi were a no cost option and gas mileage was the same I bet a lot more people would get the hemi.

BTW - I dont think anyone has talked about the higer insurance cost of the hemi.

Huh? My insurance only cares about the model and if it is 4 wheel drive.

I just did a quote for replacing my limited with a 2011 SRT8 and it is a whopping $14.40 more a year.
