Re: My test drive at Westbury Jeep in Long Island

I purchased a 2005 JGC and I had a great purchase experience back then. The service department is great and they do hold their employees to a high customer service standard. That being said I did fo their and now purchase my 2011 overland. I am currently waiting for delivery as is everyone else here. They are not pushy at all which is extremely helpful when purchasing a car and they are very fair in the price negotiating. I would recommend them anytime, hopefully get my car in soon. Have a 2005 JGC laredo X package if anyone want to buy it from me only has 47K miles.

However, it's interesting that we think a lot alike on most other things. E.g. Both my wife and I would love to have the choice of cloth seats as an option on all models. The first thing we've done is turn off the voices on our Nav systems. And, we picked Charcoal Gray with a black interior as our colors of choice on our WK2 (Seems like it's been on order for an eternity).

Thanks for the objective review and nice read.
Do you agree with my opinion on V6 vs HEMI?

I took an '11 V6 for a ride. It's got lots of power (has a similar feel to my '03, '05, '00 & '04 5.2L GC V8's). Unfortunately, I'm a little biased since all my vehicles have, or have had, V8's. I especially like the torque numbers for the Hemi for driving the Jeep under load (towing, hill climbing, etc.) and accelerating to higher speeds.

I've felt a similar hesitation with my 6.1L Hemi, as you felt with the 5.7L. I think it has more to do with computer programming, than engine performance.

When compared to my Chev 5.7 LS1, I feel the Chrysler V8's aren't as sophisticated. The Chev has very little noise or vibration at idle, while my Chrysler V8's shuddle, vibrate and have a lot of valve noise. This isn't a particularly bad thing for an old hot rodder like me who likes to hear the power under the hood.

My personal preference is for the Hemi (that's what I ordered), but I don't think you can go wrong with the V6.
