Talking New Vehicle

Hi,

This is my first post here. I dropped my '07 Patriot Limited at the dealership on Thursday and picked up my new Grand Cherokee Laredo X (Brilliant Black - Black Leather Interior - 430 N Media Center) after a long, long wait.

I ordered it on August 21st.

I would like to get running boards but apparently MOPAR doesn't have them as an option yet

The vehicle will get a good run-in next week when I drive from Ottawa, ON to Tampa FL and hopefully I won't need the extended warranty.

Thumbs up Re: New Vehicle

Schedule an oil change when you are in Florida, and yes, let us know your thoughts about the Jeep when you return!

Re: New Vehicle

It's a new car so be sure and vary your speeds regularly. Don't just set the cruise and run all day. This will help to seat ring and pinions along with other components.

Good point, I will be leaving with about 500 K on the vehicle.

I think that it's about 2500 Km from Ottawa to Tampa. I wasn't planning a change until my return but it would be fun to drive into a Tampa dealership with a new Canadian Laredo X.

Re: New Vehicle

I ordered mine from Orleans Dodge Chrysler Jeep. I think mine was the fifth that they had sold when I placed my order.
