Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

Just tout things in perspective:
I own a 2012 overland and love every second of driving it.
I have 2010 Maserati gran turismo and a Mercedes S500, GL450. The jeep is by far the cheapest car to buy and own, but doesn't feel it. The ride is great, it is fun on and off road, and the amenities are better then the GL and Maserati.
Want remote start, can't get it on the Benz, want keyless go, not on a Maserati.
So whenever you have a bad day with your jeep, remember there are people out there wh paid 3 or 4 times for their cars, and end up haveing more bad days than you : -)
Now when that Waggy comes out, ill have one of those as well.....

I don't want to flame this up but it's plain and simple. This forum represents .000001% of the JGC owners out there. As someone who has business dealings with a chrysler at the Fiat level I can tell you that this is by far one of the best vehicle releases they have ever had. Every manufacturer has lemons. There are a lot of options you can execute if you think you have one. It starts by going to other dealerships and ends with layers involved. Each step has there positives and negatives and its part of the new car world. I am a collector and have a large stable of vehicles starting with the Jeep and ending with vehicles I won at BarrettJackson when I outbid Jay Leno (great guy). I am not usually active on this stuff as I have a lot going on but don't mind helping out when I can. I usually pass the information to a more active member so he can take the time to help everyone else on the forum. I can understand your frustration but please, don't think for a minute it cannot happen with any new vehicle. I bought a 2007 Bentley Arnage T brand new and had issues like you cannot imagine and we are talking about a car that cost me 200k+. I am not trying to brag but only explain that these things happen and there is always a resolution.

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

MAX Thats great that you are happy with your 2012 Model . Back then they appeared to have gotten it right. I'm a Car guy and have owned 12 in the last 8 years . Including New BMW M5's and Mercedes E63 AMG . Yes the Jeep is Cheap to own but you must admit its not very much fun to deal with a Car company that will not resolve Warranty Issues on there Vehicles. Yes , In the end I will be driving something different very soon. I won't make the same mistake twice .I realize the difference between a Good company and a Bad Company is when there is a problem how fast they fix it . Best of Luck for you Jeep Fans out there.

You would think with a "thank you couldn't be happier" title that some people would respect this is a cheer thread. Some people just need to spread their misery around though.

When a baby cries, does it respect the rest of the people in the room? I think the moderators need a supply of teething rings that they can distribute judiciously.

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

The whiners have a terrible time staying on the whining threads because misery loves company. I have to admit though, that I've had to put hardly anyone on ignore on this forum. My ignore lists on some other forums are pretty long. Although I'm probably mellowing in my old age.

I think the mods are good and the general group is pretty good, I rarely participate to this level but I have found a great deal of mutual respect here and genuine appreciation. I believe that attracts the good folks to stick around and keep the conversation going.

Everybody has bad days and I respect that, so everyone gets their rant. Pooping on the happy kids Christmas present has no leeway with me though.

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

My hemi overland is the sexiest, smoothest/refined, powerfull, most comfortable suv I have ever been in. Period. The wife and I looked at new X5, ML and GL, and all other brands from $30k to $100k plus, and nothing can touch the new jeep in features and fit and finish... IMO.

Thanks Jeep, I'd say you smashed this one clean out of the park.
