Thumbs up Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

Just thought I'd share a little positivity as there seems to be plenty of negative comments on this forum.

Sorry to all those experiencing problems but...

Our 2014 V8 overland is by far the "best" all around ride we've ever owned. We've had BMW (335's and X5), Tahoe's and several Dodge Ram diesels. We were holding out for the diesel but got tired of waiting.

This thing is comfortable, capable, economical and turns heads everywhere. The transmission is amazing, smooth seamless and fast. Plenty of power from the Hemi, and if you drive like my wife gets 22mpg. Air ride is so plush, never harsh and in OR2 super smooth over nasty ruts, rocks, etc. Pulled a couple ATV's around 80mph for 400 miles, hardly noticed the trailer and got around 15mpg. I would by another in a heartbeat. Job well done, happy as I've ever been at 5000 miles on a new ride, just wish my wife would let me drive it more.

Thanks to those involved, keep up the good work.

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

Well, without any nit picky gripes you may not get a lot of responses.

It is nice to hear about people who are just out enjoying their Jeep.

There may come a time when you will be happy that your wife wants to drive.
That's right about the time she will start handing you the keys.


Have a nice weekend.

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

Its nice to know that those who have the V8 version are happy more so than those who have the V6 version. I tried to get a V8 version but there was none available in a 180 mile radius. You were spared the misery.

As they say in that vegetable juice commercial;

"I could of had a V8"

You just order and be patient until it comes in.

Agree the forum has been kind of negative lately but unfortately is the nature of car forums sometimes, OCD folks wanting to vent, trolls and flame wars etc. Feel bad for those with a true lemon but every manufacturer makes a few duds that usually that gets taken care of and made right.
