Re: Trade In???

Im facing the same difficult decision. My 2011 overland has a repair sheet an arms length long. Our bank payments are up in July and as much as Id rather not have any payments again for a few years I just feel like I have to unload this thing. Thank goodness for the service crew at our local dealership, they've been great. We are considering another GC purchase just because its the perfect size for my wife and it is fantastic in our northern Michigan winters, not to mention for the amount of options and standard features the price is right.


With that being said I will be trading it in no matter what our next vehicle is just because I couldn't sell it to someone in clear conscience knowing all of the issues I have had.

nothing needs to be fixed currently. Ive always took care of whatever needed to be taken care of. its just that I have had numerous things repaired over the years. like no heater hose clamp installed so the hose came off to replacing the battery twice, review mirror fell off, water pump, some kind of sensor that didn't allow the eco to work, 2 rusting wheels replaced, drivers side head rest came apart, vibration in the tranny under acceleration. some other issues to difficult to explain. I still think I just have a jinxed unit, I believe the jeep product is a good one. My luck just sucks

Re: Trade In???

Well, I certainly would use a different dealer if I were you. Hard telling how much of that was dealer caused.

Or better yet, work on your own vehicle and get off the warranty work gravy train. Dealers be scammin.

I bet the rusted wheels were due to the mechanic peeing on your wheels... lol

Re: Trade In???

I've had an extended warranty that's up in July. I am replacing the HVAC blower again but Jeep has guaranteed the left head to 100K for all V6 owners. Had a wheel sensor go out but other than the recalls, which are happening with so many brands, I love my WK2. Yes I'm worried about being without a safety net. Wish I had the 14 tranny but I like the front of the '11-'13 so much better. I hate my RER touchscreen stereo system but replacing isn't a big deal. I just hate MP3 and no iPhone music integration. Still no reasons for me to abandon ship. Do the maintenance work yourself and get to know your vehicle. Much problems are in ways people drive. Quick starts and stops are hard on any car. My wife just crushed vehicles. Considering the WK2 is almost 4000 pounds and moves just fine with the Pentastar great interior, works fine in the snow belt I'm happy. I don't mind the Cherokee as much as I did at first but it certainly doesn't feel tank-like that the WK2 does. More like a Subaru on some roofs. Considering the prices asked for Subarus these days staying with the ride I have is the only option.

Opinions vary. Have 20,000 miles on my 2014 eco-diesel JGC - with zero problems to date.
