Update on my new WK2

I have my GC Ltd for 2 weeks now. I must say, I do love this vehicle. I traded in an '05 Nissan Murano SL AWD with 50K miles on it. This car easily could have lasted me many more years, but my job now has me venturing into the mountains this winter and I thought the Jeep was a good idea. (The dealer only gave me $11,500 for the Murano, what a ripoff- they wouldn't negotiate any higher, and I'm sure they'll get at least $5000 more for it when they sell it!)

I went with the USAA deal on the Jeep, and got the '12 GC Ltd 5.7 with Lux II and 730 for $38500.

I bought the "lifetime bumper-to-bumper" warranty for an additional $2400. Probably a another ripoff- in that if I ever need servicing/repairs, we'll see what this warranty actually covers. It was more of an impulse purchase....

Pics coming soon.

What I love:
- Roomy and well-appointed.
-logical layout and controls
-5.7 L power!!! Glad I went with the Hemi!
-keyless features
-auto High Beams! This is a great feature!

What I don't:
-getting creamed on fuel economy (this was expected.)
-seats a bit firm for my taste (I'm extremely skinny with no padding on my butt.)
