Re: Well I sold my Jeep

Congrats. Last week I traded my 2014 JCG Limited with 10,300 miles for a 2014 Overland and I couldn't be happier. The Limited was my first introduction to Jeep and now I have owned two in less than a year and a half. I think I'm hooked now.

again congrats!!!
Thanks!
Its a '14, May 2014 build, got a good price on it as well as on my turn in.

On my Limited V6 4x4 i didn't feel like it was wanting for power, anytime I really needed it to scoot I'd just drop it into Sport mode and away we'd go. I'm expecting the same for the Summit

Yup I know that some folks have had issues early on, and i fell badly for them, luckily I was one of the owners on the other side of the fence...I had absolutely no issues. I'm hoping that this May 14 build is glitch free.

Like any new car only time & miles will tell.

Re: Well I sold my Jeep

I am currently contemplating doing this with my Laredo. How rough was the loss on the trade in? obviously your payments reset, but how much did they increase?

Yea, carmax offered me $28000. That was a bummer.
