Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

simple things like the back seat reclining...and the EVIC for sure. Oh, and the panoramic roof!

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

Quadra-Lift and heated front AND REAR seats were the 2 biggest selling points for me, and they lived up to their promises. Adaptive Cruise Control is awesome, and the rear cross path detection has saved me from an accident twice now while backing out of parking spaces with limited visibility on the sides.

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

great long distance cruiser! I averaged 20mpg over 2000 miles on my road trip with the HEMI and could EASILY go 500 miles on a tank of gas. seats were comfortable, cabin was quiet, and passengers had plenty of room. Lots of cup holders and power outlets for everyone's toys. The pano sunroof is awesome and I love the way it looks. To top it off, it's still a Jeep when it comes to venturing off the pavement!

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

Great lines and "stance" at every angle and looks flowing even when parked. Perfect long-distance cruiser with terrific performance and economy for an SUV that can haul 3-1/2 tons. Comfortable and QUIET interior, an equal or better than the various Mercedes, Audi and BMWs I've owned over the years and a world better than what I owned from GM and Ford.

WK2 Ltd Hemi: ~ $40,000
Fuel fill-up: ~$100
The grin when passengers comment "Wow this is a JEEP?": priceless

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

After seeing today's Black Summit in person, I've gotta start with "Drop Dead Gorgeous". I just love how all the WK2s look from the front, esp. the Summits.

Then, of course, as chibianh say's, it's still a Jeep. It really does go off-road, unlike so many grocery hauler SUVs.

Heated seats are nice of course, but here in "hot" country I'm going to be curious to see how the ventilated seats work out. I'll be sure to report to the forum when it's 110 out (just a matter of time here.)

I'm sure I'll have more to add once I finally have mine.

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

Had mine for little over a month. 1,400 miles. It is a WOW. Seems like everyday someone comes up to me and asks how I like it. Gonna post a sign in the window "I LOVE IT"

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

You've made the right decision ordering one.

When the time comes to replace this vehicle, it will be another Grand Cherokee. This is after four consecutive GMC SUVs which I liked. I love my Jeep.

I initially thought the ventilated seats would only prove their worth in hotter temps, but they are great on long road trips too. Once you hit that 3-4 hour mark you can get some blessed relief.

Re: What are some positive things about the WK2?

I have nothing bad to say about the WK2. I love the look, ride, value, capabilities, the powerful V6, and the interior. The Grand Cherokee has always been my favorite SUV and the WK2 is no different. I would recomend the Grand Cherokee to anyone!
