Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid. She's been a great vehicle - certainly not the quickest thing on the block but great mileage and totally trouble-free... looking forward to a bit more room and power, nicer everything...

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

Traded in a top of the line 2010 Ram 2500 crew cab shortbed diesel 4x4 Laramie, leather, power everything, with 95,000 miles. It took me on a lot of road trips for the past 3 years but it suffered from too many issues including leaving me stranded in the middle of nowhere in Nevada. The Cummins was an unstoppable beast---just everything around the Cummins that disappointed me.

Hope the '12 Overland is more reliable. It certainly feels good on the road, plenty of power, comfortable, although nothing beats the power of a Cummins 6.7 liter turbo diesel--650 pounds of torque means it does not even kick down going up long hill climbs---It just goes like a freightrain, and comfort in those Barca-lounger size seats with romm for everything in the Ram was superb. The Overland is snug, well padded and plush--while some folks says it drives like a tank...No, a full size diesel 3/4 ton 4x4 with a replacement Ranch Hand bumper grill (300 pound steel bumper) is a tank. A veritable King Tiger II.

Ironically, even at 95,000 miles the Ram had no squeaks, buzzes, or rattles--Can't say the same about the Overland.

Waiting to take another road trip with the Jeep GC Overland. Makes parking a lot easier than trying to pilot a crew cab around parking lots!

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I traded in my Jaguar X Type. Great little car, but when I tried to fit four adults in the back seats it just wasn't big enough.... Typical of me I went from too small to too big. But I am a happy camper!

Getting rid of 2009 Toyota Corolla LE. 58k miles. Good little car. Expecting our first child. Need something more like a family car. Enter: 14 Overland.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

My lease on the Patriot is supposed to end in July 2014, but my mileage will run out by November. Looking to get into a 2013 JGC if my dealer can make it so I'm not making payments on two vehicles since I can only use one at a time. I have more than 10,000 miles left on it. Hoping to get a steal on a 2013 with everything that I need -- I see one on a lot near me that would be pretty much perfect.

Not dumping my Patriot for any reason other than the lease... the Patriot has been flawless for me. Looking into getting something a little bigger with more modern capabilities.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I traded in a 2011 Mazda 3 for my 2011 Laredo X. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I miss the fuel economy, but it's great to feel like a man again!

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I traded in a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara... white with black interior. I liked it a lot but we go to our cottage every weekend and I didn't anticipate how much my wife would worry about airbags in the back for the kids and fiberglass roof... got me thinking I was a bad dad... lol.. So I got 1K dollars less than I paid for it on trade and 4 percent below invoice on the JGC Overland.. couldn't be happier. I have had some REALLY great and REALLY bad cars in my days, but this I think feels perfect.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

We are trading in my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara and my girlfriend's 2007 Jeep Liberty. Love my Wrangler but will order a new one when the diesel is available in them. I had been wishing I had a lower rear end - due to ordering confusion on the 2012s I ended up with 3.09 instead of 3.73 (max tow previous to MY12 came with 3.73). The lift and tire size aren't doing the tranny any favors. Hurry up diesel!

Will be ordering Brilliant Black/Jeep Brown Light Frost CRD
- engine block heater
- QDII
- advanced tech pkg

Traded in my 2010 Infiniti EX35 for the 2014 CG. I needed more room than the Infiniti had to offer (ie baby seat). Everything else about the Infiniti was exceptional.
