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

I actually bought 2 2013 JGCs. One for me and one for my wife. She ended up liking mine so much we just had to buy her one. We bought them a few months apart.

I dumped a 2012 GT500 for the JGC.

My wife dumped a 2012 F-150 for hers.

(first post!)

Welcome to Jeep Garage!

Hopefully your JGC can keep your interests a little longer!

130k miles on the odometer, and I've put almost $8k into the motor since the 100k mark. Time to cut my losses and get something better
I'm having second thoughts on trading my car in. I was considering buying a beater to eat up some of the commute duty so I don't put a ton of miles on the JGC, but I may just keep my subie. She's been good to me until recently, and one of only 500 made that year. I should have spent the $8k on a new motor, but my dealership duped me into just replacing the bad parts on my heads.

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

So I traded my 2004 Cayenne S for 2013 Overland Summit. I really loved the Cayenne but couln't bare to deal with the high cost of repairs any longer so I was between an Srt8 and the Summit. Although I like the summit, I really miss the Cayenne and think I should have gone Srt8 so it was not such a huge leap down in performance. With the way the SRT drops in value compared to the Summit, do you think I have any chance in trading it for a used 2013 SRT without taking a huge bath? I know I will have to pay some $$$, but I would stick it out if it is outrageous. Oh, mine is mineral/ saddle with 3500 miles.

I replaced my 2008 Cadillac CTS with my new Overland. I needed the additional cargo space. The JGC is every bit as comfortable and nice to drive as the CTS and the V6, out of Eco mode, moves the JGC as smoothly as the 3.6 DI moved the CTS.
