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

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.

It was time to come back to Jeep after four consecutive GM 4x4 products. I've been researching the Grand Cherokee for some time now. Saw one parked outside a Costco a few weeks back and truly liked the look of it in person. A few test drives (and driving more than a few salespeople crazy) I decided on the Overland. After much internal discussion, I opted for the 3.7L instead of the 5.7 Hemi. Honestly, knowing my driving tendencies, it's best I stay with the smaller engine and try to keep approx. the same MPG I was enjoying with my previous vehicle. (early returns are that this one will be about the same in the city and better mpg on the highway)

So far, so good.

BTW... hello everyone!

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

I am trading in a 2001 WJ that I purchased in late 2000 with 78k miles on it. My biggest concern is I am going from the V8 to the new V6 (I dont do any towing and only travel to the mountains every now and then) but from my experiance in driving both, I think the 11yr old V8 is actually a little slower off of the start then the new V6. (shrug)

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

Wife's 2009 TSX Tech pkg with 33,000 miles. Handles well, but it's too small for a family and the ride is firm and just plain rough.
