Re: WK2 Quality Control
Woo Hoo, just picked up the Jeep today. Driven about 100 miles to get the feel of car, about 1/3 city and 2/3 highway / freeway. No issues so far. Didn't notice any shudder at any speed, either upshifting or downshifting. At stops, the hemi was so smooth and quiet, I couldn't believe the engine was really running, had to glance at the tach to make sure there were any RPMs showing. Gobs of power when accelerating on the freeway from 40 - 80+.
There is no comparison between the WK2 and my current '96 ZJ. Even new, the ZJ wasn't anywhere near as refined and responsive. If this car holds up for 15 years like the ZJ, it'll be an incredible ride. I hope I don't find anything major over the next few weeks, but the first few hours haven't revealed any issues at all with the QC from Chrysler or the Dealer.
