Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

What a joke. This happened with the '07-'08 model change as well. It's called listening to your consumers and improving on the model.

Anyone with ANY knowledge of the past would have been able to tell you this update was going to happen.

Now excuse me, I'm going to go file a suit against the local Chinese food place. I got food last night and ate it. Now they are selling more today and I'm hungry again.

Led Zeppelin should sue itself for coming up with such an awesome second album and hurting sales of LZ1.

listening to improve is agreed on, but whats the deal with the front head lamps?
did anyone NOT like the front ones?

i love the 8 shifts and all, but i would prefer the front of a 12-13 to the 14's

its just an opinion dont get angry

I think it was a compromise.... I like the new design better (Personal opinion nothing else) but I am the guy who used to own a German LUX SUV that they want to buy a Jeep. I think the old design is definitely more true to the Jeep heritage and I don't have a problem with it but again I like the newer side by side.

I think they tried to keep the heritage to not piss off the loyal audience they have but are trying to appeal to others as well.

IMHO I believe it is a fair compromise based on those criteria... on the other hand not so sure on the "Cherokee" bit I will decide that with one in front of me.

I won't comment on the '12+ or '14+ aesthetics. I've been tossed under that bus too many times!

I didn't say that all the "improvements' were...... "improvements" in everyone's eyes! the '08+ durabright wheel coating was a terrible decision! ha!

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

... just bought one of the last 2013 SRTs and did so because I like the looks better, did not want the new video screens and got a huge discount That is needed to compensate for the lower resale value in five years. However, I have seen worse reasons to sue someone ... it is a shame because society pays for such frivolous law suits.

Well, I just bought a '14, and yes, it depreciated appreciably the instant it left the lot.
Sue the bastards!

I also bought a new computer recently, and the vendor just released an even better, bigger, better faster one. Gotta sue them TOO!

And these SHOES! Darn store put an even better pair in the same place on the display these were, which is simply unacceptable!

And this roll of Charmin! It looks like it has been SQUEEZED!
And the local Tarjay has an improved version on the shelves already!!!!

Sue em all
sue em all
sue the long and the short and the tall

[Sadly, I'm sure such a ridiculous suit would probably be accepted in some court somewhere....]

If you are really interested, have you mentioned to a dealer how much it costs to get a new customer as opposed to keeping an existing one?

My dealer that told me to wait a while before upgrading an old ZJ just to take a look at the '14 models before buying.

.... but anyone reading any automotive rag would have been aware that Marchionne had told Chrysler to spend some money on interiors and make the things more competitive.
