Re: 2012 runs 13.81

$60k + 13s ≠ good value

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Face the facts people, more expensive than the old model or not, it is still the best bang for your buck performance SUV on the market. Period.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

I will stop the harping over price and will agree it is a fantastic vehicle (and one I could afford if I so chose to purchase) but will never buy new. Perhaps a 2-3 year old one, but NEVER new.

Beacause a lot of what you pointed out (suspension, AWD selec trac) are simply similar systems to those found on the other GC trims and certainly CANNOT be considered completely new systems and thus justify such a large increase IMO.

So can everyone cut him a break?

I for one am sick and tired of the WK2 haters here, personally I can do without your preaching of how overpriced it is.....

if you think it is overpriced or if you can't afford it, stick to your "unsurpassed" WK1, is that really hard to do?
It had gotten on my nerves so I vented. Sorry and thanks.

Show us some dollar figures. Sure things like the brakes are more expensive. But how much more? Quantify your remarks.
