Concur. The 12's-13's are going to be the red headed step child in a couple years.

P.S. If anyone is near Harrisonburg, VA, keep a look out for my old 2012 Mineral Gray SRT. That's where it was sold just registered with the VA DMV.

Re: In love with my 2012 SRT8 GC

Ya I know a lot of guys are jumping ship to the 14's and that's great but I'm gonna hang onto this one for a long while! We couldn't really swing a 14 right now because we purchased our first home!! I did drive a couple 14's and just didn't feel the need to spend that much more. We really did rob the barn on this thing too!!! I'm gonna go this real simple and real clean!! I'm absolutely obsessed with the color now!! Gonna post some really sweet pics I just took with my real camera!! Thanks everyone!

Guys, the SRT is a great toy/car/truck ... No matter what year! I did not like the look front back of the 14 and did not have the need for the new dashboard - so for me it was easy. Soon there will be a newer SRT and they will say the same ... 14 outdated - 15 sooo much better 😍 ... Enjoy your SRT for what it is: the cream of the crop of GCs if you are not playing in a sand box 😀

4 years until another SRT, that's a long time in car years.

100% agree. There's always something better, faster, whatever. To me it's more about the SRT family than anything. Hell, if you get bored with your "not as good 2012" slap a turbo on it. A buddy of mine in the area has a fully built 440 in his "old" SRT but I'm pretty sure jeep engineers can't come up with enough gears in a transmission to keep up with him. Just take care of them and dump them on your terms - not because someone is telling you its outdated and/or this year it has 4.5 more HP - to me that's pure marketing at work (no offense).

To the rest of the world it's a Jeep thing and they wouldn't understand.

Re: In love with my 2012 SRT8 GC

Congrats on the your new ride, looks great! You mention that it has a max lifetime warranty on it. I tried to get one for my '14 but the best they said Chrysler will do on an SRT is 7 years / 100K miles. They will do the lifetime on the non-SRT models. I also tried to pull it up on the Chrysler warranty site and when you enter SRT into the field it declines you. I have the lifetime on my '08 Commander Overland and it is great. Thankfully I haven't had to use it much at all but when I have there have been no questions asked. If you can verify the coverage and let us know I'll go back and fight the dealer for it

I can in fact confirm for you that I do have the full max care protection plan for my 2012 SRT! It does say that it's pre owned protection service but is def for the correct vin number on our SRT!! That's probably why they said it would be a no go for your new 2014. I have all the paperwork in front of me as we speak. I thought he also said that my particular dealer did the pre owned certification which made it very painless for them to offer me the max care on this particular jeep. He did have to make a few phone calls to confirm that this SRT would be covered!

Don't agree. I have one of the earliest 2012's and still love it. Waiting for the next generation with the 6.2 Supercharged.
