Something I noticed on the WK2's is that the top of the steering wheel blocks the top of the gauges - unless you tilt it way up. I prefer it tilted downward and it that position to much of the cluster is blocked. I'm also curious to see if the seats will "soften up" after awhile, they are way to stiff - possible due to the ventilation design. While ride quality is a major improvement, the driving position/seat comfort in my WK seems so much nicer than the WK2.

Well, if it was Karma then why did it happen to others? Guess there's a lot of bad people buying the new SRT's huh?

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

Now I'm really worried. Is the Deep Cherry Red Pearl Coat really THAT blaaah? I have one on order. if its closer to metallic maroon or wine, it sounds like the Sienna color on my old 2000 Grand Cherokee. My current 2006 SRT8 is Inferno Red, which I really love! Have I made a huge mistake which I can't undo? Have any other JeepGarage members seen Deep Cherry Red on a 2012 SRT8 and actually LIKE it? Also, why would Chrysler select such an ugly color from all their available Reds for our vehicle. Going back to Inferno Red or Red Rock would have been more logical. I'm steamed.

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

The SRT 8 that was on display at the New York Auto Show better have been Deep Cherry Red Pearlcoat otherwise Chrysler has misrepresented its red on this vehicle and I will not be happy when mine arrives. All the ads and even the posting on their headquarters Better be the correct color red. Anyone have any insight on this?
Have fun,
Matt

The color is different. The "red" at the NY Auto Show was Deep Molten Red, which is what I wanted originally as well. The "red" now is as you mentioned, Deep Cherry Red which is definitely not the same color and is more pink/maroon in hue I think. They changed because of shortages in paint from overseas.

Totally misrepresentation of color by Chrysler they should be totally embarrassed by doing that at shows and advertisements! The srt8 better not come in looking purple or burgundy. It better be red.
Not amused,
Matt

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

My in-laws just got rid of there 200 Crimson Red Metallic Bonneville last year for a 2010 GC Laredo. I immediately thought of that car/color when I saw the SRT8, maybe one small shade lighter. Below are two pics of the color, one in sunlight and another not in direct sunlight (which will be the norm unless you live in FL/HI/Southern Cal, etc.)
