Re: WK2 is not exciting me

Track the SRT8...... with traction control completely off....

I can guarantee you that it will get you excited..... (as long as you keep it on track and off the wall)

Don't get me wrong, it's a fine vehicle, comfortable, quick, luxurious and well thought out. But overall? It just doesn't excite me. Anyone have a similar experience?

Other cars I've had or still do have:

Volvo s60r (awesome car)
Infiniti g35 (one of the first in the country, nice car at the time)
Mercedes c230 kompressor (Pile of garbage)
BMW 335i, 328 xi (nice cars, albeit small and common)
2003 Grand Cherokee Laredo (Just a fantastic all around vehicle)
2000 Audi a4 6 cylinder (pile of junk, extremely slow)
Acura RSX (typical honda, did 9000 rpm with a chip in it, solid all around)
Ferrari 360 Modena (What more can I say)
I can settle this for you.... Although I am a new member on this site, I have always been a problem solver. According to your list "2003 Grand Cherokee Laredo (Just a fantastic all around vehicle)"
I will scour the earth and find a fantastic 2003 GC for you. Since I am a really nice guy I will also take that ol' SRT off your hands. Even trade, interested?

This is a great point. I've scared myself a few times with TC and ESC off. Good cold weather and near sea level. I've had some pretty violent launches with the WK2. I've seen a 4.2s 0-60 according to the EVIC.
