New 2012 SRT8
3 Attachment(s)
Hey everyone,

I wasn't even in the market for a new car but my cousin was driving by a dealership and called me saying "have you ever heard of a Jeep SRT8?!" When I replied yes he told me I have to come see this one in a dealership about an hour from me. I decided to take his word for it and had them prepare the paperwork over the phone. One week later I picked it up and WOW, what a great vehicle. It terms of SUVs, I have not driven quite anything with the ride quality, interior build, and power for this kind of money. I am very pleased with the whole experience thus far and look forward to putting many more miles on it.

Very strong brakes
Nice Engine note (not overpowering in the cabin)
Terrific ergonomics (controls are right where I expect them)
Seamless navigation system (bluetooth, music, sync to ipod)
Adaptive cruise control is mind boggling. Works perfectly
Leather dash is a huge plus. Just screams high end.
Remote start, heated seats, heated wheel (very strong)
Not so low that it constantly scrapes on driveways
Premium sound system sounds great

Cons (very minor)
I can tell that getting in and out of the driver seat will wear the bolster quickly. I can't find a way around it.
Aluminum center stack doesn't feel up to par with the rest of the interior. If i can find a suitable covering I may alter it.

Overall A+

One day I will drop $65K on a spur of the moment phone call. Sweet ride btw. Wishing you many years of jaw dropping looks at traffic lights!
