10,000 miles on 2012 JGC 4x4 V6; report
 
A mini-report, actually ...

Purchased new in 10/2011 (ser no. 960562) with 100 miles on the speedo, as it was driven from an out of town dealer. In four months time I have traveled extensively, ie, over 10,000 miles. In summary, all of my expectations were met or exceeded. I would rate my satisfaction as 'extremely satisfied' with all aspects of the vehicle. This is remarkable considering my rear-wheel drive bias. (My last four cars were rear wheel drive German sedans or sportscars, each of which are considered excellent driving machines.)

The Jeep is solid and stable, with a V-6 that's got plenty of power for the mountains. I haven't gotten under 20.7 mpg city driving. Although I can't do better than 24.8 pure highway driving.

X Package, leather seats and navigation are essential and not a waste of money. Picky people who have traveled with me remark that the interior "is very nice." I think the interior is excellent!

I have yet to hear an odd noise or rattle, and obviously, have experienced no problems whatsoever. I could go on and on ... but, what a bore!

What a relief it is to buy a car and not have Regrets!!!!

I have a 2011 V6 Overland with 11k miles on it, and there are a few small issues I've had, but overall I feel the same way you do. It's a great vehicle. Iv'e been to the Smokeys and the Blue Ridge Parkway with it also.

One year and around 14K miles, no problems besides tranny jerks which been reprogrammed about week ago and now it is great. No other issues, I might be financing this track after lease is over, unless Jeep will finally make diesel engine model :) Don't care about leather and navi in track, that is my MB is for :)

I have just over 19,000 in eight months. I have had a few minor problems but by far this is the best grand that I have owned. This is my 5th.

After almost 5 months and just under 4000 miles I must say, I love this Jeep. I really look forward to driving it. Just love it!
Did I mention that I love this Jeep? :lol:

21000 miles on my V6 Laredo X and its still great (Bought Oct 2010)
Milage is a bit less than expected though, 14-16 pure city 17+ mixed 24+ on 4000 mile trip from Toronto to Florida and back in Mar. 2011 with 5000 mi. to start. Had the software updated (12 updates) June 2011 & it fixed most of the poor shift mapping between 2nd and 3rd, still not perfect but way better than before.

After about 10 months and 13,000 miles all I needed was a brand new engine. Haha, couldn't help myself.

Glad many others are having a great experience and I hope once I get mine back I'll be trouble free.

13k on mine. Bought with 300 I think. Dealer had to trade for it. They had a pic of it with 7 before they drove it here.

Problems. Driver heated seat kicks off after 10 minutes. And won't come back on until the car is restarted.
Dislikes. V6 gear ratios. First is way too tall.

But overall it is very nice. I get a clunk every now and then but it may be the way I drive it.

Gas milage.
High 26 mpg
Low 17.6 towing about 1500 lbs.
Average over 13k. My wife drives it city all week and I drive it on the weekend. 20 mpg
She gets about 18-19. I get 22-23mpg.

I have a couple of questions:
- How do you know if the truck needs reprogram?
- How much is reprogramming at dealer?

Thanks a lot.

Five months and 6k miles. Except for one spurious warning light and (now fixed) vanishing radio/nav settings, zero problems. Best vehicle we've ever owned, and love it like a good hunting dawg.
