WK Laredo 2009 VS 2007 WK 5.7L V8 ? what to buy
 
Hi Everybody


I`m planning to buy a WK Laredo 2009 Sport shortly for 17 995$ Can
with 79 000km. Until I came across a 2007 WK 5.7L V8 for almost the same price. I`m really undecide now I really need your advice on this.:confused:

One thing for sure The noise of the V8 is amazing. I Do have a couple of questions maybe you guy could help me out.

Is there a big difference on the MPG between both?

Is there any major mechanical,Trim,Transmisson,4x4 problems. I should be aware of between those two Models ? Recall, Defect?

One last question regarding the Radio, I notice that they have different kind of radio the 5.7L 2007 do have the boston acoustic, the laredo 2009
have a more recent radio. Can I install a double din radio on both model?
Its seem complex for some radio installer, some told you cant, some told me you can, some told me that do need a a kind of module to bypass whatever, some told me a need to navi bezel, some told you don`t.
Finally I`m lost here. Anyway give me some feedback I sure some guy in here came across this.

i would stay away from the 3.7 it is not enough power for the weight of the WK. the mpg isnt that different between the 3.7 and the 5.7. the newer model is nicer looking IMO but it would be easier to enhance the 07 visually than it would be to enhance the performance of the 3.7
