Didn't find a better place to put this.
Yesterday the SWMBO and I took the 2012 GC Limited on it's first real trip. We traveled to my dad's house for Father's day. This post is to give my opinion on the GC.

Our trip was around 575 miles and let me first say the Jeep is just wonderful. We all noticed upon completion of the trip that we were not as beat up as we were when making the same trip in my wife's G6. The ride of the GC is really quite good for an SUV and was a big reason for the added comfort. The climate control system worked very well on a 100 degree day and had no issues keeping everyone cool, especially my sister who rode along in the rear seat and stated a couple of time she was cold.

The Hemi was just awesome, it has more than enough power to move the GC down the interstate at 78-79 MPH ( 75 MPH Speed Zone) and still averaged 19.8 MPG for the trip.

On the return leg yesterday we drove through a decent West Texas thunder storm and the GC performed well in those conditions as well. The only thing I could complain about was the factory tire selection. The Fortera's do not seem to have the water shedding ability I would like to have and I noticed a little tendency to hydroplane. Not too bad but nevertheless it is there and when the time comes I will get some tires more suited o the Jeep.

So to sum it up after my first real trip I am even more satisfied with my now 5 week old GC and hope my "affair" continues.
