No GJC; purchased Compass instead
 
This site has been a wealth of information but in the end I decided that the cost of gas with the GJC was just a little bit too much and I have ordered a Compass. So I'm still in the Jeep family. :) I'll still be around the boards though.

I hear ya. I just filled up today. $81.00 and that was at a super good price per gallon. Ugh.

I am getting better way better MPG than I expected though.

Why not the new Cherokee?

Funny, I traded in a 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R (AWD sedan) and I think it's funny that I get the same mileage with a vehicle that has the same size engine (but more HP), but weighs 1000lbs more.

I'm thoroughly enjoying my 2012 V6 and it's mileage. :D

Because the POS Equinox that I am getting rid of was a first year model and I am leary of getting another first year model. The new Cherokee isn't out yet either and I want rid of my current auto now LOL. Actually I wanted rid of it 2 years ago.

I test drove a few Compasses and Patriots just to see if I liked them, mainly for the added fuel economy. In the end, I HATED the CVT gearbox in the Patriot, absolute crap, and thought the Compass felt too much like an AWD Neon. The quality just didn't feel like it was there. But then again, none of the local dealers had a well equipped Compass, mainly base and mid range models. Drove the WK2 and had to have one.

Compass and patriot have regular 6spd automatics now, except for the trail rated version for some reason.

Did not know that. All the Patriots I drove were Trail Rated models, a Freedom Edition and a Limited. Loved everything about the Limited except the CVT 2 speed gearbox.
