Re: JGC RWD vs 4WD?

I would say get 4wd with V6.
Probably 4WD is the only option you will get more than you paid when selling. A rwd GC will be hard to sell and go for much less than 4WD.

You may need 4wd on the...

Re: Opinions/suggestions on a potential lease of a 2014 Overland

It seemed high to me but hard to tell. What is included in $4100 do they include the $1800 they pay for the RR? Is all the tax paid upfront in your state? I would suggest just keep the deal simple....

Re: A favor to ask of anyone with the 8spd transmission

This becomes a problem in stop and go traffic in auto mode. If I dont take my foot off the gas I will hit the car in front of me and as soon as I took my foot off the gas the tranny shifts into 2.

Re: FLEX FUEL with OCTANE BOOSTER?!

You cannot cheat the system because E85 is not giving less mpg because of the less octane as you think. It is higher octane than regular gas but it has less energy in it.

Re: FLEX FUEL with OCTANE BOOSTER?!

85 octane and E85 is different things. 87 octane is the regular fuel. E85is 85% ethanol. When you put E85 your mpg will be worse when I calculate putting E85 does not make economic sense.

Re: Uconnect Wish List
