Re: RWD vs 4X4

So when you're 25 miles from home shopping or something and that snow storm decides to come out of nowhere, how does that work out? Do you just call up the wife and have her bring the WRX for you ;)

Re: For those of you with an 8 speed on the V6

No, the evidence just says that the V8, diesel and SRT (all of which use the 870) are not having shifting issues while the V6 (using the 845) has been having multiple shifting issues.

re: For those of you with an 8 speed on the V6

Well, there is a difference, but not a huge one. I could only find size/weight for the 2wd versions, but here they are:

Length x Diameter, Weight
845: 672mm x 178mm, 176 lbs
870: 682mm x 200mm,...

I have a September build and have had zero problems. As for mpg difference from my 2012 V6 to my 2014 V8, it works out to 1.6mpg (I use an app to calculate vs the "optimistic" EVIC).

Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

This issue is with the V6's version of the 8 speed. The Hemi and Diesel Jeeps use a different 8 speed.

Ditto, the 5.7 rocks. And, I had the V6 in my 2012 Laredo. Average difference in gas mileage for me is 1.63mpg (I use an app to track it), not enough difference to go back to the six.

Re: Drove a 2014 Toyota Highlander today, my thoughts vs the WK2

Actually, it does have a sport mode. You can manually shift gears with the shifter. I know exactly what you're saying; exactly why I traded my 2012 for a 2014. The 8 speed is awesome IMO.
