Re: V6 Grand Cherokee...The good and the bad?.

The V6 is an awesome engine. Sure, if gas was free, I'd have an SRT Hell Cat.
If they made a V6 SRT I'd buy it in a heart beat. All the trimmings of an SRT with the V6 motor. I like the V6 as much...

Re: Whats your choice of oil for your WK2?

Chrylser MS-6395 is many specifications.
There is seperate requirments for 0w-20 and 5w-20

Just because it meets MS-6395 does not mean it's the correct oil.

0w-20 is probably fine but may void...

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

You said it right above.

You said I can pay $50K cash with 1/11 of our take home pay.

The math is really tricky here.

11 * $50K = $550K TAKE HOME PAY.

Take home means, after taxes.

Re: First Issue - No Sound

Note you will lose all settings if you factory reset it.
