Re: My WK2 just rolled over 20k miles...my thoughts

Just hit 28k miles today. Two items were replaced under warranty, left-side mirror and stereo/info system (to address iPod sync problem). After 5 months, the iPod issue has resurfaced. Not sure if...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous, do you know if there are plans to show the MY14 JGC at any of the upcoming car shows? Specifically I would be interested in the New England Int'l scheduled for January 2013. It would be nice...

Re: 6290 mile road trip through 14 states

3 x 50 (states)...150 MPH.....the question, what was the rate of fuel consumption at that speed?? Short answer, who cares, it was worth it.

Re: Not to start a flame war, but I have a V6 Charger as a Rental...

I agree, this is something that can be addressed with software tuning. Comparing the acceleration between the SRT8 and 5.7 Hemi, the gap is (roughly) 3 plus seconds. Yes I know it is two different...

Re: Not to start a flame war, but I have a V6 Charger as a Rental...

A Hemi (non-SRT8) Jeep is slow. IMO, it is not lacking in HP or torque, simply throttle response. I have a MY11 Overland now with 27k miles. This past weekend both a new MDX and CR-V, yes a CR-V out...

Re: How do I not be a "mileage nazi"?

Re: Summit now or wait for 2014 Overland?

Re: 3 season vs. all-season tires, who spec what?

So I guess the question should read, "how many opt for the summer only tires?". I suspect all of the performance data from the magazines are based on the summer/3 season tires.

Re: Summit now or wait for 2014 Overland?
