Re: WK2 DownUnder

Re: Jeep service costs

Have a read of this http://www.widman.biz/uploads/Transaxle_oil.pdf . I would think if the manual says GL5, you should definitely use GL5 particularly if you are towing. It seems GL4 has only half...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I too find that the steering feels like it has too much power assist. This could be an American thing. Try switching to sport mode. With more push than pull from the wheels, you'll find the...

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Extended warranties are effectively scams. I would be most surprised if anyone has ever been saved from destitution by an extended warranty.

Re: Jeep service costs

I would think it's miles accurate enough. I wasn't aware that temperature was an issue in refilling but I'd guess it's taking account of expansion of the gearbox case.
