Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

Yes, it probably will be more costly upfront to purchase the ML (depending on what version/options of the GC you are interested in......the MB dealership is really the only premium car dealership we...

Re: Who would like to see the Jeep GC Diesel return?

I guess I would have to disagree that the Jeep CRD turbodiesel was a 'piece of crap'.....in fact it was one of Ward's Auto World 10 best engines in 2008 (this award in 2009 also won by the Hemi).......
