Re: Quadra-Drive II vs Quadra-Track II

Honestly though most people aren't good at driving in slippery conditions. In most places these conditions are rare enough that you don't get enough practice. If technology can keep people safer we...

Re: Quadra-Drive II vs Quadra-Track II

I went from an 05 Hemi with QD2 to a 14 V6 with QT2. In auto mode it didn't feel as sure footed in snow and ice; however, once I used the selecterrain dial and switched to snow it did just as well...

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

I didn't even custom order mine but purchased my 2014 the day my dealer received their first two (was there for service on my 2005 didn't even know they'd have a 2014 in Feb 2013.) It had 1.7 miles...

Re: Comparison and feedback on 18" vs 20" wheels

I have the 20s and hate how easy they are to scuff. Even scuffed them on a deep pothole once. I also dislike the tires. The AT ones I'm accustomed to from my 05 were far better in snow.

Re: Lifetime extended warranties, do they make sense?

I've been considering this myself. I'd go lifetime because 100k in seven years isn't many miles to me. (Got mine in late Feb 2013 and went over 20k today.)

The 2005 I traded in was costly after I...
