QDII/ELSD on Dry Roads

I've seen a lot of discussion about QTII vs QDII in off-road conditions. My question is whether or not the Rear ELSD from QDII will improve handling/cornering/traction or other driving capabilities...

Re: about to buy Overland 2011... should i wait?

I tried that at one dealer. I can get the same discount on the 2011 and the 2012 but they're not willing to deeply discount the 2011s yet. I think the problem is that they really can't compensate...

Re: Opinions! Help!

Frost Beige looks super classy in person - I'd go with that over the black. But really, you can't go wrong.

Re: What to expect from the new HEMI 6 spd tranny?

That does indeed buck the trend. After a test drive, I thought it would be fine but perhaps didn't make the most efficient use of available power. But, if others agree that it's a very well-matched...

Re: Lease Question

You may be right there. I'll stand corrected and will replace my "4Runner" assertion with the Kia Sorento (which, by the way, has some decent features for the money as well as a lockable center...

Re: Parking Lot Ritual

Love this convo - my wife makes fun of my parking habits all the time. I will frequently park farther away so there are no other cars around (as she calls it, "as far away as humanly possible"), but...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm not exactly sure how the dealership is making their decisions, but the dealer is offering me the same deal relative to invoice on 2012 models as the 2011s. Perhaps they are betting that...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You can negotiate price relative to invoice.

If you have an American Express card, go to http://amexnetwork.zag.com/main.html

Dealers around me are offering pre-negotiated prices of $750-$1500...

Re: Lease Question

Unless you plan on purchasing the car at lease end (which most people don't do) or just can't afford a higher payment, IMO the GC is not the best car to lease, particularly in higher end trims. Even...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I guess it would depend on anticipated supply and demand, along with what the manufacturer is giving the dealership to push them. It could make business sense for them if they have a guaranteed sale...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So it sounds like dealerships will place orders now less based on the exact dollar amount of Invoice/MSRP and more based on the number/ratio of overlands, laredos, different options, colors, etc....

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

This sounds like a pretty significant problem. Is this happening on a lot of saddle leather interiors or is it only a sporadic defect?

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

My ranking after sitting in all 4:

1) Black/New Saddle w/ Saddle Upper Trim (Overland Summit) - The Overland Summit interior looks great. I've heard some others on this board say they think it's...

Poll: Best GC Interior Color

Since I think the consensus is that the new GC (particularly the Overland) has taken the interior to a new level of luxury, I'm interested in what color scheme everyone thinks brings out its best...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Exactly. But if they are not going to make a 2012 Overland Summit (and that's what you want) now's our only chance since they have stopped production on 2011 models.

I am interested in a V8...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for the welcome :)

Mostly referring to changes for 2012 (i.e. 6-speed mated to the V8, final confirmation on colors, Overland Summit continuing for 2012, any other tweaks or a change in...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

First time poster. Looking for an Overland/Overland Summit and a dealer just told me today that the factory has closed orders for 2011. Anyone hearing when we'll get updates on the official scoop...
