Re: Renting a G.C.

I've rented a GC from Enterprise in LA, but it's plates said Arizona if that counts for anything! My research found that it was only the airport locations that had 2014 models in their fleet. The...

Re: 2014 GC OWNER'S Review

I've had my Jeep for about 2 months (3500 miles) now and I'm thoroughly happy with the purchase. The V6 is enough power for my day to day driving, and the sport mode gives extra kick when I need it....

Re: 2014 GC gas mileage 3.6L

I have ~3,000 miles on my '14 V6 Limited 4x4 and I'm averaging 15.7 mpg with mostly city driving (manually calculated, not per EVIC). I'm in Los Angeles, so even the highways are a bit stop and go...

36 months - 0.0%
48 months - 0.9%
60 months - 1.9%

Re: 2014 diesel production

Ideally, I'd agree. But that means I wait until October to drive one, place an order in November, and receive my car in January. That's a little tough to swallow (but advice worth heeding).

Would be a helluva drive back (in a good way), but I'm hoping I can strike the same deal in the competitive SoCal market. That way, I can drive to CO both ways ;)
