Re: Possible Transmission problem!

This is exactly why I always purchase the Mopar extended service contract. Having said that, what is the standard power train warranty on the 2010? Could be you are worrying about something you don't...

Re: What do people upgrade to from the SRT Jeep?

Re: What do people upgrade to from the SRT Jeep?

Re: 2015 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features, Options and Pricing

Re: ECO mode on the V6 trailhawk

Who cares about ECO mode? Give me performance over mpg any day. I don't want any of the stop/start garbage either. They need to figure out how to shoehorn a small V8 into the Cherokee.

Re: Leasing a WK2 - something I don't understand...
