Re: WK2 or Wrangler Unlimited for Family

I have a Wrangler 4 door now and love it. Fun to drive, etc. Wrangler is loud and unpleasant on trips > 60 minutes, and the backseat is terrible for adults to sit in. It is rear wheel drive when not...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: In channel window vent shades

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why the late start/short production run of the 2016? Is this typical for the relatively small number of changes that are being introduced?

Re: Auto start question

With a brand new battery in the key fob. Also line of sight and depends where the receiver is on the vehicle. On my Wrangler it is on the left side. Nice to have on hot or cold days.

Re: Overland or Summit??

The only reason I can see to get the Overland is if you want the 18" wheel for offroad performance. If not the additional features make the Summit a much better buy.
