Re: New Check Engine Light

Re: Tires on ORA equipped GC at NYC Auto Show

They are far from aggressive. They actually ride as smooth, if not smoother, than the Latitudes which came stock with the ORA package. I had Duratracs on my last truck and while even those...

I will give it a shot, but I suspect I may need a slightly downhill grade to find the sweet spot.

Re: Tire size (CRD specific version)

I want to know your secret to getting 30+ mpg at 80+ mph WITH bigger tires.

Re: USA Today - Test Drive: New diesel Cherokee not quite Grand

Break it down by individual fuel ups and you have a better statistical sample. Regardless, while the sample size may not be up to par for an academic paper, it's enough to get a good idea for most.

Re: 6K miles for first oil change

I had my first done at 3k, oil life indicator was at about 10%. I drive almost all city though. I like to get my first oil change done between 3-5k anyway though.

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

This.

Even the 18s are a bit worrisome when it comes to curb rash for me. Of course I was used to my 35" tires on 17" rims I had on my H3:)

Re: Diesel reliability for short trips

I disagree. Like I said, I drive over 90% of the time in the city and over the past 3 months of ownership I've never been prompted to do so.

If he's driving only 75% city why would he?
