Re: Good Chrysler / Dealer Mistake / Not sure how to feel?

I have only owned GM, BMW and now Jeep. I tend to keep cars 7-8 years and sell with 50-80K miles on them. So far the BMW experience has been the best (but definitely most expensive). While I...

Re: Good Chrysler / Dealer Mistake / Not sure how to feel?

This was their explanation as the service agent on the phone tried to explain the logic. The $100 was as if I had purchased an extended warranty.

I have a sales slip from the dealer and paid...

Re: Good Chrysler / Dealer Mistake / Not sure how to feel?

Re: Heat Shield Rattling

I like the rivet or stiffener idea. Even just adding something like caulk (I know it has to be able to handle exhaust temperature to prevent a fire) would end the tuning fork effect.

Left side of vehicle, directly back from the front suspension about 2' in from the edge. From the front door hinge, about 1' further back to the rear of the vehicle.

Re: Your Opinion Please - Trade in 2011 Overland

This is flawed math.

A 5 year old vehicle with 60K miles has a trade in value of ~14K
So 40K - 14K = 26,000/60 = $434/month.

So not the greatest deal if you are typically a long term owner...

Re: Should I buy this Jeep? 2011 29K Laredo X
