Any real reliability issues or problems with the JK/JKU?
I thought highway driving in the JKU was solid, not squirrely like the JK or TJ (2 door's). Even at 90 (Closed Course, of course) it wasn't bad, even with the premium soft top.
Quiet enough to have...
Fuel economy isnt much better, space is also very close. I have not driven one of the newer ones, but I test drove one a few years ago and it didn't seem any better than a Wrangler.
I agree, it will be better on gas, will ride better, and will be quieter.
It lacks the removable top and some off-road capability, but definitely worth a test-drive.
That sucks. Luckily mine weren't in too bad of places. 2 in the work parking ramp (IC icing), and the other was HPFP kicking me into limp on the middle of a busy street (luckily there was a bank...
Cherokee's are nice, but I can get over the headlight situation. Plus, I'd need the 3.2 to tow, which will drop mpg's a bit.
ha. Work parking ramp.
ha, no. All done with VW's.
I agree, the TDI was great (when it wasn't broken) and I did like it.
The Wrangler isnt that bad: relatively quiet, pretty comfortable, nice interior. Plus it can...
Hopefully you have better luck with the TDI than I have had. I don't trust it anymore after having it leave me stranded 3 times in less than 3 years.
Yeah the drop...
They really aren't that bad on road. It definitely does not ride like a car or a luxury suv, but it is much more refined than the TJ's and even 2dr JK's.
Good to hear.
That's what I fear,...
I agree...they are a great balance of comfort and stability.
I had a 93 with a 4cyl and 5 speed. Car had 150-200k on it and the thing was solid (less problems than my almost new TDI)
Looking to get rid of my 2012 Golf TDI for a new Wrangler Unlimited (Sport S).
Why: TDI problems. HPFP at 19k, unconfirmed intercooler icing at 18k and 32k. Dealer fixed HPFP, but after tow VW found...
I agree. (HPFP and IC Icing before hitting 33k miles)
I am so jealous of all the sweet cars & Lotus you see.
Was in VA, so I went out yesterday morning. Solid show, I will definitely be returning when I an in the area. Will post pics later.
