Fantastic color! As someone who spent a lot of time hanging around in a dealership shop, I think you'll be happy with it. The only time I saw one in overnight was for a recalled backseat.

That Green is awesome! Now having mine for about 5 months I still think it is great, does well in snow (tested a few times) and handled long travels great. The back cargo area is a little small for the vehicle size but its larger than the Patriot so its still a win. The power liftgate is neutral with me. I didn't specifically want it, but I wanted the remote start and they came in the same package. Lots of places list them as cautions for used car market but I'm not concerned. Looking to put on the Hazard Sky lift (1") and slightly larger tires but nothing too crazy. Overall, would buy again without hesitation.

Has your transmission failed yet?

We're already over 100k, so it's proven to be just as reliable as any other transmission.

You ever look around at how everything and everyone around you sucks and think, "maybe it's me that sucks"?

I mean, you dig up an old thread to poop on a car you don't now, nor ever have owned, as if some person you've never met having the misfortune of a transmission failure would somehow enrich your life. Is that really what you want the people on this board to go through? Will me or Reno, or one of the other KL owners losing a transmission really make you happy? Since you had a Renegade (and it wasn't even a trailhawk, was it?), Would one of us having problems with a different transmission in a different car really validate your animosity?

You need to stop with this. I rather not lock this thread because of you trolling. There is no reason to dig up this thread just for spite.

The Renegade has the same exact transmission as the Cherokee. The Trailhawk just got a different final drive ratio, otherwise the same exact transmission.

That POS transmission turned my Renegade into a giant turd. I hated driving it. I was so glad to get rid of it.

CSUENGR-You had a bad experience with a car, that sucks, and you got rid of it for a vehicle you like. That is a good thing. You have made your views known for people to take or leave.

Now since this was dug up, I know use mine as a DD with the new job. I've got new Cooper Discoverer tires (265/65) as well. Usually one day a week after work instead of turning onto my street I just jam up to the hills behind the house and cruise around for a bit. Zero articulation but lots of skid plates so it kind of evens out lol

Just rolled over 9k miles still smells new. Enough room for day trips with the GF and kids, though not really for camping with all of us. Ah well that's just an excuse to take Susan anyway...

GF just purchased a 2008 Commander Overland with the hemi about a month ago after her exploder died. Really jealous of all the cool stuff on there but not having a car payment is bomb so I'll suffer on. ;)
