Pretty sure FCA would need to have a legitimate BEV drivetrain *somewhere* before conjuring a BEV wrangler out of thin air. As much as I’d love one, and I would, it’s just not realistic to expect anything like that in the next 3-5 years.
Look at all the other mfrs who are releasing BEVs in...
Not which to buy, but which do you think the PHEV will be designed for? Will it be a pacifica style MPG improver that’s worthless offroad, or will Jeep do something awesome with the amazing torque available from electric motors to make a rock crawling beast?
I don't really get this - "Jeep Corporate" didn't screw anything up, it seems like this is on your dealer 100% plain and simple. Why would you get all bent out of shape at Jeep over the crummy actions of an independant dealership that they have little to no control over?
Sounds like you’re in a bit of a tough spot. At the end of the day though, you’d be a LOT better off of you either delivered pizzas one night a week to make up the $170, or just sell the Jeep on CL and skip making car payments altogether.
I know it’s not as much fun to drive a hoopty while...
I’ve read elsewhere on the forum that you can push the door check all the way in and just leave it unattached- obviously you won’t have the detents stopping your doors, but keeps have been ok without those for ages.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see - I’ve got a 2.0 turbo in the driveway that’s 10 years older than this one, and it runs great on 87. Slightly better on 91 apparently, but I could never tell a difference myself.
Wow, your wrangler either has a really huge gas tank, or you're getting screwed on 91 octane. Most places I see are a $0.20 difference, which equates to about $3.60 per tank - assuming you choose to use 91 and don't just run 87 anayway.
The real answer is because FCA was too cheap to add wireless CarPlay to their radio. It’s existed for a while now - I have it and love it. Doesn’t require BT 5.0 or anything wild (that would have excluded a lot of old phones, and Apple probably didn’t want to do that), but it does use WiFi.
Yup - a towel is all you need. Any moisture on the carpet/dash will dry out quickly in he sun.
Before I started carrying a towel in my Jeep, my butt would get wet if I drove before about 9am - no bueno.
