    My 2018 is running great! This is a great engine, I appreciate the power and extra torque off road. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely go with the turbo again.

    14000 miles only issues are:
    Passenger seat noise when making a turn
    Brakes squeak every start up wet or dry
    Driver side speaker distorted/ vibration noise
    Intermittent uconnect issues
    Otherwise still impressed the way she drives and how good she looks clean or dirty :jk:9BAFD3F6-FA05-46A1-86EB-A6A93D214390.png

    Just under 14,000 miles, no issues whatsoever with the engine! I did have to have my rear differential rebuilt though... There was a knocking coming from the rear whenever you'd let off the gas while cruising at lower speeds. Dealership checked the diff fluid and it was just about black and pretty burnt, the clutch packs in the limited slip weren't working anymore and were acting like an open diff. Got it back from the dealer last week and it drives better now than it ever did!

    No issues at Moab (ran Top of the World, Hell’s Revenge, Fins & Things, Steel Bender, and Poison Spider). The waterfalls obstacle at Poison Spider was crazy!

    Got my JLR as a factory order on Oct 2018 and just broke 8k miles... It my daily drive when I'm in town as I'm on the road for long business trips...

    Only issue was some sensor failure a month after getting Jeep had to replace my PVC Switch. Did the V41 Recall in Aug 2019.

    Runs great, wife enjoys it but does not drive it that much since she does not want to be the first to get a scratch. I did not tell her I have the first one as I touched it up.
