Here are my initial thoughts in no particular order:
- I live in a very hilly area, and it's no surprise the those hills absolutely kill the all electric range. It's still just enough for me to get to / from work without using gas, so I'm happy.
- I know people will disagree with this, but it's my opinion that adaptive cruise control is a MUST considering the "drag" of the regen / max regen brakes. It makes for a MUCH nicer and relaxing driving experience.
- A level 2 charger is a must. Sure, it will charge overnight using the included charger, but 12-13 hours to fully charge limits the usefulness of the electric range feature.
- The steering is sloppy and disconnected. You really need to be playing attention to what you're doing at higer speeds.
- The cloth seats are much more comfortable than the leather ones, not to mention they're warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and save you nearly $2K. (I'd actually pay $2K NOT to have the leather interior LOL.)
- I'm completely SHOCKED (no pun intended ) how smoothly the vehicle shifts between electric and ICE usage. I pretty much need to watch the RPM needle to know when it happens.
- This is a high vehicle. It's rediculous that the Rubicon doesn't offer a factory running board or rock rail with step option like some of the other models. I'll be swapping my standard rock rails for the MOPAR performance ones with a step to assist my 5'2" wife
- The Sky One Touch roof is an obscene amount of money, but is totally worth every cent. Yes, it's a little louder than a hardtop inside the vehicle, but I would describe it as "plenty quiet". At highway speeds you can easily hold normal conversations with passengers without raising your voice. The downside is not being able to use automatic washers, but spraying it off manually isn't a big deal for me where I live.
- Currently I'd say I love everything but the steering. I know my tires might be a little overinflated from the factory so I'm going to start there trying to correct it.
