They ran into the new 2019 Cherokee testing in camouflage.
Finally got to watch the whole video, couldn't believe they were passed by another JL on the highway along with that new Cherokee. I have no idea how many JLs are on the road right now, but not nearly enough to expect to see another one randomly.

Define defective.
When the Jeep engineers indicate they have a fix for the clutch, as I quoted, that means, by definition, it's defective as of this moment. And that, in turn, makes it impossible to know how it will operate once it is fixed. Which, finally, makes it impossible for me to know at this time whether I might want to buy a Wrangler with this clutch. Fortunately, I have time to wait until production units are reviewed.

I'll be glad to let you know how it is when it arrives.

reading these reviews, most of the reviewers miss the point of the mild hybrid system - it is mainly to smooth out turbo lag.

This is one of the best YouTube reviews I have seen. It was not dumbed down. Very much appreciated.
Yes, it's the best so far. But I'm sure I missed some. Which one is 2nd for you?

The KBB one that Jack mentioned is pretty good. Great videography and technical bits. Slightly too silly though. Is it common for grown men to act that way in Germany now?
