Looking at replacing one of our vehicles with a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland turbo diesel.

Has any one got one of the no turbo diesel models who can comment on the build and material/trim quality, how do you find it in general and what did you have before and what did you compare it to.

This vehicle is not going to be used for any serious off roading except driving in paddocks..... will be mainly used for general sealed road driving with a dozen interstate trips towing our Ultimate.

They are an awesome car and outstanding value for money, especially as a tow vehicle.

Head over to Ausjeep and talk to owners there - Jeepers are remarkably frank about their vehicles and you'll get plenty of advice.

Yep they are a very good device. Trim/panels etc are beautiful quality - much better than previous car. Howevertyres are crap and the short suspension travel hampers it in more severe off-road terrain

If you want lots of information on the current Jeep have a look on Caravaners Forum, there is a thread has been going there for several months, there were some initial problems with some but all seem to be well sorted now. However if you make the time to go through the 71 pages you will get a good idea.

Thanks for the replies ..... It seems many don't the exist. LOL

Will have a look at the site suggested.

The Jeep will not do much real 4 wheel driving as we have a 12 month old fully set up 200 series for that.... the Jeep is going to replace one of our main cars and a ute.
