just to let you know, i have ditched my G6 GT.

tired of the tight steering, no steering and starter issues. love the car, but don't love the headaches.

so i traded for something i have always wanted.....a JEEP! yea, quite a change. but i did get one that was loaded, as Wranglers go. i also got the Unlimited model which is 15" longer.

even though i work at a Chrysler Jeep dealer in Indy, i drove to Cincinnati to get the color and options i wanted. i'm leasing THIS one, so no more UP-SIDE-DOWN!
in 3 years if i still like it, i may buy it.....which right now is the way i'm leaning, but who knows what will be available in three years.

so, its been great being on here, but i will problably move on to some Jeep Club or something and harass THEM for a while. ha ha

good luck and best wishes to all.........kevin ;)

p.s. i'm changing my 'name' to Jeep6Action....ha ha

I've had my GTP a month now, 1200 miles. She is really starting to pull now. I really like this car and love driving it.
Wait until you have it a year and hit 12K, then see how much you love it with the body flex. Good luck with your Jeep! I had an '01 Grand Cherokee before I got the G6, looking back, getting the G6 was the worst thing that I have ever done. But at the time it was the only way to get better gas milage.

thanks....as for the gas mileage, i only live 2 miles from home, so i don't think it will kill me if gas prices jump up again. and if they do, i'll just go buy an old beater Honda Civic to drive.

and about the 'NEW' Wrangler.....well, i'm sure there will be a 'NEW' price tag with it AND i have yet to see anything about an 'Unlimited' model with the longer wheelbase and more interior room. thanks for the concern, but the reason i got this Wrangler is because i wanted one BEFORE the new one came out. i wanted a REAL JEEP, not the new, watered down version.

i'll check in from time to time to see wazzz up............... :cool:

My aunt just got a jeep grand Cherokee srt8 fully loaded. My dad has had a jeep he prizes for awhile. It is a 84" Cj that was made by jeep for a race car driver after he won a season and my family has lots of racing connections and so he bought that off of him. It was all done up with off-ride equipment, like a new engine, huge tires, new suspension. All that kind of stuff not exactly sure what all was done to it i have just heard the stories of it. To top it off tho it gets horrible gas milage I think my dad said like 8 miles to the gallon maybe not even that. My dad also just bought a cj at a auction to sell and everyone is drooling over it the first day in a town of about 300 they got 10 calls in 4 hours lol.

i see your point, but the biggest deal is that in '07 there won't be an "Unlimited" model with the longer wheelbase and more interior room. only the 'standard one' to begin with. but there are 'rumors' that there will be a FOUR DOOR model (?). so, i may have one of the last 'long wheelbase' two doors and THAT is what i wanted. and as far as options, i've got Sirius Satellite Radio w/6 Disc In-Dash CD Changer, Cruise with Leather Wheel, Air Conditioning (std), Side Steps (for the girlfriend), Chrome Grille AND of course (you will appreciate this) a SIX SPEED TRANSMISSION!!! :cool:

hey, "pig avatar man" here. i still drop in from time to time for 'comic relief' of my own!!

someone asked for a 'pic' of my new ride, which i would gladly post. HOWEVER, i am much more a comedian than a computer genius and since you have experienced my 'comedic expertise', you can see how bad i suck at computers.

any suggestions on posting a pic and i'll get one on here?

"pig avatar man", out! :D
