    Was it 2wd? ... I had one for 2 years after my JK and the best I could get was 19-21 really pussyfooting it from Framingham to Chelmsford and back every day.

    Wonder if it was the engine/trans combo. I think it was the last year of the 2.4 with CVT... bought it new in 2012

    I think it's more of the owners that are the issue, and not the trucks. just how the world is these days.

    But the Jeep's are actually hand grenading at time

    It’s not bad after the latest flash... people have unreal expectations; this isn’t a dual clutch racecar.

    Probably a lot of truth there. My new Ferd has taken me a while to get used to. The SD shifts slow and deliberate so, when you're cruising along and need to get up and go, it takes it's time, downshifts and does eventually go. I've been driving it in tow/haul mode lately and been absolutely loving it. It holds gears longer, downshifts less and uses the built in grunt of the engine to go rather than bother downshifting. It's like a completely different truck.

    I have an 18' and at first it was sorta crap transmission, I just used ECT and the fake manual mode to get around it on hills. After my last flash about 5 months ago its been great. I pass people up steep hills, and can take multiple cars at once if I time things correctly. This truck has plenty of balls if you want to learn how to drive it right. Now it isn't a race car, so some passes I would do with my ecoboost I wont try in my taco. Is that a bad thing? My wife doesn't doesn't think so and it's probably stopped me from doing a few stupid things too :curls:

    Lots of 3rd gen guys want a M series performance out of this thing, its like they didn't pay any attention to what they were buying or test drive it.
