Casm, you’ve been doing some serious work to whip your KJ into shape. Nice job.


Thanks! With everything that's going on right now, this really isn't a good time for us to be changing vehicles, so I've been taking the approach of just doing what it needs to keep it in good shape for the longer term. Next year I'm going to start looking at lease-return (specifically) 2018 diesel Grand Cherokees, but whether or not a jump to one of those happens is going to be dependent on more factors than just, "we could use something slightly larger".

Mine’s been sitting mostly. There are not a lot of places to go during the pandemic, and when I do use it it’s all for local trips to the grocery store. I have been logging about 10-12 mpg these days due to no highway miles.


I hear you, and am in largely the same boat. My consulting business is in a busy period right now (everyone's trying to get their end-of-year wants in before January 1st), but it's been dead since about late March / early April. As a result, I've largely been putting gig economy delivery driver miles on the KJ this year because it's the one thing I can do that fits around the irregular school schedule I also have - so it's all (literally) grocery getter runs around here.

Good day. I recently bought a Buick car. This car is ideal for carrying a lot of things. Especially the 2020 Buick Regal TourX is very nice and roomy. Generalists are kind of an endangered breed in the States, and even those that remain must evolve over time to survive in the more modern market.
