The real results of 2000 mile trip off the showroom floor
After reading the review of Consumer Reports on their take of the pros and cons on the 2014 Cherokee Latitude, I don't think they actually ever drove it. I purchase my 2014 latitude after trading in my 1998 Buick Park Avenue (which I loved dearly). My wife and I drove it home packed it full of travel gear (next day) than drove to the interstate with 27 miles on the speedometer. After a 500 mile break-in we bumped the speed up to 70 mph and kept it there for 2000 miles. The only thing changed from the manufacturer was I increased the tire air pressures to 40 PSI. We also used premium gasoline. The gas mileage averaged 35.5mpg. Used no oil. Engine is V6 3.2 SVVS. The transmission was a joy. The only tme I could feel it shift is when it went into passing gear..VERY SMOOTH! This jeep was equipped with stabiltiy control..WOW! I never owned a better handleing stock automobile. If you want to buy a SUV..get this one!! OH! BY THE WAY..I own a 1994 Jeep Cherokee with 19,000 miles on it and the engine and transmission running gear has never been touched...HEY Consumer Reports, do a real test on the Jeep Latitude again.....its a smooth slick vehicle.. The dash instruments are STAR TREK..need to relearn them.
