2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Almost Perfect
May 30, 2012
I've been living in our long-term 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Since last Thursday afternoon I've driven the Jeep 800 miles including round trips north to Bakersfield, Santa Barbara and a couple of runs down to Anaheim.
And I'm driving it again tonight. It's that good. This is without a doubt one of the top five American cars you can buy.
But it isn't perfect. I'd like three things about the Jeep to be bit different.
1) I'd like its suspension to be tuned ten percent softer.
2) I'd like its steering to be ten percent less heavy.
3) I'd like its seat foam to be ten percent more cushy.
Yes, I'm getting old. And I'd like the Jeep that much more if it supplied a little more comfort, even if it meant sacrificing its ultimate handling numbers a bit.;
