Your Virginia Jeep Dealer presents Motor Trend’s Review of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler

Crossing the Rubicon: Iconic Vehicle takes on an Iconic Trail

2012 jeep wrangler sahara and 2012 jeep wrangler rubicon

Just out for a drive....

What is the best way to test an off-roading machine?  The Rubicon Trail located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California.  This is where Motor Trend decided to test the 2012 Jeep Wrangler.  Despite difficult terrain, steep upgrades,  and deep water, the new Jeep was able to conquer the trail.  Allyson Harwood reports from Motor Trend:

 You can’t tell by looking at it, but the Jeep Wrangler has undergone a transformation. The iconic shape remains — seven-slot grille, round headlights, short wheelbase, soft or hard top — but Jeep has made huge improvements to the off-roader for 2012. Jeep invited us to drive the 2012 Wrangler on the Rubicon, one of the hardest 4×4 trails around, used almost exclusively by modified vehicles. We also got to drive on the two-lane asphalt roads that wind around Lake Tahoe.

2012 Jeep wrangler sahara and 2012 jeep wrangler rubiconConsider this the second part of a major overhaul to the Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited. Part one happened for the 2011 model year, when the JK (the current generation’s code name) received a new interior, plus, on the Sahara, a body-color hard top and fender flares. The hard top is of the same composite material as it was before, but what sounds like a minor change actually has a major effect on the Wrangler’s appearance. In addition, the rear windows are larger as of 2011, improving visibility. For 2012, the body-color hard top and fender flares are optional on the Rubicon, too.

Inside, welcome 2011 revisions include the use of higher-quality materials; the redesigned center stack; an all-new instrument panel; and strategically applied sound insulation that makes this the quietest Wrangler ever. Some creature comforts never seen here before — seat heaters, power heated mirrors, and redundant steering wheel controls — make this the most refined Wrangler cabin ever.

Take your new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Camping this fall with New Mopar Camping Accessories

It’s October, and you know what that means: a few weeks of beautiful fall weather for…..camping in Virginia!

The air is finally starting to cool off from a very strange-weathered summer, and the lakes are a little less packed now that Labor Day has come and gone. Instead of trying to fit everything into your fuel-economy compact, why not pile on the accessories for the Jeep Wrangler that’s been eagerly anticipating this time of year? That four-wheel drive is good for something other than off-roading, you know.

In addition to the camper-trailer made especially for Jeeps, Mopar is now offering over 250 accessories for the 2012 Jeep. Among the most popular is the new ten x ten ft tent, which attaches to the rear door of the Jeep. It has an additional six x six ft screen room, doubling the sleeping space without taking up a lot of interior space.  The tent connects to the vehicle by attaching around the rear door, creating space for sleeping.

New Jeep Mopar Tent

Another accessory that is drawing attention is the Uconnect Web.  A 3G Broadband wireless system installed within the Jeep allows each passenger to individually access the internet, giving everyone a chance to update their friends on how many bears have been spotted so far.

Uconnect Web allows access to social media, trail maps, e-mail, online games, music and more.

In partnership with Mopar, Thule, the leading US manufacturer of car rack systems, has set the standard for performance and ease of use in designing a Roadway Hitch Mount Bike Carrier for Jeep. The improved swing away design allows for rapid rear vehicle access. The Stinger-Swinger hitch converts quickly from 2″” to 1-1/4″” out of the box and the Hitch-Switch quick release lever allows for fast storage of bike carrier arms. Nothing could be easier when wanting to get your bike off your Jeep in a hurry, and on the trail.

My Review of Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Fredericksburg:
Went to Safford of Fredericksburg to have some service on my 2008 Town & Country and to check out the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee’s. We talked with Mark Miles in the service area and he personally walked us out to meet Chris Glitzos to talk about our options/needs. Best experience we ever had in looking for and buying a new vehicle. Chris understood our situation and allowed us plenty of time to test drive several vehicles and there was no pressure or sterotypical sales lines or hard sale pressure. The dealer was responsive to our negotiations on both the trade in and sales price. We are very happy with the vehicle and the experience. Highly recommended are both Chris Glitzos in Sales and Mark Miles in Service.

My Review of Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Fredericksburg:
Started going to Safford after the Jeep dealer closed. Was skeptical at first but the service department has been great. I don’t feel like I am being charged for extra parts that may or may not be needed. My car needed a new radiator but the water pump and thermostat were both ok. Feel like another dealer would have wanted to put on a new water pump, etc. A++++++++

Regular oil changes are the best way to prevent costly maintenance issues further down the road. While there is no exact science to recommend how frequently oil changes should happen, the general consensus is every 3 months or every 3,000 miles. Owner’s manuals vary greatly in terms of suggested oil change frequency, from every 2,000 miles to every 10,000 miles.

In determining when to schedule your next oil change in Virginia, Safford Jeep suggests taking into consideration a few factors: how you drive, the condition and age of the engine, the external environment in which you drive, and the amount of stop-and-go versus highway driving. And, if you’re still unsure of when is best, feel free to ask an expert at your Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge Dealer in Fredericksburg.

What we do know is that regularly changing your oil is crucial for vehicle health. Due to the high operating temperatures of the engines, oil undergoes thermal breakdowns, becoming less effective as a lubricant. When the oil stops lubricating, parts of the engine rub together and wear each other out, leading to costly repairs and replacements.
