Have two WK 2s 2012 diesel Overland also now 2015 SRT ,plus one 2010 WH diesel, all diesels rated 3.5 ton for towing on paper,not that you should tow 3.5 tons.Thats another story for all so called 3.5 rated vehicles. The 5 speed auto is in two of the vehicles ,had no problems both done around 180000ks with NO problems.SRT as do 2013 WKs on have the 8 speed ZF box just about bullet proof.I would make sure the vehicle has up to date service records.Especially auto,tc case,diffs etc.Most people who bag Jeeps have never owned one.Have a look how many WK2s tow caravans now,! Best bang for your buck in the market.Comfort,fuel economy,power.Hi Dave, our daughter is looking at a 2011 diesel Jeep, Grand Cherokee Laredo with 134000 on it. It seems it is the same model as yours but I am not sure whether to ask your opinion as I am pretty sure I know it, but what is the tow capacity? The seller says it is 3.5 tonne but the specs say 2.268 tonne. They also say it is a 5 speed auto, is this right? I have arranged to look at it Thursday morning but I am skeptical. There does not seem to be a happy medium, either like you and a few other forum members love them or people talk about all the problems they have. I guess I could spend the dollars for an RACQ inspection but even they are not foolproof. I guess I’ll check it out and form my own option.
