Yeah.... NoVa.... Northern Virginia, or the old Chevy, or Spanish for "it doesn't go."

Glad it's not the latter.

Picked mine up on the 10th. Latitude 4X4 2.4. Bought it from the dealership off of Route 1 as well. Nice to see some locals on here.

I have been pretty happy with that dealer on RT#1 in Woodbridge. Got the "big" service package. Will be trying it soon. (I am going to do a 1.2 K oil change even though not specified). Always believed that was best for engine break in. TH did GREAT in the last snow. 16" and on the road before the plows. Never an issue. Love my remote start as well. thanks rch

I asked Todd (Service Manager at Lustine) whether or not I should listen to their mailings (I've received 2 of them so far) or the TH's oil indicator. He said listen to the indicator. So at 5600 miles I'm still on the same oil, which with the exception that they didn't top it off when I took delivery is actually still in decent shape. RHouser planning on taking the TH out this spring?

mmooretrailhaw, you bet. My problem is that SWIMBO has primary custody of the TH and I have my 96 GC and my F-350 diesel. I did "snatch" the TH on the morning after the snow and hit the roads and a school parking lot prior to the plow. About 15 inches of snow on the ground and the TH didn't even flinch. Claimed I was "testing the roads" before she took of for the grandkids.

thanks rch

I'm considering purchasing through Ourisman. Is this the dealership on RT 1 I see being referenced?

Anyone have any dealings in the past?

I purchased my Trailhawk from Ourisman...right next to the beltway. I rode in with my 2013 JKUR and two hours later was rolling across the WW Bridge heading back to southern MD. I was very happy with the whole experience at Ourisman.

treggit, Would you mind giving us a quick initial comparison of the two vehicles (2013 JKUR and TH)?

Road manners, comfort, control, any offroad experience, ground clearance and approach angle (those have really been my sticking points), those kinds of things.

They are both Jeep. JK was unlimited (4 door) Rubicon with 4" lift and 35's. A box on wheels. I enjoyed it for the 15 months I had it. The Trailhawk is really nice. I traded in a 2011 VW Tiguan 4 motion that was lowered to get the JK. The Trailhawk is the best of both worlds. Handles very well yet still has a little altitude and is 4 wheel drive to boot. I now have 265/65R 17 Dick Cepek Trail Country tires on it and yes they fit. Tight...but they do fit. The Trailhawk is loaded so I have all the luxury I need and 22 mpg combined from southern Md. to D.C. Hope this helps.

Well-put treggit. The Trailhawk has a "little attitude" and a lot of comfort. When SWIMBO is not with me and the roads are clear, I find the "sport mode" to be kind of a kick with a little "heavy foot", but, remember that safe is always better. Waiting for spring to find some more dirt, but, the snow was fun. I want to "lock her up and see what she will really do". Now that is from a 63 y/o when mama is NOT on board. :-)

Van Blank: Route 1 dealer is Lustine Jeep etc. I am not an advocate for any particular dealership, only for my Trailhawk. The Route 1 dealership helped me discover that the Trailhawk would suit me and my wife and then helped me lock it in. I felt they went out of their way for me.
Just my 2 cents.
