To grand cherokee srt8 owners in Qatar

Hi!

I'm interested in buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee srt8 (2010 model) , but there is some things i wonder about. I hope you could help me guys.

1. Is it a good car? With that I mean is it a problem free car? I'm planning to have it for at least 5 years.

People around me keep telling me to stay away from American cars. According them American cars will not run more than 5 years. Is it true?

2. Hows the service in Qatar?

3. Is the spare parts expensive?

4. How much do you pay for gas each month approx?

Regards

Not from Qatar, but from Saudi Arabia so I will put my two cents down since the conditions are pretty much the same.

I have a '10 SRT8, bought it at the end of 2010 and now have almost 55K kms on it and no big issues Alhumdulillah.

1) Yes, its a great car. Driving is just pure sex. Not anyproblems that I have encountered soo far, just changed the batter, that too under warranty!

2) Can't say, but pretty good in Saudia.


3) Let see, since The stock warranty is 3 years and 60k KM, no spare parts needed, and what I adivse is get extended warranty its cheap and good. PLus you have insurance so no spare parts to worry about ?

4) About that, since I am in KSA and you know how cheap the petrol here is I don't keep a track of it. Just go get a tank ful and smoke it all out lol
I make 400 kms trip oen way on weekends and it goes 400-450 kms on one tank when I average 150-170 km/h and a occasional 250+ run in the same trip.

if I do 120-140 km/h average them qurater of a tank is left !


Guy on a stoplight: Which car is that you are driving?
Me: Wait till the light gets green, you will get to read it on the back.....
Other guy:.............
