      I own a 2016 GC SRT. I love the package and the bang for the buck you get at this price point. I drive mine in mix driving daily. My problem with the SRT is the brake dust front and rear. I just recently went over 20,000 miles and it needs front pads and rotors. The cost $1455. This concerns me. The dealer has the rotors in stock but the pads won’t be in stock until the end of November nationwide. Shocking. FIAT-Chrysler unacceptable!

      For what your getting this jeep is well priced. This competes with the BMW x5m and such for almost 40k less. Can't see how you think this is overpriced.
