2012 JKU disappoints!

Man I'm so depressed. I waited and waited for my new 2012 JKU. I hit refresh 25,678 times on the insight status site. I've read through 10,000+ posts in a single 2012 JK thread. I even sold arguably the 2nd best off-road vehicle of all time (a Lexus RX330) to pay for my new JKU.

Here's what I've found...

The engine blew up
My fenders were mismatched
When making love in the front seat I accidentally engaged the auto-stick
I didn't get sub 6 second 0-60 times
I'm getting worse gas mileage than a 3.8L
Nobody waves
I can't mod it
It doesn't really go into 4wd (that's just a dummy shifter)
It has non-offroad sensors that won't let you leave the paved road
Non-2012 owners hate me
It doesn't leak

As you can tell I'm pissed. As soon as Lexus puts a small diesel in the RX330 I'm going back.

Have a good long weekend everyone

Yea, I know how you feel. Don't get too depressed driving that 2012 hulk of yours this weekend. Maybe another poor 2012er will wave.

It's all in good fun. I'm still in the "I'm only driving it on sunny days phase". I haven't had a new car in 11 years so I am babying it.

At some point one of my kids will scrape their bike or toys up against it and then I'll get it dirty

As a new member that's cruising the forum topics and then landing here, I really must say, "Well played!"

-from like, the ONLY guy happy with his new Jeep apparently.

EDIT:
I HAD to get mine dirty in the first few days.
It just felt like the right thing to do.
nothing major, but enough for a first time run.
-of course I have to re-black my mud stained fenders and bumpers, but there's no doubt that she's gotten her first run in already.

I definitely agree with the arguably part! The mall parking lot is "off" road, but it's not what we typically refer to.

"Off Topic" is more for shits and giggles, not the technical forums.
