Tell me what you don't like about your XK

Specifically things that are "Annoying, Confusing, Frustrating, Unpleasant, Create fear, or are Difficult”, in any area of the vehicle.

Cheers!

The gas mileage, and honestly, that's IT. I LOVE MY XK.

Nav needs more detail, better accuracy, and touch screen. Steering too tight. Needs lighted steering wheel controls.

Obviously, the mileage.

Rear window visibility ... but that can be taken care of with a rear camera.

The fact that there are 16 spark plugs I have to replace when I do a tune up. (which hopefully won't be too soon)

A better Jeep Dealership. (possible more ranting in a later post)

Gas mileage? Please. What are you guys getting, 16mpg with your Hemi's? Lucky bastards But if you wanted half decent gas mileage you wouldn't have gotten a Jeep

The interior door handles need to be moved higher on the door and more forward.

"Unpleasant - Difficult" Rear bed load height, way too high. I say they should have put the spare somewhere else or used a mini spare to get the floor lower.

The driver interior footwell seems cramped. No solid foot rest for my left foot.

Gas mileage is fine for me, I just wish the tank was about 3 gallons larger.

Navigation system could have better controls, but otherwise it directs well.

I took out my third row seats, and can fit a lot more stuff in it, I've been hauling stuff around the last week, and it works well with the seat removed.

Overall though, a very nice vehicle and lots of comments and compliments from friends and strangers. I like it. Fun and interesting forum and jeep community too.

HEMI is silky smooth and powerful. Oh, I agree, the interior door handle is way too low. Other ergonomics are fine.

Oh god a mini spare? NOOOOOO. A full size spare is a nice item, not something to be hated.

Ditto. At 6'1" and with size 13's, my legs feel pretty cramped and my left foot is in the way unless I conciously hold it against the wall.

That's about it. Overall a tremendous vehicle!

I replied to another post similar to this but we all bought a 4700 rectangle, were you expecting good gas milage? ditto on the bigger tank, 3-4 more gallons would be a nice addition, how about 10-20 percent more power on the 6 and 4.7, remove the third seat or offer it as an option and give me more room for my rear passangers.
