Re: 2014 build quality

OP, sorry to hear of the issues… My 2014 Limited has been perfect so far (built December 2013).

Re: 2014 build quality

For the price of my SRT I am not in love with the build quality, mostly or the interior. Coming from all European cars in the past it's not quite up to par, and there are rattles etc, but I've had euro cars with the same. Regardless I absolutely love my SRT and have zero regrets with it! Just hope it stays reliable, only at 1500 miles currently and about to go do the first oil change now

Re: 2014 build quality

I'm on the brink of buying a 2014 JGC 4x4 Overland or Summit but I'm little on the fence with concerns over reliability issues. Should I pull the trigger & get one ?

What do ya'll think the consensus for most owners ?

Re: 2014 build quality

Cnatra,

I'd love to give you a ringing endorsement of my decision to get the JGC but I can't. Beyond the paint and fit and finish issues on mine, my JGC has been in the shop since May 14 - more than two weeks - awaiting a fix for a failed CV boot. All within the first month of ownership. Not acceptable in my book after paying $45k for a brand new truck.

Apart from the part failure, which is understandable and happens, the real issue is Jeep's customer service, which has been very disappointing to say the least.

Do yourself a favor - unless you are truly going to take your vehicle off road, get something else. Jeep has some production/QC issues they need to figure out. The something else may not be as capable, but how capable is a vehicle when it can't stay on the road?

so +1 no or yes ?


We've been impressed on a few test drives (no diesel yet) but all the issues on forums like this have given me pause , especially for a $50k vehicle .

Thanks

Re: 2014 build quality

+1 agreeing with major2000. Chrysler needs to improve it's QC and customer service, until then I wouldn't recommend the vehicle.

Re: 2014 build quality

'14 Overland, V6. Fit and finish is exemplary. It needed an alignment and wheel balance, but no issues since. May '13 build. Love it.

+1. Problem is, it will never happen. Their too concerned with building and shoving these things out the door as fast as possible.

Re: 2014 build quality

Update: due to all the recurring issues, my dealer worked through their Chrysler rep and bought my Jeep back. We are now waiting on an April build upgraded with the Hemi, minor additional cost to us.

Kudos to my dealership, assuming everything with the new ride pans out.

Re: 2014 build quality

I have been a lurker for 2+ years and all these recent issues I have been reading about has me considering a 2015 4runner. Yes, the interior, fuel economy, technology package seems inferior on the 4 runner, but damnit I just don't read about these same types of problems. Chrysler needs to get its $hit together soon. My 2001 Stratus is on life support.
