Awesome. The Overland is nicer.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

Put a thousand miles on it this weekend heading to the in laws. I love it. My only gripe is that it came with a factory installed CD player which I didn't want. It takes up too much space in the center console. Anyone have experience taking one out?

I disagree! My 2013 Limited has only been in the shop for the scheduled recalls and required maintenance/oil changes. Not everyone has issues.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

If that was jeep saying they never seen that it is BS. My 2015 altitude has same problem that started day after purchase. Been in and out of service since 11-24-14 still no buy back and not fixed. They are looking at wiring harness for bad wire.

what exactly did they determine the problem to be?

I'm having very similar problems like you had with only 2k. My jeep has been at the dealer once already and now a second time (19 days and counting) and still no answer to what is happening with my rig. They're saying its a communication error and they keep getting multiple codes thrown (20-30 at a time).

I have a case open with customer care and the dealer has a star case opened with jeep national as well.

At this point I'm hoping to have it bought back and most likely get into something other than a Jeep. It's a shame because I really liked this jeep a lot too. All this coming from a 2008 WK that I bought brand new. So much for my loyalty to Jeep.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

Glad it got resolved but having problem with a sensor on the chassis that is not supposed to get wet ?

OTOH my '12 has only been to the dealer for oil changes (and two recalls the last time I am not convinced it needed). Did dump the Goodyears for Michelins with 6/32nds left because the TC light was coming on and I could feel slippage in a frog strangler. That cured it.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

I'm not sure if it actually fixed it for good since I got a new rig. But they said it was the front sensor for the tech package that had gotten water in it. They said when they disconnected it the messages stopped. They were shocked. But no one else could figure it out and they had gone up the pyramid at Chrysler where all the big tech brains are supposed to be with no resolution. I had driven the car for 10 days and 500 miles when the message popped up. After 12 days in the shop, the original dealership, not the one that was working on the car agreed to buy it back. This was the day before they supposedly solved the problem. But they went ahead with the deal to buy it back anyway. Awesome resolution and kudos to the dealership for making things right. Good luck. Maybe this will work for you.

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

Congrats on the new ride man. Sounds like you have one of the better Jeep dealers in the country.

Now lets see some pics of the new one!!

Update: My Jeep was at the local dealership for a week and a half without any viable progress. The mechanics and Chrysler were stumped. Everything seemed to be working well with the vehicle but the messages kept flashing. The dealership that I bought the Grand Cherokee from, Roberson Jeep which is 60 miles away, was trying to help and their service manager was great. He kept in direct contact with the local dealership. Wednesday I talked to the sales manager at Roberson Jeep where I had bought the vehicle and told him I was fed up and wanted a new car by Friday since I was supposed head south for the holidays in my new rig. He told me he would get ahold of Chrysler. He called me yesterday and told me Chrysler wouldn't be able to make a decision that quickly but that he would get me a new vehicle and buy back the old one. Of course no one in the state had one with the same options so the best he could was to get an Overland with the technology package which would cost a bit more. They had given me over 5 % off the invoice on the limited and I could still get close to that on the Overland. I just had to pay the difference between the two. We made the deal and I made plans to pick it up at 2 today. At 11:00 today the dealership trying to fix my old car called and said they had finally found the problem and it was ready for me. I told them I had already made a deal to get a new vehicle. I called Roberson and told them that my car might be fixed but I would still like to get the new one since I just didn't feel comfortable with original one. They had no problem with buying that one back and getting me the new one just in time for my week long road trip tomorrow. Awesome!

The local dealer said the issue was that water had gotten into the sensor in the front of the car and sent out the weird messages. Who knows how much of the car was torn apart and put back together before it was finally figured out. I just didn't feel comfortable with a brand new car that had gone through all that. So now I have an awesome 2015 Overland. Same color as the original one.

I have to say that everyone involved was great throughout this frustrating time. I can't say enough good things about Roberson Jeep in Salem, Oregon. Oh yeah! A Chrysler case worker called me yesterday and said they wanted to make sure that everything works out well for me. When I told her that I was getting a new car, she told me she would get me free service credits for the new one and some other goodies. I will post details when I get them.

Great news man. My saga continues with the Uconnect but the motor runs fine. Good Luck with the new ride.

Bought some inexpensive wheels and Blizzaks for the winter. It's all worked out well and I love the GC. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1421390760.519717.jpg

Re: 2015 grand Cherokee Lemon?

2014 Limited
- Purchased Oct 2013
- Numerous visits to dealer in attempt to resolve steering wheel and vehicle vibration
- Wheel bearings, tires, rims, road force balance didn't help
- Repurchased in April 2014

2014 Overland
- Purchased April 2014
- Fine for about 3 months then steering wheel and vehicle vibration started
- 3 visits to dealer for balancing, road force balancing and bearings, some improvement but still exists from time to time
- (Most Recent Issue) Started Dec 2014, start car, shift to Reverse or Drive, car automatically shifts back into Park. Car was gone for 1 week first time before it was "resolved". Come again last week, issue came back again. Car was gone again for another week. Picked it up last night, all seemed well. Started it this morning, issue is back.

These cars are piles of shit. Is my opinion skewed because I got not 1 but 2 bad ones? Absolutely. I traded in a Ford Edge with absolutely no issue other than paint rust. I'm so sick of these damn issues it's not even funny. Nobody and I mean nobody should have to visit a service department 15 times in 1 year, 3 months and 10 days (not that I'm counting).

I can't wait to get Jeep #2 repurchased as well and get away from this nightmare of a manufacture.
