Thumbs up 5000 miles...not one problem.

I figured I would start this thread since most owners don't post about having no problems. You usually just hear about those with problems.
I feel fortunate to have not had any problems at all after reading all the threads here about problems with the Grand Cherokee. Everything works, everything looks good, no squeaks, clunks or rattlles, no lites going on or off that shouldn't be, no transmission problems, no paint defects, rides nice and handles great, all panels, doors, hood, rear hatch and chrome trim line up nice, gets good gas mileage and lots of compliments and the wife loves it. If I could change anything I can only think of one thing, it would be the copper colored trim pieces in the interior. I think they should have went with silver, but even that is not a problem.

This may be the best vehicle we've ever had....so far.

Re: 5000 miles...not one problem.

Do you have any issues with 1 side blowing hot air and the other blowing cold?

Was reading the Aussie thread and a lot of people seem to have that problem.

I'm going down to meet up with a rep from Jeep. If he gives me good numbers, I can't believe it but I might trade in my Tacoma for a JGC......


Going from reliability to a potential train wreck....

I've had no issues with the climate control.
Our other vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Tacoma DC. Had it since 2009, just hit 50,000 miles, haven't had any problems. Love it.

I will do that...I could use some money since I'm laid off right now.

Hope your luck changes with yours.

Re: 5000 miles...not one problem.

Great post. I have been lurking here for about 3 months and am surprised at the problems reported. I have had zero issues. My Overland Summit is the perfect blend of off-road and luxury. Quiet and smooth on the highway, fast around town and great off-road. I added the Volant CAI, billet catch can, Mopar skid plates and the shark fin antenna based on posts on the forum. Excellent info!

Re: 5000 miles...not one problem.

Just so you know, the 2011-2013's don't have anywhere near the problems that the 2014's do.

That is a shame. I hope the bugs get worked out quickly for all the 2014 owners.

Re: 5000 miles...not one problem.

3 years and 20K miles without issues! The UConnect module has stopped working a couple of times and the firmware had to be reset. Other than that no notable mechanical or electrical nor other problems.

Re: 5000 miles...not one problem.

Just under 40,000 miles and no issues (knock on genuine simulated wood). Still tight and rattle free.
