Re: Help me out, Does anyone have a relatively trouble free Grand Cherokee

3500 miles 2014. Been to dealer once to get Transmission Firmware update.

Updated Radio myself.

I have had a Service Throttle Twice on Evic and the bowed Power Liftgate handle.

Both those need to be addressed but I'm in no rush. Waiting to see if my Jeep is included in the Recall so I can get everything resolved in one trip.

Keep in mind there are TONS of sensors and gadgets in this Jeep that were not in past generations. So we have a wealth of new information the system collects to stay on top of things.

Like my Service Throttle Message. On my old cars maybe it would have quietly just run until it failed at 40K miles. Instead, it's warning me it's not running 100% efficient. I would not call that a "Problem". Or it could be a bad sensor that monitors that it is working.

So part of it is calibrating yourself to this new system and I'm sure Jeep is going through some teething pains as well.

Nope, 3/4 full. It's not the first time the remote start wasn't successful. Just the first time that my dash disappeared after an unsuccessful start. No rhyme or reason that I can tell so far. It's done it at home after sitting for the night and it's done it when the engine was still warm.

Any chance you had the spare key in the car or a door open. The remote start doesn't work under these situations.

Nope, same way I remote start it every time. Thing is it will begin start, engine will fire then quit like it ran out of fuel.

The last time it happened was the third or fourth time its happening since I've had it.

Re: Help me out, Does anyone have a relatively trouble free Grand Cherokee

I have had no problems with my '14 Limited (4 months old).

I felt the same way after first coming to Jeep Garage.

I think reading forums can give you a bad impression of issues in a vehicle as problems become amplified when you see these huge threads about an issue that only effects a minority of people.
You have to put it in perspective that in September alone around 14,000 Grand Cherokee's rolled off dealers lot (I think I remember reading this...), there are a large number of those people who experience little-to-no issues.

Now, I do not mean to be harsh on forums (or in-particular Jeep Garage, as I think this problem plagues reading forums on any car). I think that forums are a great resource (people sharing their fixes / ideas / piecing together the puzzle), and I have to imagine that some of the in-sight of the members trickles up to the car manufacture and helps create permanent fixes for the car (after-all, we are the day-to-day users of their product).

The more I have spent time on the forums here (lurking), I've come to have the opposite reaction: I no longer think I bought a bad car; nay, I am more confident than ever that I bought the best car out there.
There is a fantastic user-group to help troubleshoot your problems and get you back on the road. You are not seeing post after post saying "it's broken", but rather a living-breathing-changing-evolving thread where problems are getting fix.

Enjoy your new Overland! I know you will love it!

PS: Welcome to Jeep Garage!

Please help me out. Is there anyone out there that loves their Grand Cherokee?
Yes.

You're welcome.

Are you actually HAVING problems, or are you just too easily frightened?

Are you on good terms with the service manager and writers at your servicing dealer?

I have nearly 15,000 miles on my 2014 Overland and no major problems. Yelp! never seems to work, but that's the worst of it and no big deal.

No trips back to the dealer since delivery at the end of April. I will take it back soon for the transmission firmware update, but I honestly can't complain at all about the way the tranny runs now.

Funny, you just mentioned the one thing I DON'T like about the dealership.
Lamest damn coffee in the west. Tastes like something a tea drinker would brew.

While I realize I can't judge my vehicle on other's experiences, I am hopeful that ours won't be that troublesome. We've been lucky overall with all our vehicles.
Enjoy!

Stay away from EMP zones

Stay away from deep salt water

And don't feed it after midnight....

Almost 4k on my Overland and other than the auto on vented seat option not working properly, no other problems to report. Enjoy your new Jeep!
