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

I am new to this forum and my 2014 overland is 1 week old. After reading several forums, I'm starting to think I made a BAD choice. Does anyone have a GC that they like and have not had so many problems with?

I also have a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited that is awesome, problem free.

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

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

Mine has been fantastic. However, it's an 11 model year. I have had only a few very minor issues, but nothing terrible. A rear door lock actuator and front strut have been the "worst" issues I've had.

I have had mine since May 2011 and the only thing that I've had a problem with was my power window switch went out and was replaced under warranty. Also happen to have the dash peeling issue but a little Gorilla glue has at least somewhat rectified that situation.

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

I have 13k on my 14' which I purchased back in/around April. Only issues I've had was the tire shimmy at ~70 mph. That was corrected by the dealer with new wheels/tires.

Only other issue I have that just cropped up yesterday is attempting to remote start the car it started then immediately shut down. Got in to start it manually and my dashboard didn't come on. After remote starting it again it came back.

Been a great car so far.

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

So far I've only had minor issues with my 14 overland which we took delivery of back in March, so nearly 7 months ownership. We just rolled over 11k miles and the only issues have been the dreaded "see dealer for service" message on the radio which seems to have gone away after the last software update, the raising message staying on longer at random times when the vehicle raises from park mode and there's a TSB for that as well, and an issue with the time on the dash and radio which went away after a restart.

Both my wife and I have been very happy with our purchase and while those bugs were annoying, never did they put us in a situation where the vehicle had to stay at the dealer overnight or needed to be towed. I've seen others with issues much more severe, but we're really the minority of owners when you look at how many post here and how many of these sell month-to-month.

Is your low fuel light on, or are you very close to empty? It wont remote start if it is.

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

p.s. 14,000 miles on my 2014 Overland and no issues to speak of. Tiny rattle in the sunroof, but not bad enough for a trip to the dealer yet.

I think it will, but it will shutoff after a few seconds and should tell you on the dash why it turned off.

It would only be a bad choice if your Jeep had problems, not because somebody else had a problem. Lots of folks were complaining about their '07 Liberties. The only service mine ever had were oil changes.

My '14 has had a few issues, but none that weren't addressed while I had a cup of coffee (or two) at the dealership.

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

Thanks everyone for your replies. I am starting to feel better about my purchase.

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.
