Re: I am Out of Here

Same here.... while my dealership experience hasn't been exactly Acura like, they have fixed everything I have brought them, will give me a loaner if I request it....which is probably more than most people get.
If I had to say the worst thing about the ownership experience is ...it has been back at least six times in the last year for non-maintenance items....It has been a pain, but I think that's the teething of the first year 2014 diesel models. Over I'm still happy with it, happy with the mileage and expect to keep it for many years as long as it performs well....

my 2014 Summit went back about 18 times for non maintenance items the first 2 years. I'm at my 3 year mark now and all is well. I think once the new car build bugs are worked out they are good vehicles. I have not really had anything break at all it was all related to things that weren't right when it rolled off the line, it took a good 1-2 years to work all that out. No major drivability items just things that needed corrected, many software. I will say that if I had the trans issues the v6 people did combined with the problems I had I would have gotten rid of it, that would have been too much. I stuck it out everything got corrected and I have a great vehicle now.

Re: I am Out of Here

I will just say. We went on a long drive this weekend through some twisty roads and it was a blast. Just little shit like we put the A/C on 73 degrees and we didn't have to keep adjusting it up an down all day. Just set it and it does it's damn job. What a concept!!

Re: I am Out of Here

Glad the upgrade is working well for you. Cars are just too expensive to not enjoy owning them. Post up some pics if you get a chance.

Re: I am Out of Here

im reading this and its awesome :].

I mean how can you possibly not be disappointed when u walk in a jeep/chrysler dealership and expect to get the same service as you would when you walk into, lets say just random...... a porsche dealership. One more thing, I would never compare a grand cherokee with a porsche, bmw, vw suv. Not because one is more luxurious than the other or more reliable, but simply because no bmw, vw, prochse, german, asian, italian, even american suv (ford, gm, etc) will ever perform as an suv should perform, like a jeep does when it really matters.

Im trying to be nice and not partial but its hard haha. Just remember, when you get that thing (cuz i cant call it an suv) stuck somehwere, to give one of us a ring and we will pull you out with our crappy Jeeps and youll be on your way.

There's always a bad apple, and u gonna stop eating granny smith apple or whatever's yo favorite because of that one bad apple?

Dont get me wrong, im not forcing Grand cherokees on nobody's throat and i get that bad customer service is a big turn off, but to pretty much state that ALL jeeps and chrysler products "suck ballz"......i think ur wrong there...and veryyyy unlucky at the same time. (hence all the cars that mistreated you in the past)

Re: I am Out of Here

I like Jeeps, but let's be realistic. Jeeps get stuck too. Also they don't hold the patent on making four wheels go round. I got my Rubicon stuck in my yard once in deep snow. Had to pull it out with my John Deere 3720 with its whopping 44hp. Anything can get stuck. Congrats on the Porsche.

Re: I am Out of Here

Buying any car is always a crap shoot. I bought a brand new VW Superbeatle in 71. My neighbor had the identical car, mine was green, his was yellow. I drove 70k miles. Only routine maintenance, tires, battery etc. He ended up with a new engine, new clutch, defective paint all in the first year! And that car was $2,050 out the door. You never know. My LEXUS IS350C got horrible service from JM Lexus, no. one dealer in the country. So far, my '15 High Altitude has only been in for oil change and tire rotation. My dealer gave me a Chrysler 300S as loaner and promises to take care of me in the future. Time will tell but I am optimistic. I'm not expecting the same care as my Infiniti dealer, i.e. loaners, no appt necessary, treated like royalty, etc but so far Schumacher Jeep in Delray Beach seems good. Ask me in a year.

Anything can get stuck of course, jeeps are by no means immune to that, but when you pay a boat load of money over a grand Cherokee and you complain about the jeep after and when the Porsche is only good to go fast from A to B and has barely any off road capabilities it's not a big deal? But ud like to say you have an suv right? U just can't compare the two...each vehicle designed to do different things...and if you ask me, Jeep def hits more check marks in the SUV class than other.

Re: I am Out of Here

A Porsche SUV and yes I did call it an SUV will go anywhere a sane person would take a $100k SUV. Nobody is buying those to go rock crawling in.

Another point well made thanks.
Seems like you would call the Panamera an suv too.

Re: I am Out of Here

I don't know. Pretty impressive.

My jeep was never going to go off road and I doubt the Cayenne will either. Again, all I was saying is I have had my fill with Chrysler and I am done. I hope NONE of you have to go through what we went through. I gave them multiple chances over the years and I kept getting bit. I loved our durango and our van but the rest were crap. I still have the windows stick for the durango because I had it built and my name was on the window sticker.
Good Luck and enjoy your ride. If you are having issues. Document document and document!!

Congrats on the Porsche and good luck.
I believe he also mentioned the dealer sucks.
I wouldn't even think of buying/driving a Jeep if it weren't for the choice of two pretty good dealers within just a couple miles of home and work.

Almost sold my first Jeep when the dealer that had taken care of it sold out and had no choice but to go to one of those "if I can't meet or beat the deal" megadealers. Luckily I moved fairly soon.
