Take her in for an upgrade. There's probably a recall on wives you may not know about.

On a serious note, WKs do have issues, not just electrical ones but mechanical as well. If you do decide to go with the Jeep, be sure to examine the rear hatch for alignment as well as carefully examine the paint.

Re: Possible new Jeep owner worried about realibity

Great idea. Trade her in for a newer model----hopefully one with a mute button!

Re: Possible new Jeep owner worried about realibity

We purchased our JGC Limited in July of this year, already have 3K on it, not a problem and love it. Best car we have had in years. Traded off a 2010 Hyundai Sante Fe with 54K on it, best thing we ever did. Don't worry about the sunroof, they are foolproof now days. You won't regret it. We had a '95 Jeep Cherokee Country we put 245K miles on and no major problems until we got rear ended and totaled. Good luck on your decision.

You guys are messing with fire. I hope your wives don't look over your shoulder when reading this thread. It is funny as heck, but wouldn't want to get caught

Re: Possible new Jeep owner worried about realibity

Don't walk, run away. I have head failure and multiple navigation and unit failures. Today the radio died and the back-up camera is stuck on. First and last Chrysler product. Buy a Honda or Toyota. Not as flashy as the Jeep, but much more reliable.

Yes, I thought our new '07 Accord was reliable until the auto trans bit the dust at just 42K miles. Replaced under warranty thank goodness

Re: Possible new Jeep owner worried about realibity

'14 Limited w/ 5.7 Hemi... 4 months old and +4K miles. Just an occasional slight squeak somewhere towards the back that I don't notice anymore and no other issues... including with the large LCD, sunroof or anything.

We had a '10 top-of-line Acadia prior and this GC and the GC is so much more fun to drive, but the Acadia was a nice highway cruiser. However the GMC started to have all kinds of recalls... some where our vehicle was kept more than a month, and finally an AC issue at 70K miles that would require the dash be removed and $2600 in repairs... It was starting to feel like a money pit so I told the GMC/Jeep dealership to take the Acadia and give me the GC.

No regrets so far.

Honda and Toyota cars are boring so boring I think I would fall asleep driving them.

I think all vehicles have some issues it's just some have more than others.
