Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Well, SM is not shying away from the critics which is heartening...

Quality problems must be fixed, Fiat Chrysler CEO says

... and I also feel very pleased about the appointment of the new CEO and his background.

I would like to think we have potentially turned a corner with regards to the Jeep brand in this country. As one of my fellow countrywoman once said:

'It won't happen overnight, but it will happen'.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Yes, we are having that discussion over here:
Jeep reliability dead last in Consumer Reports - Page 6 - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum

There isn't a lot of detail about the issues consumer reports found in the survey. Other than infotainment glitches and the Diesel fuel system. I think they may be referring to DEF injection, which Oz cars don't have.
