And from what I understand is that the Honda CR-V is getting the ZF 9 speed.
Should be very interesting to say the least.

That can happen to anyone or to any vehicle. Stop being fanboys and realize he made the choice that was best for him.
Damn Straight

Had the same thing happen to me with a new 1996 Chevy Tahoe....this was my dream vehicle...but after 4 transmissions (Chevy replaced the first one under warranty...but gave me the FU after the 12/36,000 warranty expired), two fuel pumps, and the windshield wipers giving out right in the middle of a huge rainstorm doing 80 mph on 95 south ..I was forced back to reality that this was a deadly vehicle.

Life is too short to put up with deadly dangerous cars.

Unfortunately, we all must deal with deadly Takata airbags.

Mark my words...this is just the beginning of a HUGE recall
spanning MILLIONS of cars...not just in the USA but around the world

NHTSA.gov is useless as tits on a warthog..they have no subpoena authority, therefore they can only ask nicely for car companies to give them injury/death information.

I commend the OP for realizing the lemon before it made him into lemonade

This being the internet, how do we know that the picture and name you post is really you?

I don't doubt it, based on 'getting to know you' through through your posts. But the internet would die if everybody had to identify themselves to to world.

Re: End of the Road for 2015 Cherokee Limited

Well for what it's worth, my buddy has been driving a Subaru Forester for business and after way too many miles on it, he bought a used CRV & he loves it. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

The Honda CRV for 2015 went to a Continously Variable Transmission CVT for short.

I just had to respond to a few things in this thread, and this is one of them. Just because there is demand for it doesn't mean people are pleased with it. They are two separate things. And while I don't trust CR as far as I can toss the magazine into the recycle bin, there is one statistic that I always hold firm to in their magazine -- it's the one where buyers tell the mag how likely they are to buy the SAME vehicle again.

In the case of the horribly reviewed Wrangler, it hovers around 75%, which is a solid number.

As for the Cherokee, I only personally know two people who have them and one has had her transmission replaced, and the other person's is still in the shop with a "service transmission" issue. Two out of two that I personally know.

Thanks to some of the folks in this forum, I informed friend #1 that hopefully now that her transmission was replaced, she would be good to go. At least that's what it seems like -- that those who actually just have the whole thing replaced are fine afterward. I'm hoping friend #2 has the same outcome once Chrysler thinks it over.

To the OP, if he's still around, guys here like bill_de might remember I went through the wringer with my '14 Grand Cherokee, and like the OP my family replaced it with a CR-V (mine was made in Ontario for some reason, not Ohio). 18,000 miles and the only issue so far was a visor clip that fell off.

It gets us everywhere we want to go without any drama, and that sure is a good feeling when taking a long trip. It also has more cargo space than our Grand Cherokee did which I find fascinating since the it looks so much smaller.

However, my wife and I can't wait until the 20 months left of lease payments is up and we can try again with a new Grand Cherokee. We have even really considered just buying and selling the damn thing. I don't know why I dislike it so much. It really has done nothing but be a wonderful automobile. It has gotten us through snowstorms without drama, carried our bikes and groceries, and done everything we could want.

But we still dream about our bought-back Jeep.

The raw anguish and frustration of those horrible months with the GC have somehow mostly been washed away with time. 20 months to go. I hope Jeep doesn't let us down this time.

I just wish there was some way we could get the awesome driving experience of the Jeep with the "I'll just keep going and going and going with no issues whatsoever" attitude of the Honda. Come on, Jeep. You can do it.

And a last point to this long-winded entry. Why is it anyone makes a legitimate complaint about their Jeep, people call it out like it can't be true, or the person is making it up or exaggerating, or (wow) even claim they're hiding under a fake name? Huh?

Most of us paid $30-40K for their Jeeps. You think we're going to spend that kind of money on a vehicle we don't want or like?

Most of the folks who I have "met" here are truly awesome. I just don't get the other 1-2%.

Re: End of the Road for 2015 Cherokee Limited

I hope the original poster has better luck with his new purchase. It's too bad the dealership/Chrysler couldn't fix the issues because I think the Cherokee is a very nice vehicle in its class but life is too short to deal with a brand new vehicle with that many issues.

Saw this and had to put my 02 cents in.
Op state's that he frequently goes to many forums...if this is true, I have to wonder why he went cr v...if you go to any cr v forum, or Google 2015 cr v problems.
I'm in the market for a small suv...I liked the crv until i read info on the forums.
Uncontrollable shaking at idle is the main issue. Honda has no known fix.
Honda also recently fired all the top brass for cutting corners.
Not hear to bash honda..if they get back to what they used to be...i would buy one
