We've updated our reliability stats for the Cherokee to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago.
Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2016 Cherokee: 27, moderate, small sample size
2015 Cherokee: 27, moderate
2014 Cherokee: 44, moderate
We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:
2015 Cherokee: 78, < 1
2014 Cherokee: 66, < 1
We'll have further updates in November and next February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
