Jeep Cherokee reliability - better info

I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that made the differences between cars clearer. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.

We've had excellent participation by Grand Cherokee and Wrangler owners, and I'd similarly like to provide solid stats for the new Cherokee. Just a matter of getting enough owners involved.

Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, following the end of each quarter.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the Cherokee, for free. I'll share results for the Cherokee in this thread after each update.

A dozen 2014s signed up so far. A good start, but more will be needed to provide full stats.

To help make this happen, click the link in the OP.

Re: Jeep Cherokee reliability - better info

I would recommend this to everyone. I have been on the forums since 2007. My Mustangs were on it , as is my SHO and the '13 GC which I am trading on a TH tomorrow. Great information on all the makes involved.

Re: Jeep Cherokee reliability - better info

Thanks, SDJeep!

We have an initial reliability stats for the Cherokee based on owner experiences through March 31, 2014.

The epair frequency, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Cherokee: 20, low, small sample size

We'll have further updates in August and in November. The more owners participate, the precise these will be.

What sort of problems? Were you already having them when you joined, and have you been reporting them?

Re: Jeep Cherokee reliability - better info

We've updated our reliability stats for the Cherokee to include owner experiences through June 30, 2014 (making them about 14 months ahead of some others).

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Cherokee: 16, low

This is much better than the related Dodge Dart.

Next updates in November and in February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

Re: Jeep Cherokee reliability - better info

We'll have another update soon, and the stat will be creeping up. But it will remain much better than the Cherokee's dreadful score in CR's latest update. This might be because we measure different things. Our scores only include problems fixed with something other than a software update, and many of the problems reported to CR could be software-related.

Looking forward, we could especially use more participants with 2015s. Many on this board yet?

More 2014s would also be very good to have.

I picked up my 2015 TH on the 13th of this month, so I'll join up to add my input. For what it's worth, I didn't even have my car for 24h before it went back to the dealership with an instrument panel failure...
