2012 Jeep purchase

Hi

My name is Helen and we are in Australia and looking to buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 3 Litre v6 diesel to tow my 3 horse float (trailer). Can you tell me if there have been any problems with the vehicles that I should be aware of prior to purchasing one? We are particularly keen on the power and torque of the Jeep and its towing capacity. It is great that it is being built in America and looks like great value for money and has great fuel economy. Just for your information they retail from $55,000 in Australia.

Re: 2012 Jeep purchase

Hey Helen!

I have a 2012 V8 and so far I have had no issues (purchased 8 months ago). My boss also owns a 2011 V8 and no issues there either. These cars are very reliable! If you have any particular questions let me know!

Thanks Matthew, that is encouraging news. We are particularly keen on the V6 diesel so will be interested to learn more about them. Recently visited America and loved Colarado...

Re: 2012 Jeep purchase

Hi Helen, I brought a 2012 JGC diesel and tow a 2.4 ton van, power unbelievable economy fantastic averages 14kpl towing and 8.6kpl without the rig on the back. The one problem I had was a fuel line coming away in the tank that was a quick fix by the Jeep dealer also with the warranty from Jeep Assist is very good as they respond quickly in recovering the car if a breakdown by chance does happen.

Re: 2012 Jeep purchase

Thankyou Dasher,

I am pleased to hear that you are happy with your 2012 JGC. It is reassuring to know that there is reliable service if something unforeseen should happen. I look forward to hearing more about the Jeep and in particular its towing performance.

Regards, Helen
