Gday from Perth! Would have bought a 2014 GC accept...

The 2014 GC ticks all my boxes. Looks stunning with the capabilities on paper to boot. For me-a 95% suburban driver with maybe 2-3 times off road in sand etc. a year. All reviews Ive read give it major thumbs up-the sales apparantly support that too.

I'm not getting it or any other Jeep ever because the posts Ive read about crap reliability, utterly appalling customer service and the like. Hoses falling off, electrical issues the day after delivery, service centres who could not give a sh1t. What the hell is this crap? The reports from so many owners (same from other Jeep owners too-Compass etc) have taken this vehicle well and truely off the list.

Same for the new Cherokee which I WAS looking forward to seeing. Not any more.

Sorry you let them scare you off Dadonk, I love mine and so far it has only had a few little things that the dealer has sorted straight away, in the end we all make our choices, good luck with yours

Cheers Tim - what dealer? I live around the corner from Vic Park. Doesn't mean Im gonna change my mind! Just curious. Also how long have you had it for and which model exactly?
Does it feel like the 50k car you paid for?
Cheers

Hi Dadonk
I went through a company called private fleet and they put it out for tender, Wanneroo jeep came back with the lowest quote, so far I am very happy with them and yes I am very happy with what I got for my money, like I said there was a problem with the climate control and my voice recognition needed a new mike, but minor stuff compared with the ride, the power and economy of the CRD still amazes me, I have had it since August , covered 4000ks, it has done all I wanted on and off road, I do need to get some better tyres as the stock kumho are average, but like I said I love driving it.

They are selling a lot of these cars, it seems to me it is only a small percentage of cars that are having problems. Before I had my landcruiser I was looking at the Pathfinder. The complaints about that car and service were far worse than what I've read about the minor issues in the GC. There were problems with V8 Diesel in the LC200 for a while too.
