Consumer Reports

Merry Xmas GC owners, we didn't make the CR list of worse values, but two other Jeeps did. I really hate CRs black and white evaluations. There's much more to buying a car.

Jeep tops 'Consumer Reports' list of worst car values

And that's why even CR does various types of reports. This one concentrates on value. Others focus on initial quality, reliability, customer satisfaction, etc.

I'm not endorsing CR. The only time I read them is when somebody here links to something ... like you did.


Merry Christmas.

Re: Consumer Reports

I subscribe to CR and use them as a guide for a lot of major purchases. But obviously I did not pay attention to their sour attitude about Jeep products when I bought my 2014 JGC Limited. I was going more on the stellar experience I had in 15 years ownership of my previous GC. That and Lifetime Max Care Service Plan.

IMO they tend to really favor Japanese cars.

You got that right...like dealer and customer service...both sorely lacking at Chrysler/Jeep.

Completely off topic, but you may not have to subscribe to consumer reports. Most libraries will give you complete digital access through their online portals. Just go to your library website, click their list of magazines and journal articles. Enter your library card and voila, full access.

For some, I suppose. My dealer has been great from purchase on. Granted, I only see them for alignments or warranty.

Which is why I trust them about as much as campaigning politicians. They are not exactly the most unbiased OPINION. I get my info the old fashioned way even though I'm in my 30's - I actually talk to people that own what I am looking for.
