Re: Cv boot failure for 2014 jeep grand cherokee

I just sent my new Grand Cherokee into the shop. Less than 200 miles and the CV boot Failed! Its now in the shop over memorial day weekend. UGH! I believe it was built in March 2014. Shame!

Re: Cv boot failure for 2014 jeep grand cherokee

I'd like to hope it was resolved at the production line by then. I have a build date of May 12th, so fingers crossed it was resolved by that production date...

Re: Cv boot failure for 2014 jeep grand cherokee

So what is the final verdict on why the CV boots are failing?

1) Split boot

2) Inferior bands

3) Poor design

4) Improper assembly at plant



I remember reading here that PhillyAnt (?) was offered a free extended warranty for his troubles. My feelings are EVERYONE that experienced major problems like this should be offered free extended warranties from Chrysler.

A poor shifting transmission (amongst other issues) is what made me trade in my early build 2014 Limited for my current later build 2014 Overland. I figure I lost about $5,000 on that deal.

All I can say is FU Chrysler/Jeep for releasing such poorly assembled & tested vehicles, and I hope you get hit up for major recalls like GM is going through right now...because IMO you're bottom of the barrel right there with them when it comes to quality.

Re: Cv boot failure for 2014 jeep grand cherokee

I think you're outta the woods with that date. Seems like the date range is 3/14 to 4/20/14.

This is nothing new of course. Jeep has been dead last in reliability for many years.

Re: Cv boot failure for 2014 jeep grand cherokee

I read somewhere that since there GM bailout, more GM cars have been recalled than have been built. It's a vehicle - very complex these days - and not always perfect. My 2005 GC was perfect for 6 years until I sold it, my 2011 was perfect except for a bottom seat cover that was promptly replaced (a minor issue), and so far my 2014 is absolutely great once the CV boot clamp issue was fixed.

Jeep needs to tighten up some more on their quality control but I am very happy with my GC and would recommend one to just about anyone.
