Grand Cherokee Not Recommended...

Yesterday I received a new Consumer Reports magazine. They dropped the GC from their recommended status due to a significant drop in reliability. This appears to be solely based on an unspecified number of responses from owners.
It is based on one model year of responses but they don't seem to clarify which year.
I don't put a lot of stock into everything CR does or writes or their conclusions but the chart they have in the magazine shows a drastic drop in reliability.

Old news. There is already a long thread on the subject. You might want to glance at it.

You're five days late, and a few dollars short.

Re: Grand Cherokee Not Recommended...

I was born late, and I'm not short.





May or may not have been born late, but lets not let facts stand in the way of a piss poor joke.
