Great new JGC review

Just noticed this great review of the Grand Cherokee published today on AutoBlog. Nicely illustrated, too. Enjoy!

Very nice. Too bad there are so many quality control/reliability issues.

Re: Great new JGC review

what the heck are you guys talking about? There appear to be a few and they seem to deluge us with multiple posts not lots and lots or people with problems... After all it is a mass produced product so some should be expected. Mine has been trouble free so far and so have the other people I personally know who have them.

Re: Great new JGC review

Just picked up my new V-8 Overland built in September. I was a little worried as this is my first Jeep and based on some of the posts I have been reading over the months, but my new GC has been great so far. I only have a few hundred miles on her, but no issues with UConnect, tire shimmy or anything. Love driving it...just waiting for snow.

Re: Great new JGC review

the four-wheel-drive system has been improved with new modes

What's this referring to? I know there are different gear ratios.....

That's because most people want to post, but don't want to see what others have already posted. If I'm not mistaken, somebody had posted about this review about an hour before this thread was started.

But, with the scatter gun approach, more people get to see it.

Same here. Picked up mine last Friday and love it. It was built September 3rd.

Re: Great new JGC review

Too bad they did not also test the same vehicle with the V8. That is what I just bought. I suspect the fuel mileage difference between the two engines is small for much typical driving, as the V8 can run as a 4.

Re: Great new JGC review

Too bad you can't stop cancer from metastasizing.

Glad to see yet another reputable group finding the GC exceeds expectations. Can't wait to get mine so I can stop watching the forum religiously
