Re: Guy has a lemon Jeep Grand Cherokee, makes a video about it

Note to self, don't buy a Chrysler product in Australia (no lemon laws like in the U.S.). Probably just a loose ground wire... LOL.

My seven Jeeps have all been good (family has owned at lease a dozen Jeeps without complaint), but I can certainly understand the frustrations.

Re: Guy has a lemon Jeep Grand Cherokee, makes a video about it

There are consumer protection laws, they are different to the lemon laws in the US, but they do allow for buy backs if the product doesn't live up to reasonable expectations.

I don't think his car is a lemon, there were a few issues reported, the wheel alignment issue, there is a TSB for that. A burning smell, which I think may either be the regen running, or the known diesel odour issue, there is a tsb for that. And the 3 limp modes are likely the failed regen issue that was fixed in december last year.

I think sometimes people's expectations are a bit too high, a few problem like this can happen, and can be fixed, but that doesn't mean you should automatically get a refund. The other thing is that $60k for this car in Oz is quite cheap, and equivalent spec Merc is over $100k, same with the BMW, touareg, Discovery, etc. So this car in Oz is a poor mans euro SUV with pretty good performance and tech. From my point of view, I'm willing to put up with a few things needing to be fixed once in a while and lower build quality for a big discount off a similar euro.
