So why all these replies from members who have had problems...................

Having said that, other then a few software updates for the transmission and radio, it's been great. It's just this darn annoying shimmy.

I've never had zero issues with anything...
Some folks have had problems of the type that would tempt me to drive the vehicle onto the dealers showroom floor thru the walls and leave it dripping there in a pool of fluids.

Others have had issues that are of, In My Non Humble Opinion, only big deals to drama queens.

By the way it's a 2013 Laredo X and only has 12,000 miles but so far so good.

I guess I would rather have a vehicle with features that have a few bugs that eventually get patched vs. a vehicle that lacks all those features. If you don't have something then it can't break; incidentally, this seems like an excellent subject for Zen meditation.

YMMV.

Both 2011 and 2014 were/are great and really enjoyed/enjoying. I've had 7 Jeeps (6 GC's) so I must be a happy customer.

My Jeep Liberty was generally ok until around 120k miles when it basically fell apart, aside from the window regulator issues. The WK2 is in the middle - a dead water pump, some minor rattles I still need to get fixed, some recalls. But I only have ~37k miles on it so not really a great result so far. If I end up buying another JGC again I basically will expect at least some Gremlins to deal with.

Btw, I've had no issues at all.....1 year 3 months and 9000 smiles.

Ever had to top off your tire pressure on your "zero issue" Jeep? What, do you mean to tell me you're making excuses for tires that don't hold pressure perfectly and permanently?

Not every issue is considered to be equally weighty by each owner. Given that you have had your JGC for this long it's obvious that yours is/has been subject to several TSBs (and possibly a recall). Perhaps said TSBs fix issues you don't perceive, but if someone else owned your vehicle they may well be quite annoyed by these same issues you disregard.

Without qualifying a question like the OP's, it's effectively semantically void.

Re: Issue free

Jan 14 build, CRD - No problems so far... except the TC warning light came on for a day, then fixed itself, is that a problem?

Anyway, it seems some of the early MY14s had more problems than the previous years, but as far as I can tell, this has been improved now. Still I wouldn't be buying a Jeep expecting zero problems. I also wouldn't buy a Golf expecting zero problems.....

I see that's all you seem to have in terms of a rejoinder. That's telling.

Re: Issue free

I posted this because my 14 diesel is having tons of issues.

1. Nav is garbage. Worst nav I have seen in a modern car.
2. ACC turns on/off on its own
3. Transmissions shudders shifts like crap
4. Trim pieces aren't symmetrical
5. Random rough idle
6. DEF... the system is shit as a whole (compared to other trucks with it)

I can back him up. I have also owned several vehicles that had absolutely ZERO issues. First car I had that was issue free was a 5.0L Mustang. Owned it for almost four years, put 45,000 miles on it, and did nothing but put gas in it and change the oil & oil filter for the entire time I owned it.

Second issue-free vehicle I owned was an Acura TL. That one I owned for five years and never put a dime into it other than routine maintenance. It never once went back to the dealership after I purchased it brand new. I did do brakes, but that's not an issue, it's a wear item.

I currently own a 2004 Runner. It has been almost completely trouble-free for the 11 years I've owned it. The ONLY issue I've had is frozen piston in both front calipers. If it weren't for that one snag, it would be a 100% trouble-free vehicle too.

Anyway, the point is that lots of people drive cars for several years and have zero issues with them. But I guess if you keep ANY vehicle long enough, you're sure to encounter something that goes wrong.

EDIT: Forgot to say--my current Audi has also been 100% issue-free so far. That's surprising, considering that it's a German car. My other German cars have not been trouble free by any means.

That's a ridiculous comment. Nobody would consider having to occasionally add air to the tires as an issue. Why? Well, because no air-filled tire on earth can hold 100% of it's air over the long term. It's well accepted that tires will drop a bit of pressure over time. And don't even get me started on the effects of ambient temperatures on air pressure in your tires. Anyway, the point is issues cannot reasonably be defined as something so silly and trivial, simply because it is a given that we'll have to adjust air pressure in our tires,,,and add washer fluid to the resevoir,....and change our oil & oil filter....and eventually change spark plugs & filters....all that stuff is normal maintenance in any ICE vehicle and in no way constitutes an issue.
