I'd be alright with that if it were just for flashes as he states. People have different levels of tolerance for such things. Why does that confuse you? Now if it had physical issues and I had to go 3 times I might be upset, especially if the Jeep was unusable.
To the point though...I wish JD Power would separate it by more than model year. From my "life" on Jeep Garage, I can see a HUGE difference both in the number and severity of problems as the 2014 model year has gone on. Jeep is still letting some silly things get through - like the CV boot clamp, but overall things have been getting better. I'm betting a lot of those issues in JD Power are from the early 2014 MY builds, and I'm guessing those from late in the model year have been less severe.
I also believe that a vehicle like the JGC which relies heavily on software is getting hurt more than those that are less reliant on software. The bad news is we have to take it back and get flashed showing up on JD Power, the good news is we get a software fix to the problem.
So far my 2/14 build has been perfect. There's one recall coming up for the ACC issue (just a flash) and I'm spending my own money to protect the diesel DEF injector (nothing has happened, just preventative) which annoys me a bit, but overall the vehicle has been fantastic in my admittedly limited time with it - 2500 miles, 2.5 months. There are lots of others out there with perfect Jeeps too, they just have nothing to say.
I certainly wouldn't trade mine for anything else.
