Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 reliability - let's get better info

We'll have an initial stat for the 2014s next month. Anyone who's been paying attention can guess the smart thing to do regarding a first-year Jeep.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Grand Cherokee to include owner experiences through March 31, 2013.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2012 Grand Cherokee: 54, moderate
2011 Grand Cherokee: 40, moderate

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2012 Grand Cherokee: 64, 4
2011 Grand Cherokee: 69, < 1

We'll have further updates in August and in November.

For the details, including the descriptions of reported repairs, and to sign up to help improve this information:

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 reliability - let's get better info

Always something minor going to happen but keeping maintenance up to date and driving with some care goes a long way. My wife drives a Honda CRV because she is just very hard on cars. Fast accelerations then fast stops and doesn't slow much on turns. For her there is no perfect vehicle but a leased CRV seems to be doing well. I hate that little AWD thing.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 reliability - let's get better info

mkaresh...just what is the sample size for these figures? About 1200 JGCs come off the line daily so the larger the sample, the better the result for your survey.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 reliability - let's get better info

I've had 3 recalls in just 2014 for the WK2 Limited from 2011 model so clearly we must not be counting these trips to the Jeep dealerships. That figure is ridiculous.
