My 30,000 mile review

I purchased my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 5.7 Hemi AWD new 7 months ago. Today, I rolled over 30,000 miles and thought I'd share my opinions. That's all they are...opinions. Everyone has their own and everyone has their own experiences...these are mine. Your experience WILL differ....and thus so will your opinions.

In a nut-shell...its not prefect; but it is DAMN good.

Now...a few more details -
Im a consultant. I do a great many things of a widely varied nature. One of the things that I do is manage an exotic game ranch here in Central Texas. That usually wouldnt be a significant point other than it goes a long way towards describing how I use my Jeep. Simply put, I use the snot out of it. I do not baby it. It earns its keep...all day...every day. 30,000 miles in 7 months sounds like a lot, but the number doesnt do justice to the TYPE of driving that I do. As I've mentioned in other threads, most of my 150-mile commute every day is about 80% toll road at 80-85 mph, Roughly 10% gravel and washboard roads, Roughly 5% small town streets (that means a combination of smooth and crappy), and roughly 5% rocky trails and cross country (no roads or trails at all). I do this all day. Several days a week...rain or shine. In the dark and in the daylight. Freezing or 103 (the hottest its been in the 7 months that Ive had THIS Jeep).

Prior to this JGC Summit, I had a 2012 Jeep Sahara Unlimited. Mostly stock. Loved it but wanted something a little better suited for 100 miles a day at "high" speeds, so I traded it at 131,000miles. It did an amazing job, even at "high" speeds, but I was looking for something a bit....quieter. Im not too much of a man to admit that when I handed over the keys to my wrangler, I had a tear in my eye when I pleaded with the sales man: "I know its just a used vehicle to yall, but please dont let this go to some jerk-wad who will not appreciate it." I miss my wrangler.

But I very much enjoy my Summit.

When I drove the Summit off the lot, the dealer had 45# of air in each tire and I did not like the ride quality. I immediately referenced this forum and found that the other forum members recommend the pressure on the OEM Fortera tires is 36#. I deflated to the recommended 36# and the ride quality improved DRAMATICALLY. I was concerned about shredding the sidewall with so little pressure on the sharp and jagged surfaces that I run and have had not one problem with the tires at all...zip...zero...zilch. I am really extremely impressed with these basic, low-bid, city-tires. They are quiet, smooth, efficient, and offer surprising traction. I had originally planned on replacing them with my all-time favorite tire (Falken Wild Peak AT3W) and was gonna yank he fortera's off and put the AT3W on at the earliest possible opportunity. However, I've gradually become confident enough in the city tires that I am willing to wait a little while longer until the next decent sale at Discount tire. The Fortera is a good tire, but I still have to be more careful than I would be with true A/T tires. Who knows...maybe labor day. Im in no particular hurry, the Fortera's look like they have about 20k more miles of tread on them...that would put them about 50k which, again, is impressive given the nature of my driving.

Why did I select the Summit? I did so because I wanted the gadgets and "creature Comforts" Specifically, I wanted the cooled seats, adaptive cruise control, acoustic noise dampening, Quadra-Lift suspension.

I chose poorly.

Having been with it a for a little more than a loop around the planet, now, I can say that many of the gatdget are cool. But for MY personal uses...I would likely have been happier with the Overland (as was recommended to me by multiple other forum members...yeah...I remember....I get it).

The cooled seats...yup, they are a winner. Definetly worth it for me. Nobody likes swamp-ass...especially if you are in a vehicle for 6-8-10-12 hours a day. Love the cooled seats. Back in that pathetic excuse for a winter that we had this year, I was equally fond of the heated seats (front and back) as well as the heated steering wheel. All of which were marketing "gimmicks" that I thought were a bit prissy for a Jeep, but I was curious. and now Im SOLD. Love it.

Adaptive headlights....I was intrigued. THought they would help me dodge the kamikaze deer that flourish in my area. No complaints from me, but not much to brag about. I could live without them, but they are nice to have.

Acoustic Dampening....I was intrigued. IM also a commercial pilot and my headsets have acoustic noise cancellation which works GREAT. In the Summit...I have no idea if its working or not. Initially I didnt think it was on. But about a month ago I started having this bone-chilling screech on one or two occasions when I would shut down the engine and open the door simultaneously. This would potentially be the acoustic monitoring sensors freaking out and overcompensating for unusual and unpredictable spikes in sound that it is trying to compensate for. Just my guess. In short, the acoustic dampening is functional, and probably helps some; but I really cannot tell a tremendous amount of difference between the Summit that I own and the Limited that I rented to test before I bought. Granted, the Limited was the V-6 and the Summit is a V-8, so it isnt exactly apples to apples. MOST of the noise I hear is road-SURFACE noise that changes considerably with different road types. I get NO wind noise (acoustic glass) and I feel robbed that I cannot hear much engine/exhaust noise (I wanted ot hear the Hemi Growl) but that is probably the Acoustic Dampening doing its job. Be careful what you wish for. Chalk this up to its another nice feature (I guess) but I could live without it.

Reclining rear seat....this hardly gets any mention anywhere. And the sales staff (all of them) gathered around in amazement wheen I demonstrated that it is a feature in ALL Grand Cherokees. I love this feature and so do my passengers. Huge selling point in my opinion.

8.4" infortainment system.....reviews say that this is THE best infotainment system in ANY vehicle in on the market today. I believe them. Love it. Has extremely minor quirks, but is 99.9% AWESOME.

Adaptive cruise control....takes some getting used to. Hard to trust it at first. but once you get the knack of it...its pretty nice. Easy to forget when you are in a "lesser" vehicle that doesnt have it (like my Wife's Jag F-Type). Nice feature to have.

Not so nice is the Collision Avoidance "Auto Braking" feature. I had read comments before I bought about how it isnt subtle or gentle. I had dismissed those comments as being petty, nit-picking or oblivious. Afterall...if the vehicle decided it needs to step in and do something to save itself, do you really want it to be gentle? F---- YES!!! I do. Holy crap, I ve had that thing go off a few times now...slow car changes lanes in front of you, cow wanders onto the road, tumbleweed rolls by (serously)...all of which caught my eye a spit second before my Jeep gave me a brief warning alarm and flash on the instrument display before slamming on the brakes so hard I thought it was trying to turn itself inside out. I mean...crap flew EVERYWHERE. I thought I had hit something...only to find out that it was the Jeep, saving itself. For safety's sake, I will say that its a nice feature. For sanity's sake I will say....might want to make sure you have a clean pair of drawers conveniently available cuz if that thing goes off, you just might need em.

Seat comfort...I rad in one of the forums that various trim levels have different levels of plushness to the seat foam. I cannot complain about the seat softness, the foam is pliable, the leather is supple and durable. I like it. I do wish the side-bolsters were a wee bit tighter. Preferably adjustable bolsters. If i was to wish a bit more, Id say that I wish someone at Jeep could figure out that it isnt a good thing that the seat sits flat. There should be a slight aft-ward cant to the seat surface so that gravity helps keep you IN the seat rather than hours of slouching trying to slide you OUT of the seat. This is rasily resolved with about an inch worth of washers under the front mounting bolts of the seats. Lifts the front of the seat just enough to crate the feel that I personally prefer....again...this is an opinion.

Panoramic roof....love it.

Suade-like headliner....Didnt think I would be a fan since I work in extremely dusty environments. But, so long as I keep the air system on Recirculate when needed, I have had no issues with it at all. Im happy.

Speaking of climate control....fantastic!!!! gets it cool quickly and keeps it COLD when I want. Separate climate zones keep me and my wife happy at the same time....ahhhhh....peace and tranquility.....

What else....

5.7 Hemi. Nice. No mechanical issues. Runs great. I average about 18mpg because I cuise at 80+ mph. When I cruise at 65 I average around 24mpg. And at 55 I get around 28mpg (there is a reason they call 55 the most fuel efficient speed...fluid dynamic comprehensibility) BUt I usually make the deliberate trade of more dollars and more dinosaur-juice...for less time getting where I need to be. I do like the power of the V-8 but I have leaned that I have to get slightly higher in the power bands (over 3k rpm) before I can really FEEL the pull. Sports mode, in particular, if you drive like a normal person, it doesnt feel much different than in normal mode. But if you are in sports mode and you drive like a teenager, you'll feel the difference.

Quadralift suspension....this is probably my biggest disappointment. Dont get me wrong, it is very cool. And it is useful at highway speeds. But it is NOT smooth. It is NOT gentle. It is an adjustable air suspension that is a bit bouncy and harsh for a "luxury" vehicle. In off-raod 2....its extremely harsh and unforgiving...but its supposed to be, how else are ya gonna get more clearance than I had in the wrangler? Pump it up. But IM talking even in "normal ride" configuration...its just too bouncy. There isnt enough CUSH in the the shocks. I should opted OUT of Quadralift for my peuposes.

So....to summarize (again). For my personal purposes, I think I would have been better served with an Overland. That Summit is incredible. I realy REALY like it. I would not trade out of it. I have the unlimited Lifetime warranty and I anticipate making great use of it (the Jeep and the Warranty) for many years and many many many many many miles to come.

But sometimes I still miss my Wrangler.

Happy trails, all.

V.

Re: My 30,000 mile review

Love your review. Thanks for posting. Regarding the bouncy feel, many members have reported that the problem lies more in the stock Forteras than the suspension. A stiffer sidewall will help immensely when you feel the need to upgrade tires.

Interesting....

I would have assumed that the stiffer sidewall would result in a stiffer ride.

I had been wavering between the LT285/55R20 I like the 285 width, I like the 18/32 of tread depth, I like the load range. But I was concerned the 10-ply side walls would make the ride even more harsh.

Alternatively, I was thinking of the P275/55R20 with the XL load range...a slightly (but significantly) toned-down version of the LT tire (above). But I was willing to make marginal sacrifices in the tire specs in an effort to achieve noticeable improvements in the ride quality.

Falken Spec sheet
WILDPEAK A/T3W TIRE | Falken Tire

Naturally, I understand that specs do not a good ride, make....and that nobody knows until I finally get these AT3W's mounted and put some miles on them.

But if members are saying that the STIFFER side wall makes the ride BETTER....then I might be back towards the LT tire.

Re: My 30,000 mile review

My misunderstanding. The complaint was that the Forteras were too soft so I assumed you meant soft bouncy instead of hard bouncy. Some models have a stiffer suspension but I think it was the High Altitudes with the stiffer bag system for tighter on road cornering. Not positive there though. Hopefully someone with a fully functioning memory will ramble by soon. My memory is so bad I can hide my own Easter eggs.

Re: My 30,000 mile review

Nice review. I still miss my Wrangler, but my High Altitude is such a nice and beautiful vehicle. I hate that its so nice, but I love that its so nice. I also hate the Advanced Collision warning system and turned it off. I don't use the ACC either. I just use regular cruise control. I drive mine in Sport mode around town all the time because I like the handling and shift points. I only drive normal mode on highway. I would like to switch the Fortera's, but its a lease and I doubt I will put that kind of money in mine. I put 800 miles a month on my JGC. I like the Hemi, but I really feel like it should be able to produce another 50-75 HP. To me it feels like it has a parachute on the back sometimes. I think I might trade it in for either a TrailHawk because I like the platform and size, but probably at end of '17 or '18 if they are still around. I would just like something a little more off road ready and not so car like. Otherwise I will probably get back into a Rubicon or maybe a Raptor.

Re: My 30,000 mile review

Excellent write up.

You mentioned you'd like a little bit more responsiveness from the Hemi. I recently installed a Sprint Booster in my 2013 JGC Overland with its V8. It quickens the response in an amazing way while retaining the stock acceleration rate when you're just cruising. It has three push button settings; stock, around town, and all out.

I've installed many mods over the years. I got my 2001 F150 Lightning into the '12s' in the 1/4 mile with just add-ons so I'm sensitive to what works.

Having said that, the SB is one of if not the best mods I've ever installed. I'm still getting 18-20 mpg on the interstate but when I want/need it, it reacts instantly to the loud pedal. It took me about 20 minutes which is a little longer than most to install but hey, I'm 77 years old. No tools necessary.

I think it would answer your concern perfectly.

Re: My 30,000 mile review

I only play in sport mode when im feeling rambunctious, when it wont annoy the surroundings ( I try to be considerate of others), and when Im accelerating. All three conditions, not either/or. So I dont use sport very often.

I dislike the sport shifting points during deceleration and stop/go scenarios. (yes, I understand downshifting...lol ). So Ill switch to sport mode for a zesty acceleration, then once I get up to speed, I switch back to standard mode. I personally LOVE the T-Shifter and electronic transmission. To each their own.

Im thinking HARRRD about the possibility of doing the Exhaust Resonator Delete to get a wee-bit more throaty sound without dumping big bucks on a cosmetic change (acoustically speaking). But there are wildly varying reports on the forums about whether its good or bad; whether I have to delete the resonators and the mufflers, together; etc etc.

Problem is that Im mostly happy with it now and I'd only gain 5-10% more grining if it all went as I'd like....so IM weighing that POTENTIAL gain vs the potential disappointments if something doesnt go right.

Gives me stuff to ponder.

Aren't there separate front and rear height adjustments for the seat cushion?

Not on mine. THe bottom of the seat goes up...and it goes down...but the BOTTOM doesnt tilt. (on mine). The back of the seat reclines....all the way...which is awesome. The lumbar support extends and retracts....AND the lumbar raises and lowers for optimum positioning along the spine...which is incredible. Now, if only there were a software update for "Shiatsu Mode" which would roll the lumbar support up and down slowly massaging the drivers back......

But....I guess I need to have a reason to get OUT of the Jeep every now and then. LOL

Re: My 30,000 mile review

Are you sure? I would have sworn the seat switch works like every other 8-way power seat switch in the world - i.e., if you pull up on the front end of the switch, the front of the seat goes up, and if you push down on the back end of the switch, the back of the cushion goes down. It would be astonishing to me if it does not, and I'm pretty darn sure I would have noticed that when I rented a Limited last year for a couple of weeks.

Well mine certainly does. I have a 14 Summit and if I press upwards on the front of the seat adjustment button only the front of the seat goes up. Ditto for the back.

im pretty sure.

I've messed with it a great deal with no success. I was bemused by it since the bottom-tilt has been in cars for about 40 years that i know of.

I certainly hope that I am wrong. I'll mess with it some more and if I find that I am wrong, I will very happily report back.
