Rolled past 90,000 miles today...

Hard to believe my 2011 Overland rolled past 90,000 miles tonight. It has been a great vehicle with no issues...knock on wood. I have a squeal from my AC blower motor which I need to replace, but otherwise I have not had any mechanical issues. With 90,000 miles I want to trade it for another Overland, but will keep my '11 until the 2019 redesign comes out.

This is my first Jeep and certainly will not be my last. Jeep quality is outstanding.

From someone who has been discouraged from buying a Jeep by all the issues I've read on this site, that's good to hear!

Good to hear. Wait a minute, do you work for FCA? Kidding. But yeah hopefully mine will be as trouble-free as my Dodge SUV was prior to this.

No, I do not work for FCA. Too funny.

Okay, here is the picture showing that it happened.

Gotcha beat! 2012 w/ just turned 110,000 and no I'm not with FCA. ljramsey, super easy to change out the blower motor, did mine in about 30 if I remember right

I think these guys with the high mileage and no issues are FCA plants.


LOL!.

When you consider that the factory builds between 800 and 1000 of them...a day...even with an elevated incidence of issues with certain build dates over the years, there are a lot of folks who have had limited issues. While I cannot say I've been "problem free" with my JGC, it's been comparable or better than most other vehicles I've owned over the years. That experience dates back to 1979 and I've always purchased vehicles new. I'm currently at 72K miles with my MY12 and rolling right along...

Re: Rolled past 90,000 miles today...

2013 and just crossed 80k miles. Not quite as lucky - water pump died, heated seat died, hearing some sounds but Jeep dealer sucks for diagnosing that kind of crap. It is "fine" but especially with crap dealer service I highly doubt my next vehicle will be a Jeep.

If you've had no issues, why weren't you able to drive it past the 90,000 mile mark? Out of gas?

It is good to hear about the good once in a while. Glad you are enjoying the Jeep.

I have my tie breaker on order. I had an 07 for almost four years with nothing but oil changes. Had an early build '14 for a year and a half before I dumped it. I hope the '17 breaks in my favor.

Re: Rolled past 90,000 miles today...

Guess I spoke a little too soon in saying I had been trouble free. Turned 91,000 miles yesterday. Today it is in the shop for new sawy bar links and a total brake job. Still not bad for a vehicle with 91,000 miles. Will cost me less than 3 new vehicle payments.

Those are not Trouble Items, those are maintenance items.
