Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

I never understand comparing ride quality with an older vehicle (unless it was superb). I would hope a 2014 car/truck/ etc. would have better ride quality than a car built 3, 6, 10 years ago.

If you said we currently own a 2014 BMW X5 and the 2014 Jeep grand Cherokee, and the ride quality is better. Then then that's a comparison that holds weight.

On a positive note: I agree with you, the ride quality in this car is far above the vehicles you mentioned.

You would hope, but you wouldn't know. If somebody owns an older version they may be interested in how folks think the new one compares. Even if you don't care, it's still valid.

I am with Bill... I liked the ride of my 2006 Envoy Denali, The Yukon I drove after that not as nice and the 2014 Jeep grand Cherokee has an even better ride than my 2009 ML320. I compare them all the same and that is comfort IMO. Frankly I have driven the 2013 ML and though the ML maybe corners a little better I can't get air ride unless I buy the bank so the JGC still wins.

For those looking to buy, don't get caught up in the negative feedback on this forum. there are plenty of 2014 Overland Jeep owners who are very happy with their purchase. i am one who has been fortunate to not experience any of the issues (a matter of fact none). I am now at 6000 miles and can tell you that the quality and built and ride (especially with the air suspension) is head above some of the other luxury SUV vehicles out there. I am coming from the Mercedes Benz family and I can tell you that I am more impressed with my overland than my 2009 ML350. I took a leap changing brands and I am very happy so far.

I actually decided to keep the Cherokee on my list BECAUSE of the thread "2014 GC Totally $#@% dead". What amazed me was that after all those problems, the original poster WANTED ANOTHER ONE! Must be a damn good vehicle when you happen to get a lemon and are willing to give the car, despite the company's slow response, another chance.

Eagleone...What problems have you found to be specific to the V-6 and don't appear in the V-8?

Re: Thank you Jeep couldn't be happier

John150 Mine started at 300 miles! A big thump from 2 to 1 . Passenger can feel it also .Service Mgr drove it and felt it. Drove a limited with V6 was not as bad. Was told to drive it more. Did and got worse and worse. Did the reset at 2 different dealerships. Problem not solved. Was told it was preforming at a Neg 10 and normal is Positive 10 for shifting. Field rep does nothing .Says its normal. Dealer wont allow me to bring it in because they feel its normal. In the morning its really bad. Eco off. Lunges and slams 1 to 2 and thumps 2 to 1 at stop then again. No help from Chrysler whats so ever. Worst experience ever !
