My current 2010 laredo has been very reliable- couldn't be happier. My tires are even exceeding my expectations. I already have 70K on them and they appear to have another 20K left.
I still have my 94 toyota 4x4 pickup. Remarkably bullet-proof!
You live in Minnesota and speak in Km... Is that the definition of too far North?

No insult intended, just doubled checked your location because I thought I knew where you were.

No, the K is just "thousand" in miles, not Km.

This is a good topic as it would be easy to get spooked in getting anything new. But across the board I'm sure the 2014 JGC is probably better than most.

It is a good conversation and I am glad it came up. another Member was asking about maintenance and Reliability of the 2011-2013 and so I was asking at the dealerships to the mechanics which is always a good real source. Very little problems to speak of and not a lot of maintenance requirements. Really I just look at the 2014 as a spruce up with some technology advancements

Sure they are still working a couple of things out but most of the fixes have been a new readio or straight flash (yes I am aware there are a few members who have had major issues but out of the thousands out the door....?)

The Mechanic actuall went as far as to say even the Pentastar has been a better engine in the Jeep. Issues that have cropped up in the Caravan etc have not been an issue with the Jeeps which is very cool.

Hey guys did you all buy the extended service plan on your 14? My sales guy tried pushing me to buy it but I declined as I always keep cars 2-3 years max. The finance guy who did my docs claims 95% of buyers buy it. I call bs but what do I know. Haha.

90 What percent.... if that business office person is getting that kind of penetration he would be superman. I would say it depends on your location but it is usually 40-60% MAX. but 95, I smell somthing bovine, male and stinky for sure.

Personally I always take it, I usually dont keep vehicles very long but I do a lot of miles.

Re: To Those Afraid Of Having Problems...

I've been known to keep a vehicle I really like as long as 10-12 years, so I got the Lifetime MaxCare. 2-3 years? Wouldn't even cross my mind to get it.
