Re: Wk2....how many miles on yours, and what problems???

Dropped off Jeep this morning to have the headlamp replaced and a State Inspection sticker.

Asked the service writer who was a tech for 20 ys. and he looked up and said the HID module is covered 3/36 and was pretty sure the maxcare covered it too. he would have to look at the contract I have.

I got a Dart for a loaner. Not a bad car, rides fine, only gripe is the egress in and out, have to duck to get in. Guess that is the trade off on all these new econoboxs to get the drag down.

Per the other headlamps with haolgen bulbs, maybe those are only 1 yr 12K since the bulb can be replaced pretty cheap.

Re: Wk2....how many miles on yours, and what problems???

'14 Ltd Hemi ORAII 22K, bought new Aug '13.

2 or 3 recalls, I think. No big deal.

Replaced rear camera, had a bad spot on it, under warranty. New one is brighter.

Replaced rear ELSD motor, under warranty.

It's about due for an oil change.

And it needs a bath.

Re: Wk2....how many miles on yours, and what problems???

I've had plenty of recalls in my 2014 that have mostly been addressed...but those were mostly computer issues etc..overall I've really enjoyed this Jeep.

I can tell you one thing for sure ....its not a good idea to add 13LBS of boost to a stock 3.6l

or else you'll be pulling chunks like this out of the engine bay ...50K miles and now replacing the engine

Just the front bumper doesn't fully meet flush with the front left fender all the way at the bottom. It sticks out a quarter inch. I push it I and it just springs back out.

Re: Wk2....how many miles on yours, and what problems???

2011 Overland, 80,000 km, Canadian winters

- sun visor fell off (driver's) in first month
- air suspension failure, took two winters to figure it out. It had a leak only below -10 C.
- several recalls
- brake booster failure
- brake calliper failure (right rear)
- driver's seat tears on the vinyl part. (I weigh 160 lbs)
- driver's door rust (no where else, no accidents)
- passenger seat repaired for seat belt sensor problem
- washer nozzle failure
- few other minor things

This is my 4th consecutive Grand Cherokee (over 20 yrs) and the best driving one but with the most problems. I thought about buying a 2017 Summit but I will be moving on.

Im curious as to the reliability, major issues and problems, and longevity of these Jeeps.
So, how many miles and what issues, if any, have you had.

I had mine for a week and no issues yet!!
2012 Summit V8 4x4 with 92,000 miles and climbing. Only recent problem is the stupid stalling on the freeway after a going freeway speeds and then slowing down quickly. Other than that it has been really, really reliable. The only long period I didn't have the car for a repair was a week when the Quadra-lift compressor went out and the service dealer wanted to rip my interior out to check the hoses and I refused and suggested they check the compressor instead.

Other than that it has been working perfectly, knock on real wood trim.

Re: Wk2....how many miles on yours, and what problems???

2015 HA

Nothing major really, just the wrong center console cover (vinyl vs leather) and I think the fan that runs the ventilated seat is a bit loud, so I might have that looked at whenever I take it in for oil.

The heated seats are pretty sucky in winter, but that's a known issue that might not be fixable.

34k on my '12 no issues besides all the damn recalls. Traded up for '15 Altitude just under 6k. No issues at all.

Funny garage full of potential mods and no confidence in the Jeep to make them.
