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

I just bought a 2013 Overland Hemi 6 speed 4x4 wiih 35,000 miles.
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!!

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

Blend doors replaced. Leaking windshield washer nozzle. Steering wheel radio button replaced. ESIM pressure switch and gas cap replaced. Leaking front axle replaced. Horn went bad and replaced. All items replaced by maxcare. Some of them I would have left alone as they weren't a big deal if not for the maxcare warranty. Approx 93,600 miles. 2011 limited with hemi. Bought mine with 44k and it's been a solid vehicle thus far. Planning to flush and replace all fluids at 100k (although not necessary) and do another tune up as that's due soon.

I never buy extended warranties but the maxcare appears to be a good investment thus far. Might be worth it for you too since yours has the quadralift.

Yep....I bought the Maxcare with the Jeep. I normally dont buy warranties, but the Overland has so much "stuff" on it I felt the need......your post says I did the right thing!

Do you normally read one review before making purchases?

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

Ill 2nd that I never buy extended warranty/service contracts but I bought maxcare lifetime for this jeep. too good of a deal to pass up if you intend to keep the jeep for a long time. I have an early model 2014 33k and though I had several minor "new car related issues" that were corrected I have not had many issues since then. just moved out of the 3/36 so will see how it goes.

Yep...if it is on the internet it must be true!

Actually, my son and brotherinlaw have Grand Cherokees and I driven both and spent weeks reviewing and researching. Thats why I decided I wanted an Overland. With air suspension, power roof, navigation, etc, etc, etc, I thought Maxcare was a good choice!

65K miles. One issue with the QL compressor that was fixed under warranty. Otherwise, it's a stellar vehicle. No regrets and I'd buy another without hesitation.

Looks like James is getting a 2016 SRT in about 3,000 miles or so

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

14' Limited, 29k miles. My radio amp was loose from the factory, took it to the dealer and they reconnected it. During a routine check I just discovered my power steering fluid is almost non-existent, so I'll have to fill that back up. Check yours! Other than that, I've replaced the oil as needed, and also the cabin and air filter.

Great vehicle so far!

Nah, SRTs are cool and all, but too expensive and too bad on fuel for my liking for a daily driven vehicle.
