2014 jeep overland
 
I am currently looking into buying a 2014 jeep overland 4x2- v6. I have heard to many bad reviews about them. The one I am looking into was built on dec. 9 2013. I am wondering if most of the problems were fixed or they still ongoing? I couldn't imagine getting a new vehicle and having to bring it to the shop numerous times.

Well, I can't speak for the Overland directly because I own a 2014 Laredo. For the things that they share, I have noticed that the 7 inch display where the speedometer is lags sometimes, but you will probably get over it. This is the only thing I can think of that will be similar to the Overland.

Also, it depends on what you're getting on the Overland. Is it a 4x4, Air suspension, etc. Sorry I couldn't be much help but hopefully I helped a little.

Well that one of the biggest issues I have, the only other one I have is the 5.0 Uconnect also lags and sometimes when I start the car, it will show I have no presets, but they come back about 5 seconds after I start the car. I know the overland comes with the 8.4 Uconnect system so I do not know if it also has those problems. Other then that, it's a pretty reliable car (even though some people put up bad reviews)

I have a 14 Overland built 7/15 and so far I have had zero problems with it. There have been complaints about rough shifting but I have not had that. There also is a recall out that causes the dash to go black, but I have not seen that problem either. I think Jeeps built after about August 1 have the recall already installed. I would not be afraid of purchasing one. Al

Thanks so much. Yes I was 100% set until the reviews. So we kind of started looking into the durangos but looking at them in person the Cherokees definitely stand out and are more appealing to me anyways. The More I review it does seem a lot of the reviews are within the recall stage thus the problems for those consumers but it's still good to find out if it's ongoing ya know. Our first choice color is billet silver built December 9th and the other is granite metallic built July ( both black interior) however since the silver was built in December and our first choice I think we will take that route.Thanks for your feedback hopefully this week is the week! :-) happy Monday

One more thing, never just say "Cherokee" the new Cherokee is offensive to the Grand Cherokee lol. Other than that you will love your new Billet Silver Overland. One more thing, if you decide to off road any, you want may want to consider the 4x4 version.

We have a 2014 Overland built back in Feb/Mar 2013 and other than the software bugs that have fixes with the TSB and 2 recalls, the car has been awesome. The air suspension has been flawless so far, tranny is still butter smooth, and the V8 while still a gas hog, still puts a smile on my face when I stab the pedal. The only thing I can complain about is not being able to get some of the newer features they added in the June/July builds like the ACC w/Stop which you will have if you get that package and not being able to turn off ECO permanently.

Anything built after August 2013 has the bugs worked out.

Bought my Billet Silver Overland last month. It was built in October. Right after the purchase the dealer did the update to the Uconnect system and a flash update for the transmission. I have not had any issues with it and love the vehicle. If I can make my 35 mile commute with minimal traffic I walk into my house with a big, dumb, grin on my face even after a month of driving it! Just get yourself a recently built one and you will not regret it.
