Re: JD Power Initial Quality

Re: Consumer Reports Drops Grand Cherokee Recommendation

JGC is officially out of contention for our September buy. Too many red flags from multiple sources. Jeep - you've got major QC issues. Best of luck all. Bye-bye.

It appears the plant is over capacity, and that is contributing to the quality problems. Wouldn't it make sense to slow the process to increase QC?

Re: Consumer Reports Drops Grand Cherokee Recommendation

Reality check: CR initially gave the thumbs up based on their subjective evaluation. They withdrew the recommendation a few months later due to objective subscriber data.

Re: Changes for 2015?

Perhaps the 2015 JGC could be reliable. Perhaps it could have superior fit and finish. Perhaps Jeep/Chrysler could substantially improve quality control.

Re: 700 miles and at JGC wont start

Acilate: It's interesting how a lot of anecdotes turn into data. The 12/13 issue of Consumer Reports regarding the anecdote rich JGC is a good example of that phenomenon.

Re: 700 miles and at JGC wont start

It's all Consumer Reports' fault. JGC's minus 90% reliability is just an urban myth.
