2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Any new vehicle is a mixed bag of hope and disappointment. My 2011 JEEP Grand Cherokee is no different. If Chrysler was looking for this vehicle to reinvigorate the JEEP line, they should have ditched the penny pinching and built a better vehicle. I was most perturbed at the crippleware electronics. Buttons exist for features that are not enabled. I'm not keen on paying another $1,200 for three dip-switches to be flipped on electronics that are already in my vehicle. Having the chance to really bring forward a WOW vehicle. Chrysler is still "business as usual". Fail
I enjoy several of the features, including the LED menu and data center between the speedo and the tach. The steering wheel cruise and radio controls are intuitive in their operation and located where you'd expect them.
Throttle response is horrible. It should be proportional, not like a malfunctioning light switch. Buckets seats have the comfort of a bench, no lateral support. Crippleware electronics.
