2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the 2011 GC Overland (V8) white with saddle.
Best looking SUV for the money. This is my 3rd GC and by far the best. The interior is the best I have ever seen in an SUV. Nice touches are the lighted door handles and door pockets. The ride, handling and acceleration are top notch. The adaptive cruise (ACC) and forward collision (FCW) work great. If youre looking for good fuel economy look elsewhere (15 mpg with Hemi). Unfortunately, all is not well. Problems so far include:
iPod communication with the 730 RHR radio is intermittent(no fix), rear seat had cut in leather from factory, radio developed static and had to be replaced, and vehicle would drift right.
The styling in and out is great. Accleration from the V8 is unbelievable. The ACC and FCW are really nice. The panoramic sunroof is also a nice touch.
My biggest complaintconstant clanking in steering column while stopping and turning.
I have taken the vehicle to two dealerships which told me that they cant duplicate the problem.
The ipod link needs to work everytime the car is started...not sometimes. Jeep needs to supply a manual for the radio that is installed in the vehicle not for one that is similar.
