Hemi JGC 4WD
By helilog on
Vehicle
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Have owned for 30,000 miles. Laredo X with V-8 Hemi. EPA accurately rated at 13/19 mpg. Using Plus or Premium fuel allows the engine to run in 4-cylinder mode more, giving another 1 or 2 mpg. Have had zero problems with my Jeep. I've experienced engine surging noted by others, is eliminated by a downshift: move the gearshift lever to the left. I've experienced the bad key fob noted by others. Pop out the start button, insert fob in the hole and use as a normal key for a day. This recharges the fob battery. Repeat every 2 weeks. Roomy back seat fits child seat and 2 average adults. Front seats (leather, electric) are good for all day. This is a very nice vehicle.
Favorite Features
Reclining rear seat backs. Roomy rear storage area. Quality interior which matches up with the ML and GL Mercedes SUVs we have owned. As a matter of fact, many of the Jeep interior materials and parts look strangely identical to the Mercedes versions. This Jeep was developed by Chrysler/Mercedes alongside the current ML/GL, all three are built in the USA, so the commonality makes sense. Except the Jeep has a better 4WD system! Hemi V-8 sounds cool too.
Suggested Improvements
Go to a modern 7 or 8 speed transmission. Fuel economy and acceleration would improve and the complaints of engine jerkiness and surging, all caused by the current transmission, would disappear.
