2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Must admit, I was initially weary of jumping-in to the Jeep (i.e. Chrysler) family after reading a number of reviews over the years.
However, the overall design of the Grand Cherokee, plus the pricing and the engine performance, had me negotiating very hard for a lengthy extended warranty (I know some folks don't like purchasing extended warranties).
There were a couple of cosmetic things that needed to be fixed.
One of the exterior trims on the passenger window needed a new fastener, and there was something rolling-around underneath the passenger front seat.
Both items were taken care of.
I drive a lot of miles per year, usually 20k+.
One long trip was comfortable.
Overall design, engine performance (and economy - had 26+ mpg on one highway trip), and my dealer has been very responsive/helpful.
Within 2 weeks after purchase had a lot of snow-fall, and the GC handled it wonderfully.
Seems to be much more quiet, at speed, than I anticipated - a very nice surprise.
Cloth seats seem to wear quickly.
I had planned to have a Katzkin interior put in after a year anyway.
My primary complaint, though, is the transmission.
It works fine, but really needed one more "true" gear, before an overdrive.
They have gone to an 8-gear transmission in 2014, so likely no longer an issue.
