2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
Negative consumer reviews here and elsewhere stopped me from looking at 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Six months later, I went to a Jeep dealer and checked out a 4wd GC Limited.
Chrysler jacked up the prices by about $300 (probably to cover all the warranty expenses on the earlier production models), so I guessed they had fixed all of the problems.
Bought one, and now have 1100+ miles on it & it runs fine. No transmission pbs., no touch screen/UConnect pbs. Quiet, comfortable, rides & handles well.
Fit & finish is so good, you'd never think you were in a Chrysler product. We're a two car family, & this is our 1st vehicle since 1995 to actually achieve the EPA mpg numbers.
It's hard to pick one favorite--it's the whole package.
Handling is especially impressive for a SUV.
Fit & finish is really nice.
1. Chrysler always is cheap about something. Big disappointment on test drive was the $895 deluxe infotainment system has no CD player (it's optional at outrageous add'l cost).
Bought the GC without CD player, and converted some CD's to mp3's, loaded them onto a USB flash drive and plugged into the system.
It works, but converting CD's is a time-consuming pain.
C'mon Chrysler--put back the CD player!
Even our 2013 Kia Optima EX UVO system has a CD player, and the car listed for $14,000 less than the Jeep.
2. All cars with electronic gear selectors should have a manual override to get vehicle out of "Park" if there is a system failure(just an opinion--hasn't happened, hope it doesn't).
