2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought a new JGC in May 2011, the limited version with the hemi. Love the look of the new jeep inside and out. fun to drive with the power of the hemi. Have had one problem with it so far. went out to start it the other morning and it was completely dead. called roadside assist and they came out and jumped started it. but then all the warning lights stayed on and the gauges did not work. took it to the dealership and they told me your not supposed to jump start the new jeeps because they have a AGM battery in them. it turns out when they jumped it a computer modele was fried. not sure why it went dead in the first place, waiting to see if it happens again.


Best Features

ride, looks, power


Worst Features

need better info about the battery

Review

Just drove home in my new Limited with the Hemi and luxury package.
Drove the Volvo XC60/90, Audi Q5, Mercedes ML350, Land Rover LR2/4 and Lexus GX.
All were nice as you'd expect a new car to be but only the ML350 and Audi came cross to the drive and none to the cost/engineering/features/value that define the new Grand Cherokee.
I'm driving it 2900 miles in two weeks, I'll update my post after breaking it in on long road trip.
Can't wait!


Best Features

Panoramic sunroof, off road capability that doesn't trade on road performance, ride and performance with the Hemi (especially the sound track on acceleration)


Worst Features

Leather/wood steering wheel on models other than the Overland, old school buttons for the radio instead of using a touch screen for everything, more than 5 speeds in the transmission.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought the Laredo X 4x4 about 6 month ago, You would think built for resistance.... WRONG.... First 2 Months The passenger door didn't close, about 2 weeks in the shop, second 2 months, the keyless entry stopped being keyless... as a matter of fact it didn't even Start... about to weeks more in the shop, third 2 months, the alternator stopped working... it has been two weeks and it's still in the shop... the most fun part of this junk it's the international warranty policy: NONE!!!!!!!! but hey, this ain't america wright? i hope this post help somebody to make the right choice and NOT buy this crappy metal ensemble. I'm going back to Japan... At least you know what you are paying for...


Best Features

The exterior design it's pretty convincing, and the interior has it's good things.


Worst Features

Mechanical Problems, But most of all Electrical problems, this vehicle still has many things to solve, i would wait a couple of years to wait they finally make a model worth paying for.

Review

Just bought a '11 GC that was from enterprise with about 15K on it.
I am very tall and struggle to find vehicles that fit me well.
I have always drove Japanese (Subaru, Mazda, etc.).
Giving Detroit a shot.

So far, from an overall experience perspective, best vehicle I've ever owned.

I'm a little worried about reliability though every brand has its problems.
If you are really worried get an extended warranty.

It is a heavy SUV so the V6 does not shoot it off the line.
Once up to speed it cruises nicely.

Review

I've had this car for over 4 months and love driving it everyday!
it's reliable, strong engine etc.
I in the car a lot for business and the nav system with bluetooth has been unreal!!!!

I will say that my highlander had better storage, but that's my only complaint...
