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


Review

I bought a 2011 Grand Cherokee one month ago.
I have the V8 - Overland Edition, Black, w/ Saddlle/Black interior.

So far no problems.
The V8 has lots fo power and tourque.
Interior in comfortable, no issues.

Having traded in my Lexus ES 350 for this vehicle, I miss a few minor things.

The NAV doesn't automatically change from day to night lighting and it takes three steps on the menu to change it.
A bit of a pain and at night it's definately too bright.

Also, the keyless unlock often taken a few seconds to unblock.
My Lexus unlocked any door instantly.
On the Jeep it onlu unlocked the driver door and I usually havew to hold my hand their for 3 seconds or so before it unlock


Best Features

Interior comfort, v8 power. ALthough powerful the V8 is thristy!


Worst Features

See above.

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


Review

Traded 2009 Grand Cherokee with LUX Pkg, 3.7 Ltr eng for 2011
Laredo E w/tow pkg and 3.6 ltr eng. More equipment now is standard and the eng blows away the 3.7 noisey, slow, fuel thirsty engine. The ride is night and day different with the fully independent rear suspension. The quietness of driving 80 MPH down an interstate and hear yourself THINKING is unbelievable for an off road type vehicle. Dealer gave good discount upon purchase. Drove Ford Edge Limited and did not like the fact of FWD versus RWD when needing tow power. Edge is limited to 3500 lbs,Jeep tows 5000lbs. Ford would not budge on price either!


Best Features

Independent Rear suspension, Laminated door glass, much more comfortable seats, standard satellite radio for those long trips, new 3.6 Liter engine which is Flexfuel.


Worst Features

Mud Flaps should be standard factory equipment.

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


Review

I've only had my new Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited for a few days.
That's why I only gave 'Reliability' a '3'.
Time will tell in that category.

The Jeep is fun to drive.
The acceleration is good not great.
I don't understand when people make comments about poor acceleration for quick passing on the highway or slight body lean if you corner to fast.
If you're trying to do either of these things then you shouldn't be looking for an SUV.

The V6 is good enough for most unless, you tow, need a lot of acceleration for off-roading or carry around a large family with the cargo area full.

I will update this after I've driven for a few months...


Best Features

The Exterior and Interior look sharp. Keyless Entry and Go. Luxury Group Package. Ton of safety features. 20" Wheels


Worst Features

The Uconnect/Touchscreen/Navigation all looks a little outdated. Also, the voice activated dialing needs a little work! I know this is nit-picking but they could've done a better job with the middle console/gearshift area. There's no place to put your cellphone or any change you have. Also, I'm not sure if it's the E-Brake or the Hood Release but it's a little big and is kinda in the way.

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


Review

great size,rear wheel drive but 3.6 does not have quite enough torque - as most v6's go. nice ride but for a new engine needs better gas mileage. meaning 6 speed transmission. i guess the 24 gal fuel tank will give range but at the pump $80 is steep for a fill up?? and price is very steep for upgrades.


Best Features

size,rear wheel drive.

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


Review

The ride was super, the looks super, power was ok, my problem with the V-6 was that standing still or driving there was a constant vibration in both the steering wheel and the floor.
Jeep could not fix the problem and it became so iritating that with less than 1000 miles on it, I ended up trading it for a Dodge at a huge loss of money.
Would not recoment the V-6 to anyone.
Drove two other Jeeps with the V-6 and they also vibrated, the floor and the steering wheel and one of the two the shift lever was also vibrating.


Best Features

The ride was great, no problem there and the power with the V-6 was ok, but the constan vibration on one long trip was making my left foot go numb. Would not recomend this car with the V-6 to anyone and as I said, there was no fix for the vibration problem.


Worst Features

They need to change the engine motor mounts to try and dampen the vibrations of the engine at least that was what two mechanics told me off the record at two different Jeep dealerships. Also, my wife and everyone else who rode in the Jeep felt the vibrations as well.
