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.

5/12/2016: Still very pleased with the Jeep Grqand Cherokee Limited. I have had only one problem with it which occurred in October 2015. The Climate Control system went totally haywire (HVAC and defrost front & rear). Dealer replaced center stack, but that didn't solve problem. Had to replace a controller module under the hood and that did the trick. Otherwise, trouble free, and a very enjoyable vehicle to own and drive. I do mostly city driving with occasional highway trip. Mostly get 17+ mpg, but on the highway I have gotten as high as 27 on long trips.

I now have owned my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited for just over four years, and it is still a pleasant ownership experience. No problems other than the one I described above, which was fixed and has nver again been an issue. In September, FCA did an over the wi-fi update of my U-Connect system, and I was concerned that there might be issues, since I was driving while the update was going on, and there were signal interruptions due to dead spots on the trip. No problem. The update worked fine. If FCA stopped raising the prices on Jeep Grand Cherokee models, I'd definitely get another one.
