2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV 75th Anniversary 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

I had a BMW X3 I loved but it had become unreliable and the last estimate for repair was more than than the car was worth. So I sold it and bought this 2016 leftover Grand Cherokee. I really want to love this car because its a great ride. Very comfortable and the technology is intuitive to use. But on two occasions now it's failed to start and had to be towed in to the dealer for repair. And on both occasions the "technician" goes to work on the vehicle and it starts for him. No codes tripped to indicate what was wrong. So the story is, "sorry but if we can't repeat the episode there's nothing we can do". So I'm stuck with this potential lemon that's not worth what I still owe on it. And if Chrysler can't or won't resolve the problem I've no choice but to trade it at a loss as I have to have reliable transportation. Should have bought the 4Runner I was considering.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

This is the 2nd Jeep my wife bought and this is much better than the liberty she traded in. We love the vehicle but there are a few things we are not a huge fan of, but we would still rather have the jeep than not! We don't think the acceleration is very good at all. I mean it's not a car and it's really heave so what did we expect? We arent happy with the Ulink being an extra cost, but again, it's not a big deal just a lot of other features we wont use.

Review

The Jeep in extremely unreliable. The transmission tries to predict how you want it work, but what ends up happening is shifting from 0 gear to 1st (roughly 0-10 mph) there is a pretty hard shift. The transmission ends up struggling, and I'm sure it will go out much faster than it should because of the terrible transmission technology they created. I took my Jeep in for this issue 3 times and was told that that's just what is does and the best they can do is hope if my transmission does go out it happens before the warranty is up. Seriously! The Limited 75th edition also has 20 inch wheels when the wheel well is made for 18 inches. That means that the tires have to be low profile to fit. So, make sure not to use the Jeep for long car trips or take it off road (you know the main reasons to buy a Jeep)! The 20 inch rims and performance tires ruin the usability of the Jeep. I've had my Jeep 11 months and I've had 3 tires blow out. I've never had a tire blow out on any other vehicle I've had, and I've had more than 10 vehicles. I would never recommend this vehicle and I'm working on trading mine in now. I loved the Jeep brand but after buying a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 75th Anniversary Edition, I can honestly say I will never buy a Jeep again.

Review

In April of 21016, I decided to buy my first brand new vehicle. It was a toss up between a Jeep and a Subaru. These were the choices based on where I live and the harsh road conditions that exist in the winter. Well, I drove the JGC 75th and my wife and I fell in love. *My Jeep Grand Cherokee has the 5.7L V8 Hemi. It has all the tech and safety features that any high end vehicle and its a Jeep. The problems started in March of 2017. First the radio would cut out. It wouldn't lose power, the sound would cut out. Doesn't matter if it was BT, Radio, USB, the sound would cut out. Then the instrument panel would short out. At night you could see the voltage irregularity in the map lights and the brake/reverse lights. Since March, the Jeep has been in the shop 8 times with a total of 4 months at the service center. They have changed the alternator twice, the PCM, the battery, multiple radio updates and now its a voltage issue they are trying to correct. They have given us a rental, but it is not the truck I am paying for. FCA refuses to buy it back or make it right in anyway. At this point, I will not recommend any of their products due to their corporate policies on Lemons. The brand is great and the vehicles (other than mine) perform above average.
