2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7 hemi

Summary:

Never again

Faults:

Brake rotors warped just after 36K.

Trans cooler lines went just after 36K.

Electric window motor went bad at 20K.

Spark plugs need to be replaced at 30K; don't try this at home kids unless you want to lose a finger.

This is the 2nd Jeep I've owned new, and always have the same problems.

No more jeeps for me, no wonder people buy Hondas.

General Comments:

Very overpriced for what it is. Could have bought a German car instead.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

That's too bad about all the things that have gone wrong with your Jeep, but I would strongly recommend not buying a German car. That has been the worst mistake I have made. I have spent about $7,000 repairing my BMW in about a year and a half. In that $7,000, I have been stranded 3 times and have required a tow twice.

The tow truck operators get to know BMW's quite well; they are no. 1. Second place goes to... you guessed it, VW/Audi.

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7 Hemi

Summary:

Overpriced junk

Faults:

This car is rubbish. The remote start has never worked and Chrysler won't do anything to fix it other than install an after-market unit which is, in my opinion unacceptable. Avoid this brand at all cost.

Isolated case obviously! For some people, the first impression is the last. I agree that minor bugs can be annoying and tends to destroy objectivity. Perfection is my last concern, considering that the beast sports the stiffest construction of its category, the beefiest power-train, the AWD technology that most competitors clones. Above all, when behind the wheel, I can feel authenticity and heritage...

Go to another dealer and let them fix it, don't let a little problem vex you so much. The Grand Cherokee is a great car and superior to most of what's on the road.

Wait, the car is junk because the remote starter, which has nothing to do with the design of the car, doesn't work? C'mon!! That is a ridiculous assessment of a vehicle. With that mentality, you better start riding a bike to work or you'll drive yourself crazy complaining about every detail. I think offering an aftermarket unit is perfectly acceptable since most of them are way better than the factory installed units anyhow.

How about the inferior brake rotors that warp. It's been a problem for years and Chrysler has done nothing to fix that problem even after the "bailout". I replaced my warped rotors with better aftermarket ones and Jeep said they can't "help" me since I didn't use Jeep parts. Why would I put on stock rotors that warp?
