A terrible waste of money
Transmission has loud Clunk when shifting from park to reverse.
Fuel pump check valve failure at 48000 miles.
Rear differential rebuilt at 45000 miles.
Various other minor items.
This SUV has performed quite poorly since I purchased it 6 months ago. It has been riddled with faults and problems, costing me and Jeep both considerable money and time. I owned a Nissan Pathfinder for 4 years prior to this vehicle, and never experienced any problems! This car is always getting service and never is fixed properly.
What else can I say, compared to the Pathfinder, this car has terrible fuel economy, poor handling, lousy air conditioning, and unimpressive ride.
I purchased this vehicle because I was considering buying a boat, and felt the Jeep would pull it well. I'm afraid to put a boat on the back of this thing now, as it may only compound the faulty manufacturing of this vehicle and create more issues.
DO NOT PURCHASE A JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE!!!
Unless you want to spend lots of money and time at your local dealer service department!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
