2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude 3.6L V6 from North America
A fun and sporty SUV with great looks and good performance
Fuel pump relay started randomly failing around 50k, but a recall was done to fix that issue (basically if you hit the push button start, it will turn over and not start, but if you hit it again it will start). Intermittent issue.
A few other dealer covered recalls regarding the vanity mirror wiring and the alternator, but all items have been fixed by the dealer and covered by Chrysler.
Haven't had anything else go wrong with it besides needing brakes, but that is a wear item and anyone bashing on a car for the brake pads wearing out is a moron.
Not sure why others have reviewed this vehicle so negatively. They must have ignored the required service or beat the car to death...
I have had around 90k trouble free miles.
This Jeep has been a great vehicle. It's AWD all the time and we get 26 MPG on the highway, which is pretty good for an almost full size SUV with AWD and a 300hp V6.
The interior fit and finish is fantastic. The leather wrapped dash and the materials they used make it look very, very nice. Comparable to something out of a Mercedes Benz (I know this first hand).
The V6 is smooth and the shifts are crisp. Handling is fantastic for a vehicle of its size and the ride is pretty smooth as well. It doesn't seem to sacrifice comfort for better handling.
This is the Altitude edition, so it has a sunroof and heated/power leather seats, and the 20" black painted wheels with black grille and accent pieces. It's a very mean and sharp looking SUV.
This is the first Jeep I have owned (and still own) and certainly won't be the last.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
