My experience has been this car is unreliable.
A tire literally blew up while driving the car on the interstate. And yes, the tire pressure was correct I had checked it that day before I left for vacation. I have also had to replace the battery 3 times, and I am going in tomorrow because the battery light is coming on again. The latest battery was installed 2.5 months ago.
I cannot wait to get out of my lease. I will never buy a Jeep again because I cannot trust it to be reliable. I have been late to work twice and I have had to get a rental both times, which I had to pay for out of my pocket. The gas mileage is terrible, yes I know it's a Jeep. Two positives: it's cute, and it handles really well off road and on snowy roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
