"The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee (in part by Mercedes and later Fiat design engineers) is the first model by Chrysler to roll out under the new and improved Chrysler products to show the world they are worthy of staying in the game. Being under a lot of pressure from the federal Government funding to avoid bankruptcy I think they pulled they have a winner.
At age 50, I have owned many makes and models and to get the same comfort, quality and options offered by the competition, one would have to pay an additional 20 plus grand."
Pros: "Looks nice both inside and out, comfortable."
Cons: "Too many to list!!!"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"In February of 2011 I bought a V6 Overland and from day one there were issues. When coasting to a stop the brakes make a horrible humming noise. Jeeps answer: "its just a minor program problem with no update." Next was a complete failure of the A/C unit @ 9400 miles. Then at 12,000 miles the tailgate window hinge broke away from the glass because the adhesive melted from the sun. Next was the transmission banging into gear, that was another program problem. There are many other things that failed and I'm sure you can get the picture. I'm not one to buy extended warranties but in this case I "thought" it would be wise. The final straw was last week when my whole entire leather dash shrunk and wrinkled literally within 4 days when I left it in my driveway. That problem cost $3800 and of course its not warrantied. This vehicle has been in the shop a total of 24 times in the 33 months I've owned it. Unfortunately at month 24 it was one problem shy of falling under the Florida State Lemon law. I currently still have the jeep but in the process of selling it and never returning to Jeep. At this point its cheaper to cut my losses and go with a better quality manufacturer."
