jeep  grand cherokee   2012  Casey S. AGOURA HILLS, CA 06/30/13 1.00 I originally purchased a 2011 Grand Cherokee, but after a few months of constant problems with stalling, the dealer replaced it with a 2012 (I had to pay the difference!) I have had the 2012 for almost a year now and it has been nothing but problems. The radiator hosed keeps leaking, it's been replaced several times. The sunroof leaks and has now caused stains on the interior ceiling. The navigation system freezes constantly, I had to drive without a unit from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Most importantly, the engine light turns on constantly, the car stalls constantly, ands then the engine goes into safe mode. Same problem as the Lemon 2011. I am currently in the process of attaining a lawyer to return the car. The dealer refuses to acknowledge that the car has the same problems, and changes the diagnosis codes constantly. They also refuse to look at the car if I arrive at the service center without an engine light on (sometimes the engine light turns off while driving), this way they show the car has only been in the shop 3 times instead of seven! Thanks Chrysler for screwing your loyal customers.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011  Agatha C. TROY, MI 06/28/11 4.00 Have driven Jeep Grand cherokees for 12 yars, got a 20011 in January and what a pain. Repeated falure on remote entry and start, cannot trust it to work all of the time; dealer has had it 6 weeks, not at root cause yet. Had to call Chrysler Roadside Assistance tnight when it failed and was told they would only tow car to dealer and I was on my own to get home. Unbelievable  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011  Chuck B. SAN FRANCISCO, CA  03/14/11 5.00 Super smooth and quiet to drive. Performs extremely well through deep snow and slippery surfaces. The interior finally feels like a quality car, as compared to previous model years. The adaptive cruise control works so well that I'll never buy another car without it.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011  Derek  K. TAMPA, FL  03/13/11 1.00 brothe just bought this car and it overheated with 2k miles. Major engine damage. No warning.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011  Chris L. WHEAT RIDGE, CO 12/03/10 n/a Locking , unlocking with key fob or touch controls erratic and at times cannot enter car without metal key. Also cannot lock without metal key. Turn on main heat/ac control and windshield heater goes on. Also, Push for interior only vent and AC goes on while heater running. This car is a mess electrically/electronically. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011  Kelly L. ATLANTA, GA 11/16/10 5.00 I have had my Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland since July now and love driving it everyday. The vehicle handles great and having the V8 I love the power available no matter my current speek. The interior is clean and high in quality. I have noticed there is no where to place keys or other small items in the middle console/shifting area unless placed in the cup holders. I wish there was some raised edge on each side to prevent items from falling off and betweeen the seats. The technology in the car matches the best offered from any of the Foreign luxury class brands and IT ALWAYS WORKS unlike prior Lexus and Audi models I owned. This is a fun versatile vehicle with quality looks and quality finishes.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007  Eileen F. PORT WASHINGTON, NY  06/16/10 3.00 I have about 40,000 miles on my Jeep. Today the "oil change" cost me $2000. Seems way out of line.

Windshield: numerous knicks, probably from windstorm. Tires: badly cupped, wrong size (635 vs 645), had to replace at 20K.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007  Charles A. EARLYSVILLE, VA  05/05/08 n/a HVAC has failed for the 2nd time in 15000 miles. Dealer is replacing the heater module as we speak. Torque converter engages and disengages constantly in traffic. The engage - disengage - downshift - upshift - reengage ---- sequence is continuous and right in the middle of normal driving functions. It is annoying on a car this good. On engagement of the torque converter, the engine lugs, stumbles and misses. This condition worsens in winter with development of a little carbon in the cylinders and clears after a run at highway speed for an hour or so. Dealer cannot diagnose. No flags are set by the OBDII.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007  Robert C. FLORHAM PARK, NJ  04/15/08 n/a Similar electrical system issues on my vehicle seem to have been resolved by replacement of iginition switch. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007  John G. SEBASTIAN, FL  03/22/08 4.00 I love my Grand Cherokee, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat, I don't care what Consumer Reports says, the Jeep is a great vehicle, I've had four Jeeps, and have had nothing but praise for all of them. Consumer Reports mag. doesn't live on a daily basis with the cars they test, what could be better than info from an owner. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007  Tim H. DECATUR, IL 12/28/07 3.00 Blind spots caused by the wide rear roof pillars are excessive/unsafe.

The are situated over a large steel curved bar above the engine . An engine which is very hot at operating temperature. The plastic outlets become very brittle and eventually break off. 
jeep  grand cherokee   2006  Iris C. BRIDGEPORT, CT  08/20/11 2.00 Stalling problem while driving scary to drive and dealer cant find the problem having more than one diagnostic which means spending more money trying to find the problem and the problem still there,not fair. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Jeff  M. LYNCHBURG, VA  07/07/11 4.00 Overall very good @ 54K miles, but I do have a problem with passenger window being possessed, opens for no reason! 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Ken S. PEMBINA, ND 02/08/11 3.00 Have had air bag light on dash for some time;get dealer to clear the code and within a couple days light comes back on.Will driver side air bag work properly in a collision?

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  EILEEN S. AVON, CT  07/07/09 5.00 Second time replacing the solenoid component.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Jerry M. DUNCANSVILLE, PA  11/28/08 3.00 Over the last 2 months, the car would make a strange sound from what seems like the L side of the front of the car, the gauges would stop and the car would shut off. After drifting off the road and shutting the car off and re-start the car the gauges began to work and the car would run normally. The check engine symbol remained on. The Jeep dealer could not determine what was causing this problem. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Peter & Marilyn G. BEMIDJI, MN 10/28/08 1.00 Transmission has not shifted correctly since the day the vehicle was purchased. Dealer cannot or will not correct the problem. When the vehicle is not under load, and the transmission attempts to shift up at approx. 35-40 miles per hour, the transmission free wheels and then either skips a gear, or goes into the next gear with a thud. A previous Jeep we owned had the transmission rebuilt twice (reverse and overdrive went out when the temperature got down around minus 30 degrees) and then the transmission was replaced. The 2001 Jeep we owned went back under the Lemon Law, it had 7 power steering units and the dealer could not find out what was causing the problem. Some "lucky" person bought the Jeep at a dealer auction in Minneapolis. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Andrew W. ,   10/24/08 3.00 Mine has just caught fire - electrical fault, I believe. has anyone had anything similair? 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Wendi S. PERRY, GA  10/15/08 4.00 I love my car! I am just having afew problems with my electrical system. My headlights kep blinking and the njust shutting off on their own. The lights on my radio and air condition dials are dimming out. I have only had my car for a year. Besides that I lOVE my car. It rides GREAT! 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Dan L. LITTLETON, CO  09/19/08 1.00 The front end either came out of the factory with problems or was damaged prior to being sold to me as new. At 17K miles needed front wheel bearings, rotor and pads and aftermarket lower control arms. Still can't get in proper alignment 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Audrey M. HALETHORPE, MD  07/25/08 1.00 I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with a Hemi. It's 43,000 miles and the piston broke requiring a new engine. My car is always up to date on service and never driven off road. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Leon M. HONOR, MI  07/11/08 4.00 Entry could be easier for tall people and mileage could be a couple of MPG better. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  J H. WILMINGTON, NC 07/19/07 3.00 2006 GC Limited 5.7 Hemi, on several occasions the vehicle electrical system would turn off\on\flicker on and off as though there was an electrical short. If I turn the lights on 'Auto' the symtoms would generally go away. The dealership is unable to identify the issue. It seem to be during the hours of 'Dusk'. I'm thinking the 'Light Sensor' may be going bad. Dealership is clueless. I just live with the issue. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Frank E. HATTIESBURG, MS  06/14/06 5.00 Jeep has built a wonderful vehicle with the 5.7 multi-displacement Hemi 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Michael T. STATEN ISLAND, NY 05/25/06 1.00 cheap plastic interior,noisey ride,many problems,my 2000 had much better interior materials,better seats etc, would not buy another jeep,sold my 2006 in 7 months. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  Jason S. MURRELLS INLET, SC 02/05/06 4.00 Good all around so far. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006  K W. TAMPA, FL  02/04/06 1.00 I lemon lawed the 2006 jeep grand cherokee because all the lights in the dashboard would go off and the engine would shut down. Warning lights would then come on. Sometimes while driving at high speeds on the interstate. Very dangerous. Chrysler and the dealer could have cared less. Chrysler said to call the dealer and the dealer said to call Chrysler. Also, the jeep was never sealed properly on the passenger side (at the factory) and when we had a heavy rain, the entire jeep flooded. Had an inch of standing water on the floor boards. Happened on a Friday night. Dealer - Jerry Ulm in Tampa, FL (now closed and reopened in Pasco County, FL) made me wait until Monday to bring it in as "body shop" closed. Dealer then left jeep for 2 weeks (wet and molding) until pieces of new carpets came in for patchwork replacement job. This was all after having the jeep only several months. Yes, MONTHS. Horrible experience. Ultimately, the dealer finally found a loose ignition switch. When the keys would move (from vibration while driving), it would turn it to the off position. I believe this is what was causing the vehicle to shut down. Chrysler should know about this loose ignition switch problem by now as I lemon lawed the vehicle back in 2008. After a 3 hour panel hearing in front of the Attorney General, Chrysler (and their attorney) lost and Chrysler had to pay my loan off and give me all my money back and I gave them their molded rusty dangerous vehicle back. I turned it right back in to Jerry Ulm (now in Pasco). The managers there were awful and could have cared less about the safety, the mold, etc. Manager told me once you drive off the lot, it is your problem. Well, now it is his. HORRIBLE. Good Luck to all who have this vehicle.  
jeep  grand cherokee   2005  Melissa  P. DUNNELLON, FL  05/22/12 5.00 I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee what else is there to say :) 
jeep  grand cherokee   2005  Robert M. HAINES CITY, FL 10/31/11 4.00 have blown headgasket 
jeep  grand cherokee   2005  Randy P. LOGAN, UT  08/23/11 1.00 Broken door handles
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Larry B. INDIAN HILLS, CO 05/15/11 3.00 Very hard seats and no side bolsters to support while 4-wheeling. Poor legroom, esp for the driver. Main key module interface went out, after many replacement keys, they replaced the in car module and it has been fine. 1 cyl. head went bad..replacement was bad. second replacement was bad, those were all pre-assembled "kits" from Chrylser; Dlr ordered all parts separate and assembled themselves, that worked. An extended warranty is almost mandated due to Chrysler/Jeep quality problems. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Ed B. AUSTIN, TX 03/14/11 5.00 Can't believe all the ranting about the 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited. Bought mine in 2007 with 34k miles. It has been back to the dealer once for a brake sensor problem that was covered under the Jeep extended warranty. I couldn't be happier. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Jo W. WOOSTER, OH 12/15/10 3.00 Have never liked all the blind spots w/this model. Twice, last week we were at stop light, totally stopped with foot securely on brake when Jeep accelerated and jumped forward. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  John M. ,   11/11/10 1.00 Series of bits and pieces breaking down. Computer, transmission and power sterring pump. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Margaret K. BOCA RATON, FL 11/01/10 4.00 This is my 4th Jeep since 1981. I love the styling and reliability.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Asheena W. CASTLE HAYNE, NC 11/04/09 2.00 The dashboard lights and headlights flicker at the same time for no apparent reason. It appears to be an electrical problem. It does this fairly frequently. Also, when it rain the water drips into the jeep from the handle on the driver's side. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Manuel M. MIAMI, FL  10/12/09 3.00 first problem that I have with my GC. It won't start so I had to tow it to the dealer 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Art I. MONTGOMERY, TX  08/16/09 2.00 Door handles 3 out of 4 broken look like poor design sress from cable breaks plastic. Dealer says that whole door panel must be replaced at a cost of $545.00 parts and labor out of waranty. At Edmunda Car Space this problem has bee reported since November 2007 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Stewart C. ,   08/04/09 3.00
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Brent R. KEOKUK, IA 06/21/09 2.00 horn keeps tuning on for no reason, warped rotors, and skid plate keep breaking on pavement on passenger front side 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Don K. WAKEFIELD, RI 05/20/09 1.00 3.7 6 cyl with nag1 mercedes trans extremely poor combo with numerous problems. anti-locks electrical/mechanical problems, very poor fit & finish inside and out, cheap plastic dash in a 30 grand car? Might as well have bought the hemi for better gas mileage than the 6 cyl. The car I had waited to buy all my life is just one big disappointment. Chrysler cut one corner to many and now they're the recipient of the final slicing and dicing themselves. Say goodnight Gracie - please turn out the lights.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Hans L. FORT LAUDERDALE, FL  05/10/09 3.00 best car in the world
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005  Dave N. RAYMORE, MO 05/02/09 4.00 If you choose to own a Jeep there are several things you should know: 1 Buy a total care extended warranty, shop on line for it and then use the price to get your local jeep dealer to get close to the best price. 2. Before you drive through water have a mechnic extend the breather tube for both axles. Stock is too short and water will get into the bearings. Later you will have gear noise, but it is the bearings that have begun to rust, because water got into the breather tubes 3 know that you can purchase an extended warranty up until your original warranty expires. I bought an extended warranty on a 2005 GC Limited when it had 35627 miles on it, during the 3rd year. Now everything is covered until 60K miles. I could have spent more to go to 100k but at 59k I can purchase an additional warranty. Jeeps are unmatched in tracktion, and fun to drive, but protect your self with a warranty. I hope this helps someone
