Editor's Overview

The Jeep Cherokee is an all-American brand unto itself, one that holds special meaning for Jeep fans. These days, the Jeep Cherokee combines serious off-road capability with a choice of 4-cylinder or V6 engines, a 9-speed automatic transmission, three different 4-wheel-drive systems, and head turning style – all while remaining composed around town.

It is a 4 wheel drive and very sporty looking.

I like the fact that it is s 4 wheel drive. I am able to change stations in the radio from the steering wheel. I am able to fold the backseat down so that there is a larger storage space. I do not like that if 1 tire had something wrong I have to buy 4 new tires. That can be very costly. There is also a blind spot that does not give you a view if there is a car in that spot. Therefore, I always check to make sure I am in the clear to change lanes. I would have liked the feature to see what is on the side, kind of like the backup camera. Overall, I like the way it drives and also great when you have to accelerate quickly.

I amenities throughout entire vehicle for all passengers to utilize.

Bonus features we love are the heated steering wheel and the heated seats -especially those they included for passengers in the back. We also like the ability to use our cell phone through the car which allows for hands free driving. Excellent winter driving-handles well. Downfalls are maintenance lights continue to go on when no problems exist. For example, check tire pressure, wonder washer fluid low. Also, the front passenger cup holder located on the door is on a slant which does not allow full drinks or still creates high chance of spills.

Jeep Cherokee comfort and style.

I love my Jeep. It has plenty of space to pack in big items, I used it during a move. Also it is a great family car. The front leg room does get a little impaired when you have a rear facing bucket car seat in the back, but it is not too bad. The car has been very reliable. I love the seat warmers and auto start in the winter, they are a must have. I love my panoramic sunroof and ventilated seats in the summer. My only issued is there is not a whole lot of pickup in the v6 but it is fine once you get used to it.

Structure > Body > Hatchback/liftgate Jun 21, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 21, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V393000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 4, 2013, to February 18, 2015 and equipped with a Power Liftgate option. In the affected vehicles, water may enter the Power Liftgate Control Module and cause a high resistance short circuit in the module.
Consequence:
A short circuit in the liftgate control module may result in a fire.
Remedy:

16V590000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Jeep Cherokee vehicles manufactured July 29, 2013, to February 5, 2016. The seat fasteners on the first or second row seats may not have been tightened to the proper torque specification.
Consequence:

Electrical System > Wiring May 16, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
May 16, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V332000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled to address a defect that could prevent the cruise control system from disengaging. If, when using cruise control, there is a short circuit within the vehicle's wiring, the driver may not be able to shut off the cruise control either by depressing the brake pedal or manually turning the system off once it has been engaged, resulting in either the vehicle maintaining its current speed or possibly accelerating.
Consequence:
If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the software, and perform a software flash on the engine or powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall began June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Note: Owners are advised to stop using cruise control until the software update has been performed. In the event that cruise control cannot be disengaged while driving, owners should firmly and steadily apply the brakes and shift the transmission to neutral, placing the vehicle in park once it has stopped.
Equipment Dec 20, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 20, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V824000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling various Dodge, Chrysler, and RAM vehicles equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button 'Pindicator' Fire Extinguishers. A list of the affected trailer models is available at: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RMISC-17V824-0103.pdf. These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable. For a full list of the affected fire extinguisher models visit: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RMISC-17E062-5427.pdf
Consequence:
If the fire extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a fire.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners instructing them to contact Kidde for a replacement fire extinguisher, free of charge. The recall began February 14, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403 or Kidde customer service service toll-free at 1-855-262-3540, or online at www.kidde.com and click on "Product Safety Recall" for more information.

Equipment > Electrical > Radio/tape Deck/cd Etc. Jul 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V461000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500, 2015 Chrysler 200, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger, 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, and Dodge Durango, and 2013-2015 Dodge Viper vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with radios that have software vulnerabilities that can allow third-party access to certain networked vehicle control systems.
Consequence:
Exploitation of the software vulnerability may result in unauthorized remote modification and control of certain vehicle systems, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify and mail affected owners a USB drive that includes a software update that eliminates the vulnerability, free of charge. Optionally, owners may download the update to their own USB drive from http://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/ or take their vehicle to a Chrysler dealer for immediate installation. In an effort to mitigate the effects of this security vulnerability, Chrysler has had the wireless service provider close the open cellular connection to the vehicle that provided unauthorized access to the vehicle network. This measure may not have been implemented on all vehicles and does not address access by other means that will be remedied by the software update. The recall began on August 25, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R40.

Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles manufactured October 1, 2014, to June 18, 2015. The affected vehicles may have a misrouted air conditioning suction/discharge hose.
Consequence:
If the line is misrouted, it may contact the exhaust manifold, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the routing of the air conditioning hose. Any hose that is misrouted will be replaced and installed correctly. This work will be performed free of charge. The recall began on November 23, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R57.

In the affected vehicles, water may leak into the Power Liftgate Control Module and result in a high resistance short circuit.
Consequence:
A short circuit in the module increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the module and connectors for corrosion, replacing the damaged components as necessary. The mastic shield will be removed and the module will be covered with a water shield. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on February 1, 2016.
