Editor's Overview

With new refinements, the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues its march toward becoming a luxury contender. Yet this 5-passenger SUV still boasts impressive off-road capability. With sharp looks, a refined interior and engine choices ranging from a frugal 3.0-liter diesel to a pavement-ripping 475-horsepower V8, there's a Grand Cherokee for just about any SUV buyer.

Nice looking vehicle that keeps its value well and will never go out of style.

I absolutely love my Jeep grand Cherokee. I do not think there is anything I do not love about it! Other than the fact it is a very nice looking car it has everything inside you need. I especially love the starter on the key fob for those cold mornings I need to warm up my car. I just press the button from inside my house about 10 minutes before I need to leave for work. Depending on how cold it is outside my care will automatically turn on my heated seats and adjust the temperature inside the vehicle to make sure it is warm when I enter it. Gas mileage is great for an SUV. Seriously there is not anything I do not love about my car.

Jeep grand Cherokee 2015 - not what I dreamed of.

The grand Cherokee was always one of my dreams car. The first year was perfect, then I started to have trouble with it, and the dealership could would always say it was fine. Whenever I was going at certain speed and then break, it would pull really hard. Then, started having trouble with the front seats squeaking and with the sponge from the back seat, took it like 5 times to the dealership because of this. Then, the passengers window sometimes wont work. . . And as always the dealership says it has nothing and that it works perfectly. Really love this SUV, but, the dealership is a mess.

What I love about my Jeep Grand Cherokee

I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I opted for the leather interior and heated seats, which provide great comfort for my family. It has great gas mileage for an SUV, in my opinion. I average 20 MPG. Love the sport shifting and 4WD capabilities. The interior is a bit small for my family of 5. Some of my favorite features are the rear back up camera, Bluetooth and Siri features, remote start from key fob, outlet plug which comes in handy for outdoors or camping adventures, memory seat position for the driver's seat, and the rear and side view dimming mirrors

Engine And Engine Cooling > Engine > Gasoline > Turbo-charger Oct 18, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 18, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17E061000
Summary:
Accessible Technologies, Inc. (ATI) is recalling certain ProCharger Superchargers, model numbers AB037A-100, AB037A-100P, and A037A-100B, sold for installation on 2012-2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and SRT vehicles. The supercharger mounting bracket may contact and damage the ABS line, possibly resulting in a brake fluid leak.
Consequence:
A brake fluid leak may lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
ATI will notify owners and will replace the supercharger brackets, free of charge. The recall began on December 12, 2017. Owners may contact ATI customer service at 1-913-338-2886.
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 > 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.
Suspension > Rear Jul 26, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 26, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V469000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles manufactured June 12, 2015, to June 20, 2015. The affected vehicles may be equipped with rear lower control arms that may have been incorrectly heat treated. This may cause the rear lower control arm to fracture.
Consequence:
If the rear lower control arm fractures it may result in a change in ride height, loss of rear end stability, and reduced braking capabilities, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the lower control arms, free of charge. The recall began July 29, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R38. Note: This supersedes Recall No. 15V-407.
Service Brakes, Hydraulic > Foundation Components > Disc > Caliper Mar 22, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 22, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V168000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles manufactured December 9, 2015, to January 14, 2016. In the affected vehicles, the left front brake caliper may crack due to being made from an incorrect material.
Consequence:
A cracked brake caliper may lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front left brake caliper and depending on its casting date, replace it, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 12, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S16.
Power Train > Automatic Transmission > Control Module (tcm, Pcm) Apr 24, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 24, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V240000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles manufactured February 15, 2011, to November 27, 2014, and 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured July 16, 2012, to December 22, 2015. The affected vehicles, equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a monostable gear selector, may not adequately warn the driver when driver's door is opened and the vehicle is not in PARK, allowing them to exit the vehicle while the vehicle is still in gear.
Consequence:
Drivers thinking that their vehicle's transmission is in the PARK position may be struck by the vehicle and injured if they attempt to get out of the vehicle while the engine is running and the parking brake is not engaged.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software to mitigate the risk of vehicle rollaway, free of charge. The recall began on June 24, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S27. Note: On October 19, 2016 Chrysler identified some previously repaired vehicles did not receive the complete software updates. Chrysler will renotify the affected owners, and dealers will update the software again.
