Editor's Overview

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the flagship model from the iconic SUV brand. As a 2-row, 5-passenger SUV, it competes on paper with midsize sport-utility vehicles like the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. But the Grand Cherokee is unique in its "Jeep-ness" -- that is, its purpose-built ability to go off-road.

Jeep gc limited is luxury for your daily life and the business class.

The Jeep is very comfortable to drive daily and on long trips. The leather interior feels nice and the heated seats throughout the vehicle (yes! driver, passenger and back seats all have heated seats). I use them after a long day at work to help my back pain. The Jeep has great amenities like Wi-Fi hotspot, Sirius XM with travel link, Uconnect, Bluetooth and 12v charging ports (you can charge a netbook or tablet). The Jeep really feels like it was made for business trips with all the connectivity it has available. It rides smooth and is fun to drive.

- Jess R

Kid-friendly. Great for road trips. Spacious, comfortable, stylish.

I absolutely love my Jeep. Smooth ride. Push to start feature and keyless entry are so convenient. The ability to override automatic engine stop is also nice. One downside is automatic 4WD. Living in a climate with frequent ice/snowfall, I would like to be able to control the 4WD feature. Another downside is the manual transmission turn on is on the steering wheel and can easily be turned on by accident, which could lead to permanent damage to the vehicle. Very sleek looking vehicle and very spacious! Climate control feature is also splendid!

- Mary H

Great mid-size suv with good gas mileage.

The size of the Grand Cherokee is perfect. I love the large trunk space and the fact that it sits high off the ground (at least to me). It gets great gas mileage and we've taken it on several road trips with no issues. The only thing that really bothers me is the automatic energy saving mode. It sounds like the car shuts off when it idles. It automatically restarts but it's very annoying. There is a button to disable it but the button has to be pressed each time you start up the vehicle. I'd never buy another vehicle with this option.

Report Receipt Date:

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.

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.

Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured May 15, 2015 to February 19, 2016. The brake transmission shift interlock solenoid may have a loose electrical connection which could result in a loss of solenoid function.
Consequence:
If the solenoid loses function, the transmission may lock in the Park or Neutral position when the vehicle comes to a stop, possibly rendering the vehicle disabled in traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shifter assembly, free of charge. The recall began on May 27, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S28.
