Quality, Versatile, comfortable, smooth ride!

I absolutely love this Jeep! It drives so smooth! It is very quick to go and the gas mileage is pretty fair considering it is such a large vehicle! Some Jeeps are hard to get a quality visual while driving but this Jeep has excellent frame angle so you can see clearly no matter which direction you are looking. It is comfortable on the inside, very spacious! So much room in the back and trunk! I like that I can take the top down in sections. If I do not want the entire top off I can take just the part above the drive if needed!

It is very helpful in getting you through Michigan winters.

I've had it for a year and I'm pretty happy with it. It drives over bumps smoothly which is important in our area with bad roads and it was awesome in the winter, I didn't feel it slide at all in the snow and ice I had to drive through. It does have kind of a weird jerk to it when you take your foot off the gas to slow down though. I don't know if that is normal for this kind of car, but as long as it doesn't cause any problems later on, it's not a big deal. Overall it has been very dependable and I am glad I purchased it.

Jeep grand Cherokee, delay on the Bluetooth and air conditioning.

The only problems I have with my car is that the air conditioning has a delay turning on. So once I turn my car on, there’s a 30 second delay when I turn my air on. In addition, the radio’s Bluetooth has a delay as well. Same type of deal, it takes a little bit for the Bluetooth to kick in and start playing music. Sometimes, it even takes 2 minutes for it to connect. Other than that, it works great. The performance is great!! It is a very reliable car. I have had very little issues with it.

Report Receipt Date:

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:

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.
