TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearComment
2014 The current generation Grand Cherokee had a fairly rough first year, and the 2014 refresh also appears to have added some glitches. If the past is any guide, though these problems should be ironed out soon, if they haven't been already. One notable problem area: the air suspension that adds to the Jeep's off-road capability can be a source of expensive (once out of warranty) repairs. full 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

I bought this vehicle brand new straight from the dealers show room its been seven months now and done only 4500 miles but I had to take it twice to the dealer for coolant leakage and water pump issues. full 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

Air suspension was problematic and took over a month at the dealer and 4 visits to finally get fixed. Also had problems with the radio and the memory settings getting wiped out. Occassional electric gremlins. full 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

With all the good things to say, one drawback I have is with some of the components that have failed so far. With only 46,000 kilometers (less than 30,000 miles) on it, it has had one front shock absorber fail, the water pump fail, a small engine coolant leak and three factory recall notices. As a retired mechanic, I realize with all the complicated equipment in today's vehicles, some items are bound to fail, but as this vehicle has not seen any offroad activity nor been driven hard, I am a little disappionted with all the repairs that it has needed. With that said, I STILL love my Jeep and think it is still better than its competition. full 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 You won't often see fuel economy among the reasons to buy a Jeep, and I wouldn't have it here without caveats in tow. EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway aren't anything special for a five-passenger vehicle. But they are impressive for a true midsize SUV, especially one that weighs over 5,000 lbs. The gas V6 is rated 17/24 (four mpg lower on each), the similarly torquey V8 14/20. The Touareg TDI manages about the same, 20/29. The gas-powered LR4, even with a supercharged V6 taking the place of a V8: 14/19. In suburban driving the trip computer typically reported averages from 18 to 21, similar to the even larger and heavier Mercedes-Benz GL350. On one run home from my son's school I managed just over 29, but this involved a lot of luck with traffic lights and a very light foot on the throttle. During a small amount of highway driving the trip computer averages were inexplicably no better than in town. Maybe the weather conditions weren't favorable, as I've never fallen so short of an EPA rating before. Worth noting: diesel tends to cost at least as much as premium unleaded gas, and usually costs significantly more. So while mpg improves, fuel cost per mile doesn't improve as much, sometimes not nearly as much. full 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

Poor fuel economy was expected, so it's not a big complaint. Our V6 4x4 Grand Cherokee is rated at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. We get about 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Ourair suspension package came with full-time four wheel drive, which probably doesn't help fuel economy. I would like to get at least 20 mpg in the city, but perhaps I will shell out the additional $4500 for the diesel engine next time, or maybe there will eventually be a hybrid option. full 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

Obviously, the fuel economy is poor. You'll have to compare the Jeep SRT with the German equivalents to figure out just how poor, but suffice to say, you'll be getting less than 12 MPG everywhere you go and buying Super Premium Unleaded on every fill. full 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

We purchased our Overland model in Oct. '15 and while we really like everything, the seats cause our legs to cramp and go to sleep. We have had others drive it as well and they have the same problem. It has the heated and ventilated leather seats. We drove my...
