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

2012 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.6L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
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
2012 4dr SUV 360-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
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
2012 4dr SUV 360-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
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
