Jeep Cherokee Reliability And Durability: Cons
2017 4dr SUV 184-horsepower 2.4L I4
9-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Now ive had it for 3 years and 44500 miles, here are my minor quality issues: Since Ive had it, Id say maybe 5 times there has been a transmission jump. Say when you roll up to a stop sign and accelerate. 1000 miles: passenger grab handle pulls down easily, like its not screwed in properly 5000 miles: random low windshield washer fluid light came on 6000 miles: front right plastic grill insert pops out, noticed it when parked in garage 12500 miles: front brake starts squeaking when cold 13650 miles: traction light comes on for a few seconds (dry conditions, driving straight) 15000 miles: short squeak when panoroof opens 18000 miles: cloth wrapping the A pillars have small tears 36500 miles: front right clip?? in sunshade drags in roof cover is opening, it will snap back in place though when done moving 40000 miles: panoroof starts rattling when open (very minor sound...notice it when you make yourself listen to it when radio is off) 42300 miles: dash message appears to service shifter, goes away after car is parked and started again full 2017 Jeep Cherokee review
