2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4dr SUV

360-horsepower 5.7L V8 8-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range

32240 mi Noise/slight vibration from front end,I suspected cv joint as front wheels were tight in jacked up trial, but turned out to be drivers side wheel bearing. Had been making noise for at least 10K km, slowly getting worse, had checked for hot hubs after highway driving but always seemed cool so surprised it was bearing. 
9200 mi The right and left rear shocks were leaking oil. They were replaced under warranty. 
12000 mi Air suspension module "got freaked out" (quoting mechanic) and needed to be re-flashed. Vehicle would not lift or lower. Jeep's back end was at off-road height and front end was at park height. Re-flash seems to have fixed it for now. 
13700 mi Air suspension experienced same issue (nose in park height and rear up in air). Reflash of module did not fix issue and case opened with manufacturer. Bad fuse replaced. Air suspension now working properly. 
21080 mi Replaced noisy RF wheel bearing.

Car pulled hard to right and steering wheel was off center. There is a TSB out to repair this. It was applied and realigned. So far so good. 
24300 mi

US $20
Michelin Latitude tires already showing choppy wear on outer edges despite rotation every 6k miles, and conservative driving style. I asked dealer to check 4 wheel alignment and they said all was in spec. 
35800 mi Steering rack had to be replaced due to large fluid leak. 
1300 mi Rear shock leaking. Problem is part on back order with no ETA and 106 orders ahead of me! Shock is marked KYB. Surprising considering I have had both car and bikes with KYB suspension that worked very well. 
26000 mi excessive power steering noise, parts replaced 
23000 mi

US $100
pump for the air ride system failed and was replaced under warranty 
29339 mi

US $255
Not sure if this belongs in suspension, but an alignment and wheel balancing was performed due to noticeable steering wheel shaking at highway speeds. The problem persists (albeit to a lesser degree) after repair, so it's likely due to the cheap off-brand tires the previous owner put on it.

Warning message that vehicle had a "suspension problem" and needed to "immediately" be returned to the Jeep dealer. We were told "a suspension (ride height control) module has failed." A new module is on order but will not arrive at the dealership until Tuesday, 10 October. We picked up our car today, 6 October, because my wife and I are flying to Hawaii on 9 October. We'll have the module replaced after returning to Utah in late December. (We were told the module will be replaced under the dealer's "LandCar Warranty" that was added to the price of the Grand Cherokee when we bought it new on 21 March 2014. We have a $100.00 deductible on the "module" and labor for replacing it. 
34000 mi

US $200
Ride height control module replaced. We have an extended warranty on the Jeep. We paid the deductible, which was $200.00. The dealership, Larry H. Miller Jeep of Provo, Utah, had the car for a week (related in part to a 3 day weekend). They furnished my wife with a Jeep Renegade---and, surprise of surprises, they did not charge her for the "rental" car! The exact odometer reading as of 28 February 2018 is: 35,250 miles. This mileage is still valid as of 2 April 2018, as we've been on Molokai since the evening of 28 February. 
27000 mi Quadralift II pump was replaced under warranty. 
55000 mi Air suspension system intermittently will not work. Diagnosed as a cowling that needs repair, allowing water & dirt to foul a sensor. Referred to a dealer for body work. Repair not yet done.

Noticed left rear shock was leaking, apparently leaking for some time. Dealer didn't tell me during previous visit. Called and set up another appointment. I said "one of my shocks is leaking". Received automatic email from dealer which stated "customer states left rear shock is leaking". Dealer read my mind! Extended warranty covered cost after $100 deductible, but would only replace ONE shock. I thought these had to be replaced in pairs! I'm done with Chrysler and Wickstrom Jeep in Barrington, IL. 
25000 mi Around 0 degrees outside. Got "Service Air Suspension System Immediately" error message when I started the engine. Scheduled a trip to the dealer. When I showed up they said "moisture in air suspension froze", "to be expected given the weather", "nothing they could do", but "still safe to drive". I sure wish they would have told me that over the phone and saved me the trip. 
23500 mi Sway bar mounts had deteriorated and were causing vibration noise inside the vehicle when driving over bumps. 
22300 mi Dealer replaced air compressor for air suspension under warranty. Issue was that vehicle said, "Service Air Suspension Immediately," and the suspension would no longer raise or lower. 
34000 mi Power steering system was leaking. Dealer found upon inspection and repaired under warranty. Replaced rack and pinion because seals not sold separately. 
3000 mi Rear load leveling shock absorbers had to be replaced.

Primary reason for repair was noted loud clunking noises in front suspension and tendency to wander down the road. Determined to probably be a failed control arm bushing.

Power steering pulley had cracked - previous owner's shop had reused it when it was a one-time use pulley.
