Pros: Smooth ride, good suspension, great power, excellent room front and back seats, premium look and feel, excellent cabin lighting, and wonderful driver assist/rear parking camera.
Cons: Voice command system is sadly terrible. speaking in a clear and consistent voice, i have found it impossible to "call home" or any derivation without the computer randomly finding other numbers. As well, i have attempted to use an Ipod, Ipad, Android ba
Summary: With a smooth ride thanks to the soft but responsive suspension, and a HEMI V8 that provides more than enough power, I really love the ride of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Living in Costa Rica, the roads are terrible and I test my Jeep every day just getting to work and always find myself smiling at how well it handles, how comfortable it keeps you feeling over difficult terrain, etc. The upgrades are first class and make the 4x4 feel like a luxury car. However, on the downside, the voice command system is sadly terrible. Speaking in a clear and consistent voice, i have found it impossible to "call home" or any other saved name/number without the computer randomly choosing some other numbers. Literally a fail 100 times out of a 100, there is no utilizing it at all. As well, I have attempted to use an Ipod, Ipad, Android based phone, Windows7 based laptop to load music and pictures to the 30GB hard drive and have not been able to do so. Whether utilizing USB, Bluetooth or Aux jack, trying mp3, mp4, m4a for music and .jpg for pictures, it just doesn't work. Thus, my one very significant disappointment is the onboard computer that navigates voice and media/entertainment, as this was a very large selling point for me in making the decision to purchase this vehicle, hence my decision to reduce my rating my half a star on this alone. In fairness, all devices play just fine through the system, including via bluetooth, but it doesn't negate that the hard drive is meaningless or that you have to speak out phone numbers by number instead of saved names. I would buy the vehicle again though hope they provide an upgrade/system fix for the voice/entertainment system.
Thanks for your submission!
