"The best yet"4.5 starson by jeepdoc
Pros: Comfortable ride/interior. What a luxury SUV should be. Roomy-my 7 foot 2 inch tall cousin can sit comfortably inthe driver's seat as can I (5'10") sit behind him in the second row (with the panoramic sunroof.Just looks darn good!Works well off road.
Cons: Wandering 5 speed tranny. Front passenger seatback separation-covered under warranty without question.
Summary: I bought my 2011 4x4 Limited in August 2011 with 4900 miles on the clock. It was the dealer's demo so there was some price savings that added to the overall goodness of the purchase experience. My selling dealer, Tyler Jeep in Niles Michigan, treated me very well and have been helpful since the purchase. Now, with 11000 miles on the clock, I am even more satisfied with the GC. It has done everything asked of it-on and off road. Mine does not have nav but, if the nav is as poor and difficult to use as in Chrysler's 300, I'll stick to paper and my TomTom. Bluetooth connectivity for our 4 phones was a breeze and actually works quite well. The cabin is a quiet and comfortable environment for 5 adults. We love the nice touches like reclining/heated rear seats. On road, the suspension soaks up irregularities like no toher vehicle I have owned in my 50 years. There is an absolute feeling of control when driving this vehicle. It is encouraging to see such a well built and thought out vehicle "imported from Detroit".
Two points on the downside: the transmission at low speeds often seems to be in the wrong gear-usually to high. This is probably a bow to fuel economy and can somewhat be remedied by choosing the sport setting. Also, I found that if you have the hill decent control turned on you will loose off the line punch when accelerating-turn it off! The seatback separation issue was minor but did give me a little pause with regard to quality control. This may ahve been a supplier issue because the part was on back order when I took the GC in to schedule the replacement. With the myriad of automobile choices available the Jeep Grand Cherokee fits my needs the best.
Thanks for your submission!
