  • Overland - Interior - HORRIBLE - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By -

    This is a buyer beware situation. The leather dash on the Overland Jeeps is horrible and has been for multiple years. I own a 2013 Overland and the dash is completely coming undone. If you are out of base warranty, the extended coverage (even the best one) will not cover this repair. The cost to fix this is right at $1,900.00.

  • Love my Jeep - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    The only issues that I've had are several cracked windshields from driving on the interstate to work. It seems any tiny chip resulted in a huge crack along the entire windshield. Replaced once on a Friday and was cracked again the following Monday. The DVD player that I was so excited about will only play sound when the vehicle is in motion. I realized this when I tried to play a movie for a fussy toddler during a long trip. :( I mean who is gonna park and watch a movie while your vehicle is running??

    The worst car that I every bought in my 36 year driving career. I have talked four people out of getting this car already and will continue to do so. Not comfortable, little driver seat that feels like an oversized toddler car seat, dangerous to drive because of limited visibility through side rear windows, steering controls broke three times and the car does not stop quickly in the snow. I almost got into a accident this past winter because the car did not stop and I ran into an intersection. The price for the car is reasonable but you pay for what you get. I have not gotten any positive help from the Chrysler Corporate Office and they only "pass the buck." Stay away!!! Thank you.

  • Love this truck! - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By -

    Originally leased the GC but after a year went ahead and bought it because I liked it so much. Use it to camp and tow jet skis as well as drive to work. Have not had any issues other than some window rubber started to come out on the back doors which dealer replaced. Yes there have been a number of recall issues but none have actually happened to my truck. I for one am glad that they are owning up and taking care of their customers so well. Only regret is not getting the 4X4 version.

  • Excellent SUV for the price! - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By -

    Picked up a JGC Overland Summit edition just last week. This is probably one of the best SUVs for the price in it's class. The Overland Summit trim level is fully loaded with all kinds of technology and features and competes with the likes of the BMW X5, Merc M class, and the Audi Q7 all for several thousands less. The fit and finish both inside and out is perfect, the ride quality is great especially with the quadra lift air suspension, the tech inside competes with the luxury foreign brands although the UConnect interface does look a bit date but very easy to use. The 5.7L V8 engine has plenty of power for this beast but is very thirsty and I'm only averaging about 13.8 MPG.

  • 6th Grand Cherokee each keeps getting better - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By -

    The Grand Cherokee has been a quality built SUV since my first one in 1996 with no serious issues to deal with. My 2013 is a Laredo X which has the hemi, the 9 speaker sound system, and all the bells and whistles slightly short of the Limited edition. It drives and handles like a champ for an SUV, the gas mileage is challenge but to have the hemi power it is well worth it. I would highly recommend this model jeep since I have had 6 of them!

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk - 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By -

    The JGC Trailhawk is a limited edition Laredo with exclusive features. It does have the 5.7 HEMI. There isn't anything that makes it drive differently than a regular Grand Cherokee. We found this rare Jeep on the dealer lot for $8000 off. What a deal! It has a really smooth ride from the air suspension. With rugged off-road tires, it still has a really quiet, smooth ride. The seats are big, but firm. However, they're really comfortable. Its cargo space is good for luggage even with the seats up. The interior is well-put together with high quality materials, and many are soft to the touch. We had 0 problems with the electronics, the engine, and the air suspension. We had it for 9 months.
