Defective mechanical issues

Power Transfer Unit for the 4x4 system is known to fail since 2014 models. This item is also found on other Jeep models. When this part fails, the only replacement part available will be used on new vehicles and are not available to replace on vehicles already sold. This part has a nation wide shortage and not available. Why would anyone buy a product, pay it off just to find yourself without a vehicle when something is defective and irreplaceable?
Stay away from Jeeps!!! Show details

Nest Jeep Owned

I have owned 3 Jeep Cherokees, and the longitude is by far the best. Totally reliable, having done 40,000 miles in 3 years without a single problem. This vehicle simply keeps on going. One important thing I always ensure that every year is a full service for the Jeep. It is economical, reliable, comfy to drive and at 6ft 4 I never get leg cramps or back ache that other vehicles give me. I once drove this vehicle over 500 miles with a 10 minute stop and it was a superb drive with ultra comfort. Mine is a 2015 Jeep 2.0 Diesel Longitude with 101,000 miles and I hope to get another 100,000 miles out of this ultra superb vehicle Show details

Powertrain failure at 32000 km

Automatic transmission failed on a drive from Canberra to Walcha. Car had only 32000 km on the clock. Car had not been abused or made to do extreme things. No towing or rough off road. Took jeep a month to work out the problem (not hard to work out - all you had to do is attempt to drive it). Jeep eventually agreed to replace the transmission and power train - but no parts available in Australia. Now waiting for parts to show up - will likely take months. Show details

Proven reliability

Had the car from new - now 13 years. In the time only wear and tear items replaced. Used in serious off road conditions and towing a boat. Despite that I am a careful and respectful driver eg still on original front brakes. Great vehicle. Show details

Just Expect Every Problem

It saddens me to read Jeep owner reviews that contain the same problems that I had on my 1998 Jeep Cherokee.

I just don't understand in this modern world how anyone can buy a Jeep knowing the feedback and reviews from sights like this and countless others around the world.

I too had the Jeep back to the dealer numerous times for issues.
Here are a few.....

Air conditioner regas 3 times.
Transmission rebuild twice.
Front and rear suspension went spongy after 2 years.
Paint fade to roof after 2 years.
Oil leaks everywhere on the engine.
Immobilized stopped working and jeep had to be towed back to dealer.

My only positive was getting $500 trade in at Mitsubishi.
Never ever again. Show details

I REGRET - I Bought a Jeep

Unreliable, expensive to fix, always something wrong with it and now they are discontinuing the Cherokee in Australia because hardly anyone is buying them which will not help any re-sale price. Am going to spend the $2000 to fix mine and trade it in with a Jeep dealer for anything but a Jeep. Don't feel I could sell it privately to some poor sucker. At least I am fixing mine, so if you buy mine from a dealer - it may work for a little while. Show details

Happy with this vehicle

2009 jeep cherokee CRD ltd. Great for towing and launching the boat. Excellent 4wd with good ground clearance. Open road we get 9.3 litres per 100km on a long family trip with 4 people in the car. very comfortable to drive and ride in on a long trip. Around home on windy steep terrain short trips 10.8 litres per 100km, I'm really happy with this vehicle. The only problem I've had is an occasional glitch in the central locking when it unlocks itself or won't lock. Seems to happen if the door closes on anything - like a car mat or blanket. Show details

Excellent value, smooth, powerful, comfortable, reliable

We bought this from the dealer in 2015. It had been their demonstrator. Other than tyres and servicing the only extra cost has been to replace the tyre pressure sensors. They each have an internal battery, and I think their battery's had gone flat with age. The plastic molding covering the transmission tunnel by the drivers foot kept flopping out of it's retainer until I strengthened it. That's it! Show details

Perfect car

Love my used Jeep Cherokee Limited 2015. Have it for more than 3 years and has 0 issues with it, with regular service. Only had to change the battery once, but it is normal for most cars. It is even cheaper than other SUV to boot! Not sure why? Will buy another Jeep if the finances permit for sure! Show details

Great Car, Jeep Cherokee KK

I bought this car as my previous car was only 2WD, and that from the front wheels which is not suitable for towing. I wanted to tow a caravan so I bought the Jeep Cherokee KK which is 4WD selectable, and its been excellent. Already had a tow bar, so just had to get an electronic brake control fitted and off I went.
The car tows well and has a good weight allowance for towing, but most of my driving is around about leaving the caravan in the caravan park and just exploring, it's super impressive and a smart looking vehicle to boot. Show details

Get a 2 inch lift and can't go wrong

Unstoppable in the sand on Moreton and Fraser Islands with a 2 inch lift and AT. Great style and motor is a V6 with plenty of Power. I use it as a daily commuter. After 10 years I've changed general stuff like radiator, Starter motor. I've owned bigger 4wds like T. Landcruiser, and N. Patrol but like this beast better. Goes like the V8 box Range Rover in the 80s without the electrical Probs. Very underrated vehicle. Show details

Hi All, I have just bought a 2009 Cherokee KK model. I am looking for a bull bar for it (there does not seem to be a lot around that suits the vehicle), and a new multimedia head unit and reverse camera. Has anyone found a good place to have that sort of work done, or at least from which to buy compatible parts? I am based in Canberra.
