Jeep - Don't hold you back
Finally my dream comes true "I BOUGHT A JEEP" after had couple of SUV test drive me and wife finally decide we need a JEEP, we really enjoy this amazing machine, i strongly recommend who ever need to SUV with aggressive look. drive really smooth and we really like space and interior they have.
Comfortable Drive but a Few Niggles
Our Jeep Cherokee Limited KL with the sunroof is nicely appointed and is a very comfortable drive with great leather seats. The V6 engine is powerful enough and I love the hill assist.....no roll back on steep inclines. The stop-start function can be bothersome in school traffic and I really doubt there is a fuel saving benefit associated with it. You really have to think about the wear and tear on the engine etc when it’s constantly stopping and starting; hence I usually turn it off when driving. It would be better if the stop-start functi...on was off when the car is started and leave it up to the driver to actually turn the stop-start function on if they wanted it on. The heated seats in winter are very welcomed as are the air conditioned seats in summer. The boot space is a good size and I appreciate the full size spare tire in there......I can’t stand space saving tires.....they are not very reassuring if you want to take the car off road or in the countryside where tire dealers are limited. The only bummer with our Jeep is that there have been a few issues with squeaks, rattles and other noises coming from the rear seats and roof, which is quite annoying and is even more frustrating when the service department can’t isolate or fix the issues. And lastly, I still can’t work out what the flappy thing with toggles is that’s hanging off the rear seats in the boot??? It seems pretty useless and gets in the way when I want to load my shopping or the kids’ school bags.
Great Car and Keeps going if you look after it
Owned our KJ since 160000Kms used. 2.8 litre CRD She's been a solid workhorse, although plays up with the wife from time to time lol. We are at 250000kms and have done usual wear and tear repairs such as the timing belt, water pump Ball joints etc... Tows beautifully and we love it's aesthetics. We have a young one now and are looking at doing some camping trips in the near future and believe she'll old up for another 250000 if cared for. Would recommend if budget is of concern and you need a true 4WD that will go anywhere without breaking the ...bank. If you have a local mechanic who isn't afraid of troubleshooting unfamiliar turf you're home and hosed. If you only have fitters (Mechanics who guess the issue and replace unnecessary parts) in your town and no real mechanics don't buy a Jeep or European cars it will cost u a fortune. Stay Clear from a Jeep Dealership for repairs they have no idea. Ironic considering they sell the products. You'll love it we sure do :)
I'm getting on average 638 kms from full tank considering the weight and robust feeling I'm impresse
At first I didn't here many good reports about the jeep brand. But now I'm impressed the seating is very comfortable especially on long drives. I think the materials used are excellent. The road holding is very good on uneven sealed roads I don't go off road but I do think it would be quite capable if I did so
Great car and great customer service
This car is 5 stars for comfort and ease of driving. I’m so happy my Jeep. It’s spacious enough for the family and for our dog who rides in the back. We got our from
Berwick Jeep and would totally recommend this place. I knew this was the car for me
Has some issues
The car is comfortable to drive, however, there were annoying squeaks in the car that should not have been present in a $50k car, I persevered for a very long time before I found a mechanic who knew how to resolve the problem. I also have a non functioning 'stop start', I have taken the car for repair twice being told that the computer takes time (2weeks) to adjust once they 'repaired it' and it would be fine, however, it does not work and I'm sick of trying to get it repaired. The car is still under warranty. The tyres are also now needing rep...lacement, not sure if quality of tyres on the new car were up to scratch. It is a BIG shame because the car is a nice car. June 5th 2018 Update: Look out Jeep owners Whilst I love driving my Jeep......Ouch, look out Jeep buyers my Jeep has a problem with its transmission and gears It started making a fizzing noise. The car is nearly 3 years, old not even out of warranty, thank goodness! Be forewarned and forearmed!! I think the Jeep is a great car but possibly not the best quality workmanship or mechanics.

Lots of problems
Quality is very bad - my car is now on it's 3rd transmission, the air conditioner is unreliable and doesn't blow the temperature it's set to and the USB ports don't function sometimes. The interior is well laid out and the steering controls good. Note that you can only control the heated seats from the console.
Purchased in June 2015.

I Bought a Lemon
I bought this top of the range Cherokee and it has been nothing but problems. Continual driveline problems where engine / transmission warning light comes on and car goes into limp mode and becomes dangerous and undriveable. Just happened for the 4th time this week and got towed back to dealership. Not happy.... I bought a lemon. This lemon has been back to dealership for around 25-30 days so far for going into limp mode problems.
I love our Jeep! I've heard and read many reviews about Jeeps and how it does not compare to a typical Toyota SUV. However, the 2 are completely different market segments. We bought the Jeep 6 months back and it's been perfect. It's sleek and drives very well. The only negative is that there is a slight delay when changing gears from 1 to 2 but it's quite negligible. I would recommend this beauty to anyone.

The last proper Cherokee
Good, commanding driving position. The 3.7L V6 doesn't like being hurried but produces reassuring torque (if thirstily). The Limited trim level is plush. Heated seats are very effective, the AC is positively arctic and the stereo is excellent. Cargo space is ok, better with passenger seats down - they lie almost flat. Up front, legroom is a little cramped due to a fairly intrusive drivetrain tunnel and no rest pedal for the driver. The ride is truck-like, but that is expected from a body-on-frame 4x4. We like it. Would buy again.
Love my Jeep!
Had my Jeep for a few months now and it's going strong. Previous owner looked after it well and I plan on doing the same. Had a few adventures in it already and we're definitely learning to trust each other :-)
Looks wise - it's a brick! A tough looking 4x4 and though it may not appeal to all, it certainly hits the spot for many. It does look even better coated in a nice thick layer of mud too ;-)
Those complaining about fuel consumption from the 3.7L (and those comparing it to much smaller and lighter cars) - did you expect better? The d...iesel is definitely the way to go if you can get your hands on one with the tried and true Mercedes t/diesel and 5spd. The 3.7 V6 has been used in a few trucks/4x4s (Dodge Ram, Dodge Nitro, Dodge Dakota, several Jeeps and even a Mitsubishi!) and has proven to be a tough unit - albeit a petrol guzzler. Off road this thing is effortless and the torque down low coupled with the Selec-Trac 4x4 system makes it almost too easy. On road it actually handles better than other 4x4s I've driven, however on wet roads if you have a heavy foot you may want to engage 4x4! Very roomy, and at 6'4" I have no complaints there.
The worst car I've ever bought , expensive to run and repair
Awful to drive no take off up hills, noisy to drive and expensive to run and repair. Back seats very uncomfortable. In summer when it was very hot the back door would not open . The drivers seat had to be close to the under dash to reach the pedals so cramped.

Excellent touring car on and off road.
Very comfortable, handles well in city traffic and tight carparks. The diesel engine is strong and fuel economy is great, with a range of more than 750km on outback roads and up to 920km on sealed rural roads. The 18inch wheels with 55 profile tyres were a worry, but handle corrugated roads surprisingly well. Off road ability is amazing although the addition of Trailhawk wheels would allow better tyre choices for greasy off road work.
Dashboard layout is good, steering wheel controls work well and phone connection was a breeze compared to my...
Purchased my 2015 cherokee limited with extra sunroof in 2016. I had previously had a jeep compass 2013 and what an amazing up grade it was. The leather seatings and the controls. Push start keys. V6 engine is so impeccably smooth. Cant fault the car. Extra points for the heated seatings.
I am tradesman
Comes in few models
More features in hemi
Nice exterior look
Every thing perfect if u see in other hands
But eat huge amount of fuel because of heavy weight
Electronic problem is normal after few years
American made not rally for Australia because of fuel cost
I purchased a 2003 Jeep Cherokee Sport and loved it! Manual transmission was easy to drive. Great visibility with no blind spots. Could park it anywhere and was nice to drive on road. When it got real, it could climb the steepest and roughest hills off road with no dramas. Towed without a struggle and felt safe. Whilst it had a few issues mechanically, I did drive it 140 klm's every day and it rarely let me down. Even my mechanic said "She just keeps on going doesn't she!". I would definitely have another one.
i bought a jeep
after years of land rover spending 1000s I bought a jeep
about half the cost and better performance so glad I did this is simply the car 4x4 I have ever owned
do listen to all the knockers and but a jeep you will be amazed at the cost and performance
20 breakdowns, 4 tows and still faulty
In the 6 years we owned it, it spent over 6 months at the mechanics. Never did solve all the issues, and we are talking about major failures brakes, ABS, Cooling system,and more. Mechanics replaced so many parts and after 3 years the brakes failing to release randomly did get resolved. Sudden full engine management failure causing limp-home-mode was never resolved.
Purchased in June 2011 for $54,500.00.
Drives nIce and smooth.
Not as spacious as I would have liked.
comfortable and more features than anyone would use. Comfort is excellent and recommend leather interior
Moon roof model feels like structure of car is much weaker. Have had little issues with rubber from the sunroof.

Questions & Answers
is a 2007 diesel with 240,000kms on it with full service history still have life in it? as in how many km's can you usually get out of them?
what are the biggest problems with a 2007 jeep limited auto cherokee?
I have a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Sport 73k klm and it has just started to go crazy jamming in park or neutral, flatening battery, unable to remove key, different warnings coming up on display. got it towed to a dealer and they said all the modules needed to be reset, 2 days later same issue, personally I think the Battery is dyeing but the dealer said it was fine, anyone else had these sort of issues I would like to hear
Our 2015 sport won't start due to electric steering part failure. Jeep says $1100 to fix. Has only done 110kms
