Something of a Swiss Army Knife among midsized SUVs, the Grand Cherokee is a versatile, well-rounded vehicle. When properly equipped, it is capable on or off road. It also makes a good choice for trailer towing. The ride is comfortable and the interior is quiet, as well as nicely finished. A 2014 freshening brought a significant boost to the Grand Cherokee's road-test score.

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

Something of a Swiss Army Knife among midsized SUVs, the Grand Cherokee is a versatile, well-rounded vehicle. When properly equipped, it is capable on or off road. It also makes a good choice for trailer towing. The ride is comfortable and the interior is quiet, as well as nicely finished.

A 2014 freshening brought a significant boost to the Grand Cherokee's road-test score. Improved controls, better fit and finish and a new eight-speed automatic -- which improves performance -- are high points of this update. Unfortunately, the transmission did nothing to improve the overall fuel economy of the V6 version we tested.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"Sensors would go off indicating a vehicle but none were present"

Robert O., SC (2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7-L V8)

"The image from the backup camera sometimes shows up as static or a blank blue screen. It does this fairly often and has done it since the car was brand new. I have repeatedly mentioned it to the dealer when taking the car in for service and they even replaced the camera once. But the problem still continues"

Steven B., NY (2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6-L V6)

"Car has been in shop five (5) times for sensor that brakes the car when it gets close to another vehicle although there is never a vehicle near me when the car automatically brakes. The dealership is horrendous and has never correctly repaired it"

Parker M., CO (2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6-L V6)

"The front-collision avoidance system (radar?) malfunctioned and flashed a warning message telling me to brake; but there were no vehicles in proximity to my car. Additionally, several indicators (fuel, air suspension, etc.) gave erroneous indications"

Kenneth M., NY (2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6-L V6)

"Problems with Adaptive Cruise Control not looking properly down center of road. Causes vehicle to abruptly slow when a car to the left in another lane slows for a turn or stop.Dealer still working on it"

"Fuzzy image"

Joseph S., IL (2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 6.4-L V8)

"The backup camera became very 'jittery' after the first couple of software updates. It reached a point where the camera was not very helpful when backing up. Jeep claimed it was the auto-focus feature on the camera"

"Screen goes dark on occasion when backing up; especially when leaving garage into daylight"

"Intermittent initial load failure of the UConnect system during ignition cycles. Sometimes unit will load but is unresponsive to touch control thereby relegating any radio, climate control, seat heat/cool or Nav features inoperable. New replacement radio unit was ordered"

"I had 78,000 miles on the Jeep. My wife was alone, out of town, barely made it to a Jeep Dealer. They had to replace the electronic emissions control unit. It has a federal EPA warranty of 80,000 miles or 8 years. Either way I am covered. The dealer tells my wife that it has a 36,000 mile warranty. She calls me, dealer says the same to me. Dealer shows my wife that the computer says 36,000 miles. My wife verifies that is what is says. I tell the dealer no way. He acts like he never heard of a Federal Emissions Warranty. We end up paying for a new one, $500. The dealer tells me to complain to FCA. I do and fax them all my paperwork. The person on the phone says it will take a while to decide. I ask her what it is they need to think about. She says that I should be reimbursed but this is FCA and it will take 3-4 months. 4 months later I call to ask about my claim. FCA says they are still reviewing it. I ask her how is that possible? She says she can put the claim through but it most likely will get stopped before they print the check. 2 months later I still have nothing. I went to my local dealer to have the radiator replaced. I asked the dealer what the warranty on emissions is on my vehicle. He looks it up on his computer and says 80,000 miles. I ask him to show me. Magically the computer has been updated to reflect my true warranty but I still have not been reimbursed."

"The extended warranty covered replacement of the leaking radiator."
