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.

In-dash navigation system (GPS)

Gear selector or linkage

"Notorious recall for great shift design error. The recall is almost worse because it automatically shifts you into park if your door is ajar. It's very inconvenient and could be a problem in certain situations. I would not have completed the recall had I known their solution to try to fix their design error. I always do a visual check with any vehicle I drive to make sure it is in park; plus I always engage the parking park before I release the foot brake after shifting to park. So this design error would very, very unlikely affect me."

"Very hard to determine which gear you are in. Shifter is more like joystick."

Anonymous, CA (2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.6-L V6)

"Electronic transmission shifter and control is very vague in operation. Attempting to shift into Reverse from Park frequently results in transmission ending up in neutral or drive. Shifting from Park to Drive frequently results in the transmission being in neutral. Paddle shifters operate funny (in comparison to both the 2015 and 2018 Sonata, or my 2012 Corvette.)."

Thomas S., MI (2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)

"Gear shift selection is troublesome. Sometimes don't know what gear you are in. Have to toggle the selector to desired position and you are not always in the gear you think you are supposed to be in. Also, at carwash you have to step on brake to shift from N to Drive and with cars closely behind you, the car can get rammed from behind if you are not fast to shift."

Michael S., IN (2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)

"Uncertain transmission shifting safety recall apparently involved reprogramming of five electronic control modules (computers) in the vehicle to insure "roll-away" possibility was eliminated, but none of this resulted in more positive shift lever operation of the transmission. Also, the paddle shifters do not operated in the same manner as other "industry-standard" vehicles, which I think could and should have been changed with all that reprogramming"

Thomas S., MI (2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)
Transmission sensor or solenoid

"Many Mopar vehicles were recalled this past year due to a potentially serious issue with the transmission selection knob. There were issues reported with the transmission not being put in park despite indicating that it was in park. This issue resulted in the death of at least one individual. Despite the dealership stating that it was a short 15 minute computer flash, they had to keep the vehicle for an entire day which was rather inconvenient, but less inconvenient than death"

Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling)

"Dont know when it started, the paint above the windshield was cracking from the right side to the left. It had approximately 15 to 20 cracks across it.The dealer said that it was caused by a rock hitting it. During the inspection, there were no chips or cracks in the windshield or along the front of the roof. I was told that it wasn't covered by my warranty, even though it stated that the body panels were covered. I had to pay for a new roof."

Combustion in the intake manifold can increase the risk of a fire.
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engines. The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler may crack and allow pre-heated vaporized coolant to enter the EGR system. This mixture may combust inside the intake manifold.
What should you do:
FCA US LLC will notify owners, and dealers will replace the EGR cooler, free of charge. Dealers will also inspect and, as necessary, replace the intake manifold. Parts are not currently available. Owners were mailed an interim notification on December 21, 2021. A second notification will be mailed when parts are available, currently expected to be around March 11, 2021. The recall began March 11, 2021. Owners may contact FCA US LLC customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA US LLC's number for this recall is W79.

An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Ram 1500 and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. The crankshaft position sensor tone wheel may delaminate causing the engine to lose its ability to synchronize the fuel injector pulses and cam shaft timing, possibly resulting in an engine stall.
What should you do:
FCA US will notify owners, and dealers will update the powertrain control module software to maintain vehicle propulsion by reading the camshaft position signal in the event that the crankshaft position signal is lost, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed on May 13, 2021. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-2002. FCA US's number for this recall is W58.

If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled to address a defect that could prevent the cruise control system from disengaging. If, when using cruise control, there is a short circuit within the vehicle's wiring, the driver may not be able to shut off the cruise control either by depressing the brake pedal or manually turning the system off once it has been engaged, resulting in either the vehicle maintaining its current speed or possibly accelerating.
What should you do:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the software, and perform a software flash on the engine or powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall began June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Note: Owners are advised to stop using cruise control until the software update has been performed. In the event that cruise control cannot be disengaged while driving, owners should firmly and steadily apply the brakes and shift the transmission to neutral, placing the vehicle in park once it has stopped.
