Something of a Swiss Army Knife among midsized SUVs, the Grand Cherokee is a versatile, well-rounded vehicle. When properly equipped, it is very capable on or off road, and it makes a good choice for trailer towing. All Grand Cherokees are easy to live with. Luxurious interior finish, hushed noise levels, and supportive seats make it a welcome road trip companion.

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2018 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

Android Auto

"Android auto gets confused when 2 Android phones are connected in the same time. The newer software version from 2019 Jeep doesn't have this issue. Why Jeep doesn't maintain all car generation in the same software version?"

Anonymous, PA (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)
Apple CarPlay

"Apple car play works intermittently. The system does not always recognize the phone is plugged into it. Also, Apple Car Play conflicts with Bluetooth."

Kevin M., MD (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.6-L V6)
Backup or other camera/sensors

"When in reverse, there is no clock ANYWHERE in the vehicle, not to mention, because the clock appears in different places on the screen, one doesn't know where to look to find the time. Also, one cannot make phone calls while in reverse."

Anonymous, NC (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 3.6-L V6)
Display screen freezes up

"The center console would become unresponsive while the heating fan would come on at 2/6 speed. None of the controls would work (radio knobs, sport mode, lane assists buttons, touch screen etc. ). I took it in to be repaired and they swapped out the whole touch screen console. The day I picked it up fixed it immediately had the same problem. I waited over a month for more parts and the vehicle was in the shop for another 7 days. They replaced the fuse box and tightened a loose connection. It appears to be fixed. The problem started with less than 3000 miles on the brand new vehicle."

Anonymous, AZ (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.0-L V6 diesel)

"Freezes up unexpectedly Some controls cause screen to go blank unexpectedly"

Anonymous, FL (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6-L V6)

"Jeep uses the XM satellite system to distribute software updates to the infotainment system. One such update was corrupt and caused the entire infotainment/GPS/environmental control system to reboot every 30 seconds. Jeep said they were aware of the problem. After 4 days Jeep distributed new software that fixed the problem. In compensation Jeep and XM provided an additional free year of service."

Anonymous, NH (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6-L V6)

"Randomly happened twice. Jeep dealer wasn't unable to determine the cause. Speculated that it was reading old fingerprints on the screen during cold weather."

Anonymous, CO (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)
Display screen goes blank

"The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then the system reboots itself. This is a hassle when using GPS."

Kevin M., MD (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.6-L V6)

"The car was parked outside in very cold weather when the screen was blank. The screen dispalyed when the vehicle warmed up."

Anonymous, UT (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)

External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"Intermittent disconnects of CarPlay."

Anonymous, DC (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 5.7-L V8)

"ANY type of iPod/MP3 player will only be read by the system if it's unplugged and then plugged back in. EVERY other car I've owned will immediately read the external device upon startup, but in my Jeep I need to reach down, while driving, unplug and then replug the USB so the car will read the device. It's let to me swerving out of my lane on several occasions. Now I don't even listen to my aux device because it's too much of a danger/hassle. I've tried every cable I can get my hands on, and numerous devices, and nothing works. I took it to Jeep and they told me it worked absolutely fine for them and there was no problem. The Service Dept is complete garbage, but that's a different tale altogether."

Anonymous, NJ (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude 3.6-L V6)
Hardware replacement

"The compass and GPS were not operating properly. I took it in and the service department had it for 13 days and had to replace the entire unit. I got a loaner car."

Anonymous, OH (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"Street names are wrong, speed limits are wrong, the wrong street names appear at the top that show what street I'm driving on."

Denise G., PA (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 3.6-L V6)

"It was part of a defective unit."

Anonymous, OH (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"It has been extremely difficult understanding the pairing of the phone to the vehicle. I was not brought up with computers so the wording and symbols are something that I am not familiar with at all. As for that part, the salesman did not explain or slow down so I could understand what he was talking about...lol"

Mike G., MI (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.6-L V6)
Radio

"I have Sirius XM and there are many issues with the songs skipping, with the favorites notification not displaying when favorites are playing, and with my saved channels not being saved in the location I put them (i.e. I save a favorite as channel 1 but it's not in channel 1 when I turn on the car next time)."

Denise G., PA (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 3.6-L V6)
Software update fixes

"Because of modern cloud computing way of running software, we had an over the air update without owner consent that mde the system to restart every few seconds."

Anonymous, PA (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 3.6-L V6)

"I have had numerous issues with the vehicles electronics that have required software updates. Or what the dealer told me required software updates. these include the heated seats not heating, heated steering wheel not heating, memory seats losing programs, entry exit not working etc. the dealer had staff from FCA come into the shop to check out the vehicle and they had to program a fix for the issues which fixed some issues and caused others. I have asked to have the electronics replaced but the dealer and FCA have so far refused. I always wanted a Grand Cherokee and now i have one it's electronics are a mess I will never buy another."

Automatic climate control

"When setting a particular temperature (say 68 on both sides) there is significant difference in the air temp coming out of the vents. The driver side feels like it is freezing and the passenger side relevant to the 68 degree setting. There are times when the air conditioning is set to off and the driver side air temp from the register is definitely being refrigerated. We have taken the car to the Dealer for a reboot and that has not fixed it. We will take it back again soon."

Blower (fan) motor

"Two months into ownership the AC started "rattling". Shortly after the rattle the entire unit stopped working entirely. Jeep Service department (which is the worst service dept I've ever been to) told me another engine bay component was SCREWED INTO the Blower Motor's wiring harness. Like, that's how this other component was mounted to the car. Ridiculous! I'm lucky the car didn't catch fire with me in it. It's almost 2 years later and yet again I have another rattle in the AC and it doesn't blow as strong."

I still don't know what each function is until I need it like the interior lighting I have pulled off of the road to shut off a blinding light one may even turn on accidentally."

Mike G., MI (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.6-L V6)

"When going from bright daylight to dusk, the automatic headlights come on and that should cause the dashboard and center stack backlights to come on, but it doesn’t. Instead, the window button lights on the doors come on, but the steering wheel, center stack and center counsel lights do not light up causing me to not see the climate system and radio controls until it is completely dark outside. In addition, when you place the terrain selector to “snow”, my bright lights come on only in bright daylight."

Engine computer

"The vehicle has an automatic shut off when you stop at a light, the minute you take your foot off the brake, it SUPPOSEDLY RESTARTS! Most of the time, that is true, but frequently, the engine struggles to restart. I suspect that the battery is not heavy duty enough to handle this stiop/start feature. The same problem occurs in the Jeep Cherokee though no where near as often or as bad. It seems Chrysler installed a battery sufficient to usually do the job in an effort to save money. Gee, what a surprise!!!"
