Yes, I have not really had issues with any Chrysler before. My father retired from GM, my uncle from Ford I have received a bit of sometimes not so light hearted ribbing. I guess because I always wrenched most of my cars, I never really appreciated the need for a top quality service department. At my age and how crowded the engine compartment in a transverse mounted vehicle is. Other than oil & brake pads etc, those days are done. I assume that FCA will stand by their product and make it right. It is the months waiting with very little information that has me stressed. @JeepCares contacted my regional rep yesterday, still waiting on his call. I do appreciate them contacting him for me since I haven't had much luck. The first month before the issues really began I liked the Cherokee, though the transmission seemed to make its mission to rob all the fun out of the V6. Do all of them not like to shift down? My 2013 Wrangler was a whole lot of fun to drive with a lot more power than my 2011 Wrangler. I will say though, the KIA Sorento V6 AWD, isn't a bad vehicle that has been my loaner now for a couple months. Jeep needs to up its game in the Cherokee. A manual transmission or a better automatic would be the place to start. I'm glad you like your Cherokee, I don't for a minute think all of them are like mine. I see way too many on the road.
