They have the Cherokee rated #1 in a field of 23.:)
Notable too is that the overall score it is quite far ahead of the second place finishing 2014 Subaru Forester (9.5 to 8.8).:blush:

Reliability is probably the one thing holding me back from being decisive about going with the JC. I got burned in 1999 buying the first of the line for VW Jettas. Over $3000 in *non-maintenance* repairs in the first three years, and not covered by warranty. The warranty items were in addition. I chose VW that year because all the interior finishes were so much nicer than Honda and Toyota but they'd saved costs on things you couldn't see when buying a car. I'd been warned never to buy the first of a car and ignored the warning with many a headache following, and with Jeep's not-good history in this department (at least compared with boring Honda and Toyota), it's hard to feel peaceful going forward. I *should* wait a year :-(
Doubt it boils downs to that. Honda and Toyota are well known for their reliability, obviously. I'm not an either or thinker in this complex world.
LOL, everyone knows the fix is in with Consumer Reports.
I'm open to being educated. Can you explain this with particulars?

Meanwhile, this does not make me warm and fuzzy towards Jeep, while it does also suggest not even all Japanese cars are perfect (gasp!) http://editorial.autos.msn.com/cons...bility-survey-shows-brands-rising-and-falling
