2014 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #3

Feb 012019

Cherokee Trailhawk V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


I've had many issues with this vehicle. Many inconvenient recalls, ongoing transmission slippage pending a class action lawsuit, warping discs and now the expensive oil cooler.

problem #2

Dec 192018

Cherokee TrailHawk 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

Gaskets failed around the oil filter assembly causing an oil leak. Cost of repair was in excess of $800.00 with little of that being the cost of the parts.

Cherokee LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,371 miles

It is quite pathetic that Jeep is aware of this common error made by the company and they aren't recalling the parts or covering the repairs. We should have known that this car would be a piece of crap because it is a Chrysler. Because of this dumb leak, my vehicle will not pass inspection and I am now in a car that is not safe for my family to drive around in.

When we contacted the local Chrysler dealer, they informed us that they are AWARE of this common leak and that there has been a new O-ring replacement kit made simply because of the high rate of replacement!

IF YOU KNOW there is a problem and it was a manufacturer error, FIX IT!!!!
