Notes: The fourth generation Grand Cherokee took the relatively trouble-free run of the 3rd-generation and flipped the script.

From 2010 to 2011, complaints about the vehicle not starting increased 10-fold. In fact, the 2011 model year is riddled with engine problems and a defective TIPM might be to blame. The TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) distributes power to all the eletrical components in the vehicle, so when it starts acting funny so do numerous other components in the car. Orders for new TIPMs were so abundant that parts became scarce, prompting a class-action lawsuit claiming Chrysler ignored this obvious defect.

By 2012 complaints dropped back down by about 80%. Needless to say, if you see a used 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee on a lot just keep walking.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 212015

Grand Cherokee Overland Summit Hemi V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,000 miles


Have had the car a little over month, the forward collision sensor came on several times when I went through the roundabout near my house and would shut the car off. Recently, the steering has just been locking, no sensors go off, the engine stays running, the steering wheel just completely locks up. Dealer says they can't find anything wrong with it, no codes come up indicating a problem and when they took it for a test drive it didn't happen so they don't see a problem.

Help! Anyone else have similar issues? The last time it happened I was on a highway going 50 miles and hour and lost steering. I shut the car off and turned it back on and it was fine.
