Notes: The 2012 Grand Cherokee hasn’t seen the same complaint volume as the 2011, at least not yet.

It’s worth noting both model years are part of a class-action lawsuit that focuses on a defective TIPM and a long wait for replacement parts.

The 2012 also received national attention after it failed a Sweedish Magazine’s “moose test”. the test measures a vehicle’s ability to swerve out of the way of an obstacle you wouldn’t want to hit while driving down the road … like a moose.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Consumer states problem with vehicle brakes the consumer stated he had several close calls when he suddenly had to slam on the brakes and the vehicle seemed to take additional time to stop. The consumer stated when the dealer placed the vehicle on the hoist, they found the vacuum line going into the rear of the intake manifold off the vehicle. With no vacuum line and an open vacuum leak, there was no power brakes. The repair amounted to installing the line and a clamp which was not done at the factory. Updated 12/19/12
