Happy with mine

Picked up a GC Overland V6 last September. Traded in a 2012 GC 5.7. I like the V6 with an 8 spd better than the 5.7 with a 6 spd.
Also doesn't hurt that my mileage went from about 13 mpg to 19mpg. Have just short of 10,000 miles on it. Have to see how it holds up. No problems so far!

We bought a 2018 5.7 High Altitude 4X4 and got ~21mpg on the highway to KS and back and saw up to 22mpg on the way home. I guess on average, we are going down hill.
We get over 18mpg around town. And the skinny pedal on it is WAY more fun than the one on my 3.6L JKU Rubicon.

New to Jeep

This is my first Jeep. I bought it 5 March 2019. I chose the Grand Cherokee Altitude. Iíve owned several vehicles with the pentastar motor and love it. So far I have added running boards and splash guards. Itís blacked out (except for the honey comb grill inserts). So far, I love the way this Jeep rides and handles! Iím looking forward to a lot of years with the vehicle. Oh, Iíve named my Jeep ďKeraĒ.

6,100 miles after 7 months of ownership...just perfect...

I have owner my fair share of vehicles over the past 50+ years...this V-6 GC Limited has by far been the most comfortable, capable, enjoyable and best built of them all...

Same here. I've owned my 2018 V6 HA for a little over 7 months now and 12,500 miles and it has been a great vehicle. We made it through the snowy winter and one 11" snowstorm that happened while I was at work. No problem at all driving 28 miles home that night.

I enjoy everything about it, including the Park Assist.

Still happy with mine! Have owned mine for just over 7 months and only have 3600 miles on it. Five weeks ago I completed a 1700 mile round trip, then two weeks after that an 1100 mile round trip and then last week a 300 mile round trip. This Jeep runs and drives great!

I only drove it about 500 miles for the first six months and about half of those were snow and ice, needless to say it performed perfect!

I'm still very pleased with my 2016 Limited. Over 60,000 miles and absolutely no problems. It's been driven around the USA, coast-to-coast and border to border. Through nasty winter storms in the Cascades and along the Erie Corridor and through summer heat of the prairies with ease. Also, my experience with Jeep dealers has been good. A shout out to Cortland Jeep of Cortland, NY, where I bought the Jeep, and to Bob Howard of Edmond, OK, where I always seem to be passing through when an oil change and tire rotation are needed.

I picked up my third Jeep GC Last week. My first Jeep was a used 2011 and that was followed by the 75th Anniversarry Edition and now I finally am able to afford my dream Jeep a 2019 Overland High Altitude with all the bells and whistles. At this price point of around 55k I actually shopped around and test drove a Lexus and was certian I would just love it. I did not. The tech was there but poorly integrated and the lack of acceleration was noticeable even though they have similar engines. I remember during the test drive a Jeep similar in design to the one I finally got pulled up behind me and I thought...I dont like this car I want to be in that Jeep!

These vehicles drive the best in snow and have a great ride. Now with the upgraded HD 8.4 Uconnect, Nappa Leather, Panaramic Sunroof, and all the great tech like adaptive cruise control I could not be happier with my new purchase. The hydrolics even lower the vehicle when I put it in park to make my exit easier....Amazing!......beat that Lexus!

Nice Jeep, may you have many miles of smiles with it.

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.....

2014 and just turned 101,000 miles and no issues. Just put in new battery, plugs, belt, and replaced original brake pads and when taking them off realized I probably had another 20,000 miles on the front pads.

Purchased my 2019 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4-2 -2019 and so far really enjoying the ride. I have 1700 miles on it which included a 1200 mile round trip to Indiana and back. (averaged 26 mpg on this trip) I am a senior citizen and enjoy the Jeep Advanced Active Safety Group and also the Trailhawk Luxury Group. With the Quadra-Lift Air Suspension, it is the best riding vehicle I have ever owned and that is at least 80.
