Overall, a pleasant car. Drives well, with the V-6 engine the power is more than adequate and the fuel economy is excellent. The transmission is the odd part of the performance picture. It has nine speeds, but it sometimes feels like it cannot decide which of the nine speeds is the appropriate one for the situation. There is a large gap in the lower gears, and sometimes it lurches when it downshifts at a speed just above idle as it shifts to a lower gear. Conversely, it is often lazy about shifting down a gear at higher speeds and it seems to lug a bit before finally changing down a gear. We have adapted to these behaviors, but I cannot say that we are really happy with them overall.
Hate this car
2016 Jeep CherokeeJacqueline S - Morris, IL12/25/2016
First of all the car is a four cyclinder. Slow as molasses. It's loud and the vehicle is really compact inside. I bought it used with 19,000 miles on it. And it's in the shop. Something about he temperature gauge. The check engine light goes on which disables the restore start. It's like -5 outside and really could use that option right now. Had to wait a week to get into the Jeep dealer to be serviced and now have waited over a week for the part to come in. Very unhappy right now. I hear a knocking noise but the dealer service department says he doesn't hear anything. The sound comes and goes and drives me nuts cuz apparently no one but me hears it. Weird huh? Also, it's not quiet at all. You can hear outside noise. Trading in very soon.
This car is slow to accelerate and I believe transmission problems are impending. The transmission light has come on already at 4x,xxx miles. Took it to have it checked and ended up having to come out of pocket for a loaner vehicle as it was at the dealership for a week. The transmission light is off but it still hesitates while I'm driving and accelerates extremely slow. I am not at all happy with this vehicle that I will be paying on for quite sometime.
