Customer Review Summary for 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
WOW! What a difference!
2011 Jeep Grand CherokeePickyPurchaser - Los Angeles, CA12/05/2010
I come from a long line of Grand Cherokee owners but I have to say the 2011 take the CAKE!
I am blown away with how completely different they are from the older models I've experienced and those were great to begin with!
It's higher than the previous models so the antenna on the back hits a few things, sending me into a heart attack thinking I've hit something, but other than that, its a quiet and enjoyable ride, even while off-roading! Not to worry about the damage to the antenna because there isnt any, and it gets rubbed or hit atleast twice a day....just takes a lickin & keeps on tickin!
I am very pleased with the vehicle but do keep in mind if you're getting the V8 hemi.....it gussles gas like no other, even without the off road or 4x4 action. But if you're not doing too much driving or dont mind dropping $70-$80 to fill the tank each time....then you'll be 100% satisfied with this Jeep!

Great Vehicle - A couple of minor issues
2011 Jeep Grand CherokeeHunter99 - Raleigh, NC07/31/2011
Bought this about a month and a half ago now and have enjoyed it so far. We got the Overland model so there are some extra bells and whistles that I didn't think we would really care too much about but I was wrong. The adaptive cruise control makes freeway and interstate driving much less stressful, and the blind spot warning system is very handy. Worth getting the extra features if you can.
There have been a couple of minor issues. A few pieces of trim in the back popped loose and a couple of pieces in the wiper well did as well. Took to the dealer and they were easily fixed in a short time so no big gripe there.
I have to admit the new V6 pentastar so far has been a good engine. You have to be aware , though, if you are getting it in this vehicle, the Grand Cheerokee weighs over 5000lbs. so it is not going to be winning red light battles. That is not the reason to get it. It is very quiet and smooth. Once up to speed it handles highway driving like a champ and has plenty of pickup at those speeds when needed. The only gripe I have is while getting up to speed it downshifts to 3rd to quick and looses momentum, as well as when you make a left turn while accelerating. There is a TSB out for this now so going to have that applied and see if it resolves that.
Other than that the vehicle is super quiet, stable, comfortable, and simply nice to drive. even though it is large is has a really impressive turning radius so getting in and out of tight spaces is pretty easy. While I have had a couple of little issues, there has been nothing I wouldn't have probably seen on a brand new car either so no gripe there. Oh, By the way, for those that like to do your own oil changes, this has to be the easiest vehicle I have ever done one on. Took literally 10 minutes.
