I bought a 2011 Rubicon in June and love it. We are looking to replace the other family car and are test driving Grand Cherokee 70'th Anniversary and Overland models. We did some research on Edmund's and Kelly websites to see what the customer satisfaction levels were for these models. Overall, most customers rate the 2011 Grand Cherokee very highly, but we have noticed quite a lot of negative experiences with the car NOT STARTING after a few thousand miles. Most of the issues seemed to be electronic issues related to the computer that runs the key-less entry and push button ignition. Looks like it is a big problem for these folks.
We live in Chicago, but preferred dealers for warranty work are in northern and northwestern suburbs. Last thing we want to do is purchase a 40 thousand dollar car that we LOVE but can not start.
