That was an assessment from the Pros. Listing pretty much all the Jeep Models except the Grand Cherokee if I recall. I know personally that their millage claims were bogus and not even remotely achievable in their engines.
Jeeps built to 2004 (grand Cherokees) were robust solid and maintainable. Some design problems like Blend Doors failures were chronic. But slowly degraded after that platform.
I just chuckle when I read brand new owners with few miles having major vibration problems from either the engine and/or transmission in their build. This never should happen and already a few have posted on that. Everything is new, unworn, clean and yet problems.
I think most of us work real hard to save $$ to buy and new vehicle. Being new problems should be few and minor at best especially with few miles driven.
This is not the first year that these vehicles have been flagged by various organizations to be warry. Even when I bought I read a lot of problems in 2007 but figured that by 2009 the Jeep would have done the right thing and corrected them. I was wrong very little was done to the power train issues which continued to fail early in life. Its not what one expects to experience in a new vehicle. Nor visiting your dealership for repairs several times a month continually. I did for most of the warranty period for new and continuing problems they could not find a fix for.
I have since bought a used Sante Fe AWD and am loving it after I sold my Grand Cherokee.
