Love My 2013 Jeep GC!

Coming from a GM family, I was initially a bit unsure of getting something else. However, I have owned my 2013 Jeep GC Laredo 4x4 Trail Rated for 6 months and am thoroughly impressed. 4x4 handles like a dream in 12" + snow, and sport mode is great in the summer. Love that I sit up high, but handles a lot like a car, taking turns tighter than I would have guessed. Much easier to park that the Tahoe we had also been considering. Plenty of room to chauffer around my now 13 month old twins and necessities needed to go with them, including a large double stroller. My 6'2" husband can easily fit in the front and rear seats (w/o sunroof), which we found to be quite a feat compared to other similar-sized SUVs. U Connect phone feature and bluetooth connection between phone and stereo is fabulous, and the keyless entry is wonderful when you are a mom with full hands who can't search for keys. Same with the push button start and push buttons for locking on the door handles/lift gate. Remote start is a must have when you live anywhere cold, and OEM remote start seems to work as well you can expect for an OEM system. Use the outlet a lot to charge camera batteries on the go. Although we just have the cloth upholstery and basic stereo, still feels like a luxury vehicle with nicely made cloth, leather trim, leather steering wheel, wood trim, and 'mood lighting' in the cup holders and door pockets. Easy to change oil: no problem draining the oil pan, even with the skid plates, and oil filter is readily accessible front and center when you open the hood. Happy that I can drive the kids around but can also can do a little off roading to get off the beaten path. Wish the 3.7 V6 had a little more power for going up steeper hills, but considering the MPG savings and significant cost difference compared to the Hemi, still have plenty of power.

My wife and I were so impressed with my Grand Cherokee that we replaced her Mitsubishi with a duplicate Cherokee (different color). Seats are a big issue for us. The power lumbar is fantastic. The heated feature is very nice. The interior is rich and plush. Dash is not made of cheap plastic. The accessories, storage, cup holders, power outlets are abundant. I would highly recommend this vehicle.

Bad surging on the Hemi 5.7!

I recently purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the six speed automatic with the Hemi 5.7 option. After driving it for several days, I noticed a surging when slightly accelerating up driving uphill in Auto mode. After researching this problem on the internet, I found it to be a VERY common occurrence and it is called the "fishbite" syndrome. There is no confirmed fix other than the dealership doing a software update which does nothing other than reducing the gas mileage by about 2-3 mpg's. I love this car in EVERY other way except this ongoing problem. I am willing to give the dealership one more try to fix and then will consider selling or trading it in. Very frustrating and especially for a "tough" Jeep that costs as much as this car did. Should have bought a NIssan or Toyota!

I've owned my new 2013 Grand Cherokee for about 3 weeks. I have the Laredo with the "X" package. The ride is very smooth and it is very quiet. I have the V-6 which feels peppy. I have driven it in the Colorado mountains and it does very well. The leather (heated) seats are very comfortable. For me, there is plenty of cargo space. I'm still getting familiar with the navigation system, which seems fairly easy to use. So far, I am very happy with the Grand Cherokee!

I purchased my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 12-13k miles on it so saved some there. So far having had it for about a month really like it for it's ride and interior fit and finish which is much better then I expected for an American vehicle. I chose the V6 to save some money on gas mileage and so far not bad but not great but that is also because i used own an Acura TL so very diffent. Like the feature with the auto unlock the most -great not having to grab your keys when your hands are full. Overall pleased-wish it was a little less but picked up mine for 36-37k so all in all 4 stars

2nd best overall car I've owned

by from Erie, PA on February 1, 2015

The smooth ride, comfortable seating and at-your-finger-tips controls makes this a great vehicle. Time will tell on reliability.

I traded in my 2008 Ford Edge for a new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. So far the car is excellent, nice ride, comfortable, decent gas mileage and all-around fun to drive. I got the basic Laredo with uconnect. No complaints at all. Great value for the money. This is the 4th Jeep in our family joining two 2010 Liberty's and a 2008 Grand Cherokee. I could have gotten a 2014 but did not like the changes in style or the new electronic shifter. Jeep should have stuck with the 2013 design, it's definitely a winner!

Never having owning a Jeep before, I was wary of it's ride. It performed well and has a smooth, heavy ride that is very nice. The accessories are everything that most could want. I took it on a road trip of over 4,000 miles 2 days after delivery and have not had one complaint with it. I had ordered my Jeep, filled out the contract and signed it with a sizeable deposit and was re-contacted by the sales staff that another dealer had sold it because of miscommunication. My dealer found another in an adjacent state and delivered it to me in time for my travels. It had a few accessories more than what I asked for and had to pony up $400 more for them but the dealer paid the remaining $800 and took care of the transportation from the neighboring state.

Not Your Daddy's Grand Cherokee

Jeep has certainly come a long way since the late 80's when Chrysler took over the iconic brand, and my 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited is a shiny example. Comparisons to my former 1990 Cherokee are useless, as this latest edition is both powerful - with the V8 Hemi - and luxurious with its heated seats and steering wheel and technology offerings that would make a geek drool. Some of the coolest technology features are the ability to listen to the music from your smart phone through the Bluetooth interface, as well as being able to make your calls hands-free. It's nice to have the GPS integrated into the center display as well, but that brings up an important, if not glaring, shortcoming in the Grand Cherokee's tech features. The GPS display is, in a word, terrible. The resolution is horrible and, as a safety precaution, you cannot alter any information (detour, pitstop for food, etc) while driving...not even your front seat passenger. Other than that, the seats are comfortable and highly adjustable and the power rear lift-gate is very helpful with kids and packages alike. Beyond the fact that I feel like I should live next to a gas station with the V8 gulping fuel, this car has been fantastic in the 6 weeks and 2500 miles I have owned it since turning in my German sports sedan. Good luck and safe travels!
