Jeep Grand Cherokee 1997 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Jeep Grand Cherokee here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 2015: Blown automatic transmission.

    Perhaps a little strangely, the only recall I could find for this model to do with the transmission was one alerting owners to the fact that the unconventional design of the shifter handle could trick them into leaving the vehicle unattended without first selecting Park. But it doesn’t surprise me that you’ve had this failure as this generation of Jeeps has been plagued by all sorts of quality and reliability problems and, therefore, recalls and technical service bulletins (like a recall but not a safety-related issue).

    I would definitely be tapping Jeep on the shoulder as I don’t believe 85,000km is a reasonable expectation when it comes to the life expectancy of such a major component in a modern vehicle. However, your car is clearly out of warranty, so it could come down to a dog-fight between you and Jeep.

    I’d like to think that Jeep might meet you half way with the cost of repairs given the youth and full service history of your car, but there are no hard and fast rules here. You could also consider talking to Consumer Affairs over this.

    The other thing you can do is talk to a transmission specialist as opposed to a Jeep dealer. Chances are, the cost of a replacement or rebuilt transmission from a specialist might be a fair bit less than a dealership can offer. But I’d definitely talk to Jeep head office first.

  • Does the Jeep Grand Cherokee have product quality issues?

    Remember Jeep has gone through a huge change in ownership following Fiat’s buyout of the company from Daimler. There have certainly been quality issues since Fiat took over, but they don’t appear to be as frequent now as they were.
