Every day commuter that can take you to places not so every day.By Joseph M D'Alessandro, Nov 26, 2014So far we have had our Granite Crystal Cherokee TH 2.4I for 6 months. We have the black leather interior with the red stitching, Comfort/Conv package, and the 8.4a Uconnect system. We have slightly over 8k miles on her. I use it as a daily commuter during the week and on weekends we use her as our take us anywhere we wish to go vehicle. As a daily commuter the 2.4 is a little under powered. I find that I tend to use the manual shift or place it into sport mode when I need a little more get up and go. Getting on the highway I like to use the sport mode to get up to speed then place it back into auto once I'm cruising. My wife feels no need to do any of these things as she feels the TH is just fine. I have had only one issue with the xmission: prolonged shift between 2nd and 3rd. Other then that the tranny is very smooth. The mileage we get is about 18 city/22 hwy/ 20 combined. The exterior workmanship is excellent. The Granite Crystal Paint was clean with no waves or defects and the metallic in the paint looks awesome. The body seams look consistent. The interior of the car is top notch. The leather is soft and the seats are comfortable. The heated seats and steering wheel work well. The UConnect was easy to set up and we have had no issues what so ever with any of the electronics in the vehicle. The Bluetooth works very well with both my wife's Apple and my Android. The phone over the Bluetooth is awesome. I can have my window rolled down and be speaking on the phone and the person on the receiving end cant even tell they're on the Bluetooth. Sound is that good. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to store items as well as a large center console with plenty of space. With all that said, my wife and I love this Jeep. It's fun to drive, it's roomy enough to haul all our camping stuff, it feels bigger on the inside then it looks. It's comfortable for both driver and passenger on long trips. Would I buy this vehicle again? Yes. With the 3.2L V6 Pentastar engine. ...moreToo many to list.

Late year, July 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk reviewBy Miguel, Nov 24, 2014We were looking for a vehicle to pursuit our hobby of Geo-Caching and needed a vehicle capable of trail driving and probably some mild off-road driving as well. We consider the 2015 Subaru Outback and were actually for them to become available. Went to look at the Cherokee's and noticed an Anvil TH in the show room and really liked the looks and interior but did not care for the color or the black interior, too hot in Florida for a black interior and the ventilated seats were not available in 2014. We decided to order one in the Billet Silver with the Grand Canyon Brown interior, 3.2 with Tow package and NO decal on the hood because as mentioned earlier is too hot in Fla.Took over 9 weeks for our vehicle to arrive.We have logged over 8.200 problem free miles, it has been to the dealer only for one of four free oil changes that they gave us at time of purchase.We are loyal Honda customers but didn't think they made a truly capable 4x4 vehicle that met our liking with the gas mileage of the TH. 22/26mpg. We love our Cherokee and would buy it again. ...moreAwesome technology built in it. Great ride, super quiet and comfortable.Good mileage for a 3.2 engine.

Jeep TrailhawkBy Edward (Ted) Brewer, Sep 27, 2014The Trailhawk replaced our '08 Mitsubishi Outlander as we wanted a suv that was more capable off road for our photo visits to ghost towns, old mines, etc. in the northwest. The Jeep is 400 pounds heavier and has a slightly larger V-6 with 50 more h.p. but we get every bit as good fuel economy, averaging close to 24.5 mpg US even on trips with major hill climbing, and as much as 28 mpg on level roads. The Jeep is also much quieter and more comfortable both on the highweay and off road. The interior is of much higher quality materials and,with the technical package, offers greater convenince all round. On the other hand the Outlander had better inside storage in the door pockets, dash and glove box area. It also had a larger rear cargo volume, but the Jeep has a full size spare under the cargo floor and, with the Outlander, we had to carry the full size spare in the cargo area where it took up considerable space. ...morePowerful V-6, good fuel economy, quality interior, quiet at highway speeds, very comfortable seats, storage under passenger seat
small interior storage in the dash and doors for sunglasses, maps, tour guides, etc. and fairly small cargo space in the rear.Trim 2014 Jeep Cherokee 4WD 4dr Trailhawk

poor quaility build, numerous radio blue tooth issuesBy Karen Spain, Oct 25, 2014Help me! I purchased a 2014 Trail hawk and have had nothing but problems since the first week. The Blue tooth and radio dont work properly and have had 4 repairs to date. I wasnt complaining about little interior things until a new friend (he stopped me on the street to tell me my jeep was awful and he was an expert as he had the exact same model with same problems. He pointed out that all my complaints about interior were due to the fact that the entire drivers side of my car was misaligned. After he mentioned that it all made complete sense. Jeep is doing virtually nothing to repair except updating software repeatedly on radio and scratching their heads about misalignment. I.m in love with this car but want it to be near perfect if atall possible. I know I;m crazy but I would take another one if they offered, that's how much I love TH. ...morejeep qualties

First Jeep owned, wont be the last.By Joseph D'Alessandro, Aug 2, 2014Purchased on 6292014. Granite Crystal Metallic, I4 Tigershark, Leather, Comfort Package, Tow, 8.4a. Loving this Jeep! Didn't want a large SUV. Cherokee is the Goldie Locks of SUVs. Looks small from outside, feels big from inside. Leather is soft and seats are comfortable. The UConnect is easy to work with and works with my Samsung Galaxy 4 Active, although with my wifes IPhone the UConnect offers all its full features where with the Android not all features are available. Air is cold and audio system works well. Took my wife and I a trip up north to realize there wasn't a CD player. Did not miss it one bit. We had SXM which I find to be very convenient on long trips, we were able to hook up my Sony Walkman MP3 and listen to my tunes on that and when we got bored with that we were able to listen to the music on our phones. We could of listened to IHeart also if we had wanted to. Liking the UConnect. The Trail Hawk rides very nice for a 4x4 SUV. I found the ride to be smooth. The I4 is a little noisy but nothing outrageous. The blind spots are noticeable, nothing a set of Blind spot mirrors wont solve. The 2" receiver makes my bike rack sit a few inches higher then it did on my 02 Dodge Dakota. Also, the rack does block the back window quite a bit. Overall on a scale of 1 t 10, 10 being best, I will give the Cherokee an 8.5. ...moreModern good looks, Roomy and comfortable, 4x4.

Seventh 4x4 suvBy Edward (Ted) Brewer, Aug 2, 2014The '14 Cherokee Trailhawk is my 7th different 4x4 suv and, in every way, it is the best. It is the quietest, the most powerful, the most fuel efficient, the most capable on and off-road, the most comfortable, has the most complete instrumentation and, in my opinion, is the handsomeist. The one area where it places second is in interior storage. The door pockets, glove box and general nooks and crannies are much smaller than in our '08 Mitsubishi Outlander, as is the rear storage space. We will live with that light of the other qualities. ...morePowerful V-6, 9 speed transmission, hi-lo transfer case, locking rear differential, superb instrumentation, etc.

Second time aroundBy A. Mann, Aug 2, 2014After doing research for my brother for a new car I stumbled on the Cherokee and advised him that this look's really good as a replacement for his BMW 335D. He didn't think so but I did. In fact I did so much that I traded my Wrangler for it. The only thing is that it didn't fare out like I thought it would. I evidently got stuck with one that was very ill. So ill in fact that Chrysler after 3 months of ownership kept it from me while it was in the shop and offered me a replacement vehicle. Having actually loved the vehicle and knowing the old saying never buy the first model year I took them up on there offer instead of just being refunded all of my monies."Boy am I ever glad I did". This vehicle is without a doubt one of the finest car's (SUV) on the market today. I stayed with the Limited Model with the V-6 and substituted the 9spkr upgraded sound system for the Trailer Tow Pkg. I really didn't need a boom box going down the road and preferred the HD Cooling system which also provided the Heavy Duty Hitch and 4/7 pin wiring harness. The leather interior is far superior to anything in it's class and even exceed's most with a much higher sticker price. The heated seat's and steering wheel, along with the 8.4 AN ( Nav ) with all the other advanced technology that is offered in the Limited makes one feel like they are riding in a vehicle that one would only expect to get for a 60k plus car but at almost half the price. The ride is smooth, handling is crisp, comfort is excellent, and gas mileage for a V-6 is great. Chrysler has done a superior job with putting out this vehicle and virtually will blow the door's off anything near it's price range. The final build on this vehicle is excellent, with many thought's intended to make the driving experience one of pure pleasure. Neither Ford, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, or Subaru has anything that can come even close in my mind as I looked at them all and there is absolutely no comparison. My advice is go take a look, don't judge it by the pictures you may see as this is one vehicle you have to see, touch and drive to make an intelligent decision. As the final decision I am certain is to get one of these. ...moreEverything-technology, comfort, ride, handling and sheer exhilaration.

Nothing But Trouble.By Harold, Aug 23, 2014I was enthusiastic about getting my Trailhawk, at least until I started having problems. I began my lease in January of 2014, the Trailhawk had 250 miles on it. At around 7-800 miles I began to hear a really loud grinding noise. I brought it to the dealer service center where I bought my car. At first they couldn't identify the problem. Then they did. The rear differential was broken. I needed a whole new one. Car was in the shop for a week. The second problem started now with around 4700 miles on the car. I began to hear a small grinding noise from the front of the car this time. Bring it in to the service center. They tell me it needs a new transmission!!! Here I am a week and half now without the car. I was supposed to get it back today (6/11/2014) and the technician calls to tell me they found another problem on top of the transmission. Hopefully I will have my car tomorrow. ...moreAt this point I can't find any.

MehBy Red, Aug 2, 2014For 40k, one would expect the brights to be as good or better than the old Grand Cherokee. They're inferior as they are way too centered and the sides of the road are not lit at all. If they can't be adjusted, I will get something else, they're That Bad. I live in the boonies where great brights are imperative. Also, what's with the puny 15 gallon fuel tank??? My husband talked me into getting this and though the interior is lovely (aside from the small cargo area) and I love the full size spare, I would rather drive my 10 year old Grand Cherokee. But the wheels are cool at least. ...moreleather seats awesomely comfortable, tow hooks, V6 plenty of go
brights are a catastrophic fail, tiny fuel tank
