I see the same questions asked over and over by new and potential Jeep SRT owners. Are they reliable? What are the known issues? How is the gas mileage? Can I use 87 octane ugh. Rather than answer everyone individually, I decided a video would cover many of these questions that I've had experience with. My Jeep SRT is a 2015 and it's had numerous warranty work done. I cover all of that here. This is my opinion, and solely my own opinion on the quality and reliability of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT that I own.

      I had a 2007 300c srt8 with 150k miles I didnt have a single problem with it just brakes pad and a battery. Those 6.1 are very reliable.

      Terrible fishes and problems all in just a 3 year Jeep?? Completely unreasonable for that long list of problems, blast to ride but damn I just don’t see the justification.

      For the amount of money for the SRT peeling paint on the rims and carbon fiber trim not staying in place is ridiculous. It seems youre paying for the engine and nothing else of quality.

      Is it just accepted that if you own a Jeep you are going to have problems with it?

      EastCoastJeepSRT In reply to Brian D.

      Brian D. Not at all. Out of all the Jeeps I’ve owned I had one lemon, like legit lemon, and one (the SRT) had minor issues. All of the others had zero issues. The Trackhawk I have now has zero issues and almost 12,000 miles.

      Looking at a 2016 summit with the 5.7 Hemi and also a 2014 Srt jgc. Any recommendations which way I should go. Love the power the 392 delivers but not sure what engine would be more reliable...

      kickzfanatic with Jeep it’s hit or miss. If you want better gas mileage and more amenities go with the Summit, but if you love to have a fast car and don’t care about buying Premium gas, the SRT all the way.

      I just put a deposit on a 2015 SRT. I would like to get some wheels for it. I know you recomend 24's. I am concerned about destroying them on pot holes. Are you constantly dodging pot holes or does the suspension suck it up well enough?

    • EastCoastJeepSRT
      EastCoastJeepSRT In reply to Kelly Dressa

      No, 22s, not 24s. If you get forged 22s you're fine. Even non-forged wheels hold up very well and the suspension is fine

      I bought my 2015 SRT used and was in great condition except the carbon trim was peeling and a section of my left headlight turned blue, I wonder if the issues were addressed for the newer year models?

      I had the same thing happen to my 2015 wheels it was a year old. I don’t think they’ve ever fixed the carbon fiber trim issue but they did extend the warranty on it.

      It’s not simply being able to afford premium gas, I think people want performance with a budget at the same time. What’s more important though, Prius affordability or a vehicle that moves 😉

      The carbon fiber trimming should’ve gotten clips to keep it well secured like the rest of the parts.

      Had any front strut issues?! I was told by the dealer it happens about 30k which makes no sense and they also said they are back ordered with no date of when they’ll be made. I have a 15 srt.

      5.7 hemi recommends 89, at least that's what my 1500 Rebels manual says. The 6.4 392 needs premium 100 percent though.

      +Anthony Z You can get a Trackhawk for just under $80k at Chapman Jeep in Horsham PA. Check that dealership out before making any decisions. Might be worth the visit if you can swing the deal.

      Anthony Z In reply to Anthony Z

      Yeah its def recommended for the Hemi (91 oct).. I was just at jeep today because my lease is up in a few months and was looking at the trackhawk but just can't seem to want to pull the trigger on 100k for a jeep. I know its a tough ass truck and all but comparing the looks, I like the SRT just fine for 17k less! lol.. 
      and like i said before, non of my cars, even my 2016 G63 i always put 91-93 octane. But i also buy my cars/truck so that's the reason id never put 87 in. Since i leased this jeep i figure why put 91 if its going back!?! But bottom line the Hemi runs just fine on 87. Fkn love the look of these new SRT's and that Trackhawk!! Shit even the new Limited X looks good with the SRT hood that comes with it now! haha Jeep done lost there minds…. The G Wagen i think ill be selling Hence the reason im interested in the SRT or the Hawk. @EastCoastJeepSRT

      I don’t believe 91 or above is recommended for the 5.7. I’d have to check. 87 is fine.

      You want low mileage, not tuned, regular fluid changes and clean carfax, in my opinion. My GM car I changed the water pump twice.

      I have a turbo Volkswagen with a 93 octane canned tune. 18psi and extra timing. Even with 93 it will pull some timing when intake air temps creep up. So in the summer I mix in boostane to bring it to 96 octane. The days of pumping 87 were gone 12 years ago for me. My last 3 vehicles, modified turbo engines.

      Off the top of my head around 39k miles. They’ve extended the warranty on the water pumps though.
