      You forgot this Jeep is a piece of crap. Transmission is really bad on these.

      Before you buy, google "jeep cherokee transmission". Don't make the same mistake I did.

      But if you do, at least buy the extended warranty. And make sure you have a backup vehicle because my local Jeep dealer is out of loaner cars.

      I am considering buying a used Trail Hawk, but I am apprehensive because of the issues I've been reading with the transmission.

      those issues were only really prevalent with the first 2-3 year models starting in 2014. They were resolved that is why in 2019 they still use the 9-speed for many of there model vehicles.

      I’ve heard of many owners having problems with this vehicle. Sadly people only buy Jeep because of the name. That’s why I only buy Toyota.

      That was for the 2014-2015 models due to the transmission being the first 9 speed transverse. Honda, Acura, Landrover were using that transmission as well and they all were having the same issue. 2016 and up they resolved the problems you reads about.

      Make you sure you buy every warranty possibly for this shitbox. The PTU is sure to fail. The EPB module is sure to fail. The whole car is a joke. Buyer beware.

      Ok, my Trailhawk has 157,000 km and the PTU that you claim sucks is still in tact working flawlessly. Oh and your issue is the Electronic brake, wow so revealing.

      Had my 2017 Cherokee Limited for almost two years. Great spec. Super smooth on long runs. Capable in a Minnesota 14" snowfall. Sufficiently capable on gravel, sand and mud. Yes, in auto there is a split second of lag but pick-up/kick-down is good for overtaking. The 9 speed box ensures you have great mid-range acceleration. Sure, it's not a 'rock hopper'. That's why I also have a 2013 JK. The KL is my everyday, smooth, 30mpg car and I have had no issues at all with it.

      Paul J In reply to AlphaPac

      It's not trash at all. Yes all car manufactures had problems with the ZF-9 speed for the first 2-3 years. This wasn't a Chrysler issue only. They still use the 9-speed in many of there models since mid 2016 and up they resolved the serious issues.

      From my own personal experience I have found Jeeps to have poor gas mileage and low reliability, I've owned 3 Jeeps in my life-all had terrible gas mileage and all had all too frequent issues that needed fixing. Just bought a Honda CR-V and I couldn't be happier.

      Bro, you bought a Jeep and complain about poor gas millage? Based on your criteria, Jeep should have never been in your potential list of SUV's to own. Honda is a nice SUV but it lacks Torque and power for people such as myself. I don't mind higher MPG if the power is there. I assume you also had a Jeep with the legendary straight 6. That engine was bullet proof but boy does it love GAS.

      Active Drive II only comes with the off road suspension, and it's way too harsh to be your wife's grocery getter. And there's NO WAY the V6 puts out 271 HP, the 4 cylinder turbo Escapes and Equinoxes leave this thing in a hurry.

    • Hani Pascha
      Hani Pascha In reply to Ken O'Day

      Amigo that Active drive II on that Jeep means your vehicle weights 4600 pounds. When you say no way it has 271hp the reason you might think that is because an the preceived feel of an engines performance output is highly dependent on the weight of the vehicle it's has to move. That same engine is used in the much lighter and aero dynamic police interceptors and they are fast as hell. In essence it's called physics. Oh and that's a matter of opinion on weather you find the suspension too stiff for a daily driver. If that was the case why didn't your wife get the Limited Trim with Active Drive I instead of II?

      Peter In reply to Ken O'Day

      Are you kidding me? The 3.6 V6 puts out 300hp. This Jeep comes with the 3.2 with low resistance pistons and does 271hp and that is indeed a fact. Why do you think it loves GAS?

      I have had mine for 3 years and I have payed ZERO dollars in maintenance other than oil changes, cabin filter replacement and Oil filter. I do my own oil changes but they will change your oil for free the first 3 years of ownership.

      I’m not sure why people complain about the transmission on the Jeep Cherokee. I’ve had mine for a year now with no issues. If you haven’t personally owned a Jeep Cherokee, then you have no right in assuming it’s a bad vehicle. I’m a unbiased reviewer, and I believe the Jeep Cherokee is a good vehicle. The only car better than the Jeep Cherokee is the grand Cherokee

      Because they never owned them and are simply going off outdated information from the first year production models.

      It's definitely not an off-road car, but we had twelve inches of snow fall one day in January 2018, in MN and my 2018 Cherokee got me home (20 miles) no problem, when all the clown cars were getting stuck, crashing, or sliding off the road.

      Don't pretend to be a car guru if you don't know your shit !
      All Wheel Drive means ALL WHEEL DRIVE !... Like a Subaru !
      A Primary Front Wheel Drive with an electric clutch that engages rear differential when slip is detected IS A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE !
      A Transfer Case with a stick through the floor is NOT the only 4WD !

      Mopar accessories still only offers the worst cargo privacy cover with its HUGE hole (no privacy) and is still not mountable flush to the rear seats. Would you approve a hole in a sedan trunk or truck bed cover??

      I have the 2015 TH. 66k on it, I have had to replace the battery, and I'm now getting a engine light which according to autozone is a 2nd cyl misfire which may be due to spark plugs... But off road that rear locker is awesome. I do wish it had 2 more inches of ground clearance.
