Problems with the Tires

The tires on an SUV can make or break the ride, especially if planning to head off-road. That’s where the problem comes in with the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Look at this Edmunds review for more information. “My biggest WTH is I bought an odd road Overland model with Quadra Trac II 4×4, Select Train management, and it comes with cheap Bridgestone Ecopia tires that aren’t designed for anything all terrain and have dangerous ratings for driving on snow/ice/slick surfaces. It’s awful buying a brand new $55K off road vehicle and immediately spending $1000 on decent all terrain tires.”

Sadly, Jeep hasn’t issued any correspondence to discuss the disappointment with customers. The silence is deafening, proving that Jeep isn’t really the brand that cares about customer desires or needs. After all, the automaker put together an off-road-focused SUV and didn’t put on special tires. Either the company really has no idea about off-roading or was simply too cheap to make the upgrade.

Problems with the Electrical System

In a search for greatness, everyone hoped that the electrical system would at least be up to par. However, this is yet another area that just lets the driver down.

Here’s a Cars.com review that illustrates just one of the problems. “The Sirius XM malfunctions, so I’m going to have to look into having that fixed.”

These are not concerns that new car owners should be thinking about. Once a driver signs on the dotted line, all systems should be a-go. However, this is only one of many electrical system issues, and Jeep is aware of what’s going on. Service Bulletin #S2008000185 talks about trouble with the Uconnect voice recognition options, while Service Bulletin #S2008000175 goes on to say that the 8.4″ touchscreen display is facing electrostatic discharge failure. What’s going to be next? With the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s anyone’s guess what might malfunction down the road. What is known is that this model comes nowhere near hitting the bar for greatness, but rather, should be happy to boast of its mediocrity instead.
