    My new 2012 Grand Cherokee Limited, Trail Rated with the Hemi has an off-road defect in that lower gears do not hold when coming down steep trails unless one goes to 1st gear only. Actually it happens on any steep hill (highway or off-road) and causes excessive use of the brakes.

    It is an excellent vehicle in all other aspects. I can’t believe Jeep would give it a “Trail Rated” rating.

    I own a new 2012 $47,000 Grand Cherokee Overland. Awesome until Jeep sends out a complimentry nav map upgrade. My won’t upgrade because the nav does not recognize the vehicle vin. Solution? Dealer has no idea and after 4 Jeep customer care people the solution it to bring the car to the dealer, let them experiment with it and page 4 of the owner manual says Jeep has no responsibility for a loaner while under experimentation. Jeep owners realize you may have a great car but there is no Jeep/Chrysler support behind your purchase. Your on your own! Buy a cheap second care to use while your care in being experimented with. The nav company new more the Jeep did. Yeah Mercedes designed the car, hmm, maybe I should take it to Mecedes for service? Maybe they will care because Jeep Corporate customer care does not nor do they care about thier dealers. Or as I was told each Jeep dealer is an independent business and their on their own to decide what the can and cannot fix! Scarry!!!! Yes Jeep/Chrysler is born in Detroit is really true, becuase that what you get old Detroit service.
