An update on the Grand Cherokee Summit - Coming up 3 years old


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all,


Been a while since I have been on here.


The Summit is now coming up to 3 years old and I still have great pleasure in driving it. In general there has been no major problems.


The tyres did get replaced at about 27,000 ish - cannot remember exactly.


The lacquer on the alloy wheels started to lift at about 2 years and this is a known fault. Jeep replaced them with new, no problem. Wish BMW had done that with my Wife's 635 convertible! They re-sprayed those every year! Now out of warranty and need doing yet again! Be happy to change the car, but the Wife won't let me!


It took me over a year to get the free airline tickets to New York and only when I threatened Meridien Majestic in Bournemouth - no longer Jeep dealers - with action to put me back in the situation I was before the deal. In the end we got a Virgin card with £1,000 on it. Which was very good as my Wife is not good at long flights. So we took a cruise instead!


The latest battle is very annoying. They deny that the 3 years free servicing is anything to do with Jeep and was down to Meridien Majestic. This is not true and I have emailed Jeep with the original mailer they sent me.


I am sure it will get sorted and those from Jeep head office I have spoken to have been very polite and helpful. But it leaves a bad taste that I have to work at it!


Doubt I will change the car for some time. It is still doing the job I want it to and actually doesn't get used as much as I used to drive it and it's predecessor. I know travel round the country on business and radio surveys using my Wildax Solaris XL, Citroen 6.3M panel van motorhome.  Basically a home from home.


Best regards

Hey Chris good to hear from you and hope you are well.


Sounds like HQ are sorting the situation. If not let us know.

An update,


Having produced the original leaflet they sent to me which states:


'3 years free servicing'


And informing them that I specifically asked and had confirmed by Merdian Majestic that it included the third year service, they are now stating that it only includes the first two years, which covers for 3 years!


So sad that they have taken this stance. I have been pleased overall with the vehicle, but after chasing for a year to get the equivalent of my air line tickets, then the wheel arch trim falling off and still not that well fitted as well as being a different colour and now this, I am very disappointed.
