2018 Jeep Cherokee – Car Review – Fingers Crossed?

2018 Jeep Cherokee – Car Review – Fingers Crossed?
Jeep Cherokee
The ‘old’ Jeep Cherokee face has had major facial surgery and now represents the Jeep range much better.

Hi there. Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a piece on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. Practical Motoring did a fairly extensive review on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. If you’d like to see what they had to say, there’s a link at the bottom of this article.

But to summarise their impression here’s the rating table.

Jeep Cherokee

Now that’s a pretty good rating for Jeep and parent company Fiat Chrysler. If this rating had been done 12 months ago, there’s no way that four stars would have even been considered.

The MAJOR issue that Jeep in particular has, is their lack of customer focus. I was involved with two customers who had major failures with their Jeep Grand Cherokees Transmission.

And despite vehicles being off the road, the tardiness from the Fiat Chrysler Customer Assistance Centre was its usual self – terrible!

So if you want to take a risk with that service or lack thereof, then buy a Jeep. But whatever Jeep you buy, you best cross your fingers and hope that the reliability is way better than it was 12 months ago.

I’ve had some commentary from people that indicates Steve Zanulnghi, the Fiat Chrysler CEO, has grabbed hold of the poor customer experience and has taken steps to fix it.

I haven’t seen that and only time will tell.


I’m not really worried about using other companies reviews and opinions. There are top notch reviewers here in Australia and around the world who have access to a lot broader range of cars than I do and I’ll always add my ‘2 cents worth’ to their article.  I’m very much a newbie in the world of car reviews but I particularly like Practical Motoring for the way they present their information.

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.

thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
