I owned a 2000 Jeep GC Laredo that I got rid of in 2010. Loved it, never had major issues minus the damn door locks always breaking. ha ha
I want to get a newer 2018 but everyone I know tells me to avoid them. They are always in the shop, expensive to fix etc.... Consumer reports doesn't help this trend in thinking. While I know everyone here likely loves theirs I am asking for some honest feedback from the group on whether I'll regret it or if I should look for certain year models.
Thanks for any feedback.

They are technological wonders that look like spaceships compared to previous models.
There's a lot that can go wrong, and much of it is beyond the average hobbyist.
BUT
They are amazing vehicles, and like any other vehicle, if you pay attention to them, they will treat you right.

TBH, people have been saying that about Grand Cherokees for all of recorded GC history..."Theyve all got bad transmissions", "Theyve all got electrical problems" etc etc but here we are...you still cant drive to the corner and back without seeing a GC from pretty much every generation still on the road.

Hey there, just joined. I have a 2018 Sterling Edition, that I bought brand new. I've never really had any problems with mine....not yet anyhow. I put it away for the winter ? and just drive it on the weekends, in the summer. If you have any questions, ask away! ?. Kevin

Reviews can be different. It depends on the personal preferences of car owners. To understand the car you need to get behind the wheel. So you will understand your car or not. I like the Grand Cherokee. I have 2019. After operating the car for about 6 months I decided on some improvements. My version is The Tuning Jeep - Grand Cherokee (Wk2) body kits https://rng-t.com/body_kit/jeep/jeep-gc-wk2-2011-18-v1/. Such body kits protect the body from trouble on the road and when driving off-road. The front bumper weight increases the downforce of the front of the car

The very reason my uncle doesn't like the new techy vehicles.
