Just turned 6000 miles on my 2015 Limited 4X4 purchased in December. Not one problem, actually look forward to driving my jeep during my commute to work. Mileage since purchased new 29.7 MPG. My last three tank fulls have been over 30 MPG, confirmed with mileage app and dash. Drive 90% freeway which includes commute traffic. After 4000 miles motor break in, milage increased one MPG.
Mileage MPG also includes towing my corvette on trailer 350 miles round trip to track event.
One happy 2015 Jeep owner here.

I have had my 2015 Limited 4x2 since Nov 2015. 12000 miles and no problems. Runs like a top. Love the milage, towing, power, range on a tank of fuel! I drove my 2004 JGC Limited V8 201,000 miles. I hope to get 300,000 out of this diesel.

Turned 12,500 miles, not one problem.
Traded in my 2001 JGC limited 4X4 V8 with 206,000 miles. Everything still worked, no oil leaks.
Do enjoy 29 mpg getting with diesel, compared to 17.5 with m 2001.

I'm at 56500 miles and I had no issues until a deer hit me coming out of Lake Tahoe on a road trip. Only had two exhaust regenerations in that time as well but I drive with the paddle shifters and run it through the power band to 3 grand and shift. Still averaging over 30 mpg on the highway and 22 city down here at sea level.

Bought my 2015 4x2 Limited Eco Diesel late in December 2015. Almost 9K miles and no problems. Only a weird glitch early on with the ventilated seats, where the fan would turn off by itself. It happened a couple of times, but the problem was solved by turning the ignition off. After restarting all was good. Hasn't happened again in many months. So far very happy.

2015 Summit 4x4, 1500 miles with absolutely no issue so far. 26 mpg mostly local suburbia driving. My only complaint is the gps/keyboard lockout while in motion.

Picked up my new 2016 Summit 4 X 4 in Grand Junction Co and drove it 6,000 miles in 2 1/2 weeks. Got 26 to 28 1/2 MPH running 70 to 80MPH up and down mountains. Plenty of power and great range. Did not use any oil yet and everything worked great. I did have a Electronics issue were we got a Steady tone coming thru speakers. Called the assist line and sent me to a local Dealer even having a conference call while in transit. Got to the Dealer and ended phone call and tone stopped. Dealer checked codes and nothing there. Might have been an issue with Microphone feedback with my Apple 6. Only Happened once! I got in and out in less than 15 minutes with a smile on my face. Love the Adaptive Cruise Control! Very pleased with the Jeep and all the neat features.

Our 2015 Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 Ecodiesel is exactly 12 months old now, purchased December 2015, with 10,000 miles on it. No issues except for an intermittent check engine light which began right after the servicing for the TSB on the shifter software issue. No light for a while now and everything works fine. However, we are only getting 20-21 mpg, 90% town driving with little highway at 5500 elevation here in Denver.

And I thought I had a lot of miles on my 2015 JGCED. I'm at 34,xxx miles with an in-service date of November 2015. Just bought it with 26k back in September. No issues since my ownership.

My 2014 was in the shop twice a month.

I skipped the shifter recall because I need to be able to open the driver's door when I'm LOOKING WHERE TO GO WHILE GETTING UNSTUCK IN THE SNOW (which happens A LOT here in West Michigan, during the winter). Mine's a 2015 factory-ordered Grand Cherokee Overland Diesel, and it was delivered to me around Labor Day 2015. I have only about 11,750 miles on it so far (as of January 12, 2017), and I have had NO PROBLEMS AT ALL with it, except for the factory's original mistake of installing the wrong tires when it was delivered to the dealer. The dealer conned me into believing that those were the correct tires when I took delivery of my vehicle. However, after I drove my new vehicle home I checked it out again and I did some research. That's when I realized that I had been totally conned. Both the dealer and the factory refused to correct the "incorrect tire" problem -- which was/is un-f*%#king believable! That's right, my Jeep GC with the factory Off-Road II package was delivered with regular "street" "all-season" tires, instead of the "all-terrain" tires that were supposed to be on it with the Off-Road II package (per my build sheet and per Jeep's website). Neither FCA nor the dealer (in Battle Creek, Michigan) would correct this mistake! I confirmed this on Michelin's website, which describes both the" all-season" tires that were (incorrectly) installed on my vehicle by FCA and also describes the "all terrain" tires which were supposed to have been installed on my vehicle in the first place. I also confirmed this with my local Discount Tire store, where I buy all of my replacement tires for my vehicles, and where I ended up trading in the "factory" tires (with, by that time, 400 miles on them) in exchange for a set of 4 "correct" "all-terrain" Michelin tires. It still cost me an extra $400. :-(

I read nearly every post on the diesel before I purchased one in May 2015, I was fully expecting to have to bring it in for something, but thus far the car has been great. I haven't had to do anything except rotate the tires, change the oil and add DEF. Great in the snow, great on the highway ~26mpg with more highway driving than city.
Thus far I have 33k.
The first oil change I took it to the dealer because I wanted to make sure I used the right mopar DEF, I walked by the service bay and saw a pile of empty Peak DEF boxes, so I took a picture of that (just in case I had any issues), and then I've use the Peak DEF ever since.

I currently have 22k miles on my 15 Grand Cherokee High Altitude which I bought brand new. Went into the shop at 500 miles with a check engine light that sorted itself out by the time the diesel tech picked it up from the service lane. The dash has been replaced due to defective adhesive and front brakes have been replaced all under warranty. Other than that I just pulled 29 mpg and have had no other real issues. I love the jeep, my only complaint is I wish they would have a better service program at most dealerships with loaners on hand. I paid less for my Infiniti than this jeep and the level of care and convenience their service dept. provided was much higher for the money. The same applies to the dealerships as well, I visited about 6 and all but one could use a facelift and to be classed up a bit. So I guess my complaints apply to the brand itself.

I just made a 2500 mile trip towing 5800 pd trailer. I set cruise control at 55 and got 17.6 mpg. The ride was excellent.... and at destination I had a luxury vehicle to tool around in.

I made the last payment of a 36 month 0 interest loan yesterday on my 2014. As I have been saying for the last four years......... If there is something I can purchase in the same price group that can do this let me know. Pick up trucks need not apply.

If these problems have somehow compromised my resale I would like to be compensated, other than that I'm good. There was a posting on the internet by an legal group who seem to be putting together a class action addressing that. I'm in the wait mode......

17,206 miles and not one problem. We also tow a 6600# boat and trailer.

It's a beast and love how FCA didn't muffle the Diesel engine sound.

Update: 9,400 miles on my 2016 Summit 4x4 since picking up in September. No oil used and No problems. Just took it in to an non-selling dealer and was given excellent (while you wait) service. Jeep gave me 4 free oil changes and added 5 gal of DEF at $24.00 bucks total. I have gotten over 26 mpg average running usually 80 MPG and lots of in town. A call out to BlueBonnet Jeep In New Braunfels Tx and service writer Billy Jean Mele for a very pleasant one hour experience in the Express Service Lane. I would have bought the Jeep from them but only one Pearl White 4x4 Summit in US when i bought it.

Hope the EPA sees the advantage of a Full Size fuel efficient 5 person SUV that gets great mileage! You see modified Trucks blowing Coal & 80's BIG trucks all day long and EPA picks on Jeep. MAGA!

You can open the door as long as the driver's seat belt is fastened.

It is what I have experienced, seat belt on no "park"...........I was concerned with hooking up the trailer and almost considered not having the upgrade. I am managing. I don't get stuck in snow and the backup camera is good for hooking up. Avoiding that recall might come back and haunt one someday.

If you are in 4X4 Low, the new shift software will not shift into park if you open the door with your foot off the brakes.
