Jeep Reliability – How Reliable Are Jeep Cars?

The Jeep as a name and brand is a testament to human ingenuity and resolve. The second world war is perhaps the single biggest stain in the history of humanity but it was also a hotbed for innovation. The Americans needed something that could tackle the rough terrain of the various battlefields and they needed it quickly.

A deadline of 75 days was set and three companies out of an initial 135 competed for the rights to make such a car. The three companies would be American Bantam, Ford, and Willys-Overland Motors.

American Bantam would actually be the first one to build a prototype, called the Bantam BRC 40 but they would be forced to drop out early from the running as the Army felt it was too small a firm to manufacture such a vehicle in the numbers and timeframe they needed.

Their prototype would be submitted to Willys and Fords. Both of them would come up with their own version of this prototype – the Ford Pygmy and the Willys Quad. Willys’ version would gain approval with Ford staying on as a secondary manufacturer of the Willys Quad.

Funnily enough, these vehicles were not known as the ‘Jeep’ yet. Ford called their cars the Model GPW while Willys referred to their’s as the Model MB. The first vehicle to come with the official “Jeep” branding would be the 1945 Willys CJ-2A, where the CJ represented Civilian Jeep, and the previous models also began to be referred by this moniker. The Jeep, was an instrumental part in the Allied victory as it could reliably tackle almost any surface while serving many purposes from being an ambulance to actually being run on railway tracks with modified wheels.

All of this might give the impression that the Jeep is a slam dunk when it comes to reliability but it isn’t that straightforward. That is why we will take a look at all the cars in the Jeep’s current line-up and see how reliable each one of these models is so we can arrive at a fact-driven answer to the question is Jeep reliable”

How Reliable Is Jeep Current Line-up?

Even though the primary objective of the original Jeep was to be as good as possible reliability-wise in as many different types of conditions as possible, the commercial side of Jeep’s repertoire hasn’t exactly become a byword for reliability. It is not bad, but it hasn’t exactly been a trendsetter either. There have been some models that have been more reliable than others.

This is extremely important for consumers as its history and inception can lull first-time buyers into thinking that the Jeep brand is some sort of an indestructible vehicle. These reliability scores paint a real-world picture of what it is like to own one of the Jeep models. So, here is a look at all the individual Jeep models.

Jeep Cherokee Reliability

This is one of the models that has dragged the Jeep name quite literally through the mud over the last few years. We looked at various reliability scores to get the most comprehensive reading on how reliable the Cherokee model is and sadly the picture is quite grim. Reliability Index gives it a score of 150 which isn’t anything to brag about. Similarly, Consumer Reports gave the Cherokee a rating of 2 out of 5 stars which is one of the worst reliability scores for an SUV.

Jeep Cherokee Reliability

Looking at the finer details gives a much clearer picture of why the Cherokee has scored so low. The model which was first launched in 1974 has a long history of being quite troublesome when it comes to its transmission. Over the years, many Cherokee’s have been recalled leading to a further decrease in its reliability scores. The transmission issues have been fixed in the latest models and only about 3% of current Cherokee’s suffered from transmission issue. The current major point of failure is the electrics. The braking system, suspension, and engine are some of the other major sources of issues when it comes to the Cherokee.

It is not all bad news though as there is a silver lining to all this. While the Cherokee does have its issues, most of them tend to be minor and the average repair time is under 3 hours. These issues are also mostly of the type that can be fixed at home itself even if the owner is only reasonably handy at fixing a car. The average cost for repair is under £400 annually. It also won’t require severe repair any more than any other SUV. To sum it up, the Cherokee isn’t too bad bit isn’t too great either as far as reliability is concerned.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Reliability

The Grand Cherokee as the name suggests is supposed to be a step up from the Cherokee but unfortunately, the reliability doesn’t improve. In fact, it takes things on the reliability front a step down compared to the Cherokee. It scores lower on the Reliability Index with the axle and suspension being the primary source of unreliability.

The engine and electricals follow closely. The average cost of repairs is also slightly higher at £415 but repair times still stay under 3 hours which is quite good. The Grand also manages to last slightly longer than the Cherokee. The reason the Grand manages to score lower is because of the slightly higher prevalence of severe issues. This is especially true for Grand Cherokees from 2011.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Reliability Red

The most recent models have become better but the age-old transmission issues are still quite prominent with electricals being almost as bad as the base Cherokee. The only solace is the repair time and repair cost which is still quite manageable and on par with some of the more reliable brands out there in the SUV segment.

Jeep Wrangler Reliability

We have one of the biggest injustices in the Jeep line-up in the form of the Wrangler. This is the only car in the current Jeep line-up that can trace its roots all the way back to the World War 2 era Jeeps and yet, the modern Wrangler is also the biggest source of shame for the Jeep brand. After years of getting negative reviews from customers, the Wrangler’s inadequacies were driven home with the Euro NCAP test at the end of 2018.

For the first time, the Euro NCAP awarded a car with a single star and the Wrangler has the infamy of being that car. The Wrangler is great at being an off-roader but it does not have the dependability that a Jeep branded car should have. Consumer Reports gave the car a score of just 12/100 in 2019 and it also featured on their list of least reliable cars.

Jeep Wrangler Reliability

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler was particularly notorious for reliability issues with as much as 9 recalls in that year alone. Most of these recalls were related to driver aid systems such as cruise control. Another really negative aspect of the Wrangler is the repeated number of complaints with regards to the quality of welding in the frame.

In fact, in some Wranglers, it was so bad that the steering of the car got adversely affected. The average cost of repairs varies a lot across the years but they are all generally on the higher side with many being north of the £1,000 mark. The 2012 Wrangler is the worst of the bunch with average repair costs being almost £4,000 which is quite monumental.

Another notorious issue associated with the Wrangler is the “death wobble“. This was most commonly manifested in the 2007 model and usually resulted in heavy vibrations that originate from the front axle and can sometimes be so bad as to make steering difficult.

Jeep Renegade Reliability

With the Renegade, we have the new kid on the block. The Renegade model was first launched in 2015 which means that there isn’t a lot of historical data available for this model. The Renegade was also a clean slate for Jeep to start mending its reputation for not so great reliability but Jeep didn’t fully utilise it. Reliability scores for the Renegade have been only slightly better than the other models with a slightly longer history.

Jeep Renegade Reliability

It is an average car with J.D. Power giving it a predicted reliability score of 2.5/5 for the latest model. The 2018 version of the Renegade is the one that has the most number of reliability complaints. This is a bit odd as the 2017 version was seen by many as the most reliable Jeep Renegade. The up and down trajectory with regards to the reliability of the Renegade points to the possibility of future models yet again suffering from a host of reliability issues.

For now, this model does not sit among some of the more desirable names in the world of SUVs. It is not the most popular Jeep either and that is why there isn’t a lot of data to get a concrete reading on the actual reliability of this model from Jeep’s line-up.

Jeep Compass Reliability

This is another car from Jeep’s line-up that has contributed to the brand’s image of being unreliable. J.D. Power and Associates gave it a reliability score of 2.5/5 which might seem average but is below par when compared to the scores that most SUVs get these days. Consumer Reports gave this model a score of only 1 out of 5.

They also placed the Compass on the bottom of their list of SUVs based on their reliability. Most of the issues arise from the transmission and some from the structural elements in the car. The brakes and suspension of the Compass have also been a source of problems on the reliability front.

Jeep Compass Reliability

The 2018 model has been the worst of the bunch with things improving for the 2019 and 2020 models. Of course, these cars are still relatively new and the scores could drop as owners drive them more but for now, it seems like Jeep has been trying to make their Compass models better and more reliable.

Jeep Renegade 4xe Reliability

This is the latest addition to the Jeep lin-up and as such it hasn’t had time for a lot of statistics to come in. It also happens to be the most different as it is a hybrid SUV and the verdict on acceptable levels of reliability in this segment is still out. For now, it is being predicted that the Renegade 4xe will have the same level of middling reliability scores as some of the other Jeep models.

The Reliability Of Jeep’s Rivals

Talking about the Jeep’s rivals does come with a few caveats. The different Jeep models in many ways are quite unique both in terms of concept and price. Yet, there are a few car models that can be considered as the primary rivals for Jeep. We will look at these one-by-one to see how the various Jeep models stack up against their biggest rivals.

Land Rover Discovery Reliability

One of the biggest rivals to many of the Jeep models is the Land Rover Discovery. It has been the go-to car for people looking for a serious off-roader. As such, it would be quite natural to assume that the Land Rover Discovery is a much more reliable car but the numbers suggest otherwise. Most of the models in Jeep’s line-up and the Discovery actually share very similar reliability scores.

Let’s begin with the average time off the road. The Discovery spends 2.42 hours on average off the road for repairs with annual repair costs coming in at £429 which is actually slightly more than some of the Jeep models. The axle and suspension on the Discovery is the biggest source of reliability issues with almost half of all reported issues being from this one component.

Land Rover Discovery Reliability

The electrical system and engine follow in a distant second and third place respectively. These numbers suggest one thing and that is the fact that there is very little that separates the Jeep models from Discovery and it all boils down to reputation. Both have equal chances of breaking down and require quite similar repair costs and times. The only difference could be down to the exact part that has the highest probability of failing.

Suzuki Jimny Reliability

The Jimny, despite its more affordable price point, is also a very worthy contender for the Jeep models, especially for people on a tight budget. The reliability is actually better in terms of pure numbers. It spends just 2.36 hours off the road for repairs and the average annual cost of repairs is just £200 which is half of what the Jeep models come in at.

Suzuki Jimny Reliability

Once again, it is the axle and suspension that is the most prone to developing issues which makes it quite similar to the Jeep models and most SUVs out there. The Jimny’s polarising looks and barely adequate power are what holds it back when it is stacked up against the various jeep models.

Toyota Land Cruiser Reliability

The Land Cruiser is another highly sought-after SUV model that directly competes with the Jeep models and there is a very good reason for that. Toyota has a reputation for being quite reliable and the Land Cruiser is no different. It has a decent Reliability Index score of 167 and spends just 2 hours on average off the road for repairs.

The braking system is the biggest source of unreliability with the fuel system, axle, and suspension following closely. Land Cruisers also tend to last longer than the models in Jeep’s lineup. The only downside is that when it does require repairs, it can be a slightly costlier affair as the average annual cost of repairs exceeds the £500 mark.

BMW X3 Reliability

The BMW X3 is another one of the Jeep’s popular rivals. As far as reliability is concerned, it is a touch ahead as well with an average time of 2.69 hours being spent on average off the road for repairs. The engine happens to be the most common source of reliability issues followed by the axle and suspension on the X3.

BMW X3 Reliability

As is common with German cars, the cost of repairs is certainly on the higher side with average repair costs per year being £552. German engineering is often seen as being of a higher quality and more reliable but this is mostly down to reputation as in the long run, maintaining a BMW X3 can cost more than any of the Jeep models. This once again reiterates the need for building up a great reputation.

What Makes Jeep Such A Reliable Brand?

All of this data comprehensively proves that the Jeep brand isn’t as bad in reliability terms as some might believe. They have had a few bad apples in their line-up over the years but they have also made plenty of cars that are actually on par with other cars in this segment that are often seen as possessing higher reliability.

The truth is that the Jeep models, at least the ones currently offered by brand offer reliability numbers that are on par with what can be considered as industry standard figures. Jeep’s reputation is already on the mend and some of the core values that made Jeep one of the stalwarts of World War 2 can still be seen in some of the current models.

Jeep Off Road Driving

They are rugged and can take on off-road conditions with aplomb. When they do develop problems, usually, they are easy to fix and if you are someone who is handy with tools and have a basic understanding of car repair and maintenance, most of these faults can be fixed by yourself.

Off-road vehicles by their very nature tend to put a lot of stress on components like the axle and suspension. At a cursory glance, it might seem like these parts are especially prone to developing problems on the Jeep models but a closer examination proves that the likelihood of such issues taking place is very similar to most of its rivals and in some cases is even lower. The cheaper cost of repair and relatively low time off the road for repairs are what ultimately make Jeep so reliable.

The History Of Jeeps Reliability

The Jeep brand has a long history and not all of it is pleasant. Its image during the war may have been a bit romanticised as none of the models that Jeep ever released have been able to stack up to the lofty expectations that its legacy has created. Maybe, because of this, cars that come with the Jeep brand are often subjected to a higher level of scrutiny. Here are a few important milestones in their history that affected the overall view of the brand and played a big part in moulding its current reputation among car buyers.

The Death Wobble

No car manufacturer would want the word “death” attached to their car in any way and while the ‘death wobble‘ might not be as fatal as it sounds, it is nevertheless a serious issue that has plagued many of Jeep’s most prominent models. As we have seen so far, the axle and suspension of certain Jeep models are particularly prone to developing issues.

Jeep Death Wobble

When poor tyre alignment is added to the mix, things can go bad really quickly and that is how the death wobble came into existence. While this phenomenon has been associated with many Jeep models in one form or another, the issue especially gained a lot of traction in 2007 when it felt like every other Jeep Wrangler on the road developed this dreaded wobble wherein the front axle would start oscillating and vibrating rather violently, compromising car control and driveability in the process.

Most new models seem to have fixed this issue but people looking to buy used Jeeps should ensure that the Jeep they are looking to buy isn’t plagued by this shortcoming. It can be fixed but you will need professional help to do it correctly.

The Jeep Wrangler’s dismal Euro NCAP rating

As alluded to earlier, the Wrangler had the dishonour of becoming the first car ever to be given just 1 start for safety at the end of 2018. This was mostly down to the lack of proper crash protection on this car. This is where Jeep runs into one of its biggest conundrums. When people think of a Jeep, they generally picture a certain design and shape that is very much akin to the Jeeps used in the war.

Jeep Wrangler's dismal Euro NCAP rating

As such Jeep as a brand cannot deviate a lot from this design ethos without sacrificing their unique image. The downside to hanging on to that nostalgic design is that it offers very little space for implementing the crash protection features that are standard on almost every other modern car. It has been reported that Jeep has been working steadily on remedying this as best as they can.

Jeep Cherokee Recalls

One of the most important aspects of any product that is sold is quality control. It is the final checkpoint that should be in place for all types of consumer products and cars are no different. It ensures that customers aren’t surprised by sudden issues or faults in their purchases. Sometimes, this step is not followed correctly and certain models can develop issues that can be widespread and the only solution is to recall all of those models that have been sold.

Jeep Cherokee Recalls

From a marketing point of view, such a recall is one of the worst things that can take place as far as the brand’s image and reputation are concerned. The Jeep Cherokee has had this debilitating effect as it has been the subject of multiple recalls over the year. This was especially bad in 2016 when every Cherokee manufactured over a period of five months had to be recalled as the right halfshaft on all of them had been manufactured with flaws and this part would fracture without any warning.

Jeep Wrangler’s Poor Welding

In 2018 and 2019, almost 18,000 Wranglers had to be recalled as a faulty welding joint in the suspension of the car would cause that part to break off causing a lot of steering issues. This was another nail in the coffin that was Wrangler’s long association with issues associated with the suspension. This would massively hurt the image of Jeep as a brand as 2017 had been a year where they had shown signs of slowly but steadily improving their reliability-related track record.

Jeep Wrangler's Poor Welding

The Current Situation

The Jeep brand as a whole has come a long way but they still have a long way to go as well. 2017 was a good year but that was followed by two years of some of the most dismal reliability-related issues that have set the brand back by many years. 2020 so far has been better but Jeep will have to work really hard to ensure that their brand image and reputation along with the real-world numbers are on par with the lofty expectations that people have from cars that possess the Jeep badge.

In Summary – Are Jeeps Reliable?

This is quite a loaded question and the answer isn’t as straightforward as a simple yes or no. As we have seen so far, the pure data might suggest that Jeep cars aren’t what you would call reliable and that their reputation for being unreliable is totally justified. However, when this data is viewed in relation to the primary competitors of the different models that Jeep sells, it becomes quite clear that Jeeps aren’t any less reliable than their rivals.

Barring a couple of their makes and models, most Jeeps are rated very similarly to their main rivals. A lot of the bad reputation is down to the fact that people often have massive expectations from the Jeep brand. After all, it is often portrayed as the Jeep that stood the test of one of the most devastating wars that mankind has ever seen.

Are Jeeps Reliable?

However, it is important to keep in mind that at the end of the day, Jeeps are SUVs and they will be noisy and they will develop problems with time just like any other SUV. The good news is that they do not do so when new and it takes a few years for the really serious problems to even start developing. If you are looking to buy a brand new Jeep, you can do so without any major apprehensions. If you are, however, looking to buy a used Jeep, do your research to make sure that it isn’t one of the duds that Jeep has made over the years.
