Currently have a 2015 tacoma, very nice truck, but this new 2017 Trailhawk has me hooked. The looks, the design, the features, etc.
Being used to good toyota reliability i am at a crossroads. it will be a 3 year lease (who knows i might buy afterwards) but i don't want a problem car and have always been afraid of Chrysler products.
Any honest feedback would be appreciated. This is a V6 model i am looking at.
Welcome to the forum!
You're going to get a mixed bag of results, however, I'd say you're asking for a biased opinion. Most people on this forum are current owners / enthusiasts.
I have a 2015 TH, that has a August 2014 build date. This is right in the midst of the transmissions that were / are having issues and failing. However, after being on the forum for over two years, the chatter about failed transmissions and transmission problems has slowed to a crawl. We used to have regular posts about transmissions being replaced, serviced, and Lemon Law questions / car retruns.
Now, as you can see from surfing the forum, a lot of our posts are about maintenance, mods and aftermarket accessories / toys, and off-roading / trip adventures.
In my biased opinion, as someone with a Cherokee that may one day have transmission problems, it's a fantastic vehicle and if you like it, I wouldn't hesitate to get a 2017...except I'd personally be looking at Hydro Blue and Firecracker Red.
Let us know when you pick up the keys!!
Edit: Forgot to add, I've only had one issue, and it was a PTU replacement a few months ago. I've had all regular TSB's and Recalls performed, and I'm at roughly 17k miles after 2+ years of ownership.
