Reviews are reviews. In other words opinions of the individual writing the review.
They can be biased in my opinion.
Now with that said I have a 2014 Limited w/AD2, V6, Tow, Complete tecch group etc, but no Prem sound and sunroof though.
Also no issues with mine considering 2014 was probably the most problematic year for the Cherokee
So I am biased for this vehicle with only one real caution. The rear sight lines are horrible looking out the back while attempting to back up.
Back up camera helps to a point but having the cross path detection and rear sensors go a long way to mitigate the issue. To be honest most vehicles in Cherokee's class look to have the same issue. @Array
had some great points. A Mopar Max-Care extended service plan may very well allay your concerns in the dependability area. You can get one to suit your situation. I believe the Life time one is not available in Canada though.
At a minimum I would include the cross path detection and if the purse allows get the complete package. It is a great system and is very passive to the point you forget its even active. That is until its needed.
Tow is another great option. A side benefit is, it will protect you and the vehicle in a rear end crash better than if without the tow hitch. That is from personal experience.
$10k is a great deal on this vehicle and with the right options you may never want to give it up. Actually I am enjoying mine as much as the day I bought it! And that is 3 years later.
