2023 Cherokee Reliability

No recalls affected the 2022 Cherokee and (so far) the 2023 model, but the 2021 model was recalled twice for issues including front lower control arms that may fracture and a transmission oil cooler hose that could leak. 2020 models were also recalled, this time for a faulty rearview camera display image and a steering rack gear that could fail.

On a positive note, the number of complaints by owners is also relatively low and the 2022 J.D. Power Quality & Reliability score is a stellar 82 out of 100, which bodes well for ownership.
