Average. Earlier Grand Chrerokee's where dealer queens, not to a low part though to not being made for long full speed blasts on the Autobahn, e.g. Overheating was an issue. Also, the earlier VM Diesles (and non Diesel SUVs are a tough sell in Europe) were also less than stellar in reliability terms.
Things have improved though, later models seem much better, and ironically it seems that the Fiat Jeeps (Cherokee and Renegade, with the later being very popular in Eruope) make their owners quite happy. Yes, still not Lexus levels of satisfaction, but nowhere near what you would expect a product to be when you come of "Detroit of old" and "Fix it again Tony" times and imagine their collaboration. The 9 speed auto might be a bit of a troubled unit, but then again, most DCTs on the market are too (ford & VW especially).
Reputation wouldn't stop me from getting a Jeep, to put it that way....
