WK1 Troubleshooting / Problems Discussion / Dealer ServiceIf you are having some problems with your Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and need assistance in troubleshooting and diagnosing the problem, this is the proper place to discuss it. Were you treated fairly or poorly at a dealer? Warranty issues? Let us know.
Right now I have a 2008 SRT-8 that we use to play with at the drag strip and tow the toys. No issues except for the radiator hose which was an easy fix. My only concern is the miles and the stress of towing the boat and toys over time.
What are common problems once these things hit 100k miles? I love the SRT but the miles are getting up there and I am debating trading it in on a new RAM truck.
I was going to do the same thing but the one I was looking at sold, my dad has an 08 with 92k and I advised him to sell it before 100k, I thought I heard a whine in the rear while going 80+ and he thinks he will only get 15k for it but I think a bit more cuz she is sweet still.
Go with your gut on this but don't wait too long cuz the tranny on these are junk lol
I was considering trading mine in for the same reason. (99K) the dealer would probably have made an offensive offer on a trade in and I'd have to pay $2000-$3000 in taxes on whatever I bought. You can get a good 3yr 36K Chrysler extended warranty for about $2500 which is what I did. I'm thinking I will get my $2500 back in parts/labor and I get to keep the Jeep with the peace of mind that if/when she breaks down I'm covered. Good luck
