2016 Jeep Cherokee

Anyone using as a daily driver a 2016 Cherokee in the Latitude or Limited trim? I currently have a 2017 Malibu and while I appreciate most everything in the car, at 6'3" 212lbs I feel the seats are a bit narrow. Also, a few other things are causing me to consider a crossover.

I have test driven most every previously owned crossover out there and have decided I like it better than the Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Hyundai, Kia, GM products.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with Mastercraft. She won't even be pulling her.

I'm a Jeep dealer, we sell a TON of them new and used (I have 2 16s on my lot right now with less than 10k miles right now I'm located in iowa). It is a smaller SUV only way only you're going to get around the seat problem is going to something bigger (grand cherokee, journey, durango staying within the FCA family)

I'd check into the tranny reliability. I've heard a lot of trouble with them from a Jeep dealer friend.....

The seats in the Cherokee are fine. The seats in the Malibu are a too narrow and short for me. Where in Iowa? I find myself there periodically.

PM me is you prefer. Curious as to the transmission issue mentioned in the other post as I have seen that as well online. Heard the 2016 did not have that issue.

Maybe Subaru?? Daughter has a Crosstrek and is 6'0" Volleyball middle. She loves it and no issues at all. Not a power monster but great gas mileage. Also, not as pretty but Forester or the faster Forester XT.

can't beat a Subaru. We have had two Outbacks and looking to a 2018 Outback Touring with a 6 banger this time.
