Vehicle: 1998 Jeep Cherokee SE 2dr SUV 4WD

I've had the Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 3 years. I haven't had any REAL BIG problems yet. One major thing to keep in mind: it makes a humming sound in the rear. I heard it's a common problem with the JGC's. The cab is extremely noisy, especially in the back seat. The 4WD also takes about a 1/4 mile to 'pop' back into 2WD. Taking corners on the 4WD is also a chore. Overall, I like the Jeep and would consider buying another, just beware of the 'hum', it will drive you NUTS!!
