That jeep commercial where they show a
mole tunnel of snow that comes to a
stop sign, stops, makes a turn and
keeps going. Well I laugh everytime I
see that commercial because it's just
about the truth. I don't think there
is anything that will stop a jeep
except someone who is out & out using
stupidity. Go for it own one, and
love the experience.
Handling-I can take the jeep around
most cloverleafs @ 50-60 mph and not
worry about slide, sway, or other bad
handling. 4WD-I'm a very aggresive
driver and I've only had the vehicle
skid once seriously on an outside
downhill pitched away from roadcenter
curve. It handled very well.
Improvements - They've made them. I
bought another Jeep Grand Cherokee for
#1 They got rid of the spare tire and
conceled it under the rear cargo area.
#2 They made the door handles a single
pull mechanizm that doesn't require
you to use your thumb.
