These older Jeeps, along with the newer models are some of the best all around vehicles out there. I have owned one for nearly a year after buying it from a close friend who had driven it for years and taken care of it. Its reliability is unbeatable. It's also rugged and ready for about anything you could possibily need it for. One of the bigger advantages of the Grand Cherokee is that it has the most room of most any Jeep model so there is plently of leg room, and carrying room which is important for someone who packs it once a week with a large sound system and instruments or camping gear. I would highly recommend this vehicle.
The 4 wheel drive is great in tight spots whether it be snow or mud.
This is an older model so be ready to make some upgrades such as a CD player, ect. Also some detailing for roughly used Jeeps is also required typically.
