1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

No major hitches, with little mods It did Moab wonderfully. On road quiet and roomy. Best front seats of anything I have sat in. Modest 6 banger performance is sufficient. Plan on keeping it till I cant find parts.


Best Features

Ease of mods, maintenance (try plugs and oil filter on the V engines), front seats, rear load capacity.


Worst Features

Modernize the engine don't get rid of it.

Review

This Jeep has very high miles, regular up keep no major problems, only ball joints at 175,000 miles, very comfortable ride, and everything still works. Always drove a Chevy, but thought I would try something else, glad I did, it has a v-8 and I get 24 average miles to the gallon according to the tripometer. The paint looks great everything is original except for the custom stereo.


Best Features

Sun roof is awesome, handles great in snow, awesome power if ya need it. :) Comfortable.


Worst Features

I like it the way it is!

Review

Bought new in '96, now with 110K. Runs great, always starts. Have always done routine maintenance and that has paid off. Lately though I am putting more money into it each year. Recent radiator, AC leaks, 1st muffler/exhaust replacement last year. Good brakes, strong engine. Take care of it and it will do likewise.


Best Features

Very comfortable interior as well as a smooth ride. Easy dash controls and a good all around SUV.


Worst Features

Some wind noise at highway speed, gas mileage could be better,

Review

I bought this vehicle in 2004 at 190,000 miles and its still running good. I'm at 196.6 now. I bought it because i was really impressed with the interior. It was in excellent condition. 4wd still works very well. The previous owner did a lot of routine mainteance on it which is why it still runs well. I paid $4000 for it. Overall, I'm very satisfied with. I just wish the gas mileage a bit better. The paint still looks as it was new.


Worst Features

Gas mileage.

Review

My Jeep has taken me through college and now with 4 children. I don't doubt that if I keep up with regular maintenance that it will easily last another 150000 miles. It is the only one of our cars we trust in all forms of weather.


Best Features

Comfort, stereo, power, versatility.


Worst Features

Add leg room for rear passengers.
