Over Torqued Tranny for In-line 6 Cyl?

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Bought my '96 Grand Cherokee Laredo from my folks in April '01. The SUV drives itself about 8 mph without hitting the accelerator. It constantly bangs in gear, especially reverse. It has had these problems since day 1 and the dealership told my folks that it's "normal". I'm worried, especially since it has only 57,XXX miles on it. I am considering upgrading to a full size SUV for my family. Drivers seat feels tight. Rear seat room is also tight. The child's car seat takes up most of the space. 4.0 In-line six cyl is adequate at best, wish I had the V8. Sluggish acceleration.

They are fun to drive. They have lots of power and go anywhere. They're nice to go on vacation in because of the smooth ride.

Review

at 70,000 miles I now need a $2239.00 major transmission repair. I verified the mileage before purchasing this car in March 2002. I thought the mileage was low and my wife and I are in our 50's and we don't drive rough or go 4-wheelin in the woods. The car went quickly from slow shfting one day to big time slipping the next day and getting lost in no gear at all before the automatic transmission shifted to high gear. terribly disapointed.

I LOVE MY JEEP!

Review

The jeep had 56K miles on it when I bought it. It has been a great vehicle. It now has 163K miles and has never left me stranded. The only repairs have been to replace the front wheel bearings at about 130K miles and again at 161K miles My daughter has a '93 Cherokee Sport and that is what inspired me to buy a Jeep. I just bought a 1999 Jeep Grand and I most likely will continue to stay in the Jeep family.

This is my first Jeep product. I bought this Jeep Charokee in 2000 with 95K miles. My wife thought I was crazy. It now has over 125K miles and still performing great.

Fun Car.....Poor Reliability

Review

I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 brand new and had absolutely no problems with it until I hit 70k miles. Then everything started to fall apart (radiator, thermostat, heated seats, shocks, hoses, belts, and a clicking noise is coming from the transfer case which make me afraid to take it in for fear that the dealer will tell me to replace the transmission). Other than that, it's been a great car, and I still get have as much fun driving it as I did the day I bought it.

Next one will be another Jeep

Review

Was very leery about buying this vehicle with all the negative reviews from earlier years. Dealer offered a 48000 mile warranty no charge to clinch the deal. Haven't regretted my decision from day one. Very dependable vehicle, excellent dealer service, respectable milage (17.5 mpg overall). Now with 121000 miles on, it rides like the day I got it. Next one will be another Jeep.
