1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Overall, this has been a great Jeep. The 4.0 is one of the best engines ever made, despite some ancilliary equipment that was poorly designed (water pump, exhaust manifold, crankshaft position sensor). I've got over 130K miles on it and it is still going strong. I am a fanatic about maintenance, and changing fluids before they are due, which is why all my cars are good for 300k miles.


Best Features

A great vehicle for snow, and certainly looks better than the new ones.


Worst Features

Like many other reviewers, want better door trim, reliable heated seats, working radio.

Review

This is the best car i have ever had. The 4x4 works geart and you can't go wrong with the I6 its the best motor in the world! I have 109,000 miles on it and the only thing that goes out is the radiator and the power streeing. This Jeep looks great with a 4in lift and 31s and it goes any where at anytime through mud and snow it does it all. Gas miles will drop if you lift it. If I could do it all again I would just add tires and rims if you do that you'll be able to go most place a Landrover can with a lower price!


Best Features

Lift kit, I6 motor, and 4x4!


Worst Features

Better radiator and power steering pump.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV


Review

I recieved my car for Christmas of 2004. Since then, it has been a great car. The guy before me was not the best to it. It has a few dents and dings but not too bad. All I've had to replace was the radiator. I'm definitely going to buy another Jeep Grand Cherokee after I give this one to my brother.


Best Features

Excellent handling and comfort


Worst Features

Better city gas mileage

Review

I bought this vehicle with 140,000 miles and it runs really good! I had a couple of sensors go out, but the dealer replaced them. Other than that, it is awesome! It got me around in the Blizzard of '06 in Colorado! Excellent sound system, love the leather, just looks like new! I will buy another Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited when the time comes and give this one to my son!


Best Features

The leather seats


Worst Features

Better gas mileage

Review

Bought the beast with 79k miles and now has 215k. Maintained every 3-4k and only major issues were front steering knuckles, sway bar links and most recently the exhaust manifold. 4.0L 6 cylinder engine is a workhorse.


Best Features

Low maintenance for 215k.


Worst Features

Mileage issues.
