1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV

Review

I love my Grand Cherokee! It is a very spacious and comfortable SUV. The Jeep is great off-road. Being a Jeep expert, make sure the Jeep has been maintained. Both the Inline-6 and V8 have seen 300k miles in many instances. The drivetrain and suspension are of less quality. The trannys are prone to break, some at 90k miles and others at 200k miles. Never get a tranny flush or a radiator flush! Both components will likely fail. The 1993=1998 Grand Cherokee (ZJ) is maintenence-intensive. Mine has 135k miles, has required a new steering box, starter, battery, steering stabilizer, many brake components, shocks, and various bushings in the front suspension. Great Vehicle for the expert.

Best Features

The Power of the V8 is better than the adequate inline-6. The information center is nice. Also the Selec-Trac transfer case is very reliable. Solid axles great for off-road.

Worst Features

Transmissions, Transmissions, Transmissions!
