1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I bought this Jeep used with 98,000 miles on it (4.0L six, 4x4). It had an oil pan leak, had no radio, needed tires, and had a crack in the exhaust. Once those items were addressed, I have to say that this Jeep is more comfortable and easy to drive than the 1992 Cherokee that I had before. My average gas mileage is 18.5, it doesn't burn any oil, and it always starts. The 4 coil suspension makes driving around town and long distance very comfortable on my back.

Best Features

Overall reliability is number one with me. Selec-Trac is great, the 4.0L six has such a great track record for durability and ease of maintenance.

Worst Features

I didn't like the 225/75R-15's and went with the 235 instead. I don't care for the shift points of the 42RE, but that's a small detail. I put an air-tube and a header on my GC, and that really livens up the performance of the 4.0L.
