Our first AWD Jeep GC
By JerryP on
Vehicle1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewVehicle purchased as a lease return with 36K miles. Overall it has been a good car for comfort w/o big money spent for repairs. AWD is nice in wet & rainy Puget Sound weather. The V8 gas mileage is just over 12 MPG after almost 5 years of ownership. Recently hadthe car at a Seattle dealer and were advised that the rear-wheel bearings and CV boots needed replacing. Other reviewers have also noted the interior failures of the linings of the doors but stuff like that IS fixable! Overall we are generally satisfied and feel we have chosen widely, having bought it used and not shelling out the original invoice of around $33K.
Best FeaturesAWD, big V8 for highway entry, visibility, CD player, adjustable leather seat for driver, outside temp monitor
Worst FeaturesInterior door panels material has failed twice, big repair cost just incurred from Rear bearings, gas mileage is poor; even for a V8
