Over Torqued Tranny for In-line 6 Cyl?
By Drive For 5 on
Vehicle
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.
Favorite Features
4x4 System, Styling, Easy to perform routine maintenance yourself, Nice "Teflon" coated rims, Char Gold Paint, Info Center.
Suggested Improvements
Smoother tranny shifting for 6 Cyl models, Full size spare underneath, Better looking cladding (should all look like Limited models), better overall performance and reliability.
