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.

Best Features

4x4 System, Styling, Easy to perform routine maintenance yourself, Nice "Teflon" coated rims, Char Gold Paint, Info Center.

Worst Features

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.
