1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV
Review
Bought this vehicle off lease with 28k miles. Needed a high-clearance vehicle for work as I occasionally have to drive on dirt/gravel roads. I really wanted a 4Runner, but thought I'd save $3,000 or so and "Buy American" - BIG mistake. Interior trim is peeling off of the doors and the seat fabric failed early. For some reason, I'm always banging my foot on the door lip getting in & out. Has that "tippy" feel on corners. Worst of all, I had to replace the transmission at 65k mi, spending the $3000 I "saved" on the purchase, but it still doesn't work that smoothly.
Favorite Features
The engine seems to run reliably & the vehicle performs reasonably well on unpaved roads, hills, etc. Ground clearance is good as advertised.
Suggested Improvements
Cargo area is surprisingly small & poorly designed. For example, the spare tire is mounted on the "wide" side of the fold-down rear seat, making it narrower than the "narrow" side for actually loading cargo. DUH!
