Can't believe the deal I got on this
Jeep! 97000 miles and it's running
stronger than I could have asked.
Fuel economy is amazing compared to my
father's 4.3 V-6 GMC, I get 25-28mpg
on the highway! Handles like a dream,
and the Quadratrac is great. There
are some squeaks and little rattles,
but nothing overly noticeable.
Wonderful quality. Love the leather
seats, they are soft and comfortable.
Tons of room, I'm 6'2" and don't need
the driver's seat all the way back. I
love this Jeep more every day. I am
very confident it will go over 200kmi!
SUNROOF!!! Leather, Quadratrac Tons
of room. Sound system is great.
Towing capability, power from I-6 is
More rear cargo room, easier rear seat
folding. Chrysler's notorious tranny
probs....how many years has it been???
i have enjoyed the car immensely! great
for hauling kids & stuff. no major problems.
my only issue has been service related.
some sort of dealership rearrangement
took place and all jeeps were moved from
performance to dwanye lane. i have not
been particularly impressed with either
dwayne lane or town & country
service centers. since performance still
has jeep proficient service people - i
take all non warranty issues to them.
all of their service people have been
incredibly gracious. their hours are
much better, they provide pickup &
dropoff driver service & facilitate
rentals cars if needed. the only thing
that they no longer do is car washing!
see above - all of my issues are service
Reliability has been an issue.
Transmission failed at 43K ($2200).
Fuel pump failed ($600). Many leaks
(trans., axles, oil, etc.). Exhaust
header broke ($400). Many check engine
lights for sensors (four for pressure
sensor and one for oxygen sensor). At
165K miles, it is still driving strong
and looks good. I am shooting for 250K
miles. If you can stomach repairs, it
is a decent vehicle for the money.
Build quality is good, and styling is
the best. At 165K, it still looks and
runs as well as it did when I got it at
34K for $19.5K. If it runs to 250K
without any further large component
failures, I will buy another one.
Quality of Components
Transmissions Are An Issue
Sensors Die Too Readily
Fuel Pump Failures
grand cherokee has been reliable for
the most part.the only major repair
i've done is to replace the fuel pump
& regulator assembly.I pull a boat
with it frequently and the 4 liter
engine is a little week for towing,
but the performance of the 4 liter has
been very good to excellent.The four
wheel drive performs great.I've been
very pleased with this vehicle, in
fact, my wife and I agree that it's
the best vehicle we've ever had.We
love this vehicle!
premium sound system is the best i've
ever had.Interior design is sharp and
well organized.A little stiff ride but
overall is comfortable on trips.Very
dependable and reliable
four wheel drive shifter is confusing
to use.Lower body clading fades,rear
seats a little shy on leg room.A pain
to remove head rest's to fold down
