Review

This vehicle has been one of the better vehicles I have owned. I do most of the PM on the vehicle, so I know it's done right.The main problem I've found with the vehicle is the exterior paint job from the factory, which easily chips and requires touch-up on a regular basis. I've never owned a vehicle longer than this Jeep, so I guess it says something for my satisfaction with the product.

Review

Wife loves the styling. I hate fixing everything. Buy yourself a service manual otherwise you will make the $tealership rich. These vehicles are bought broken and you have to fix them to make them work right.

Review

I've had this Jeep for 3 1/2yrs and had no problems. I have it serviced regularly and change oil religiously. I've had other Jeeps and definately recommend the 5.2L engine. It seems smoother, has more get up and go and pulls a trailer much better.

Review

My Jeep has been nothing but good to me. I really use it off road plus drive it to work everyday. It's been the perfect vehicle for someone who truly uses their 4WD. In winter, I've driven it through a solid foot + of snow for hundreds of feet and it made it (barely).. try that in a Ford Explorer HA! Great vehicle for the northeast

Review

I've been in other SUV's and trucks and nothing has been like this vehicle. I have truly enjoyed driving this SUV for the past several years and not had any major repairs or constant worries like you would have with other high mileage vehicles. I purchased the vehicle at 95K miles and in 3 years have added another 60K miles.

Love my '97, but scared of new models

Review

Thus far, my 1997 GC Ltd has been amazingly reliable. As expected, after 105,000+ miles, small problems have been showing up the past 6 mos. My latest concern is U-Joints. Prior to that, a leek in the antifreeze line, and three new batteries in 14 mos (obviously, something amiss w/ the electrical system, but no one can figure it out). I've also had rotor issues (others mentioned). Had to have the front and rear replaced. When disengaging from reverse to put it in drive, I find it has problems moving beyond neutral until I do it two or three more times.

Review

Overall a great SUV! This is my second Grand Cherokee, and I have had very few major repairs. I did have to have the tranny overhauled, but that was close to 100,000 miles. The 4x4 is great (I think my 95 was a little better), but for our tough winters it is a must!

Nice Jeep

Review

I work on jeeps for a living, so I knew what to expect when I bought mine. Mine has the 4.0L engine. The only thing my Jeep needed when I bought it was an exhaust manifold ( they crack all the time on the 4.0)> Jeeps are high maintainance people! They need alot of T.L.C. You didn`t buy a Toyota. Keep the oil changed every 3k miles, rotate the tires every 6-7k miles (very important on a jeep) and dont beat the vehicle up on the road. Take care of your jeep and more than likely it will take care of you.
