97 jeep grand cherokee ltd

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Too many mechanical issues. Water pump, rear axle, front drive shaft. brakes, rotors. The caliper froze and ruined the pads and rotor. Wind noise when the moon roof is open too objectionable. Even though the car has a V-8 it is underpowered. Kills your back on speed humps in parking lots.

Review

Best vehicle for New England climat. If you have boat trailer to tow it culd be good choice for this. I had almost no problems with this vehicle until now when some parts called for replacement(radiator and starter)

Buyer Beware

Review

Very "cool" vehicle as far as looks go. However, not "cool" when it comes to a functioning A/C. I first had a $400 compressor clutch repair then 6 months later a $750 evaporator coil repair. At 86,000 miles the transmission began to slip, there was a strange knocking noise from the rear end and the driver's side window motor began going out.

Quality SUV

Review

Had it new since '97, and I have few complaints. Motor does seem slightly tired, but that's understandable. Belts squeak a bit, and tranny slips a bit at times, but only momentarily. Bottom line: a well-conceived and designed SUV that lived up to its billing as the best SUV value out there at the time of purchase. I've driven it daily since purchase, and towed a small boat at least a couple hundred times without any major mechanical issues.
