Bad Rear Differential
By eric on
Vehicle
1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis 4dr SUV 4WD
Review
I bought this drift-wood colored V8 Orvis at 55000mi, and have put 113000 more on it. Brakes are a bit weak. Careful driving helps a lot. I occasionally haul light utility trailer-loads and have replaced rear differential at 75 and 160 miles. A/C controller went at 150 miles. Lift gate sprung leaks, causing light/alarm problems. E-Brake very weak. Can drive easily with it engaged. Engine still strong. Tranny original. Body very good. Some interior screws work loose. One and 1/2 speakers blown. Rear wiper frozen forever. Good truck to 140,000. Fuel mileage 13 US city, 19 at 75 mph, measured. Paint/exterior holding up really well. exhaust and entire front- end original (one link replaced at 94)
Favorite Features
Very nice looking truck. Interior easy to reconfigure for utility loads, long wood/saws/tools. Interior colors are attractive/unique. comfortable front seats, back seats are decent but not the best leg room (though it is a mid- size SUV). Original shocks just finally weakening. Quite easy to park.
Suggested Improvements
The post '99 diff. should be retro- fitted. A better functioning tranny. Stronger console. Higher build quality eg. lift-gate/rear wiper/memory computer/E-brake/front brakes/rear differential/shifter/overdrive system and the button placement for it.
