Fun offroading and others...

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee TSi 4dr SUV 4WD
Where do I start, I traded my 92 Camaro
Z28 for the 97 Jeep TSi model and noted
its capabilty for winter driving right
off. It is a good snow/off road
vehicle. I bought the vehicle at 36000
miles and to date have racked up 105000
miles. The only major problem that I
had was Transmission slipping when the
unit got hot. Had put the car into the
shop twice with "no trouble found" (had
transmission serviced second time for
$400). Started slipping 6 months later
and this time I burned the transmission
out (on purpose). Had the transmission
replaced at a cost of $2800 (1 new
Jasper transmission and labor). Now it
runs smooth as silk. I love it.
Able to drive the vehicle off road, on
the beaches, in the snow and on the
road. It is definately an off road
vehicle. Great AC (plus the rear pass.
do have AC vents, they are under the
driver and pass seats).
Rear seating is quite limited and
cramped, would have liked to have had
more room for my grown kids. When they
were little, the room was fine. I
certainly hope they worked on that.
