1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


I have been almost anal with the up- keep of this car. I have followed the manual and performed every service recommended to the letter, but it has been nothing but problems in return. I know 4 other people, besides myself that have owned upper end Grand Cherokees or Loredos and not one of us would ever buy another one. Every time I have taken it to a shop and talked about the problems I have experienced, the mechanics confirm my frustrations by agreeing that this is not a reliable car.

Best Features

It handles well, has lots of power, is a great looking car, and is fun to drive. I particularly like the V8 engine.

Worst Features

Use better quality materials, improve the gas mileage, improve the electical systems, improve the transmission, and improve the materials used for the air conditioning unit. Basically, make it reliable.
