You are complaining about a vehicle that you bought used. When you buy a used vehicle you do not know what the previous owner did with the vehicle. Was it properly maintained , abused etc. This being your first vehicle I can understand your vast experience with Mopar engines , claiming them to be "useless and unreliable". Yet you also mentioned that the "engine has had no major problems" So Im trying to figure out how trouble free also means useless and unreliable ? If you were to remove the front driveshaft you would notice a fuel difference of about 1 mpg. and very little difference in performance. However you would be able to spin the tires easier. You are expecting a full time 4wd vehicle to perform "off the line" ? You should have bought a sports car if you want something fast. What you bought was a full time 4wd suv. The Grand Cherokee performs like a full time 4wd suv , and does it very well . Why would they let a 17 year old kid write a review when he is clueless and has no prior experience with any vehicle. The author and the review are both stupid !! I hope that no one will let this kids opinion influence their decision on purchasing a Jeep Grand Cherokee. My 97 ZJ has 220K miles and I swear by it as far as performance handling and reliability are concerned. With the 4.5 inch lift and 33inch BFG's It is one tuff looking ride that goes anywhere !!!Report it
