1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee TSi 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I purchased my 5.2 V8 in late 2001 and have put 10K miles on it since. In that time I have grown to love this vehicle despite its quirks. The most common problem across the board is bad differentials which cause a loud growl or whining noise when bad. Other than that,my only problems have been a bad IAC motor($90)and a steering dampener and Catalyst,probably about $700 total. Not bad for a vehicle that has over 100K on it! Nice interiors,but cheap parts overshadow this,not good for a 35000+ vehicle.These are capable offroad vehicles that will reward you if you take care of them. You MUST keep on a strict maintenance schedule to avoid problems.

Best Features

Extremely capable offroad manners,Unquestionable rugged good looks,Resale value and Strong long lasting engine choices.

Worst Features

Chrysler needs to get its act together with reliability issues. Poor drivelines rattly interiors,and crappy components inside somewhat tarnish the rest of the goods.
