1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV


Review

I bought this car in March of 2013 with 220,000 miles on it. This Jeep had alot of issues when I purchased it. The biggest problem was the stalling. After replacing the PCM computer this Jeep has served me a fantastic 33,000 miles. I am currently at 253,000 miles with this Jeep. I drive this 45 miles a day to Oceanside and it runs like a top. Of course with high milage vehicles comes issues every couple of months but that is what owning a Jeep is about. It is a learning experience. Because of these issues I grew, and that's why I love this Jeep. When it's maintained and everything is working its a dream. when something goes out its just another thing to learn yea its stressful but im thankful. cheap, reliable, amazing first car.

Review

I bought this Jeep for my wife before my last tour in Iraq. When I came home there were very few issues, and after some repairs we took it on a trek across country and back. just over 5000 miles. Last night while driving though the mountains, we got hit with a cross wind that shoved me left and ripped the sunroof right out of the vehicle. It was raining and the sunroof was closed tightly. None of the interior windows were open.


Best Features

Love the look and after replacing the stereo and 2 front speakers love the sound quality.


Worst Features

Obviously if the sunroof thing is a factory defect then that could be improved, also the mileage should be a bit better, but it is not as bad as some.

Review

We hit lots and lots of problems
nearibg 100k. Had to replace
alternator, radiator, faulty wiring,
brakes and then the big
one...transmission. Mechanic said he
would go out of business if it wasn't
for Chrysler transmissions. Think
again if you're looking for a used SUV.


Best Features

4WD, appearance, comfortable.


Worst Features

Find a new place for the spare. It takes up too much cargo space. (This is now under the car in newer models).

Review

I was a little leary of buying a used
car, but I have had nothing but great
experiences with my Jeep Cherokee. I
love the way it handles on the road,
the space my family has when traveling,
and the extras it has. The only downs
I have experienced are not great gas
mileage, and it is a little too boxy
for me (making it hard to dry when hand-
washing it). Other than that, I love
this vehicle!


Best Features

Infinity sound system, air bags, leather interior, digital readout (miles to empty, miles traveled,etc) and the way it handles on the road.


Worst Features

Less boxy style, better brake system, better gas milage

Review

I bought this gorgeous vehicle at one
year old with only 15k miles. It was
great at first, but since then I've
spent over $2,500 in major repairs
including AC compressor, AC
accumulator, heater core, and rear
engine seal (100,000 miles). Now the
catalytic converter is going to cost
$750 to replace! This SUV gets lots of
miles put on it, but they are gentle
miles. I've been disappointed by the
repair costs.


Best Features

Infinity sound system, fully adjustable heated leather seats, and cargo area.


Worst Features

Make it more reliable! Jeep is supposed to mean tough. Who ever heard of replacing the rear seal of a gently used well-maintained vehicle at 100,000 miles?
