1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Rotors and brakes were changed 3 times in the first 20K and thereafter every 30K. Extremely rough ride. Instrument cluster and bezel poorly designed and poor fit. Cat/convertor rattle at idle common to this model at 100K milage. Poorly designed door; weatherstripping results in severe wind noise. Sharp low speed turn results in extremely loud "thunk" from wheels. All the above defects found to be common with several other owners


Favorite Features

High road visibility. Great towing ability


Suggested Improvements

Better ride. Better brakes.

Review

This Jeep has been nothing but a pain. It has left my wife stranded more than once and has been a mechanics dream due to the money I have shelled out. I'll never buy a Jeep or Chrysler product again.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Until the past year I was very pleased with the 5.9. However, in the past year (since about 55,000 miles) I have changed the front rotors twice due to warping, (once was covered by a Jeep recall)and replaced both the front and rear differentials. In addition, I have a transmission leak which hopefully is only the pan gasket. All this despite the fact that I have followed schedule A maintenance recommendations. I will never buy another Chrysler product again

Great SUV, no trail unaccessable, hauls and drives great. Never had a problem mechanically or comfort wise. Great car overall.

If live near mts or hills get the V8. For normal driving I-6 is great.

Review

The Jeep has been a wonderful all purpose vehicle. I have had no problems other than typical for an auto, regular maintenance. The interior layout is good, although the rear tire does take up some cargo space. The stereo is great although I have the infinity system upgrade. The GC rides and drives great, the 4x4 is flawless, i must admit it can be alittle thirsty at the pump and i have the 6 cylinder. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an all purpose suv.


Favorite Features

Exterior Looks, Smooth Ride, Great Handling, Wonderful Stereo System


Suggested Improvements

Something can be done to improve gas mileage, getting 16-20mpg
