Not bad for a Jeep
By DonWillis on 03/24/04 00:00 AM (PST)

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Other than the fact that it's a pure gas hog, I love this vehicle. I average about 13 or 14 mpg in the city and about 18 or 19 mpg on the highway. There's plenty of storage, which is nice, and the factory stereo system was so good that I kept it. That's a first for me. Usually, the first thing I do is yank out the factory stereo and pop in a high-powered sound machine. It's also very fun to drive. As far as comfort though, it's not the best car. It's a little cramped for me, plus the steering wheel is a little hard to turn. Other than that, it's fine.

Review

I wish I had read Consumer Reports Before I bought my 98 Jeep...it's a troublesome vehicle...in the shop more than out. I bought it new, and within the first year I had replaced the sunroof, differencial, and brakes. Since then it's cost an average of $800 per year in maintenance "above" fair wear and tear to keep in on the road. I (and the Jeep dealer) can't get it to hold a tune-up, and therefore won't run right (cylinder misfiring issues every year) and needs air conditioning maintanence (not servicing) annually. MY ADVICE - DON'T BUY ONE!

Review

deffinatly the best 4x4 there is, have done immensly stupid stunts and have gone without a stratch or dent or any damage. But buying it, i didnt know the axels where F'd up so after the dealer wanting $2700 to fix, and not releasing the vehicle to me over a huge mess, i finaly got it down to my REAL mechanic and he fixed it for a mear $500 loosly rounded off. Also with 98,000 miles on it, it needed a new water pump. But new growing fears of the Tranny are making me nervious ill end up like the other 3 guys i know who had the problem, but the review i read on A4's arent good, nor any other AWD car, so any advice would be useful.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited

Review

I bought this vehicle off lease. It has most of the available options. I've added a K&N Air Intake and FlowMaster exhaust. These additions, plus shifting the onboard computer into "police mode" probably get you close to 300 horsepower. This is a wonderful machine, capable of rugged off-roading and neck snapping on- road performance. Fit and finish were unsurpassed by any vehicle I've owned to date. Truly fun to drive!
