I bought this car in Jan 06'. Traded in a 04' Mazda 6 for it. I had always wanted a Grand Cherokee and the dealership obviously gave me a great deal considering i was 'trading down.' In the 4+ years i've had it i've had very little problems. Just went on a 3000 mile trip from Iowa to Florida, Georgia, etc; and had zero issues. And thats with 175,000 miles on the odometer! I consistently get 21 mpg on the highway and 17-18 around town. Four-wheel drive is superb. Always goes in, and doesn't clunk of stick like some other older suv's do. Have taken it thru lots of off road places, crossed rivers, and gone thru 3 feet of snow without getting stuck. I would definitely recommend this car.
