1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I'm one of the few that use this car offroad fairly regularly for surveying. Bought the car with just 11k miles on it, and have only managed to put another 40k on in 4 years. Why? Because I can't keep it running. Various suspension, electrical, and brake problems keep popping up. Got the 5.9 because I needed to pull a trailer, and fuel economy is predictably bad at around 12MPG. There is just no reason why a 6 year old car with just 51k miles should rack up nearly $7,000 in repairs.

Favorite Features

Comfortable car, with a good stereo (which no longer works) Towing ability

Suggested Improvements

This is far and away the least reliable car I've ever owned, and I've owned a Fiat. Based on my son's experiences with his 2001 Grand Cher. it doesn't look like much has changed.
