Grand Cherokee not for me!

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV
Buyers beware of problems with
drivetrain. Transmission hesitates in
reverse, and suddenly
upshifts/downshifts from 2nd to 3rd
(always has since 45000 miles). Also,
bearings in differential are prone to
go bad - apparently this is a common
problem according to local dealer -
manufacturing tolerances were too
tight. I would not recommend this
vehicle to anyone. Chrysler really
should do something about their
problematic transmissions. I hate to
say this, since I enjoyed the Wrangler
that I previously owned, but it had a
manual tranny, instead of automatic.
I'm now lookind at Toyota 4runners,
based on their good history.
Good inline 6cyl engine
Needs more dependable transmission and
