Grand Cherokee not for me!
By wildman on

Vehicle

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Good inline 6cyl engine

Suggested Improvements

Needs more dependable transmission and drivetrain design.
