Premature Failures
By C. Bond on


1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


33000 miles- The fuel pump failed. 35000 miles- The power steering pump failed. 46000 miles the sway bar disconnected. 52000 miles the IPS sensor failed. 70000 miles the tramsmision pump and torque converter failed. The remote control memory, door locks, power mirrors and seat controls have failed roughly 4 times. What really got me is when the repair facility was familiar with the failure mode each time. You mean it's normal to loose a fuel pump at 33,000 miles? Oh, and the "certified" service department local to me is a joke. 3 transmission repairs, and 2 of them returned a vehicle with loose transfer case bolts?

Best Features

$ 32,000.00 Leather interior still works The front windshield keeps wind out of the drivers eyes very well. The "Jeep" emblem is about the only thing that hasn't broken. Good Job!

Worst Features

Stress relieve brake rotors. Engineer, test, and implement reliable vehicle componants, .... the last 50 years of testing data by the the other Big Three companies would be a good start for a guide. Try NAPA.... Change your name and start over. Add a bigger suggested improvements box.
