I bought my Black on Black Leather Limited Grand Cherokee from a co- worker who bought it new. It has 108,000 miles on its 4.7 Liter V8. The co-workers husband is a Chrysler Certified Mechanic, so I really found a Diamond in the rough since the 4.7's sometimes have major problems due to lack of oil changes. I love the Jeep. People always complain about the gas mileage, well people its a V8 Suv. Its NOT a Honda or Toyota or Hyundai. And none of those cars have what a Jeep has anyway. I would definitely recommend getting one to anyone who asks, just be warned that its not a hybrid.
I love the dual climate, heated leather seats, and the 6-Disc CD. I went from a Jaguar to this Jeep and I truthfully love this more than the Jag.
The only major issue I have with the Jeep is that a lot of things wear out. Fast. Like the leather. But just clean it and it's fine.
Plan on heavy expenses for maintenance
(nothing was covered under the gold
extended jeep warranty). before 45k
miles, I replaced the AC system,
brakes, battery (twice), various
electrical components, power window
modules, memory seat module, stereo
speakers, stereo controls on steering
wheel, etc. Everytime I started the
vehicle, the seat would propel me into
the dash - jeep couldn't find the
problem, not to mention the calls for
a tow truck because it wouldn't start -
so I got the opportunity to spend
lots of time and money in the shop.
Lots of road noise with this vehicle.
It may look good from the outside, but
it's not worth the headaches.
exterior looks, reasonable gas mileage
on the 6 cyl, nice looking interior.
negligible back seat room, VERY POOR
reliability in electronics, AC, and
