1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

We, my wife and I, bought the vehicle used. Had 32000 mi. the brakes were checked and described as ok.... after 11000 mi we encountered problems, and the dealer we purchased it from stated it needed a complete brake job. we stated that when we purchased it , the check system stated they were ok? the dealership would not stand behind there own check system, and we purchased the best warrenty program to a tune of $2000 and of course the warrenty program doesn't replace brakes. So I had to pay something like $450 for a brake job... We also had the rear end differential relaced due to noise..warrenty covered this problem..


Favorite Features

I love the quadra track transmission for our Michigan weather. Its easy for my wife to deal with the 4WD and gives a more sure feeling while on regular trips to town for my wife


Suggested Improvements

I am sure that chrysler Jeep, could do something to improve their rear end differentials so that they are not so noisy and are more reliable........

Review

After having 3 cherokee vehicles this is by far the worst. The power windows failed 3 times, there is a sensor for the transfer case that has failed several times giving you a hard shift change at about 20 miles(and I mean hard!!!). The cd changer skips on most of the disks at between tracks 6 and 8 and the driver rear mirror fails to remember its position frequently thus having to readjust almost daily. This would not be so bad if the dealer had taken care of reparing it but they did not time after time just gave excuses that the vehicle did not failed during their tests.


Favorite Features

Power in lo 4x4


Suggested Improvements

Transfer system, door desing air noise gets in after 50mph

Review

At under 60,000 miles I've already replaced both the front and rear differentials. Now I'm having transmission problems as outlined in bulletin 21-02-99 (harsh 1-2 shift at speeds of 10-15 mph). Jeep will not stand by their transmissions or assist me in any way. I will never buy a Jeep or Chrysler vehicle again and I strongly recommend you look elsewhere unless you like visiting repair shops.


Favorite Features

The tires have held up well and I expect to get 70,000 miles out of them, which is at least 12,000 more than my transmission. But that's probably because they were manufactured by Goodyear, not Chrysler.


Suggested Improvements

Review

Bought mine used with 52,000. Did brakes and serpentine belt. Had been offroad a fair amount per prior owner. Now have 64,000. Really have had no problems. Have heard the street talk about transmission failures but no problems with mine. Again, I think it matters quite a bit how they're used (towing/offroad/overheating)and maintained.


Favorite Features

Power, ride (yes, they sway a little, but this one has the up-country suspension).


Suggested Improvements

Not the most modern design now, but still good overall.

Review

We are very happy with our Jeep. It is the best vehicle we have ever owned outside of our Nissan Maxima. We love the Jeep equally for its quality and beauty.
