1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I purchased my Jeep last January.
After owning the Jeep for 11 months I
am in the process of looking for
another Ford. Wheel bearings are gone,
howling from either a idler pulley or
alternator ($250 for a rebuilt),
transmission slipping terribly when it
get below 40 degrees F, fogging
headlight, leaking tailgate at both the
window and gate seal, squeaks and
rattles. I have 91K on it now and
purchased it with 71K. I have no faith
in this vehicle. If you are considering
one, get rid of it before 100K. Friend
that works for Chrysler said allmost
all Jeep Grands need a tranny rebuild
then. Wish I had known, my first and
last Damlier Chrysler vehicle.


Best Features

Comfy power seats, very good Infinity sound system, great looking vehicle


Worst Features

Handles like a full size, for pete's sake can't Chrysler group make a transmission yet, better integrity, fix the drifting cruise control, better gas mileage (16 on highway, yuk)

Review

Great value SUV. Brought it used in
03,a local lady had owned it. Perfect
condition and paid 2/5 of original
cost, with 60k mileage. A bit boxy,
stiff ride, some drive train noise
comes through in the 1999 edition.
Great in the Wyoming winters,
outdoors, off-road. Nice highway use,
but still an SUV in terms of a highway
feel. We put Waag grill/tail light
guards on it and it looks tough.
Great package for the money!


Best Features

Controls and trim inside.


Worst Features

Provide an option for less stiffer ride and reduce the drive train noise, which I believe they did for the 2000+ versions.

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..


Best 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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

Power in lo 4x4


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

Too many to list in 300 characters or less...
