I leased my 2000 JGC brand-new, then
purchased at the end of my lease. I
had one problem that took a year and 6
visits to the dealership to fix -
presented as a problem with the coolant
resevoir and ultimately turned out to
be a cracked head gaskets. No problems
whatsoever since this was fixed. I
drive 90 miles per day, mostly highway,
and get about 21mpg. I have thought
about trading for something with better
efficiency or newer and more reliable,
but can't find anything I like as much.
Only time I have trouble is when the
roads are icy (rear wheel drive), but
that's my problem for not going with
the 4x4. I love my Jeep and plan to
buy another in future.
sound system - even the base system
sounds pretty good; easy to drive -
feels smaller than it is; cargo capacity
Just based on the brake problems alone,
it is time to say goodbye to my Jeep.
When htey were fixed the first time,
most of it was covered under the
warrantty at 30,000. At 60,000, the
price went way up and htere was no
gaurantee I wouldn't have to replace
the brakes again in less then 30,000
miles AGAIN! The AC has leaked twice
and the radiator is starting to leak as
well. The main compter board went at
9,000 miles on vacation. It took a lot
to have Jeep pay for the car rental and
delivering the Jeep from Virgina to CT.
I love the style
Reliability would be a good start. Fix
the brake problem.
This was my first and last mopar
product. The jeep definitely needs
more Benz influence to improve the
product. Good thing that my local
servicing dealer takes very good care
of me. The transfer case leaked, the
electric fan was replaced, the engine
stalls and restarts when it feels like
it. The brake rotors are too flimsy, I
have replaced 2 sets of rotors
already. 4 wheel drive works
intermittently, has let me down a few
times when needed. Not a real bad
vehicle, but I'm going back to A GM
product, which had much better quality.
Steering wheel controls, Selec-trac
lets you choose 2 or 4 wheel drive.
Decent Infinity stereo.
Improve the initial engineering and
quality, make electronics more
sophisticated for easier
Own 2000 Jeep GCH laredo 4x2, 4.7L ,
59000 ml. had only some small problems
When buying used Jeep make sure
you've got lot of money for fixing and
maintenance and lot of patience with
dealer service department,get model
with V8 engine (gas milage is almost
same like with V6 models - i have
average 16.8 mpg and drive mostly
around the town )- but on the end this
SUV is worth it.
brutal acceleration,strong V8,interior
just about everything.
Not on jeep but dealership service
departments , they dont have enough
knowlege and professionality
This vehicle was purchased brand new in
2000 and was bought back in 2001 via
lemon law. This suv was in the shop
2x/month every month. Problems with
starter, fuel pump, tranny making lound
noises, driving constantly to the
right, mirrors, seat memory, cd
changer, paint, and other problems
Audio controls, v8 power, fun to drive
factor, poor fuel economy
RELIABILITY, fuel economy (at least get
it in the high teens).
