It never let me down since 12/00.
Roominess: I easily transported 5 large
dogs & 1 passenger.
Easy handling: Temporarily I could only
drive with one hand, it was manageable.
Relative to height/width handles well
in curves; turns tightly, in small
Breaks well – very responsive and tight.
Gas mileage (use the vehicle’s
weight!): 18.6/city. Highway – av. 72
mph - 24 mpg w/o AC, 22.6 mpg/w AC
The cruise control leaves a lot to be
desired uphill and downhill, where I
saw a gain/loss of 5 mph.
Both door locking devices went
inoperable within 3 years. (1 under
warranty, 1 a week after warranty ran
out ($160 ea.)
I bought this new and have put 108,000
miles on it with no trouble at all. I
average 21-22 mpg on the highway and
19-20 around town. You can't find
many SUV's that will give this kind of
performance. The only thing I have
done is change the oil and put gas in
the tank. I am extremely pleased with
this purchase. I also tow a 2,000lb
boat about 15 weekends per year, the
in-line 6 has no problems. This is my
second Grand Cherokee (also owned
1995) and no problems. My boss and
stock broker have same both with in-
line 6 and they love them, no problems.
Gas mileage for an SUV, smooth ride
for SUV, and quality components.
It's a JEEP!
I have over 100,000 miles on my
GCherokee. Biggest maintenance was
replacement of the water pump. No oil
buring, runs great on highway. Secret
of longevity is probably the basic in-
line six cylinder engine. It's bullet
Lots of room. Great highway car. I
think it gets a bad rap for being high
maintenance. I treat it OK, and it
treats me OK.
Seats are getting a little soft. I
thought they would be a little more
long lasting. Replacement would be
I went in blind to buying an suv,but
after a few different test tries, I
decided on a 2000 JGC ltd.v8 w/Quadra-
Drive. More for the money,handles just
as good as the expensive models.It
takes on the deep snow to hard rains as
if it were a sunny day.Drives smooth
even on the toughest dirt road. The
style looks good.Very comfy
inside.Brakes good,but the rotors had
to be changed already.All in all I
still will buy another jeep.
heated seats,handling and how it looks
brakes need to be improved,and how
about some vents for the
backseats.Needs some kind of trim on
the window to stop the washer fluid
spray from coming back in on you.
