OK. Where to begin? First the good stuff. The Jeep Grand Cherokee drives like a big friendly Teddy Bear, not like a pickup truck. It looks just as friendly, but I bought the car for perceived Jeep toughness, reliability and quality; however I found the Jeep lacking in those characteristics. Brakes shot at 25K, fuel pump fried at 27K, transmission done at 37K, water pump shot at 40K, persistent front end shimmy not fixed with tire balancing and universal joint replacement, etc. Wouldn't buy another one. The Honda-Nissan-Toyota SUV products are far superior.
Chrysler/Jeep needs to buy a Forerunner/Pathfinder/Pilot, tear them apart and figure out how to make a really good SUV.
