2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I was really excited about owning my first jeep and had great plans for it until the death wobble hit. All my suspension and steering components all wore out at about the same time and I had to put almost $1,000 into it just for parts and did the labor myself. Then as soon as I got it driving good again, the oil pan gasket started leaking. While the engine itself will run forever, be sure to take time to inspect all of the other components and have a mechanic check it over too.


Best Features

Very comfortable to drive.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Laredo 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the vehicle in 2004 just off of a lease program with 69,000 miles. I now have 177,000 miles and its running great. The transmission did give out at 148k but thats about normal. I bought it because of the legendary straight six. IMO and my only complaint with the vehicle is there should have been a recall on the window motors. All four window motors have been replaced over the years. All four with the same exact problem, the cable snapped overnight while the window was up. I was told the replacement motors all had a heavier cable. Comfort: about a year ago I thought i was ready for that cool looking Volvo XC90 ! Then I test drove one, couldn't wait to get out of it.


Best Features

The Jeep drives/handles excellent ! The sound system is the best I've heard yet factory. I've decided to keep it for many many more years as a second vehicle. Rear wheel drive Visibility Looks Reliability


Worst Features

If you have one of these you know the straight six although extremely reliable its mpg is 18/20. When the time comes to replace the engine I hear the straight six stroker gets 21/24 mpg the Stroker puts out 265 horsepower and 290 lb-ft. of torque. Mopar says it will be able to fit under the hood of any Jeep which previously held the factory 4.0-liter inline-six, including first- and second-generation Grand Cherokees, Cherokees and Wranglers

Review

This truck will take anything you can throw at it. It has amazing seats and design in my 2001 JGC 60th anniversary. I have used this truck for everything from off-road to sunday drives. I have recently installed halos, a new sound system, LED fog lights, a cold-air intake, and a high-output chip to make this vehicle roar and not once has it not met my standards. People used to tell me "It's a Jeep thing" and I completely get it now. This truck is more than capable off-road and can still dust most trucks on the road.


Best Features

-4.7L V8 provides a quick pick-up -Best leather seats I've ever sat in -10-CD changer -Heated seats -Two-tone leather looks great -Capability on and off road


Worst Features

My only real suggestions that this vehicle needs is a better connection to seat heaters, a more durable blend door, and better gas milage. Otherwise, no complaints

Driving is a pleasure. Interior and exterior are in great condition. Color is Black. The only other change will be the the stereo. If anyone can get this year truck, buy it!

Review

I bought my JGC 4.7L Limited with 100k miles on it. Fell in love instantaneously with the plush leather seats and all of the luxury amenities. I put 60k miles on it and it nicked and dime'd me the entire time. The car left me stranded numerous times, and had to replace many sensors. I was so broke repairing the essentials, before I knew it the dashboard lights were burned out, the heated seats broke, 2 windows motors went and the climate system was shot. Not to mention the car had a mind of its own, the memory seats would adjust to whatever it wanted, the car alarm would go off constantly, but the final straw was when the catalytic converter code came up. Miss her though.


Best Features

The leather seats were high quality, sound system was great, but many of the other "luxury options" were faulty.
