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


Review

This Jeep was a dream until I found out that this jeep lunges for no apparent reason, it jerks, and i have taken it in and no one can really tell me a specific reason why it does this, I would not reccomend this jeep, not unless the manufacturer takes a look at what is causing this lunge


Favorite Features

I like the inside space, very comfortable, i like the speakers, and the space


Suggested Improvements

fix the lunge, better gas mileage, shift better/smoother

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


Review

I did love my Jeep until I had transmission problems at 62000 miles. Brought it for repair and they put in a new software but 3 weeks later while on a road trip the tranny went out. It is at a dealership 9 hrs away now getting a new transmission at 65000 miles, luckily I have an extended warranty but this does not cover my expenses of getting the car back and renting a car to get home. Also the seat heaters went out 2 times once under warranty which I fixed and then out of warranty which I chose not to fix for $500. Will never own a Jeep again.


Suggested Improvements

Needs a better transmission that lasts more than 65000 miles.

This is an all around great car. It has a V8 and drives great. The leather seats are comfortable, the moon roof is great and everything is awesome. I have had no problems. The limited looks great. I love the body style.

Review

The drivers seat is uncomfortable.Jeep could take a lesson in seat design from Honda. There is a "clunk" in the rear suspension. I've had it checked out several times. It's blamed on a broken shock, but the shocks are fine. The sound stops when there is about 100lbs placed over the rear end in the cargo area. Also if a light duty shock is used.


Favorite Features

The interior is very attractive.

Review

Piece of crap. A/C went at 26K, the regional Chrysler/Jeep rep offered to pay half as a good will gesture. At 26K? Brakes went at 25K, same thing. Radio goes out at any given time. Had to replace seat warmer @ $400 at 45K. Mirrors will occasionaly reset themselves at weird angles when parked. I get in car - side mirrors are aimed at the ground. Rear end piece just went at 65K...yup, a real well built machine - NOT!!! I will NEVER buy a Jeep again.


Favorite Features

That the note is almost paid off. Oh yeah, and it's resale or trade in value? HAHAHAHA


Suggested Improvements

This is the 60th anniversary edition with the custom wheels, 10 CD changer, etc. And the worse part is the Chrysler rep and his sanctimonious attitude. That $400 in savings on that repair will cost you WAY more than that in ill will and bad mouthing from me.

Review

Very quick & powerful V-8 engine. Handles well in all conditions. Very comfortable leather seats. Had to get one software update to correct the transmission slamming into / out of gear at low speeds. The update fixed it. The driver's side heated seat is broken but still under warranty. The rear cup holder sucks and gets stuck all the time.


Favorite Features

V-8 engine. Excellent 4WD. Looks.


Suggested Improvements

More reliable transmission & heated seats, better cup holders.

Review

I have owned it for 25,000 and have NOT have any problems. The body is tight, and the suspesion allows it to drive over anything. I took if offroad on Pismo Beach a few times. Other 4x4s were either getting stuck or drivers had to get out and lower the tire pressure to move. Not the Jeep.


Favorite Features

The SelecTrak 4x4 makes this one of the best off-road vehicles in the world. The styling inside and out is classy and timeless.


Suggested Improvements

I wish gas mileage were better. The engine sound intrudes somewhat, but it has that distinctive I-6 sound that I've learned to love.
