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


Review

The problem is with the quality. My Jeep has reached 99,300 miles and the latest problem is that the transmission is gone. Reverse gear stopped working. It will be a $3,000 repair charge. Other Issues : Automatic window motor cables broke - 5 times. Each repair cost $350-$400. The rear trunk door springs broke, cost to repair $250. The gear shift had problems due to which it would skip gear one. After numerous trips to the service shop finally they fixed the governor and some part for $800. A certain speed sensor would switch of the power at full speed in the highways. The sensor replacement cost over $1,000. The relay switch for the cooler broke - $250. And there are more things.


Best Features

Comfortable seats. Outside looks.


Worst Features

Work on the quality. If Jeep cannot do that, then it should increase the warranty period.

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


Review

It seems that there are allot of people out there that love to hate this Jeep, but I must say that it has thoroughly impressed me. I have taken it across the entire north western half of the country and back in the dead of winter and couldn't have felt more confident traveling in this vehicle. With the Quadra-Drive AWD system, 4.7 V8, and heated seats it's almost too easy! 20 MPG overall doesn't hurt, either. Handling/roadholding has also impressed me versus the Land Cruiser and older Range Rover SUV's that I have driven in the past. Reliability has been great thus far, with an easy to work on underhood layout.


Best Features

Comfortable, AWD system, easy to work on (not that i've needed to yet). Will be fun to modify down the road...


Worst Features

Not enough OEM underbody protection (i.e. skid plates, tunnel guards, etc.) for heavy off-roading, OEM wheels are too 'bling-bling' for my tastes, gears can be a bit noisy at times.

Review

We have had a few problems, but overall very good luck with this vehicle. 123,000 miles on the car. Break rotors warped and replaced 3 times. Chrysler finally paid for a really good set of slotted rotors (class action suit) and we have had no problems since. A few lights have burned out and a seat heater went out. Overall very pleased with the SUV. Love the smooth,tiny, but powerful V8 engine.


Best Features

Amazing in deep snow. Pretty difficult to get stuck. One of a very few Truly 4 wheel drive vehicles. Good looks even after 9 years of service. Most people mistake it for a much newer vehicle. Paint and finish held up well. When washed looks brand new. Sound system is awesome for factory eq.


Worst Features

Heater (controls and outlets).Small electrical issues (dash lights, seat heater).
