Drives Like a Dream
By rameses000 on
2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Have owned this model Jeep since 2005 and have had the usual maintenance problems others have talked about. The rotor trouble is easily fixed by installing a reputable brand brake rotor - not one made by Chrysler. Have the same front rotors for the past 7 years with no problem. Accelerates like a sports car and fuel consump is 18/24. Otherwise usual maintenance only. In 2007 the front end of my Jeep was hit and completely run over by a Semi while it was parked at a store. $3300 in body damage only. Mechanic said nothing to worry about, It's a Jeep. Thing runs like it just drove off the showroom floor. For me, it's a keeper.
Incredible handling, smooth quiet ride, great acceleration and off road ability like no other.
Chrysler should have beefed up the power window mechanism by using metal parts instead of plastic.
