2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have only had one major problem with my Jeep when I needed a new transmission at about 110,000 miles. Other than that it drives great and is very reliable. Awesome in the snow! It will drive through anything! Comfortable to drive and handles well. The gas mileage can be pretty brutal especially if you try to go above 70.
Off-roading ability, lots of space for moving back and forth to school
The wiring job isn't great. Some of the features (moonroof, trunk 6-CD changer)are very temperamental and will work one day and not the next.
