2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Comfortable, AWD system, easy to work on (not that i've needed to yet). Will be fun to modify down the road...
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.
