Reliable 4WD Un Reliable Brakes
By BeachJeep on
2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Great 4WD ability in the snow/ice
and when I surf fish the beaches of
North Carolina.I have helped several of
the "so called SUV's" get un stuck.
Most of the small street SUV's just
cant handle the harsher off road
conditions. The main flaw of the
vehicle is its brakes. I had to turn or
replace the front rotors 4 times in
40,000 miles only onced covered under
warranty at the 11,000 mile mark.I
suggest this vehicle for any one that
needs a good 4 wheel drive.I would rate
my vehicle as dependable. Only one
mechanical failure beside the common
brake problem which was quickly taken
care of under warranty. (Trans sensor)
Four wheel drive handling and control.
Better front brakes & better
warranty coverage of them.
With so many brake complaints for the
same problem you would think a major
auto manufacturer would design a fix
and recall affected vehicles.
