Loved and hated it

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I loved my Grand Cherokee and it was a perfect fit for me at 6'3. But it had plenty of issues... Poor fuel efficiency became a pain as gas kept rising higher and higher. The belt in 3 of the 4 power windows broke at various times, causing the windows to sink down into the door. Always seemed to happen during the winter when it was freezing. Just last week my engine failed and needed to be replaced. Had about 90,000 miles on my jeep. $6000 for a new engine, $3000 for a rebuilt engine. Decided to get a new car instead. I'm excited to be getting 28 mpg with my new car, but I'll miss the Grand Cherokee.
Comfortable leather seats, good headroom, plenty of power.
Never had any structural problems with it, just maintenance.
