Vehicle
2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
The beauty of this vehicle is it is relatively small for an SUV with the power of a V8 and 6300lb towing capacity. You won't find another vehicle that can pull as well that drives like a car when you aren't pulling. Things I don't like: front brake rotors will warp under normal use every 10-15K miles and will need resurfacing to prevent shimmy. Jeep's warranty on this is 6K, I think. Also think front seats could be a bit firmer. Poor fuel economy when towing about 5500 lbs---about 9 mpg. Rear end makes a whirring noise when moving very slowly (5 mph or less), but is normal. Other than brakes, no real problems.
Favorite Features
Towing capability is outstanding for relatively small SUV. V8 power is great.
Suggested Improvements
Brake longevity without warping. Better seats--mainly front, but rear, too. Improved gas mileage. Side-impact airbags in front and rear.
