Review of the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Still a charmer in terms of overall performance, looks and features, only a spotty reliability record prevents us from giving the JGC our whole-hearted endorsement.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful 4.7-liter V8, all-terrain capability, roomy comfort for four.

Only in a jeep

Vehicle: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Love this vehicle. 140,000 miles and the only fixes I have had to make were the drivers side window motor at 60,000 miles, water pump at around 133,000 miles and the front drive shaft at 137,000 miles. The drivers side seat heater went out, but who cares I don't drive naked and the heater still works, so I stay plenty warm. Bought it used with 32,000 miles on it and have made weekly trips from Ft Bragg, NC to Jacksonville, Florida. Ft. Benning, GA to Jacksonville and then the trip From NC to Ft Bliss, Texas pulling a trailer. In Texas now and make a trip every weekend to Tucson, AZ and still get 20+ MPG on the highway. Would definitely buy another, but not till this one wears out.

Overall my experience with this vehicle is a favorable one especially for this being a Chrysler product, (for I was a dissatisfied Dodge owner in the early 1990's). The vehicle has a sporty look, is roomy and has a comfortable ride.
