2nd Jeep Grand Cherokee
By Coloradojeep on 03/12/07 13:03 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd Jeep - I feel they're very reliable, but it is a DOG in the mountains, no oomph up there at all - all the other SUV's pass me by. Wish it just had a little more "kick" to it! Other than that, it's been reliable - I bought it at 21K and I'm at 84K right now. Very dependable still.

I LOVE MY JEEP!

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Jeep was the only thing on the dealer's lot that appealed to me. I went in looking to purchase a new car and feel in love with the used jeep! It has never left me any where and runs great plus I love the way it looks. The inside is a little plain and simple but over all it's an awesome car. I feel safe in it. The only down fall is the gas mileage but that is the price you pay driving as SUV! All-in-all I am a very satisfied Jeep owner and don't see myself ever purchasing anything other that a jeep.

Has been a great SUV--68,000 miles
By jeep owner on 02/17/07 05:44 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have owned this car since new--now has 68000 miles on it. This has been a great vehicle for snowy northern winters--the best traction of any vehicle I have ever owned on ice and snow. Gas mileage is about what you'd expect with a V8 engine. Great pick up, effortless highway cruising, very maneuverable in town, pulls my utility trailer with garden tractor with no problem. Lots of features and accessories--sunroof, overhead console, etc. Have had no problems with this car except for a single warranty replacement of front brake rotors at 35000 miles. No other problems at all. Replaced the tires at 60,000 miles and they still had tread left! Won't hesitate to buy another Grand Cherokee.

Love Hate Relationship
By fort worth flyer on 12/24/06 06:58 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The looks of this vehicle make you fall in love but the repair bills and time in the shop make you hate it. We bought our 2002 Limited in 2004 with 25,000 miles. Thank goodness for extended warranties. During the 2 years of ownership the vehicle was in the shop 8 times for something major. Climate control, engine cooling fan, window regulator(s), CD changer, hood struts, seat heater(s), you name it... it broke. The rear end was clunking and front end was making weird noises when we traded it AND THIS VEHICLE WAS WELL MAINTAINED! If you're going to buy it, get a good warranty or have several $1000's in an account to pay for the repairs.

Review

When it is running, it is fun to drive. Brake repairs due to leaks on two occasions. Transmission repair. Differential repair three times. Window motor failed. Don't do it to yourself.

2002 JGC
By JD on 10/27/06 15:48 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My 2002 Grand Cherokee was a great buy. I've only had a handful of minor issues with it...nothing that one wouldn't expect from driving 25-40 miles per day in city traffic. But with an average of 18-23mpg or so, it's not unreasonable at all. It's a bit squirrelly on the freeway, but it has amazing control in town. Driving in Houston, Austin and Dallas has been a breeze, even when hauling 5 folks or a full load of "stuff". I'll be drivin' the wheels off mine. Unless of course I get a newer one. (Thatís why I'm back to Edmunds). Someone looking for a fair sized SUV with good city driving characteristics won't be disappointed.

Love my Jeep

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV handles like a car but has the heft that most people look for when they desire an SUV. It has been fun and reliable to own this Jeep Grand Cherokee for the last 2 years. The only bummer...the silver letters on the outside peel on most of these models.

Still Love it
By overtime on 07/07/06 09:18 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the only vehicle I have ever purchased that I like as well today as the day I took it home. It is a great all around vehicle for towing, going off-road, taking on vacation, etc. It has done everything I have ever asked it to do and I have never had to do anything other than regular maintenance. With the 4.7 V-8 I average 18+MPG on mixed driving and have gotten 22+MPG on the highway. However towing 2500lbs drops it down into the 13MPG range. I will probably purchase another one however, the Commander is also in my line of sight.

Nice Looks, Poor reliability
By C Paltz on 06/30/06 06:20 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love the look and comfort of my 2002 Laredo but... I bought this Jeep used at 36,000 miles last September. Here it June with almost 57,000 miles and my air conditioning is broken for the 2nd time...not too nice in Florida in the summer. I have a power steering leak and the leather on my drivers seat is starting to crack and separate at the seams. Also, on the overhead console, the coolant low warning keeps beeping at the car's start up but the coolant level and quality is fine. I would really love another one that works great but I think I'll be trading mine in for another brand as soon as I get the air conditioner fixed this month.
