2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased my Jeep used with 45,000 Arizona desert-mtn-backroad miles. Have driven it over Calif freeways, AZ hills and Nevada back road exploring. Only had regular maintenance and tune-ups. Replaced windshield with sand-storm damage; added dealer-installed tow system. Only recently replaced shocks and suspension; brake rotors, etc. I have thoroughly enjoyed its reliability and dependability in difficult situations whether highway or sandwashes, creek beds or steep cliff conditions. Recent engine work but have been greatly satified with this Jeep- also my previous 1990 Jeep Cherokee 4WD - in the past fourteen years.
Dependable shifts into 4WD and out, provided good handling at high speeds over winding back-country drives. I like having the compass read-out as it saves me making some wrong "which way to go?" choices.
Rear-view mirrors inside and out have blind spots even after adjusting - a problem with high-speed freeway driving situations and heavy traffic. Protective plastic over headlights clouded, sand-blasted and it affects night drive visibility.
