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

Review

The Jeep Grand Cherokee was a decent SUV for the first five years - but for the last three years it's just been bleeding money. In the past 24 months, I've spend over $7,000 keeping this thing running. New rear axle, right rear bearing, left rear bearing, power steering pump, fuel pump, battery, fuel filter, power window motors (2), two speakers, hood shocks, all new shocks, tires multiple times, 3 new oxygen sensors for the engine, two new engine (spark plug) coils, new fuel regulator, starter. The worst thing is the alignment. Because Jeep does not allow the camber to be adjusted, I have a slight pull to the left, and need to have the tires rotated at 3k miles and replaced often.

Best Features

For the first five years, it had nice power from the V8 Engine and the fold flat rear seats are nice, allowing a lot of cargo space.

Worst Features

Seats should be taller, the seat hits me in the middle of the back. Gas mileage for a 4 passenger SUV is terrible, about 16 mpg. Reliability is TERRIBLE.....if you own a Jeep, plan to get rid of it at around the 5 year mark....from there, it will just spend you to death.
