2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
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.
The powertrain is quick and makes the vehicle fun to drive. The heated seats are great when they work. The sound system makes great music. The styling of the vehicle is wonderful.
Jeep/Chrysler really need to work on improving the quality of the parts they use.
