Review of the 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Heat, defrost, ac won't work

Vehicle: 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

This is a driving hazard, should be a recall, as I am having to take our vehicle to the dealer to get fixed, from what I hear is expensive. Have heard this model Jeep, from reviews seems to have a blender prob. Not good, as I have a child, no defrost, heat, ac. Ugh!

Not reliable

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

Most disappointing was the reliability. Five or six times in the last year the vehicle has not cranked and the shop was not able to locate the problem. Last week the passenger window stuck in the down position and cost $500 to repair. For a vehicle less than four years is this is not acceptable. I will be looking at a different make in the future.

Vehicle: 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

this is my third jeep and i have loved everything about them except the windshield. it is so hard to keep it from staying greasy which is a hazard in rainy weather. the other thing (that passengers complain about) is the rocking from side to side it does on rough pavement.

Full 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

What's New for 2003

For 2003, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has received refinements that improve its ride and handling. The suspension features reduced pressure shocks and the brake master cylinder output has been increased to improve brake pedal feel. There are also new brake calipers and a revised steering gear torsion bar. Available trims have been narrowed from five to three; the Sport and Special Edition trims have been discontinued. Standard on 2003 Laredo models is a new high-back cloth seat. Finally, in all Jeep Grand Cherokee interiors, a new cubby bin for holding sunglasses or cellular phones has been added to the instrument panel, replacing the ashtray.
