2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this vehicle in 2006 with 40,000 miles on it. Still looked and drove like a new vehicle for the first year and my husband is a fanatic about regular maintenance and upkeep. On four different occasions, this Jeep just quit with no warning and I had to have it towed to a garage. Four garages and six well-established mechanics and they still never found the problem. They all say it's something electrical (perhaps a short) that they cannot find--even with diagnostic tools. Now, the cooling fan went out (another electric issue) and I can't drive it less than 20 mph without it overheating. BOTH front automatic window mechanism have also busted and had to be replaced at $300 each.
Turning radius. It turns on a dime.
Make a Jeep that is RELIABLE! I will NEVER EVER buy another Jeep and before this one. I would only buy a Jeep.
