Always something broken on this jeep
By kg89 on
2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
All I did was pay to repair this thing. Faulty radiator, brake calipers, two engine fans, ignition coil, camshaft sensor, wiring harness, engine computer, engine oil cap broke off and oil had to be put in through the dipstick shaft, power window motors, bad adhesive on insulation on all the doors led to many wet seats after rainy nights. And my personal favorite, the drivers seat became a rocking chair after becoming completely detached from the track. This car was always broken. Not to mention the terrible gas mileage, which I would have been fine with if it were not for the constant cost of repairs. It ended up costing me more money to repair it than it did to buy it in the first place.
4wd was a blast, and got me through some brutal snowstorms. The seats folded down in the back made for a very cozy space for two with a blanket. Very comfy, just park it and open the liftgate and you got a spot for you and some buddies to sit and drink beers at a tailgate.
Very unreliable, was broken in every possible way. Very poor build quality. door panels were very cheap and came detached from the doors, same goes for insulation. This Jeep eventually started choking and sputtering and shutting off at red lights and stop signs before she died. I sold her for junk and got a honda crv, so far a way smoother ride and way better fuel economy.
