The all-new Grand Cherokee manages to retain its classic style and unparalleled off-road ability while delivering a level of luxury never before seen in a Jeep. If you're looking for a true 4x4 that's also refined and comfortable enough to drive in the suburbs, this is a must-see.

I am the original owner of my Jeep which now has 180,000 miles on it.
It is my third Jeep.
As an outside salesman I have driven over 1,000,000 miles in the past 30 years.
And this is the most durable car I have ever driven.
Besides still having the original brake pads with 40% of their life left, the only "repairs" so far have been a water pump, EGR valve and throttle position sensor.
The 3 items were done at 170,000 miles.
It took 60,000 miles just to break in the motor which uses not a drop of oil between regular oil changes every 5-6,000 miles. My car has every available option and NOT one thing has malfunctioned in 180,000 miles.
You just can't go wrong with this car.

The door handles are built into the whole inside panel, and they are brittle.
so we have a 05 limited with the HEMI 5.8L
2 door handle have broken, 3rd on way out. and looking at 700+ per door.
99% of cars have the handle seperate, why the heck they choice this design i dont know, but its poorly done.
there was talk they were going to recall this online, but to thi date they havent and refuse to help with this.
DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought my Jeep used only a year old. I had no problems with it till 2008. I had to replace the blend door in it ($763) of course the warranty wouldn't take care of it. Last winter i went to start it and one of the rods popped off. (WOW) and again the warranty didn't pay. Now this year right before summer, AGAIN, the blend door breaks again, another ($763). My transmission will slip once in awhile so I'm sure that will be next. I have never had a car with this many BIG problems in such a short time. My gosh its only 5 years old.
The Grand Cherokee is all new for 2005. Among the improvements are new four-wheel-drive systems, an independent front suspension, three excellent engine options and better ergonomics and build quality.
