2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We have owned the truck since it was brand new, and now it has 177,000 miles on it. Recently, the EGR valve had to be replaced, as did the front C/V joint, radiator, and water pump. The transmission is noisy, and gas mileage is horrible. It was a good car when it was new, but has started to show its age.


Best Features

Great sound system, good power, clean but rugged looks.


Worst Features

More comfortable seats, navigation system needs work, rear DVD headphones need to be more durable, transmission is noisy, gas mileage is horrible, seats are rather uncomfortable.

Review

I honestly made a huge mistake buying a Chrysler product. I'm having problem after problem. I'm going back to Toyota or Volvo. Chrysler should shut there doors for there sake. Trash all the way!!

Review

We have owned this Jeep since it was brand new. The performance is great on the V8, as is the features we have (leather, navigation, DVD, satellite radio) but we take great care of our vehicles, and unfortunately this generation of Grand Cherokee has held up the worst of all of the ones we've owned (we've owned three out of the four generations of Grand Cherokee). The center console lid is worn, the rear DVD headphones broke, etc. They claim it is "quieter than a Jaguar S-Type 3.0", but the transmission is quite noisy. I don't recommend this generation of Grand Cherokee.


Best Features

Navigation (when it worked), Satellite radio, Boston Acoustics stereo (sounds great!), rear DVD, leather seats


Worst Features

Gas mileage (of course), a better navigation system, better interior quality, softer seats, better-quality headphones for the rear DVD system, less interior noise

Review

My uncle bought it new in 05 then I bought it from him and its a 60,000 miles and going strong it rides amazing but the v6 is sluggish (really need to mash the pedal to pass on the hwy) gas milage isnt great but i'm not complaining. it has been rattled hard (uncle lived on a dirt, rutted horrible road lol) and has only had a few problems.


Best Features

heated seats, leather, auto lights, computer


Worst Features

cd player skips on little bumps, all 4wd systems should have a low not just qt2 and qd2, more efficant and powerful v6
