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


Review

Have been driving the 3.7 version for almost two years. Towed a fully loaded 5x8 enclosed trailer weighing 2000 lbs across the country with no problems in the mountains. Turn radius in parking lot is similar to small car. Power steering works great when at full stop. Spark plugs are difficult to replace, but not impossible. Climate control is quick to respond.


Best Features

Adjustable pedals


Worst Features

Change climate control illumination from a solid state control component to user replaceable lights.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Hemi is a big pile of junk. I've had nothing but problems with it since buying it in 2008. I had to replace the Starter at 60,000. Fuel Pump at 65,000. Transmission at 77,000. Power Steering Pump and Line at 78,000. 4 new tires at 55,000 miles, battery at 60,000. I feel like the jeep is in the shop more than I have driven it. Very unreliable but have so much stuck into it, feel sick to trade in. Currently my Service 4WD system light came on and I just got it back from getting a new Power Steering Pump. Dealer has been nothing but rude. We will never but another jeep again.

Review

I love my Jeep, but it won't stop breaking. The back is full of spare parts that always brake, lots of fuses and extra wire to make a fusible link from the battery. Why don't they have a fuse for the radio or power Windows? And why don't they make parts out of something other than plastic? I have been buying parts from the Audi dealership, and modifying them to work on my Jeep. Its now a Jedi.


Best Features

It looks cool. and the Audi parts work great.


Worst Features

start making it in Mexico or china the quality would be better than you have now.

Review

I have been driving my Jeep almost 4 years now and have been pleasantly surprised. It has held up fairly well. The only issues have been with the starter and a replaced pinion seal. Its been a thrill to drive on the road, snow, rain, mud, and sand. I never got stuck or was beaten off the line. The 4x4 and Hemi are excellent.


Best Features

Hemi, 4x4, Stereo, Heated Seats


Worst Features

Cheap plastic, gas mileage, very cramped back seats, rattles
