2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
2005 Grand Cherokee, purchased used 2006 w/ 29,000. Was fine until 35,000 and the Tranny Blew! Heard about it, read about it and then experienced. Love the ride, the storage, but can't get past the transmission problems. Would like to buy another Jeep, but can't forget the burn it gave me the first time. Sorry can't recommend, unless you have $3,000 for a Transmission.
2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Bought this used, in 15 months been in the dealers 5 times. Still under the 7- 70 coverage, but doesn't ever get fixed. Shift and noise issues. Dealer replaced trans valve body, trans went out all together days later. They serviced the front diff, same thing,diff went out days later. Every time gets worse after they touch it. At the dealer now, "no problem found", sounds like a Mack truck going down the road. Just waiting to see what else they've screwed up. Have the v-8, power lacking, gas mileage stinks. My wife loves it for some reason. My Tahoe at 130k is twice the car this ever was, less noise, better mpg, very few repairs, nothing major like this thing.
My wife loves the blue tooth, I don`t have to look at it much, normally at the dealer "not getting fixed".
A little quality would help, better bearings in the drive line, a few less rattles. Think they might last longer if you didn't service them. Doesn't help to change the fluids when the bearings are junk
