This is not my experience.
I bought a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited new and I still drive it.
Many comment that it looks brand new.
No rust 8 years later, tows a 23 foot travel trailer easily, and the only real problem was with a faulty battery.
And I DO NOT GET STUCK with the four wheel drive system that it took BMW years to catch up to.
Toyota does not tow like a Grand Cherokee and I think Volvos require high test gas - a big expense that continues for the life of the vehicle.
The Jeep runs on regular gas.
I disagree with advoman56 and very much agree with cherokee11. I bought my 2005 Grand Cherokee slightly used and have had zero problems with it and still drive it as my daily car. It is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. Handles all weather conditions like a champ and is far better than that foreign garbage that the media is trying so hard to push on consumers.
