2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Great vehicle. I bought it for winter all wheel drive and towing motorcycles. It has done everything well. Comfortable and quiet for travel. Only mechanical issue is a stripped cog on the electric seat adjustment (it gets used a lot). Just reached 60,000 after five years. Only drawbacks, besides the seat, are poor fuel economy in town and towing, and the relatively extensive routine maintenance. On balance, compared to other cars and trucks I've owned, it has been a good value. My wife likes it, so it would be nice to have two (the seat would last longer).
Good all wheel drive. Quiet interior.
Longer intervals for all wheel drive system maintenance. Better materials in the 8-way seat mechanism.
