2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first jeep let alone my first car. Bought it with 76,000 miles and just hit 100,000 miles. Compared to my dads Silverado and my moms trail blazer the ride is definitely better in city and on the highway. I drive fast and hard and hardly let the engine warm up in below freezing temps. I live just over 2 miles from Lake Michigan and when that lake effect snow doesn't stop neither does my jeep. Last summer at 89,000 it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd due to the solenoid between the two going out. $380 fix but the transmission specialist said its a great heavy duty transmission (the same one they put in sprinter vans) and that it's not a common problem.only other problem besides that is at an idle the rpm sometimes bobs between 550 and 750. I've read the same thing on other reviews and it doesn't really seem to give anyone problems. Besides that, it's the easiest vehicle to park out there. Turning radius on it is crazy..even better than my sisters 08 fusion. There are also ZERO blind spots on this car. Gas mileage is poor but I could care less

Review

I have a gray 2006 Jeep and I love it. I have put it through a hard life, driving upstate, and in NYC, in the worst weather and in blistering heat. This Jeep always performd well and is still a very comfortable ride. I had several repair issues, but after 100,000 miles they are expected. new radiator, battery, starter, all standard stuff. The engine is strong, tranny is tight. Darn oxygen sensors have to be changed and they are costly, but it is better than having old carburators. I love my steel colored jeep and I hope to make another review here at 200,000 miles.
ps I bought this off lease at two years old, with 18,000 miles, for about $18,000.00

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The car started off fine but is now troubled with electrical problems. The car constantly gives a transmission over temp alarm even after start up. The ESM is messing up causing erratic shifting. Ever since the n23 recall I have a service 4wd system alarm that will show every start up and not let me engage 4 low. To replace the ESM its going to cost over $700 and is such a common problem it should be recalled. This is my last Chrysler product I will ever buy.


Worst Features

Use quality parts when making a vehicle.

Review

After the hurricane, I needed a ride, and fast, before the post-Sandy lemons flooded the market. I picked up this '06 Laredo with 58,000 mi, very clean except for a strange divot where the driver's right heel would rest. It starts every time I turn the key, and since the passenger window was serviced, every button and light works as advertised. It handles surprisingly well for a truck, and feels confident in the snow and rain. It doesn't accelerate much below 3,000 rpm, but after that it can take off. Maybe it's my driving profile, but the mileage is terrible. We'll see what summer brings, but the A/C should blow a tad colder, but that's a very minor complaint. On balance I'm pretty happy.


Best Features

Interior and exterior styling, front-seat comfort, heater, heated leather seats, sunroof, two trip meters, handling


Worst Features

More rear seat and cargo space, trailer hitch, better mileage, way to switch 4WD off to 2WD
