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


Review

I bought my Jeep as a demo with @ 6000 miles. I have 42,500 miles on it now and it's still under warranty until 75,000 or December 2011. I've been very happy with the comfort and reliability of this Jeep. Very few if any problems. The only thing disheartening is very poor gas mileage. Don't underestimate how much the gas will cost you. I'm seriously considering a 2007 BMW 335i series now and by my estimate I will save $100 month on gas, and pay only $15 more on insurance. It's hard for me to ignore. But I must say it's hard to think about possible maintenance on the BMW, when this vehicle has been so cost free and will cont. I'm hoping the ext warranty will help me to sell.


Best Features

Bluetooth, reliability, space, comfort, satellite radio, good acceleration even for a V6,


Worst Features

Better MPG.

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


Review

I bought my car as a demo. I noticed automatically that when I would stop it would shake and seemed like it wanted to turn off. I took it in and they "fixed" it. That problem was never fixed. The mileage is bad I get 13.6 miles city AND highway. THe check engine has come on since I bought it and they could never find anything wrong with it. My power windows now stop sometimes. The alarm is not working. Did I mention the gas? That is horrible. I always wanted to own one of these vehicles I liked it at the beging because it was pretty then the seats really got stained and I could not find anyone who could take the stains on. I would not get one again looking to trade in value is low


Best Features

pretty car at beginning


Worst Features

better seats better mileage better warranty...should not be standard 36000...should have a 75000 mile warranty

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


Review

I just purchased the Laredo 65 yr anniversary edition. Its a great looking car. I like all the features. I've heard jeeps drive rough so I didn't expect to much comfort before test driving. I'm pretty content with it. However, I've had it for 2 days and I'm noticing some no-nos already! The problems I'm seeing already is the low tire pressure light comes on at random. But the big thing is the seat belt light comes on and chimes through out the entire ride even with my seat belt on and nooo weight in the passenger seat! I'm in the process of getting it fixed (hopefully), but I just wanted to put those problems out there just in case somebody else had the same issues


Best Features

The chrome colored molding on the side of the car instead of that terrible dull plastic. The sun roof. The cruise control on the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Radio adjustments on the steering wheel. Aux hook up for an ipod!

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Many publications rated Acura MDX and Nissan Pathfinder better than the '06 JGC. We preferred the ride of the JGC but bought an MDX. Two years later, we traded the MDX in for the JGC Overland in order to pull a 26' trailer/RV. The JGC had a noticeably smaller cargo area in the hatch and a tad smaller backseat, but that aside absolutely LOVE driving our JGC... BUT, there have been problems. In 2008 our powersteering pump went (under warranty), in 2009 our starter went (not covered), and both the hood and the hatch hydraulics are shot. Chrysler has a reputation of being the poorest North American manufacturer and this is apparent as these issues shouldn't happen in a newer vehicle.


Best Features

The drive of the vehicle, acceleration, handling, front seat interior.


Worst Features

Controls for the ceiling mount DVD in the front seat area would be great. It's a problem trying to get movies going for the kids from the front seat. Overall better quality of parts!!!! Aside from my power steering and starter issues,I love the Jeep but will likely not buy another Chrysler product
