2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
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.
The drive of the vehicle, acceleration, handling, front seat interior.
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
