2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Bought this "almost new" Jeep from Auto Gallery of Winnipeg. After few weeks when cleaning the vehicle I realized that the whole side of the vehicle has been repainted possibly due to accident. Went back to the dealer, they offered another 06 GC vehicle if I paid arm and leg in difference. I kept the vehicle and two years later both doors and rear fender started developing serious rust. Not knowing what other surprises are there, traded it for 08 GC. Beside the bad experience with the dealer, 06 GC was a very reliable, no problems during 50 000km of ownership.
Reliability, headlights, mirrors
06 GC 4.7 engine needs better gas mileage and more power, there are many V6's that produce more HP from less displacement. Front pillar is very thick and obscures visibility to the front, dangerous enough to completely hide a pedestrian. Lower rear cargo floor
