2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is the first new vehicle I've ever bought, and I'm loving it! The seats are very comfy--I like the heated seats in the winter, the ride is smooth, it'll drive anywhere, and it looks cooool. The 4.7L V8 has power to spare--I'm glad I didn't spend the extra money for the Hemi. I can carry a lot of cargo inside, plus with the roof basket and bike racks I can carry almost anything for a weekend in the woods. This Jeep also handles like a dream. I never imagined an SUV could take corners like this! The ride is smooth in spite of the on/off road tires, even at highway speeds. Traction control, ABS, Quadra Trac II, airbags everywhere.
Heated leather seats, excellent handling, nice ground clearance, amazing Alpine navi/DVD/HDD/CD/ MD/mp3/memory stick sound system *sorry--only available in Japan'; even the stock stereo sounds good, though. Safety features galore. I feel confident that I can drive anywhere in this Jeep.
I have the same gripe as everyone else who drives a big V-8--mileage. Although the leather seats are nice, the large amount of plastic inside isn't. More trim options in Japan would be nice. Make the interior air filter standard.
