2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
i have this jeep with now 120,000 miles on it withe 4.7 v8. its been very reliable so far just the regular maintenance. my only complain is the passenger side airbag sensor light is on for a long time now. i drive it like crazy everyday. im lead foot driver so i only average 13 miles a gallon doing 60%city and 40% highway. by lead foot i mean full throttle while accelerating if you want this vehicle to be reliable put castrol synthetic oil every 3000 miles or 3 months whatever comes first. jeep pulls great with a lot of low end torque. i will say i does got some minor electrical issues. dah!!! its a jeep it gonna always have some of those.
Tranny isvery smooth
premium sound system was alright but upgraded to after market stereo and kenwood high performance speakers and upgraded the amp to kicker eight channel. it sounds even better now with plenty of bass equal to two small sub woofers.
4.7 v8 could use a little bit more power i say like 40 more hp and 60 more lbs of torque .or put a turbo 4 cyl diesel engine with 400-450lbs punds of torque and aroud 230-250 hp.
