So far, So good
By Bill Sandlin on
2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is my first Jeep purchase. Traded an Acura TL & a 1999 Chev Tahoe so I wanted an SUV that performed close to the TL and had the same amenities, ie, bluetooth, leather, comfort, etc. Also needed the towing capacity of the Tahoe. So far it has meet all my expecations. Rides nice, has everything my TL had except for the navigation system. With the HEMI the jeep is quicker than the TL and handles almost as well. Also drove the 4 runner & the Jeep handled better and the interior of the 4 runner actually seemed cheaper than the jeep. So far, so good on the reliablity. Driven over 8,500 miles and 3 long road trips. No problems! Of course the gas mileage stinks, but expected with a V-8.
Hemi, Sirius radio, Uconnect, towing capacity, ride and handling. Quadra-Drive II system.
More leg room in rear and cargo capacity, although adequate for my needs. Bigger gas tank. Speedometer to be the dominant gauge on panel. Sometimes hard to read.
