2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
This is my second Jeep. Traded in a 1999 GC limited in Nov 05. Have also driven long term/owned a Lexus 330 (wife's car), 2005 Durango (long term rental), an X5 4.4 , and 2002 Land Rover. Out of this group my $42K+ Jeep is the least refined and has the poorest build quality. Loose door handles and passenger door, wipers that turn on whenever, clunky drivetrain, tweeter shorted from factory, rough shifts. Other than these items the truck is unique in that it corners well, blows the doors off almost anything in its path and is impressively plush. Overall would not buy it again given the price tag and the quality issues. Service has been of very low caliber; nowhere near Lexus or BMW.
HEMI, cornering, sat radio, quiet ride, UConnect.
Reduce "float" in suspension, bigger wheels, better build/fit, improved service, touch screen nav, better speakers, faster CD changer.
