Worst Car I Have Ever Owned. Never Again
By Skeeter on
2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Where to begin...bought as a 1 yr lease turn-in. In the first 36,000 miles, had to replace transmission shifter, ignition system, and car would sputter and stall (a well documented issue with the 3.6L engines on two other jeep models). Was told multiple there was no problem and that it was normal (dealerships and customer service). At 45,000 miles, airbag light started randomly coming on. Dealership could not tell me what was wrong. Power windows would come and go. Miles-to-empty tracker is completely sporadic. Do not trust it, find a gas station immediately after the light goes on (within 5 miles)! Cloth seats stain and spot with water. Wrangler tires are terrible, loud and ware unevenly.
Aux plug is a great feature, as well as all the options under the on-board computer. Storage areas in cargo area are very handy. Tire changing is easy for an under-mount spare. Engine is very quiet. Exterior styling is attractive.
Fix the major blind spots when changing lanes and turning. The cargo area is deceivingly small, due to the glass hatch sloping back. A box that fits the footprint of the cargo area, will not come close to fitting at the top unless the 2nd row seat is down. Horrible customer service! Read the reviews
