2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
It takes a special sort of person to drive a Jeep. If you drive it like a Toyota, you will probably hate it. If you have had Jeeps previously, you know the "when the weather gets ca-ca you pull your select/command trac lever". Not so in this. First time that all time 4WD is at the base model. *Even though the machine delivers top notch treacherous road handling ability, you will forget that its an all time, all wheel drive vehicle and still reach for the lever.* Electronic Gas Pedal is very fickle!It gets confused going up/dwn rolling hills, almost as if it doesnt know if its going up or down the hill, same thing when accelerating at speeds 25-40 mph, I.E. getting on highways from onramps.
All time 4WD, Suspension ~ keeps the stiff Jeepiness feel. (2) troughs on the hood, (7) spokes on the grill... Less rear transfer case slap, but still there
Traction indicator on the dash (maybe a green color like the fog lamp light)to let me know when the 4WD is taking over. The NOT fly by wire, aka Elec. Gas Ped is the #1 complaint in all the posts, that's why you get no power if you gun it on on onramps or when "kind of" accelerating on mild hills
