I could have done better

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Leased this Limited 4.7 AWD..at 1,600 miles had catastrophic transmission failure not uncommon with the Daimler 300 series auto tranny. Opted for new Jeep replacement after they wanted to give back original with drivetrain removed and replaced. 2nd vehicle had a locked rear caliper so I got new rear brakes after a few miles. So-so gas mileage and typical V-8 (USA style) performance, i.e. mediocre which WOT producing a lot of engine thrashing noise but little acceleration. Large A pillars and bulky rear view mirror setup makes for large forward, lt/rt. blind spots. Interior plastic soft and easily scratched, like "soft" exterior paint. Comfortable seating, moderate rear leg room,
I didn't buy it, leased!
The Jeep Grand Cherry does what it can trying to keep the cost down, and the "you get what you pay for" adage applys..more fuel efficiency would help. I hooked a wideband O2 sensor to her and it showed a 10:1 AFR at WOT in a N/A engine!..geez, rich enough ??
