2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my forth JGC last Fall. A disappointment for sure. The first two JGC I bought were sturdy, spirited and were mostly maintenance free. I bought a 2005 JGC vehicle (used w/20K miles), the transmission failed within two weeks. I was able to get it refurbished under a recall notice. This car continued to be a problem with leaking transmission and delayed/sluggish acceleration. I traded this one in for a new 2007 JGC believing that my former problems were because that vehicle was used. Not true. My new JGC sporadically has had strange transmission problems. On two occasions the transmissions cutout during a rain storm, the dealer has not been helpful.
I missed the "old" Jeeps - the new versions quality don't compare.
The acceleration and transmission need improvement. The acceleration is choppy/delayed and the transmission can be a problem periodically. Who can help - I'm still within the 3yr warranty, but the dealer sees no problem with the transmission.
