After Commander now Cherokee

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
Jeep is an excellent value for the money, compared to similar offerings from European manufacturers. It is true that the Cherokee has less space than other off-road capable SUVs, but it has a sportier design. My former Commander offered more space, but added about 500 lbs. Fuel economy is GOOD, compared to SUVs with similar powered and performance. Seats are firm and comfortable.
Overall package is good.
Front seats do not go down enough - compromising head space and view (rood comes down too much). Rear seats cannot be pushed back, or recline for better comfort versus luggage space. Roof rack slats are not removable, as in the Commander, which would safe weight and wind noise. Wind noise too much.
