2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Look before you leap. If you are in the market for a fun to drive SUV, this jeep offers a smooth ride. However, for the $45k plus, you are better off with choosing a luxury model, so you have something to show for it. While they claim, the seats are leather, they feel and smell like plastic or as some marketing genius dubbed it, leatherette. The backseat is so stiff that you can barely make it around the block without a backache. Same for front seats, no lumbar! Engine revs a lot, between shifting and no one needs to remind you how often you will be handing the gas attendant $50+ to fill er up. I'm stuck in a lease, but the good news, I can just hand the keys over and say so long.

Favorite Features

Satellite radio and headlights. Pretty sad that is the only fav I can report.

Suggested Improvements

Seats are stiff, don't call leatherette leather, cup holders are cheap, no lumbar seats for $45K. Obviously in a hemi, gas mileage is awful, but I swear there is a sieve in the engine that drains the tank at fill up.
