Love the JEEP

ReviewI have heard many stories out there about the poor gas milage of the Jeeps.
Do not believe them.
Sure, they will drink down the gas in gulps if you are getting it on, which they will do!
However in mixed driving to work 25 miles mixed city and freeway, with the smaller V8, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is AVERAGING 19.5 Miles per gallon.
On the Highway, it is getting 24 miles per gallon AVERAGE!
so, for a 4X4 SUV, I would say that is really good!
The SUV rides smooth, nimble, small turning radius, all I can want. With Michelin Snows, it digs in deep snow like child's play.
If you want a real nice SUV, this is the one for you!
1 year later - Two disappointments - The 2008 Limited also lost an Alternator at about 55,000 miles. Not acceptable.
Front and Rear Shocks and Struts replaced at 60,000 miles.
The 2007 Grand Cherkoee
The Back shocks made it to 115,00 which I consider good.
Has 135,000 on the Front Struts which have not leaked, but getting weak. The original Alternator is still working great on the 2007. Great!
Jeep / Chrysler could have done better. This is why the likes of Subaru, Toyota are shining. The OEM parts are under rated on purpose on American Brands. They need to step it up! Jeep , now Italian - We will see.
We love these vehicles especially in Minnesota Winters. Child's play.
