2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
This is my first Jeep after loving them since I was little.
It's rugged while still comfortable.
The speakers are loud and clear, it's comfortable on long trips, and it's quite trusting when you find yourself in bad weather.
It swings around to get into parking spaces that other SUVs wouldn't be able to fit into because they don't have a sharp turn.
This one does without being scared of embarrassing yourself with having to reverse a million times.
SUVs are normally bumpy but this one is pretty fun when it does bounce.
The style is masculine but feminine enough for women to drive it without feeling like a guy.
I love the stereo dash looks.
It feels like luxury without removing the rugged look Jeep has.
It has several different options like MP3 CD, 6 CD changer, AUX and Satellite.
The engine needs to be a little bigger.
While other SUVs with 3rd row seating come with 4.0 engine, they are faster.
Jeeps have a 3.7 and seem sluggish at times.
I wish I could get the 4.0 engine without a V8 for speed.
You end up using more gas but choose one:
smaller engine and slow with lower mpg or bigger engine, speed and higher mpg.
Sometimes you need that speed to get out of the way of the crazies.
