I'm going to have to agree with you here! I had an older model Jeep Cherokee that was incredibly reliable for years and just recently traded it in to get a more "fuel efficient vehicle", but here only a year later - I'm about to go back and get a new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee again. When I was living up near Lake Tahoe, CA a few years back, I had to get up the mountain early on Thanksgiving day just after it snowed a few FEET of snow! I was nervous as I was the only one on the road and there were no signs of plows. As I climbed the mountain, the snow got deeper and the freeway was unrecognizable - just looking like a white field. I put my Jeep in 4Lo and continued to plow through snow that was now up to my windows and coming over the hood of the car. It made it through a condition that I'd never seen in all my life living in Tahoe and was an experience that will make you a Jeep fan for life! I recalled it while reading your similar experience and can't wait to get rid of my new car to go back to my Jeep!Report it
"I was driving 50-60 mph on highways covered in 6+ inches of snow and occasional 2 foot snow drifts"!!! Jeeps are great 4wd vehicles, but they do not suspend the laws of physics. You need to slow down in bad weather.Report it
