1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I just bought myself a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited the 5.2L V8 about a month ago. So far it has been good to me. I got a really good deal on it and knew it needed a little work. I replaced the valve cover gaskets and the front right axle seals and now it's running very well. It could have a bit nicer interior, but much like Chrysler for the ninetys the interiors are a little cheap. The performance makes up for it though!! (At the cost of fuel) I Love It So Far!!!


Best Features

My favorite features are the AWD and the V8 power.


Worst Features

Interior is pretty cheap and falling apart in some places.

Review

I have had a 1996 Limited Grand Cherokee since 2002.
I like everything about it and it only has minor problems that need fixed.
I have only had some major work on it done every few years usually the same stuff.
This jeep stays outside year round in all weather conditions and it still gets me to point A and B without any problems.
A jeep this age of course needs routine maintenance so its understandable when it has issues.
I truly enjoy driving this jeep even today and I still have people ask me about it and people still comment it.
I am sorry for all the owners out there that have had problems with theirs I will have this jeep till it stops running a truly great suv
to own! Thanks Jeep

Review

I have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee it is a 5.2l beast that puts trucks to shame. Goes any where anytime and always kills the competition. I have over 216k miles on her but all she needed so far is a water pump and some some new axle bearings. transfer case was never shifted into low until i got her at 200k miles some lil old lady had never taken her to play around in the dirt. transfer case is an achilles heel but works great if you take care of it. Tows great, sounds like a beast, does better of road than tradition cjs and tjs im always pulling those out of mud. Some beefy tires and a cold air intake give it some traction and better power and fuel economy.Who needs roads when you have a jeep


Best Features

5.2l engine, off road capability, towing, comfort, style , reliability, likes to play in the dirt with the best of them.


Worst Features

Transfer case, catalytic converter,

Review

I love my Jeep and would trade it for the world. I've never had a problem and would recommend to anyone. The inline 6 is great. Gas mileage is great for an SUV. I get about 26-28 hwy and 16-19 city. I put on over 5000 miles in the last 3 months and still no problem. I added some new features such as wider rims and cold air intake and its the hottest thing on the streets. Reliable, strong, efficient. Keep it up Jeep


Best Features

inline 6, classic look, comfortable interior


Worst Features

wider rims adds for ever more stability, cold air intake because you really feel the power at 4000 rpm

Review

We haven't had any problems with this jeep until now at 200,000 miles, it left me stranded by the road the other day. Completely shut off and we had to tow it to the dealership where they replaced the computer and some other things and cost around 1,000. Needless to say the jeep is at the end of it's life span. The exterior paint is worn away, the head liner is completely falling down, looking for another vehicle. Found out there has been multiple issues with the catalytic converter, etc.


Best Features

very comfortable ride
