1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Overall, a good SUV. Very little
trouble until now. Recently replaced
the water pump, fuel pump, and Battery.
This is it's third Battery. I can't
complain though, I see this as normal
wear and tear items for a vehicle with
175k. The only complaints I have is
with the door panels. They started to
come apart at 100k. All 4 panels will
run you around $600.00, and you
install. Exhaust header is also a
problem. It cracks and develops a
leak. There are aftermarket headers
available. I found Gibson headers to
be the most desirable. These are
direct replacement, and bolt right in.
All in all, I like my Grand.

Best Features

Way more classy than a stupid mini "geek" van, and 4x4 to boot.

Worst Features

I think most of the issues I mentioned have been cured in the later models. I was told when buying a Grand, stick with 1996 or newer models to minimize problems.
