Fun Car.....Poor Reliability

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
4x4 brand new and had absolutely no
problems with it until I hit 70k miles.
Then everything started to fall apart
(radiator, thermostat, heated seats,
shocks, hoses, belts, and a clicking
noise is coming from the transfer case
which make me afraid to take it in for
fear that the dealer will tell me to
replace the transmission). Other than
that, it's been a great car, and I
still get have as much fun driving it
as I did the day I bought it.

Best Features

V-8 Power, Infiniti Sound system, heated seats (which are now broken), and commanding driving view and feel.

Worst Features

Chrysler needs to improve the reliability of their parts. The Jeep Dealer now wants $1000 for a 90k mile check up. I decided to pass! Need better quality paints. V-8 gas mileage is terrible--13-14 mpg on average (and I do mostly highway driving).
