1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


For the most part I love my jeep.
However, I bought it with about 78,000
miles and got to about 100K before
starting to have problem after
problem. All my issues center around
the serpentine belt...we've replace
every motor or compressor attached to
it as well as the tensioner arm (too
many times to count). We've also had
to replace the CV joints and boots on
both sides. I think it's a bad design
and that's why so many of us have had
to replace items working off the
serpentine belt.

We get one thing fixed
that's attached to the serpentine belt
and then something else on the belt
needs to be fixed...sigh...

Best Features

I love the heated seats!!!

Worst Features

Obviously what is mentioned above needs work. Wish there was a little more room between the front and back seats. A large man and two carseats does not make for a comfortable ride.
