Jeep's best engine EVER
By Jan on


1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


The inline V6 is the best engine Jeep's ever made, this is fact. Might run 250k ... but, in last month alone, I had to replace battery, starter, alternator, and finally got around to getting estimates on $1,200 air conditioner replacement (leaking), new exhaust, and total electrical system overhaul. My stereo was stolen, and now the windows and locks work only intermittently, and the check engine light has been on for 2 1/2 months, EVEN WHEN THE CAR'S OFF. No diagnostic tests have solved puzzle. It was fabulous until it went bad, and it went bad FAST.

Best Features

Great gas economy for suv 16/22. Powerful little V6. Tough truck.

Worst Features

Nothing that would help, I mean, it's 10 years old.
