Bought one year ago with 68,000 miles. I have put 20,000 miles on it in 12 months. I have had to replace fuel pump for around $600, light sensor for $250, heater blower and heater switch $700. Very concerned about ongoing repairs; these Jeeps seem to be very costly to repair. It also seems to leak a lot of fluids, I have taken it in several times to try and get leaks to stop. Do not like that the tire is inside and takes up space. I would not buy another one.
4x4 and it pulls wells.
Well, too late to improve the 1997 and not sure how the new ones are!
I got a great deal on my 97 Grand
Cherokee Limited and I love it! I have
owned Subarus for the last 15 years in
Alaska, but I am enjoying my Jeep even
more. Goes great in snow and ice with
no studs. Love the stereo and options
galore. Has 97000 miles and my
mechanic has found no mechanical
problems. I still have to get the
driver's heated seat fixed, power not
getting there. I will keep this one
until it dies, then get another.
Electric sunroof, leather seats are
comfy, stereo controls on the steering
wheel, lots of head room, I finally
sit up high.
Move the spare underneath, a bit more
leg room in the back seat.
Can't believe the deal I got on this
Jeep! 97000 miles and it's running
stronger than I could have asked.
Fuel economy is amazing compared to my
father's 4.3 V-6 GMC, I get 25-28mpg
on the highway! Handles like a dream,
and the Quadratrac is great. There
are some squeaks and little rattles,
but nothing overly noticeable.
Wonderful quality. Love the leather
seats, they are soft and comfortable.
Tons of room, I'm 6'2" and don't need
the driver's seat all the way back. I
love this Jeep more every day. I am
very confident it will go over 200kmi!
SUNROOF!!! Leather, Quadratrac Tons
of room. Sound system is great.
Towing capability, power from I-6 is
More rear cargo room, easier rear seat
folding. Chrysler's notorious tranny
probs....how many years has it been???
