1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


This is my third Jeep Grand
Cherokee. I have had very positive
experiences with all three. This 97 I
purchased used from a returning
lease. It originally had 22,000. I now
have 77000 and have had no major
problems. There was one issue with
the air conditioning unit last year that
was, if you could believe it, still under
warranty. Obviously Jeep
acknowledged this without a recall
and provided a brand new unit with
installation at no charge, (If you were
under 70,000 miles)

Best Features

I have a simple 6 cylinder with leather interior. The interior is finished rather well and has also held up. The power from the 6 is sufficient for my needs. My other car is an 8 cylinder Durango and there is a significant difference in power (also in gas consumption)

Worst Features

The rear end is a bit noisy. Overall, the passenger compartment is somewhat noisy. Particularly if I have the back seat down. I have regular all season tires so it's not simply the tread.
