1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Very "cool" vehicle as far as looks
go. However, not "cool" when it comes
to a functioning A/C. I first had a
$400 compressor clutch repair then 6
months later a $750 evaporator coil
repair. At 86,000 miles the
transmission began to slip, there was a
strange knocking noise from the rear
end and the driver's side window motor
began going out.

Best Features

Looks good, inside and out. Nice ride and 4 wheel drive worked well.

Worst Features

Better A/C, needs rear vents. Spare tire in cargo area took up a lot of space. I traded in for a Ford Escape XLT and it is sweet.
