1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV


Bought in 98 to replace small pick-up, smart buy; still primary vehicle. Have 240K and it literally runs like it did, with little effort. Inline 6 is awesome engine. Around 225K gas mileage began to fall, didn't run smooth. Changed idle air control valve sensor and throttle body sensor (both less than $80) and got back its original mileage & performance. Had trans rebuilt @162K, changed radiator, water pump, some other minor I did myself. The inline 6 is a good buy. Friend has 96 with 483K still running & driving.

Best Features

Straight 6 is virtually bullet proof, delivers good HP, and easy to maintain. If/when repairs are needed costs less than most other vehicles.

Worst Features

Sensors and interior can't hold up to what the engine can.
