Impressed with the 4.0
By BBull on


1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV


Purchased used in 98 with 28K miles, still driving with 242K. Very impressed with the inline 6. Have replaced water pump, EX manifold, computer, etc. mostly myself for low cost. Trans rebuild at 152K. Recently changed idle air control valve and throttle body sensor; got back to average 19MPG in city & 23 MPG HWY. Solid engine, would recommend the inline 6 and would buy again but this one is till running literally like it was 12 years ago.

Best Features

Reliability/dependability of the 4.0 inline 6 cyl, easy low cost to maintain and repair

Worst Features

AC has condensation drain problems. Slightly heavy, hard on tires.
