1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV


Bought last year @148,000 mi. It's a play vehicle and gets about 5000 mi. A year. Have spent money on it from day one. Staring off just trying to make everything perfect. Then I started getting a rear bear nosie. Replaced all rear end bearings. The Carrier bearing was the only one pitted. That didn't fix the the problem. Right rear axle was pitted changed it. That fixed the bearing noise. Then I got a vibration @1600 rpm and on deceleration. Changed u-joints (a waste of $). From what I've read sounds like this is a Major problem that is very hard to trouble shoot (even at a dealer. Don't want to spend any more $ on it. I'm torn between spending and just selling it. I love to drive it but the vibration.

Best Features

leather steering wheel,looks,leather seats, cockpit,

Worst Features

Jeep needs to man up and if the transmission and rear end problems. High maintenance. Not worth the problems I don't think. Will not buy another one. Only if Jeep would build a better product.
