1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought mine 2nd owner, low miles.
Loved driving it: comfortable, stylish
and plenty of power. Maintenance and
reliability issues popped up after
about 50k miles. Tire/rotor troubles,
replaced brakes, etc. then had the
front drive shaft go out @ 70k on a
roadtrip 500 miles from home. Traded
it before I poured any more cash down
the hole.


Best Features

Power, plush interior, styling.


Worst Features

Fuel economy (shouldn't have bought the 5.9L) and RELIABILITY.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I've had my Jeep for over a year now,
bought it with about 46,000 miles on
it. I've had to replace my sway bar
links, had to have a my exhaust
manifold fixed, seal on the sunroof,
replaced the drivers seat (heater
didn't work) and have had to replace
several speakers twice. Poor speakers
for the quality of the stereo. Now
while driving if I hit a bump the wrong
way, my steering wheel goes crazy and I
have to hold on for dear life until it
decides to stop, haven't figured out
what this problem is but I hope soon
otherwise I may end up in a ditch
because you can't stop the SUV while
the steering wheel is shaking
uncontrolably.


Best Features

Stereo components on the steering wheel and the vehicle is very roomy.


Worst Features

Please help with better gas mileage.

Review

I inherited this loved vehicle, it sat
unused over a year. All it's needed is
regular oil changes, brake pads, new
tires,a battery, except for a inside
door handle that broke, 125.00
est.repair.Use Jeep brake pads, others
don't s fit right. Runs like a CHARM,
very comfortable,fun to drive, great
manueverability. Never taken off road.
Towed a small uhaul once,great
results. Like more rear space, my
prefered cars vans,trucks, but sold
other car to keep this one liked it so
much. Only complaint is in putting the
rear seats down you have to move the
front seats up, could have been
better design. And is this car
RELIABLE, you betcha WOW!!!!


Best Features

Comfort, love FEEL, response, manueverability. Reliabile, no breakdowns. Quiet ride. Love color, design, lines. Thought I'd hate automatic, diehard shifter humble. Easy drive. Surprised,didn't need 4x4 in snow, went everywhere needed. Power and guts and goodlooks, nice combo.


Worst Features

Fuel costs reflect heavy chassis.No whimp wagon. Better gas mileage a plus, rather feel safe. Rear seats could be easier to lower. Wouldn't change much, would be fun with 4x4. This is fine, good car.

Review

I dont usually buy Domestic, and now I
know why... While generally reliable,
the gas mileage is poor,I am now
inundated with repairs,9 At
105,000..and the fit out and comfort is
not nearly as nice as the competitors
at Toyota,or Nissan.

IF I had to o it over again, the extra
5k for the Import is well worth it.


Best Features

Favorite feature, is the navigational tools such as compass direction, avg gas mileage, outdoor temperature etc... its a handy tool.


Worst Features

Fuel injected engines, better fitout, and higher quality parts to reduce the number of garage visits.. This car should not be failing at 100,000 miles, but it is..
