Dan's view of the Jeep GC
By Dan Constantinide on


1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Generally, this is a good, reliable
automobile. Over 96000 miles with no
reliability problems. The transmission
shift points are questionable. One odd
experience that cost me 800 dollars
involved a front drive shaft that all
of a sudden developed a leaky joint
because it was too short. This happened
after replacing the front diff yoke and
the corresponding seal (the latter
several times). Of course, nobody owned
up to any wrong doing or design issues.

Best Features

The steering wheel mounted radio control buttons. The very serene interior cabin design (elegant and tasteful with the leather interior). Very handsome vehicle.

Worst Features

Better match between engine (5.2 L V8) and transmission shift points. A more agile steering system. This thing feels like an elephant in high heels in tight corners, in spite of the relatively small turning radius (or because of it?).
