No problem in blizzard/mud/rain/dessert
By renaroo on


1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Traded in older Jeep, overheated near Vegas en route to Zion during July 4th weekend. Performed flawlessly in the dessert, and A/C kept cool in over 100F temp. Moved to mountains, and helped towed moving truck up the hill when it overheated. Commuted 3 years 90 mi RT, from 5500 ft to sea level, in various conditions: blizzard, ice, mud slides, scorching summer heat with no problem. Rebuilt transmission at 150K. Gas mileage no noticeable change. Hit-n-run accident on the mountain at 170K. Not sure if related to accident, but a few months later: memory loss in computer settings (seat, mirror, radio), heated seat. Now at over 240K mi still works great at -30F. Replaced water pump-no other repairs

Best Features

Dependable all wheel drive, great acceleration, responsive steering, integrated audio control on steering wheel, overhead vehicle status display, privacy retractable blind for cargo area.

Worst Features

Rear door latch intermittent problem, limited storage, spare wheel inside, front grill difficult to clean. Coolant leak noticed at low temp, below freezing. Manual key entry fail to work after 9 years. Remote still works. Rear pax windows do not retract fully down.
