We have owned this vehicle just over 1
year. It has only had a few minor
problems which were quite inexpensive
to repair. Handles very well in the
snow and ice. Wish fuel economy was
better but still is quite good in
comparison to other similar sized
SUV. Would buy another one when the
This Jeep pulls a 23 ft salt water
fishing boat to the gulf and east coast
twice a year. It has always performed
extremely well. Plenty of torgue for
towing and very reliable. The GoodYear
Wranglers that came on it sucked and
even w/rotation wore out at 32000 miles
I'll buy another Jeep when ready. This
is Jeep number 5. My first was a 4.0
litre Comanche pickup, then two
Cherokee 4X4s and two Grands. You can
have your wanna be Japanese SUVs I'll
take the one I rely on for power at a
reasonable price - Jeep!
Great towing ability. The 4.0 litre in
line six was just fine, but this
Mercedes built 4.7 is incredible.
300lbs of torgue.
Scrap the Goodyear Wranglers and
improve rear seat comfort.
We bought this Jeep as a tow vehicle for
a 20' runabout. I can't complain because
there has been no problems in the last
10,000 mile. From all the reviews I've
read,it seem these jeeps are either a
hit or a failure with nothing in the
middle. Perhaps Chrysler should take
note and increase quality control or
extend warrenties to 10 years.
My came with the V8 and all wheel drive.
Its quick and has fairly good handling
for a truck. We had an early snow storm
this year and it posed no problems for
Gas milage is poor. At 55mph for 200
miles I got 18 mpg. On average it gets
14.5 to 15.5 mpg. I also wish the
front seats would go down further to
accomidate taller drivers.
Baught this vehicle because of the
looks and comfort it is certainly in my
opinion the best looking SUV on the
market and, the comfort is luxurious to
say the least.However,Mechanicly it is
a nightmare.I just had the replace the
whole rear-end at a cost of $1500.00
The rear window leaks,There is a whine
in the tranny.As much as I love this
vehicle its just to much of a risk for
otheres to buy one.If you do, I hope
you keep a mechanic withn you at all
times.BTW,It had 69000 on it when I
Chrysler should do something about
there Q&A department.
