1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

At under 60,000 miles I've already
replaced both the front and rear
differentials. Now I'm having
transmission problems as outlined in
bulletin 21-02-99 (harsh 1-2 shift at
speeds of 10-15 mph). Jeep will not
stand by their transmissions or assist
me in any way. I will never buy a Jeep
or Chrysler vehicle again and I
strongly recommend you look elsewhere
unless you like visiting repair shops.


Best Features

The tires have held up well and I expect to get 70,000 miles out of them, which is at least 12,000 more than my transmission. But that's probably because they were manufactured by Goodyear, not Chrysler.


Worst Features

Too many to list in 300 characters or less...

Review

Bought mine used with 52,000. Did
brakes and serpentine belt. Had been
offroad a fair amount per prior owner.
Now have 64,000. Really have had no
problems. Have heard the street talk
about transmission failures but no
problems with mine. Again, I think it
matters quite a bit how they're used
(towing/offroad/overheating)and
maintained.


Best Features

Power, ride (yes, they sway a little, but this one has the up-country suspension).


Worst Features

Not the most modern design now, but still good overall.

Review

We are very happy with our Jeep. It is
the best vehicle we have ever owned
outside of our Nissan Maxima. We love
the Jeep equally for its quality and
beauty.

Review

I have had a very good experience with
my Jeep. I was a little concern about
buying a redesigned model in 1999.
But I bought it at the end of the
model run, and they must have ironed
out the kinks because I have had no
problems with mine. Very reliable,
fun to drive, great acceleration.


Best Features

Hieght, ground clearance, no worries about pot holes, lot of cargo space, great acceleration, tows like nothing is attached.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. But that is true about all SUV's.

Review

I am trying to think of something
good to say about our Jeep, wait "I
have it," it's for sale in the
newspaper. Entire front wheel
bearing assembly replaced at 60K.
Water pump at 65K. Air signed off at
60K. The interior room in this car is a
joke for such a heavy car. Quality
throughout is a nightmare. Windows
quit working. Hood lifts replace every
40K. Used the 4WD one time in
snow and developed oil leak in
transfer case 1 week later. I could go
on but I know you get the message.
Any car out there is going to give you
better service than this Chrysler
made piece of JUNK !!!!!!!!!!!


Best Features

Looks good, but what did your mother tell you?


Worst Features

Sell Jeep-Chrysler to Honda Motor Corporation. Scrap entire model and start over.
