2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned this Jeep for about 5 years now and have put about 40,000 miles on it. Total mileage now 110,000. Total upkeep expenses approx $4500 including batteries twice. I think $75 a month upkeep is not bad considering all. The strong points with my Jeep are the Engine and Drive Train. Weak points electronics. I can attribute even the electronics problems to wear and tear though.


Best Features

Design, High quality paint job, strong V8 engine and drive train. I have the factory towing package.


Worst Features

No sure what to say here. If kept up the Laredo will do you a fine job in my opinion.

Review

The problem is with the quality. My Jeep has reached 99,300 miles and the latest problem is that the transmission is gone. Reverse gear stopped working. It will be a $3,000 repair charge. Other Issues : Automatic window motor cables broke - 5 times. Each repair cost $350-$400. The rear trunk door springs broke, cost to repair $250. The gear shift had problems due to which it would skip gear one. After numerous trips to the service shop finally they fixed the governor and some part for $800. A certain speed sensor would switch of the power at full speed in the highways. The sensor replacement cost over $1,000. The relay switch for the cooler broke - $250. And there are more things.


Best Features

Comfortable seats. Outside looks.


Worst Features

Work on the quality. If Jeep cannot do that, then it should increase the warranty period.

Review

It seems that there are allot of people out there that love to hate this Jeep, but I must say that it has thoroughly impressed me. I have taken it across the entire north western half of the country and back in the dead of winter and couldn't have felt more confident traveling in this vehicle. With the Quadra-Drive AWD system, 4.7 V8, and heated seats it's almost too easy! 20 MPG overall doesn't hurt, either. Handling/roadholding has also impressed me versus the Land Cruiser and older Range Rover SUV's that I have driven in the past. Reliability has been great thus far, with an easy to work on underhood layout.


Best Features

Comfortable, AWD system, easy to work on (not that i've needed to yet). Will be fun to modify down the road...


Worst Features

Not enough OEM underbody protection (i.e. skid plates, tunnel guards, etc.) for heavy off-roading, OEM wheels are too 'bling-bling' for my tastes, gears can be a bit noisy at times.
