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


Review

Bought in 05 with 65,xxx miles on it. Other then routine maintenance, just switched out the alternator. Been through 3 serp belts,no idea why. CD player is crapping out on me. Front two speakers are going out. Cooling fan went out at 89,xxx. At 126,xxx, needing new relay switch, A/C light wont come on unless the defrosters are on. Alignment keeps going out. Rear axle keeps leaking. Fuel pump is starting to go out. All not major problems...but when they add up it gets annoying. My favorite part is that the car leaks water every time it rains. The weather stripping is fine except for around the sunroof. No mechanic I know can figure out why it does...


Best Features

Interior...very comfy leather seats, quality vinyl, and a very simple lay out. Comfy car for four or five young adults. Exterior...paint looks great after a good clay-bay and wax. 4x4 is great during the few bad winter weeks of St. Louis Drives and shifts smoothly for an SUV. Plenty of power.


Worst Features

Cupholders...hard breaking or quick turns and your coffee or water bottles is going to be spilled on your lap or on the floor. A little better gas mileage on the V6. Better build quality...all the things going wrong with it lately is forcing me to buy a new car.

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


Review

We bought the GC for the Ohio winters. 4WD is great, but it's the stupid little things that keep breaking. The lock in the rear hatch had to be replaced, the drivers seat broke (and we couldn't get another one that wasn't broken in the same spot, so it had to be welded), This thing eats rotors for breakfast, had to replace the water pump at 40k. Other than that, it's a good vehicle


Best Features

It's a Jeep. One of the best off-road vehicles on the market.


Worst Features

See above review. Bumper and trim fade horribly

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


Review

I bought my 01 Limited in 2007, with 100K miles. It looked well taken care of. Now at 140K miles, all I had to replace was a starter, and window motor. It runs like new, nice pick up. Only thing that doesn't work are the heated seats. Cant complain as I only paid $9000 for it. But it drives smooth and I am impressed.


Best Features

Power, pretty comfortable.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, fautly heated seats,

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased new in 2001. What a mistake, I should have gone for the 4-Runner. I have had to replaced all rotors, calipers and pads twice within the first 25K mi. Three window regulators so far at a whopping $225 each. The reverse gears went out of the transmission. Had to have it rebuilt at a cost of $1800. Idle control value went bad at 75K. Almost forgot, had the have the leaking plastic radiator replaced also.


Best Features

It's comfortable to drive, and still stylish.


Worst Features

What's the point. Chrysler has struggled with unreliable vehicles since the inception of the K-car. It will never change as long as the bean counters are at the helm.

Review

I have only had one major problem with my Jeep when I needed a new transmission at about 110,000 miles. Other than that it drives great and is very reliable. Awesome in the snow! It will drive through anything! Comfortable to drive and handles well. The gas mileage can be pretty brutal especially if you try to go above 70.


Best Features

Off-roading ability, lots of space for moving back and forth to school


Worst Features

The wiring job isn't great. Some of the features (moonroof, trunk 6-CD changer)are very temperamental and will work one day and not the next.
