A $35K piece of junk
By Rick vW on


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


Nothing but electrical problems with Jeeps (I owned 3 and each time I was convinced by the dealer I had an anomalous car). Year 2: driver seat electric stops working. Year 2: door panel comes loose and cannot be attached. Year 3: many tranny problems, leakages, starting problems. $6000 in total cost. Year 4: extreme cracking of seat leather (LOWEST GRADE!), leakage of tranny fluids, loud airplane noise from tranny. Year 5: real electrical problems start: lights won't go out. 3 batteries dead, electric windows will not go up. I get about 170 miles out of 20 gallons, the car drives like a tank and with all the problems it is just garage parked at this point. ASK YOURSELF: $35k for this?

We suggest Jeep close it's doors and buy second grade technology from a Japanese company and I am sure it will still be much much better.
