Very good overall, brakes problematic
By Charlie Grayson on


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


The beauty of this vehicle is it is
relatively small for an SUV with the
power of a V8 and 6300lb towing
capacity. You won't find another
vehicle that can pull as well that
drives like a car when you aren't
pulling. Things I don't like: front
brake rotors will warp under normal use
every 10-15K miles and will need
resurfacing to prevent shimmy. Jeep's
warranty on this is 6K, I think. Also
think front seats could be a bit
firmer. Poor fuel economy when towing
about 5500 lbs---about 9 mpg. Rear end
makes a whirring noise when moving very
slowly (5 mph or less), but is normal.
Other than brakes, no real problems.

Best Features

Towing capability is outstanding for relatively small SUV. V8 power is great.

Worst Features

Brake longevity without warping. Better seats--mainly front, but rear, too. Improved gas mileage. Side-impact airbags in front and rear.
