What happened to quality?
By natewo on


2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


I bought my 2002 Cherokee with 42k miles on it.
It is now at 80K miles.
The bulk of miles have come from traveling from utah to idaho to visit family and neither me or my wife are aggressive drivers.
Since I have owned it here is a list of things that broke.
Both front window motors, replaced all four rotors, fixed the transmission, radiator fan relay, The bearings in the back end shattered causing oil to leak onto the e-brake whole back end torn apart to fix that mess, blown head gasket, cracked head, water pump... I was so excited to get a Jeep and to support an American car company.
1st and last Jeep I will ever own.
Nissan and Toyota, here I come.

Best Features

I didn't drive it enough to really have a favorite feature... I guess just having it run for a few weeks without a problem was the 'highlight.'

Worst Features

Start over. I don't know how you can redeem such a horrible mistake.
