2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my 03 GC Laredo for about 3 and 1/2 years, and I love it every second. I blame the Jeep for 1 incident... The coolant sensor went, which left the coolant fan running after I shut the car off. I came out the next morning to a dead battery. I have also fixed the front 2 power windows, but I cant blame the Jeep. I locked my keys inside and tried a jimmy, but I think I messed something up. I also need to fix the power seat switch. It works in all directions, except backwards. Again, I think it has something to do with the snow I had to scoop out of the inside of the car when the window was broken in the down position during winter. I love my Jeep!


Best Features

Good looking and comfortable interior. Paint and plastic exterior still in great condition. Space for cargo, kids, hubby, and pets. 4 LO and 1st gear=I could climb Mt. Everest. Ive recently moved. My commute WAS 30 miles RT. Now its 110 miles RT. Reliability... YES!


Worst Features

More power. Better gas mileage. Makes a weird noise when making tight turns at low speeds. Engine accelerates quickly then goes back down when setting cruise control. I would like another compartment for spare change or sunglasses. Recently, its started pinging. I guess that's to be expected.

Review

I bought what I thought was going to be a good looking reliable vehicle. I had a Chevy Caprice for over 13 years and was looking to find something I would love as much. I looks HOT! But looks are deceiving. It is '03 and still looks brand new even without a good car wash. BUT... The piece of junk has spent more time in the shop than any vehicle in earth history except maybe another Jeep Grand Cherokee. Seat Heater, Brake rotors, 5 complete sets of brakes and rotors. Shimmies really bad after about 6 months of new brakes. The heater sensor something , air conditioning lvr things, cruise control, battery goes dead, electrical shorts but nobody can tell me why. Would not sell to my worst enemy.


Best Features

The day when I can afford to trade it. I do like the way back handy for carrying stuff. Seats are comfy. The color is awesome Inferno Red pearlized... even though it's junk at least it's a good looking piece of junk.


Worst Features

If it ran and worked as well as it looks that would be something.

Review

I absolutely love my Jeep. I got a dark blue Grand Cherokee Laredo and it is very nice inside and out. I was very skeptical about Jeep from what others have said, but mine is very reliable, pretty good on gas, and a comfortable, but fun ride. The stereo is nice sounding, and the seats are a very nice, comfortable cloth. I really love mine and looking forward to trying out the 4x4 in the future. I was honestly surprised by how well mine is with gas. I drive a fair amount and my gas is barely gone. I definitely recommend the car overall.


Best Features

Info Center to let you know temp, mileage till service, gas mileage, how many miles left, etc. Stereo- not bad for a stock stereo, space- lots of it.


Worst Features

They should put auto headlights in the Laredo;

Review

Never buying another! Relay switch, Window regulator just plays out, A/C has been totally redone, CD player replaced and still not working right, and the gauges will just flicker and the jeep eventually just dies on us. Has been in shop 4 times for this and well, obviously 4x's...they can't seem to find what is wrong. 2003 only 54,000 miles on it!! We wanted a reliable SUV that we could take traveling in and I don't trust it.


Best Features

Exterior is cool.


Worst Features

Make something more reliable! No wonder Daimler Chrysler is going out of business!! I want American products but, not if they can't make something reliable!
