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


Completely fed up. Bought this with 31K miles in July 05; nothing negative in CarFax. Was out of town 3 months so have only driven it 5 months yet I've had to take it for service 9(!) times now: multi cylinder misfires (twice), valve over carbonization (twice), oxygen sensor failed/replaced, fuel line leaked, tensioner pulley fell out of engine (!) and replaced, pass-side window collapsed plus needed several parts replaced, and a few generic engine malfunctions. Unbelievable. Was there NO quality control? Only 35K miles now - should NOT be like this. I hate my car.

Best Features

Moonroof, and the exterior appearance. Very nice looking car.

Worst Features

The 03 Jeep Grand Cherokees had lots of engine problems. Most were addressed in 05 and 06. The non-engine problems I've had, however, seem like random flukes. A dangerous, inconvenient, never ending series of lousy random flukes. Suggest Jeep quality control all vehicles, and dealers stand behind the defective ones they sell.
