2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my vehicle at 30,000 miles as a one owner lease return. I've absolutely loved this vehicle, the interior is very comfortable, the engine has tremendous power (which I love) and it's been the picture of reliability. I have several colleagues who all have jeeps during this bodystyle and most if not all of them have had only limited even standard maintenance. Several have over 130k with no new engines, transmissions, nothing beyond routine maintenance. The four wheel drive (mine is always on) feels amazing, and during cold weather I pity the other White-knuckled drivers on the road.


Best Features

The torque of the V8, the plushness of the leather seats, and i also like the bright white dials


Worst Features

no real improvements other than a panoramic sunroof would be nice one day, and i wish jeep had a more 'upscale' vehicle instead of always pitching the outdoorsy angle (not counting the overland - a different bodystyle would be nice)

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo new in 2004. It was a V8 demo model with less than 1,000 miles. I got a great deal on it because it was a demo and because of a $6,000 cash incentive. I've driven it now for over five years and have put an average of 23,000 miles per year on it, mostly highway. I had the shocks replaced at around 50,000 miles and all four axle seals replaced at about 70,000 miles. Actually, the rear ones were the only ones leaking but I thought I'd better go ahead and have them all replaced. Other than those two issues, it has been surprisingly reliable. Major services were done at 30K, 70K, and 100K and I did most oil changes myself every 3K to 5K miles.


Best Features

The 4.8 L V8 is smooth, powerful, and surprisingly fuel efficient. I average 22-23 mpg highway in summer and 20 mpg highway in winter. The Quadra Trac II four-wheel drive is great in the wet and on snow & ice and performs flawlessly. I've never needed to lock it in low despite foot deep snow.


Worst Features

None that I can think of. I'm very impressed with my Laredo's reliability, performance, and fuel mileage given that it is a typical big SUV. I'm never getting rid of it!

Review

I'm having problems with my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The power windows don't work and the interior lights wont go off when headlights are on. It doesn't even seem like my 4 wheel drive even works. My mirrors wont work,everything is powered. I had a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Now that was a beautiful suv! Until a tree falls on it and totals it.I love Jeep but not sure about these problems.It may even be the dealships fault. Who knows.....


Best Features

electric seats,power windows,heats up fast,4 wheel drive,exterior look,interior look,good stock stereo


Worst Features

mp3 hook up to radio,no sunroof on mine,i want a sunroof

Review

I bought this vehicle when it came to my bodyshop for some paint work, did a carfax and it was a 1 owner with low mileage, very clean, ran fine for two days, then the oil pressure gauge kept going on and off. I presume it needs an oil pump at 55,000 miles.Not happy.


Best Features

Review

I have never done anything to it other than put one set of tires, one battery, and changed the oil. Great car.
