Loved my Jeep, but

ReviewI loved my Jeep. Here's why. Previously, I had a '94 Grand Cherokee with the I-6 engine. That lasted us 12 years before I sold it and bought my '04 (in '06), and the last several years that I'd owned the '04, I'd had a 3500 lb. boat to pull. it was a dog. But, my '04, with the V8, was AWESOME for towing. It was so much fun to drive, too. But, in the end, the reliability killed me. I had to replace the power window mechanism on 3 of the 4 doors, the body was starting to rust (at 6 years of age), and I'd had to replace a front wheel bearing. If not for the rust, I probably would have kept it, but today I drove home my new (to me) Honda Pilot. 16 years of owing JGC's, over, sigh.
Best FeaturesPowertrain, this Jeep could haul a boat like a champ. I LOVED the power, especially after driving the I6 engine for 12 years before this. So much power from the V8.
Worst FeaturesWindow mechanisms killed me. Body starting to rust at 6 yrs.
