2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Bought this used, in 15 months been in the dealers 5 times. Still under the 7- 70 coverage, but doesn't ever get fixed. Shift and noise issues. Dealer replaced trans valve body, trans went out all together days later. They serviced the front diff, same thing,diff went out days later. Every time gets worse after they touch it. At the dealer now, "no problem found", sounds like a Mack truck going down the road. Just waiting to see what else they've screwed up. Have the v-8, power lacking, gas mileage stinks. My wife loves it for some reason. My Tahoe at 130k is twice the car this ever was, less noise, better mpg, very few repairs, nothing major like this thing.

Best Features

My wife loves the blue tooth, I don`t have to look at it much, normally at the dealer "not getting fixed".

Worst Features

A little quality would help, better bearings in the drive line, a few less rattles. Think they might last longer if you didn't service them. Doesn't help to change the fluids when the bearings are junk

you say you have the 6 cyl and then the v-8. This is why I can not trust any reviews as people do not list the options correctly.
