2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


the jeep has had some issues, but overall the fun and satisfaction of driving it has been far beyond my expectations. i bought my 05 5.7L HEMI with 24k, have 49k now, had electrical issues with ac and the knob on the gps fell off, both replaced under warranty. Battery died at 30k. Having electrical issues with lights flashing on and off, haven't had dealership look yet, only works in automatic without problems. keychains broke, cupholder in the back broke, passenger side heat vent broke, sunroof doesn't close right unless i push it along, and it still rolls back sometimes when closing, leather on drivers seat ripped. american car, i got what i paid for, gas guzzling power lo quality build

Best Features

the power of the hemi, roaring past slow traffic, the bouncy suspension, no more swerving around potholes in nyc, driving is so relaxing, bouncing around without a care. its just a pleasure to drive from a performance perspective, power, luxury, style, and the ability to handle any road anytime.

Worst Features

fuel economy, solve electrical issues as they seem common as per other reviews, build a sturdier rear cupholder. transmission sometimes hesitates, but when it kicks in, watch out, the truck moves. i never got more than 14k on the highway, but i got a heavy foot, and the truck is perfect for flooring
