2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Leased 06 Grand Cherokee with 3.7L V6 engine and auto transmission. First 30 days spent back at the dealer to fix these issues: Leakage through left A-pillar, turned out to be windshield seal; engine light on, fixed once, came on again 3 days later, fixed one more time; extremely unpleasant rattle on left side of IP, dealer tried to fix it twice, it got better, but once in a while you'd steal hear it. Gas mileage averaged 16 mpg mostly city driving. Positive features: loved during winter time, great on snow, much quieter interior, good driving dynamics, good power. Glad it was a lease, just turned it in and walked away from the dealer.


Best Features

Driving in snow, quiet ride. Good overall driving dynamics. Comfortable once you get adjusted to hard seats.


Worst Features

MPG must be improved. Best I ever got over 2 year period was 21.5 mpg on hwy from Detroit to Chicago. Quality needs to improve. After 2 years seats exhibited slight movement on takeoff - not good. Not as roomy as some competition and smaller cross overs.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

They are not breaking any stereotypes about American cars with this Jeep. I really wanted to buy American and it seemed at first that Jeep gave you so many more options for the money compared to other brands. But the number of items big and small to break down in the first months of ownership is remarkable. From the ignition to the door on the thing that holds you sun glasses, almost nothing is too sacred for a trip of two to the shop. At the shop these problems are so common I hardly get a surprised look. I read in their propaganda that they are taking a hard look at improving the fit and finish. That would be a good start. We do drive ours off-road, and it is a lot of fun.


Best Features

off-road ability, hemi acceleration


Worst Features

Take a minute to double check the work and be sure all the bolts and screws are tight. I've never seen so many fundamental things fail in a car before.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned several Jeep Cherokees and was displeased when the new body type came out. My two big complaints: the lousy gas mileage and the low headroom for driver and passenger. We have spent 18 months trying to move the seat and headrest every which way, but it is very difficult to get into the front seats without hitting your head on the top of the car or door frame. Otherwise, a great car with lots of power, lots of features and a pretty good price compared to the competition.


Best Features

cargo capacity


Worst Features

higher roof, so you have more headroom.

Review

I've only had mine for a couple weeks but already it's the best 22 grand I've spent. The fuel economy is not the best but the way it drives and runs is fantastic. I highly suggest it to anybody that's in the market to get one.


Best Features

Everything the interior is comfortable the engine is mean and body is sleek and pimp


Worst Features

Better fuel economy especially with fuel prices nowadays

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The vehicle is real safe. That is its best feature. I will not buy another jeep as the quality it very poor. The first problem was with the blower motor, hardly puts out any air at a low speed. I had transmission leaks that took three trips to the dealer to fix. A transmission switch went bad in the console and had to be fixed. Most recent the vehicle would not move. The traction system went crazy and made the vehicle stop. I had to shut off the traction light to get the vehicle to move. For the price of the vehicle and the problems I have had, I feel very disappointed with this jeep. I have been looking at GM products again. Looking to get rid of the jeep.


Best Features

Traction control is great in winter driving.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, the jeep gets the same mileage as mile 1995 s-10 blazer. The blazer also had a low range, which is nice if one gets into mud. Really shop around and compare before you buy a jeep.
