2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


It takes a special sort of person to drive a Jeep. If you drive it like a Toyota, you will probably hate it. If you have had Jeeps previously, you know the "when the weather gets ca-ca you pull your select/command trac lever". Not so in this. First time that all time 4WD is at the base model. *Even though the machine delivers top notch treacherous road handling ability, you will forget that its an all time, all wheel drive vehicle and still reach for the lever.* Electronic Gas Pedal is very fickle!It gets confused going up/dwn rolling hills, almost as if it doesnt know if its going up or down the hill, same thing when accelerating at speeds 25-40 mph, I.E. getting on highways from onramps.

Best Features

All time 4WD, Suspension ~ keeps the stiff Jeepiness feel. (2) troughs on the hood, (7) spokes on the grill... Less rear transfer case slap, but still there

Worst Features

Traction indicator on the dash (maybe a green color like the fog lamp light)to let me know when the 4WD is taking over. The NOT fly by wire, aka Elec. Gas Ped is the #1 complaint in all the posts, that's why you get no power if you gun it on on onramps or when "kind of" accelerating on mild hills
