2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 4dr SUV 4WD (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


See my earlier review here, still a fun vehicle but has its problems. Still very fast and have caught a few very quick cars off guard. Transmission planetary spacer destroyed itself from the factory install resulting in damaged transmission and torque converter. Dealer service spotty at best. Took 2 tries to finally find a Jeep dealer that allowed for confidence, Century in Mt Airy MD. Brakes wear fast and replacements are 3 times that of a typical brake job. Parts for rotors and brakes alone online are $650. replacement brakes are better than the stock units, less dust and squeal. Interior very plasticky in its build it will grow on you. Several Electrical Tech service bulletins

Best Features

Fast, unique look, overall feel

Worst Features

Test, and retest, trans reliability is abysmal, see the SRT forums for failures. Dealership treatment is horrid. Coming from an Escalade I expected a bit of a decrease but not what I received, it's still a flagship vehicle, treat it like one. Attention to detail during assembly thats all we ask.
