2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My wife and I bought this Jeep due to the great service from our 96 Cherokee. We could not be happier. The style is great, the interior and function extremely well thought out, and it is very comfortable and safe to drive. The room is generous and the performance with the 4.7 V-8 is incredible. The ride is excellent, brakes and handling very impressive. It is also a perfect size--fits nicely in our 2-car garage with another car with room to walk. This is a fine and durable vehicle to serves us as we move into our 60's with grace and verve!


Best Features

style, build quality, performance, well thought out design, safety.


Worst Features

I have none at this time.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Bought a JGC Overland with 5.7 HEMI. What a nice car! Very quiet yet engine is strong when it needs to be. I was considering to buy a Range Rover Sport, but JGC has definitely nicer ride and navigation system with hard drive to rip your songs. If you are considering JGC, try to get the HID headlight because they are really bright.


Best Features

1. HEMI - one of the best engines around 2. Navi System - fast, accurate and voice controlled 3. QuadraDrive II - goes through pretty much any condition out there. Be sure that your Jeep is trail rated too.


Worst Features

1. no audio control (not much) on steering wheel (like vol down/up) 2. rearview camera without the guide lines? (and the image is not as sharp as other competing vehicles) 3. legroom for the rear 4. fuel economy (or smallish gas tank)

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased this vehicle 1 year ago and have had no major problems. Information system is excellent. The hard drive option is excellent for music, I have 1600 songs saved. I've averaged around 16-17 mpg in the city and 18-21MPG on hwy for the 4.7L V8. Bluetooth for the phone is excellent, heated seats front and rear are great. Only option I don't have is rear DVD player. Only issue is sometimes the navigation/radio will freeze up. Shutting the car off and back on solves the problem. I can count on 1 hand how many times its happened, and I've driven it 22,000 miles. Steering wheel radio controls are great and rear view camera helps immensely in parking. Great in towing & snow. No maintenance


Best Features

Touch screen Navigation/information center, rear view parking camera, towing ability, rear outlet/plug for charging computer


Worst Features

More compartments in rear for storage, refine screens and playing options for hard drive music, better gas mileage.

Review

OK, I went to get my lease '08 Jeep and have regretted ditching my BMW every since. Soon after I picked up my overland the sealant on the quarter glass window started melting, took numerous calls to Leith Headquarters and Chrysler headquarters until they finally agreed to fix my Jeep. On top of that the electronic items in the car fail at any given time - including auto headlights!!! Still after all this time it malfunctions at any given time, stalls on the road while driving, speakers stop working, hard drive crashes and stalls, wipes out info stored in it, the list is endless as to what malfunctions on this Jeep!


Best Features

None because nothing ever works correctly on it!


Worst Features

Improve customer relations and speedier service to repair NEW cars! I waited 2 months just for parts to arrive to fix my Jeep! Improve the HDD so that it doesn't crash, stall or wipe out your data stored, be able to use playlists, ipod intergration kits! Not available AT ALL with this car with nav

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 4dr SUV 4WD (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I just traded in my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 for a 2008. Wow they made a lot of improvements for 2008. The engine and performance is astonishing. The ride quality is pretty darn good and the over all quality is great... I had almost zero issues with my 2007. If you like speed, and want the utility of an SUV this is the one for you!


Best Features

Power, Engine, Utility, Uconnect Stereo/Video/Sirius/Backseat TV


Worst Features

None.
