2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is the WORST vehicle I have ever had. I've owned it for about a year, I'm on my third starter (it goes days without starting then is fine for a month or so), had to replace the timing belts, and have been in and out of repair shops. I know they look cool but don't let it fool you, they are the worst.

2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought mine from one owner used. Had just over 100000. Since January 2015-Oct 2015 have replaced the clock speed sensor, the starter, wheel bearing, now the transmission is starting to slip. Chrysler jacked up the jeep name. Used to be a dependable vehicle. Stay far away from this vehicle.

2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my GC Laredo 4.7L used. I had the service 4wd message in the dashboard and took it to the Jeep dealer. The GC had some weird noise in the transfer case area. It cost me $100.00 for a diagnostic to tell me that the transfer case was bad. An a quote of S3,500 for a remanufactured Chrysler NV245 transfer case because Chrysler does not make those junk transfer cases anymore. I went to a transmission shop and they installed a used one from the junk yard and couple weeks after the electric motor of the transfer case went bad. I complained to Chrysler about the transfer case and their response was that after 100,000 I am expected to replace the transfer case. I had 1997 Honda CRV with 297,000 plus miles without transfer case issues.

Review

Well, I have been a Jeep fan for a long time. Owned a Cherokee before, was a decent car. I knew the reliability reputation full well and bought this GC against my better judgement.
Let's say, I have paid.

Right after 4 years of very mild driving and not even 40K on odometer things started happening.

The speed sensor. $1000.
The starter. $800.
A pressure sensor leaking air. $90.
Today - another pressure sensor leaking air (the car will be 6 years old this August). $150. A $150 tire flat fix.

No more Chrysler products for me.

Update: three pressure sensors leaked with two of them having been replaced before. Two weeks ago I was about to add some air and when unscrewing the cap, the whole threaded part of the barrel broke off so I could not even inflate the tire and was driving with it underinflated untill the weekend when I replaced all 4 at Midas at half price of what the dealer charges.

Oh... did I mention the A/C compressor went in the beginning of September of the same year I wrote the initial review? After 6 years and 1 month?

Like I sad before....No. More. Chrysler. Period.

Update 12/2017 : 4 months after the last review, the driver's side window electric lift mechanism is gone: the cable got all chewed up, first making grinding noises and eventually barely moving, even refusing to close. Five month after it started, the mechanism was replaced as the block, $610 installed.

Review

I bought a used 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.5 years ago and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
It is a very comfortable vehicle, drives great... with the upgraded interior (leather, navi) a rather luxurious, smooth riding truck.


Its VERY reliable, too.
Currently I am at 75,000mi and other than normal maintenance (change the oil every 3,000 miles), I haven't had any problems what-so-ever.

Edit: Now up to 120,000 miles and the Jeep is running stronger than ever. Hoping to keep it around for another 120,000 miles. Best car I've ever owned!!!
