Wouldnt Be So Bad If My Problems Was Fixed — I like everything about it except what i have to get fixed so early and wasnt expecting it to be just 2 wheel drive but apparently the private owner before me basically new it was my first car and fail to mention other problems other than the wheel bearing but overall if i had the money to invest it wouldnt be an bad car

The Kind Of Luxury That Makes Things Complicated And Prone To Failure. — Jeeps are supposed to be sturdy, reliable, work on any terrain, but it's not quite the case with the Grand Cherokee, it's made complicated so things are prone to failure, I don't understand how can the engineers make a car that stalls when turning right. :S

Jeep 4wd — It is awesome in the snow and has great power motor wise. I also like that it gets me from pot A to point B. It is very reliable and never has left me standed anywhere. So, it was a great buy!

I Need A New Jeep — I like how cheap it was and how many miles I've gotten so far. Probably could use another 60,000 miles out of it considering all the work I've put into it. Maybe another 75,000 would do. A lot of issues I have with it everyone else has had with theirs.

F&c — We have had this Jeep in the family since 2001, and before that it was a lease vehicle. Locally owned, our family as enjoyed its function, power, ability to traverse snowy grounds, sand, and more over the years. Fun car which we have enjoyed, and continue to. The V8 is silky smooth, and has power to spare - torque. Pulls a full sized boat up Cuesta Grade at 75mph w/o blinking. Amazing! The full time 4x4 allows for extra traction on wet road trips and on our ventures to the Sierra Nevada's on snowy trips - our Jeep made this a joy. The blacked out privacy glass, also OEM, and cover in th rare makes for a clean look and privacy in hauling items. One thing we always apprecited in this vehicle was the ability of the rear seats to lay down, making a perfectly flat (flat) surface in the rear of the Jeep. Quite the hauler. Quiet fun. Quite nice! Great SUV!

My Favorite Car — I've loved driving my truck. This is by far my favorite car. Sorry to see it go. This Jeep will get you through anything. The interior is roomy and comfortable. The power under the hood is amazing. I have no doubt it will go another 150K!

Great Sport Look — I love the heated leather seats with climate control. Great rear seats that fold down for cargo space with a wide opening hatch to fit the biggest items you would ever want to haul back to the house. Four wheel drive comes in handy.

Fantastic! — I have no problem driving here in New England during or after snow storms. This SUV handles great, easily passing cars with front wheel drive stalled on the Hwy trying to go up a hill during snow storms. 245K miles to date (purchased used with 35K miles), mostly Hwy. Just replaced the brakes for the third time........yes third time. The interior an exteria are still in very good shape / no rust / one small tear in drivers side leather seat. If this engine was to finally go today I'd consider replacing the motor and stay with this SUV.

Fun Suv To Own And Drive — My kids love the Jeep and I miss driving it! We have Ipod/Iphone hook up on the stereo! Great sound. The V8 is a must in a Jeep. She has seen a lot of snow and has yet to get stuck. My hubby uses it as a daily driver and he loves that it gets out of the way of other vehicles. We've used it to pull up old hedges/bushes that housed bugs and bees. We tied a logging chain to the tow hitch and the bushes and pulled them out of the ground with out fail! That was fun. We've driven her up the entire east coast in snow, sleet and rain. From Bangor Maine to Miami Florida and in between. If the Jeep had a 3rd row, Oh my god, that would be the ultimate! Acceleration is great in the Jeep. Never hesitates to eat the road. Great for old and young drivers. Having the tow hitch is a great feature for bike racks. I can't say enough good things about my Jeep. When we first got the Jeep, it failed inspection because the battery wasn't adequate. We replaced it for a heavy duty battery that we've had in for years now with no issue. We had to replace the blend doors for heat and ac. Got a deal for $800 when it would have cost $1200. Have to replace the tweeters every 2 years or so and the factory front speakers unless you get a non factory speaker fyi. Great vehicle.
