Good — Car is reliable but may have minor or major damage mechanically with time and wear my car has around 110,000 miles some problems include the radiator fan relay, radiator expanding, cruise control not working, brake vacuum, delayed shifting and no a working A/C in dash vents. There is very little feel in the steering and suspension does not take mid sized bumps well. Some things that are good is the front seat comfort and the power seats, the engine will not fail mo matter what you throw at it, the gas mileage in the I6 engine is decent I average around 18 MPG which is good compared to my other car which averages 12 MPG, you can tow around 3,500 lbs with the 6 cylinder and can haul a lot inside with the back seats down, they fold down to make a flat floor, the frame and body are very sturdy it has been in several hail storms and accidents with its previous owner, good price would be around 6 thousand for a very good condition car or 3 to 4.5 thousand dollars for a decent running vehicle, the interior is overall good very few knobs on the dash, but it is comfortable roomy and not to plasticy.

Far From Perfect, But I Love It. — I drove this car back to a dealership to help out a collegue who borrowed it for a week-end. I immediately fell in love with the 2.7L 5-cilinder Mercedes Benz turbodiesel powerplant under the bonnet. It's lowdown grunty roar sounds very good (for a diesel, 5-cilinder petrol engines sound even better). It has a lot of character, but also power and couple. It had no difficulty to move this tractor around town (yes, the preferred habitat of the SUV) at inspiring speeds. The automatic gearbox goes very well together with the engine. The seats are a bit too wide for an average European (1m80, 75kg), and with the all leather interior, you feel lucky the car doesn't corner that fast that you start sliding from one end to another in the driver's seat. The ride is comfortable, although you feel this car was originally designed to be robust and conquer any kind of road (even non-existing ones),... except for paved roads. It's far from perfect, but I love it anyway.

Pros

Car is super reliable and can handle almost anything you throw at it

Cons

For the size of the truck it can drink a bit much but the power makes up for that

Tank For The Masses — I have had this truck for over 4 Years and can't really say anything wrong with it, the truck has never let me down. I am actually looking at getting a newer model just because I want some more creature features

Pros

Off road capability

Cons

a little outdated

Great Vehicle For Winter Or Off Road Use — Decent exceleration with the V-8. Nice interior. Tight turning radius. Very good off road performance. The ride is pretty good for a vehicle with solid front and rear axcles. minimul body lean during cornering. This vehicle is rugged enough to go anywhere and still look good enough for a night on the town.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Can run over curbs with ease.

Cons

Lots of maintenance costs.

Do Not Buy Unless You Have To Drive Over Tree Trunks To Get To Your House. — Terrible fuel economy, 400-500km per tank or 18L/100km, too much play in the steering wheel, bad throttle response, bad acceleration. The car has good features, quadra-drive, power everything, and not bad speakers too. Not one of my favourites.....

Pros

The engine is sexy, the car is real comfortable

Cons

I would Avoid this car if you dont want to put alot of gas into this sucker.

75

If Gas Isnt A Problem Go For This Car Its Really Nice — This was my first vehicle it was a great car, i loved the way it drove, it was so much fun to drive, i paid about 10 grand for this car, I would have kept it if the vehicle didnt take so much gas to fill the tank, and the fact that the v8 engine and constant 4 wheel drive wasnt god for my gas budget haha. also the fact that my breaks were bad,the wheels where rusted and coroded, and my heater died didnt help me wanna keep the car but other than that I liked the car.

Sweeeeeeeet — I love my Jeep. Its got 300hp and still gets about 16 miles to the gallon. Its not to much to maintain either. I love driving it on the interstate cause is so comfortable. I would suggest it to my friends.
