Pros

My Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo has 157k and I only had to replace the steering box,1 cv joint and 1 u-joint It runs and looks great. The steering is tight and the 4.7 V8 runs like new. It's a Laredo that came stock with V8, leather, sunroof and everything the Grand Cherokee Limited comes with plus the tow package with the power steering cooler.

Cons

Not much to complain about with this Jeep but the gas millage.

I Love Myjeep Grand Cherokee Laredo With The Powerful 4.7 V8 Has The Power To Pull. I Would Buy Anot — I haven't had any serious problems with this Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I just change the fluids when needed plus I've been using Royal Purple since I've owned it in 2006. I would buy another one with the V8 only the Hemi this time.

Pros

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.....

gas guzzlers

Is What It Is For An Suv- Classy — V8 supercharged (HighOutput ) Model with a 4.7. It hauls when you gun it, but has more torque than it needs and is a gaz guzzler. With an excellent power package and luxurious leather seats, this comfortable ride seems to have it all

Cons

Radiator fan relay, handling, simple dash

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.

Pros

Luxo-barge. Motorway and town driving is a dream

Cons

Fuel and parts cost a bomb

35

It's Just Totally P.i.m.p. Y'all — Pretty quick for its size, will keep up with the hot hatch brigade. ~260bhp on tap and oodles of torque. Built quite well too, no creaking or rattles. interior styling i typically American - big knobs, green LED displays, tape deck, 10 disc changer. Awesome leather seats with loads of buttons & heating. I get around 16 mpg, but am running LPG. The LPG cost me £1200 & is half the price of petrol. Tyres have just cost me ~£470 for all 4 - good make/spec. V8 rumble is kick ass, auto box is very smooth and kick down is good too. It even corners better than I thought!

Good First Car. — Here's what I've experienced: the brakes jerk, sometimes the traction on my tires goes out, and I blew out the stereo. Oops.

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

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
