Ive Enjoyed Owning It Would Buy Another One — I bought this jeep as a one owner at a great price. Ive had no issues or trouble with it. I wish it was alittle better on gas but it is an awd suv. which makes it awesome in the snow. don't have a problem in any snow what so ever. I also wish it had selectable 4 wd not just 4 high or 4 low. would recommend to a friend

It's A Jeep...and That Says It All ! — It has some driver blind spots. It's a JEEP...and that says it all ! Love my Jeep. Had some problems right away when we bought it. Had to rebuild the rear differential and fix the cruise control wiring. Now it has the famous "Service 4 Wheel Drive System" message but not worrying about fixing that. It pulls my 24' boat like nothing and never downshits going up hills. Get's great mpg. 19 on freeway and 21 at 60 mph. Hemi is the way to go.

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

Pros

This vehicle is so much more comfortable than my mustang, and has tons of space for luggage.

Cons

Maybe gas mileage? We use it for errands and family trips though, so fill ups are not to frequent

Off Road Family Vehicle — I really like the rugged looks of this vehicle, and adding a roof rack really ups the style as well as cargo capacity. This vehicle handles really well off road, and smooth sailing on the city streets. I really enjoy driving this SUV.

Pros

Reliable, versatile SUV, strong towing capacity, spacious cargo room & roof rack, plenty of power, great braking, safe all weather handling, off road & climbing capability

Cons

If I have to put something I guess I would site the fuel economy however it's actually better then most SUV's averaging around 18mpg and the benefits of a V8 make it well worth the cost

All Around Reliable Suv Able To Deliver On All Occasions — We've enjoyed all aspects of this vehicle to suit out family's needs. Being able to tow various boats, carry canoes or a storage box on our roof rack for trips has made our outdoor life more manageable. Going off road or traveling during snow storms has never stopped us knowing we have reliable and safe transportation. We'll buy another Jeep based on our satisfaction with this one and it'll surely impress it's new owner.

One Of The Best Kept Secrets In Suvs. Hell, Jeep Wrote The Book On Suvs. — I found this Jeep to be the best mix of style, power and comfort. He goes anywhere I point him and tows more than most "trucks" they sell these days! The iconic Jeep name is not lacking for support from this legend.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

HEMI! Good towing, and space.

All wheel drive. I'd rather have it selectable. The motor ticks (the infamous hemi tick)

Overall A Great Family Car, Good Looks, Good Power — We love our jeep. We have had the vehicle for 2 years, and have no complaints, besides the gas mileage, which isn't too bad for a 6000lb vehicle with a big motor. Gets our family of 4+ one dog where we need to go.

Feels Like An Old Time Luxury Sedan — I have a love/hate relationship with my Jeep. The 5.7L gives it effortless power, but the single digit fuel economy around town is getting old. It's great in snow and has good cargo capacity. If our kids were bigger, the low second row seat would be a problem, but since they are in car seats, it's not an issue. Past 5 years, the reliability has been an issue with major repairs coming up frequently (starter, wireless control module, transmission computer, etc.)

Great Jeep! 126k Miles And Still Going And Going And Going — I purchased this Jeep brand new in 2005 and I have been very satisfied with this Jeep since. I have put 126K miles on it with minimal issues. Would definitely buy another Jeep Grand Cherokee in the future. Great car for those looking!
