Good First Car — It is not the easiest to see out of. Rugged, has taken the 1st car bumps and bruises well. The ride is good and it is bigger than other SUV's. Power is good. Allows you to on and off the interstate without worry.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Love My Jeep — This jeep is a good family car and great for long distance traveling. The car is great but sometimes is bipolar, but overall not a bad car. I would recommend this car for a family of four because everyone has their own door to get in and out of.

Good Al Lround Family Wheels — Much better than the older model. Handles well. the V8 has loads of grunt. The first left hand drive I have ever had. The drivers door tends to bug my left knee a bit & the large transmission tunnel intrudes on the drivers floor space

Pros

The car had plenty of power, and it was roomy. Great to drive in the mountains.

Cons

Terrible fuel economy, blind spots galore, and it handled like a rowboat in a storm.

Gas Hog — I bought this car new. My wife has always wanted a Jeep, so I got her this one. Didn't take long for her to change her mind, as soon as she realized how much it cost to drive, ie: fuel. The Jeep was good on trips, and I absolutely loved driving it in the mountains. I set the cruise and the Jeep would keep the speed within 5 mph of the setting wether I was giong up a hill or coming down. One excellent feature.

Pros

I love this OVERLAND Edition... a 5.7 liter HEMI paired to rear wheel drive cuts down on weight and additional systems that would slow down this beast.  Build for Street Speed... no off roading here!   Every conceivable option included: power everything, Sat/NAV/rear DVD systems with remote control and in-seat connections, rear parking sensors, in-dash vehicle monitoring, enhanced exterior styling and trim, leather seats with suede inserts... list goes on and on.  

Cons

Typical Jeep issues for the model year... strange transmission gear ratios, exhaust manifold leaks, and poor gas mileage - but that is to be expected with the 5.7L HEMI

Limited Edition And Rare Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition — Don't get me wrong... it's still an American made SUV with typical quality issues but nothing I feel worth complaining about. The OVERLAND Edition enhanced trim level got some help from me with oversized black steel rims and tires, tinted windows and wheel rain guards. Other small modifications have improved gas mileage and boosted performance. Resonator has been removed from exhaust system and a MagnaFlow glasspack muffler makes for a perfect street roar. Truck sticks to road better than any Corvette I've owned with oversized front and rear sway bars and the Bilstein shocks and struts provide the perfect height and aggressive stance. Adding wider tires provides stability and stance. Cross drilled rotors and high performance brake pads provide powerful braking ability. The OVERLAND edition combined with my upgrades makes this a unique vehicle. I love to drive it.

"its A Jeep Girl Thing...you Wouldn't Understand" — The 4x4, manual shift option, fold flat rear seats, multiple cup holders, tow hooks, heated seats and sun rooof are all awesome and I can't live without. The poor fuel economy stinks with the rising gas prices!

Lekjfa — so this is a friend of mine's first car, which i stole for a joyride, along with his girlfriend, who happened to be in shotgun. its the 5.7L hemi model, and it has sounds somewhat evil under heavy acceleration, then, once you get to a fuel pump, it is evil, as it requires medium grade fuel, which it then chuggs down faster then an alcoholic with a bottle of wine cooler....

Great in the snow and perfect size for family.

Cons

No power, terrible fuel consumption

Nice, But Too Expensive To Own. — This was a gorgeous car. Perfect size for my family. It got terrible gas mileage like 16 mpg. It could hardly get out of its own way. Had no balls. It cost me like $75 a week to get to work 12 miles away. Not worth it.
