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.

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.

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.

Pros

like the drivability in snow and ice when it starts it reliable and runs very smooth at 79000 miles it still has a smooth ride but i have only had it for the last 10000 miles i live in lincoln montana elev of 5600 ft  so it gets cold heater works great and no major repairs as of yet

Cons

it can get hard to see out of side windows as it seems to have several blind spotswhen passing or changing lanes so i am very careful and sometimes it can be diffucult to hold on the road if strong winds which are inherent to montana and i would never recommend pulling more than a 20ft trailer at any weight pass seats in rear must be made for very small people 2 adults in backseat is very tight

Good Quality Good Ride ?fuel Milage — i like it because i am just one but i realize now that i cant move things like furniture because of space restrictions and i live 150 miles from stores i have hopes of getting starting problem fixed soon but i must figure it out myself as who can afford jeep dealer prices? but basically i think it is a good vehicle as a whole just dont over estimate the size of the interior if you have children

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee (wk) Limited 4wd — The WK series Grand Cherokee is an overall good SUV but the 4.7L is very very thirsty... (I imagine the 5.7L as well). Power is sufficient although a little more wouldn't hurt. Ride is comfortable but not as roomy as I expected, especially if you have the sunroof which lowers the overall headroom by another inch-inch and a half.

Beautiful — overall I have little to no complaints... especially working for Jeep Chrysler Dodge for 12+ years. The overall vehicle is solid, will nearing 100k on it, I think it will be like my last personal Grand and hit the 300 mark on the odometer.
