"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!

Luxurious Hit-man — The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland is an amazing specimen that will easily devour a "luxury" competitor of similar breed with much less effort (and by effort I mean $$$). I just bought a used 2006 and am just as floored as the adjustable accelerator pedal should be in this vehicle. I will talk a lot about the power in this ride but its ride and appointments can't be overshadowed. I have read poor reviews on handling. I pushed the limits of speed's favorite initial and the Overland handled more than adequately in the curve-carving department. The HEMI doesn't need a comment because it really does speak for it self. My buddy has a Dodge Durango with the same engine and it growls louder under his hood. While the roar is satisfying, I believe Jeep has simply improved cabin insulation. I hold this opinion as my wife complained that I shouldn't speed out of our driveway. I don't speed; (in our neighborhood anyway) the low gears of this rig will turn the domes of any spectators, willing or otherwise. I just realized I must sound like I work for Jeep or its ownership. I assure you I do not. I am just a happy consumer that is 34 years old and has been frugal in all of his vehicle purchases. The best part is I purchased this Jeep used and a bag filled with depreciation is gone. Depreciation is why you shouldn't buy new. Duh, everyone knows that but the majority of the U.S. buys new, go figure (own more than you show I say!). The Overland is amazing. I won't list features; Google has all your answers. Lastly, my wife has a powerful Infinity SUV, my good friend a Yukon Denali. Both individuals have ridden in my Jeep and wished it was theirs. By the way, my buddy with the rig named after an Alaskan park spent almost twice what I just spent on the JGC Overland. To answer your unanswered question, I spent lees than $30k. Ha, maybe I should work for Jeep. Safe travels.

Awesome Ride — Great ride, great interior layout. Quite, reliable. Good looks, firm and supportive seats. V6 power is enough for most uses. Laredo has many standard features and great price!

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.

You Can't Beat A Jeep Grand Cherokee For The Money. — Jeep Grand Cherokees may have small problems every now and then but you can't beat their style, performance and off road ability for the money. The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee provides the right amount of interior room for 2 or 3 people. It is the perfect size for weekend trips, off road fly fishing destinations, pet transportation and kayak hauling. At the same time it is not to big to fit in small parking spaces. As far as I'm concerned why would anyone buy anything else?

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 removable back seats, power everything, cruise control, and steeling wheel controls for cruising and radio were a plus.

Cons

Don't have a negative for the Jeep

Nice Suv — Enjoyed this jeep when I had it. There was a recall on it for the breaks which was repaired. I never had a break problem with it before the recall was mentioned to me. This Jeep drives nice, its comfortable, no blind spots, roomie, and fast. The removable back seats, power everything, cruise control, and steeling wheel controls for cruising and radio were a plus.

Cons

too fast? Front end is a little low to the ground.

Fast Jeep — 425hp. faster than Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Factory 20inch wheels. No room for spare so makes it a difficult decision to go to 22's and not using the run flat tires. I avg 12mpg. Very fun to drive. A lot nicer than my 99 Jeep. Love the automatic wipers.

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.
