Pros

Very powerful, can pull anything. I am very impressed with all the amenities and the ease of use. Comfortable to drive, even on long trips. Quiet ride, smooth shifts and there always seems to be more power if you need it.

Cons

Sound system could be stronger

Great Suv — This car was a wonderful ride. I used it mostly for work and have no major issues with this vehicle. The inside is comfortable and made road trips with the family fun. Outside noise was kept to minimum and the vehicle as front and side impact airbags.

A Great Suv — This has been a great vehicle. I haven't had any mechanical issues since I've owned it. It has great features and the design of the vehicle was thought out very well. I would recommend that anyone buy the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Pros

Very good in snow/ice/offroad

Cons

Almost everything else. Abysmal fuel economy, build quality is awful (after 45,000 miles had to replace multiple engine components), interior is very loud, very heavy, roof leaked, sunroof rattled.....i could go on for hours.

How Bad Could It Be? Very Bad. — Definitely a car I regret buying. There were multiple things going wrong with this car with only 45,000 miles on it, so much so that I decided I had to get rid of it before even more expensive repairs came up. With only 45,000 miles on it the ignition coil broke, the air bag sensors continuously went off (warning sensors), water was leaking through the handle on the a-pillar, the moonroof constantly rattled, the glovebox didn't close properly, one of the alloy wheels had begun to flake, the paint on the hood was bubbling(!), I could go on and on and on about what broke on this car. Aside from the mechanical defects the interior was very loud, and the fuel economy was awful, averaging only 16.5 mpg. If there is a silver lining in this car it is that it was great in the snow/ice, and the Boston Acoustics speakers were very nice. That's about the only good things I can think of. I bought this car instead of a Highlander/Pilot/CX9 thinking "how bad could it be?". Don't make the same mistake I did.

My Most Favorite Car Yet — This Jeep is geared low, so it has excellent acceleration. It handles very well and feels safe while driving. The cabin is quiet and has smooth ride. The seat is comfortable and adjustable, so the Jeep fits like a glove. Very dependable vehicle, just standard maintenance.

Pros

This car roars at any speed.  It turns heads.  It screams off the line and will dust just about anything,  Looks like a million dollars.

Cons

Gas mileage is the only issue but you go in knowing that.

The Jeep You Take To The Track — The first time I saw this vehicle I fell in love with it. Pure power and fun. I have owned a BMW, Range Rover, Mercedes and four Porsches. More people walked up to me to talk about this vehicle than all of the others combined.

Pros

This is the 2nd Jeep that I've owned.  I'm a huge Jeep fan and hate to part with this one.  But it's time to move on to a bigger SUV.  I Love the looks of this Jeep inside and out.  It has a spacious interior (seating for 5), plenty of room to haul in the cargo area, not a gas guzzler like some of the "other" SUV's.  I won't mention any names.  :)

Cons

I can't think of any Cons.  This jeep is a pleasure to drive.

Excellent Condition — The Red Rock exterior color and charcoal cloth interior are very sharp looking, super clean and very well taken care of. And with 4WD she get's around great in ALL weather. Sunshine, rain or snow.......she will get you there.

This Vehicle Meets All My Needs. Whether Traveling, Transporting, Racing Or Just Cruising — I really, really enjoy driving this vehicle. No matter how fast I'm going she's always up for more speed. In the winter I don't ever worry about the roads because of the independant wheel slippage. a lot of fun to drive.

Great Car. — It is a great SUV to drive. Cherokee's performance is good, perhaps better than other SUVs. The brakes and handling are very good on the road, especially for so large SUV. The Cherokee is very nice car for off road driving.
