bought one because:

Overall rated #1 SUV and I feel the Cherokee is a little sharper looking and has a little more quality.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 — Very versatile for family and for loading stuff. Brakes are great and the car feels solid. The fit and finish is up to par and there are no cheap compromises. Everything works well and I've been very satisfied with the vehicle overall. it's my 4th Jeep!

Well Rounded Daily Use Vehicle — was impressed with how easily the jeep laredo goes through over 2 feet of snow without missing a beat. it does not have a four wheel drive button it's a "smart" system fuel averages about 17 mpg with a fair mix of high way and city roads.

Bullet - My 10th Grand Cherokee. — I love the car. This is my 10th personal Grand Cherokee and this is by far the best car I have ever owned. That includes my wife's Olds, Buicks and Cadillacs. The power, handling, ride, trailer pulling ability are superior. I pull a 7x12 utility trailer and MF-240 with bush-hog on a 16' car hauler. You hardly know either is behind you. The car is powerful and quite. I got a ticket on the way home from the dealership, 65 in a 45. I had no idea I was going that fast.

Economical Gas Mileage And Good Luxury. — Great sport utility, only sold it due to being 2wd. V6 is sufficient. Not winning any races but you do get much better gas mileage on freeway drives. Overland model has great features and luxury (panoramic roof, leather, navigation, etc.)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

For what you get the price of the GC is very good.  You can get it totally loaded up like with most vehicles and that will increase the cost substantially.  I you just need a 4x4 that is nicely equipped the Grand Cherokee is quite reasonable.

Cons

The stock radio is horrible.  I replaced it with an aftermarket within a few months.  Not so much the sound but the features and operation are bad.

New Jeeps Are Fantastic — Price Looks Style Features Ride Handling 4x4 All of the above make this vehicle a real winer. This is my first Jeep and I am loving it. I would buy another if I needed an SUV and 4x4 all in one.

Amazing Value — Feels like a luxury car but is strong enough to go anywhere in comfort. Best car i have owned bar none. why spend thousands more and have something with much less character like toyota and so far no issues at all

Just A Great Vehicle — Performance is good, and that includes HP. Brakes Torque. Interior is very compfortable and I have been on 12 hour trips and did not get tired sitting in seat, and ride is very comfortable. Gas mileage was pretty good at an average of 24 mpg on a 800 mile ride.

First New Car I've Bought — I love this car. It's the first new car I've bought, and after doing about 9months of research I settled on this one. The interior is great. It's very comfortable and feels well made. I love (as do my passengers) the heated rear seats. The in dash media center is great as well. I've put about 8GBs of music on it, and it's as simple as putting in a CD or USB thumb drive, and hitting the "copy" button. No more lugging CDs around for me! I've had no problems in the month I've had it so far. I commute to work every day, about 20mins city and 20mins freeway, and at last fill up, I was getting 23.3 MPG. That's actually better MPG than my old 1996 Acura would get. Slapped some Goodyear Wrangler tires and MB TKO wheels and went up to the Cascade mountains. Handled like a dream. The traction control barely even had to kick in and when it did, I still felt completely in control. Couldn't be happier! UPDATE! My check engine light came on and it coded out as a simple emissions leak. I have an appointment to get it taken care of next week. UPDATE TO THE UPDATE! I think it was just a loose gas cap. I tightened it back on, and after a few days the CEL went out. I cancelled the appointment and everything is running fine. Still loving this rig!
