The problem with buying a used car is that you have no idea how well the previous owner treated the car. A car can run well for a long time if the it has been taken car of by its owners (proper maintenance, oil changes...) Generael consensus by Grand Cherokee drivers is that the brakes are an area of concern. It seems that many people have had to replace the brakes quite a few times so make sure to check those out before you purchase a Grand Cherokee. I drove a 99 Grand Cherokee until it had 160,000 miles on it so i can tell you from personal experience. I had to replace the transmission at 130,000 miles and the brakes had to be changed also. There were a few smaller problems with the vehicle but I can also tell you that I drove this car for 4 years and loved it. It can handle any weather thrown at it and the gas mileage wasn't terrible considering its an SUV.

I had a 1999 Grand Cherokee Limited V8. Air conditioning seemed to have difficulty keeping car cool in the summer. I agree about the brakes. Poor pedal feel and always seeming to need repair. Constant whine from rear axle. Never able to determine cause. Became very irritating on long drives. Never the less, great car for bad weather.

I have a grand Cherokee Laredo 4x2 with 177.000. Last year I went from Cartagena, Colombia all the way south to Santiago, Chile and back to Colombia. The Cherokee performed excellent but lately I have noticed that when i turn left it looses traction, I think is something with the differential but dont know exactly what. Any suggestions out there?

I have a 2005 Laredo that I purchased new. I drive a lot so I have 167300 miles on it now. Tires never seem to hold up as well as I would like but the only major thing I have none is rebuild the rear axle. I average about 30000 miles a year and the gas mileage is not that bad for a SUV. I am very curious to see how many miles it will go before it surrenders.
