    Great All Around — Performance wise it depends on the motor you decide to go with the straight 6 aka 4.0 wise ideal for daily use 5.2 is good for power and offroad and towing 5.9 is offroad and also a great street jeep for speed Build wise its great needs some little things here and there but what car doesnt Apperance wise they have a interesting love it or hate it type of look but its all Jeep Cost Of Owner Ship depends on what you use it for Fun Factor Its A Jeep Need I Say More?

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun Comfortable Reliable

    Cons: If you offroad it prepare to be addicted

    97' Jeep Grand Cherakee Laredo 4x2 — was a very dependable vehicle, did not have 4-wheel drive but with some mud terrain tires & the 4.0 straight 6 motor this thing is unstoppable! only complaint would be the gas & the constant wear of breaks, other than that it ran like a champ!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: excellent storage and versatility

    Cons: gas mileage

    Cheap And It Works When You Need It To. — Great Car with a really solid engine that Jeep has been using for about 25 years. Not much of a fun car. I like to call it the uber conservative vehicle. It got pretty bad gas mileage until recently when I put in an oil additive that is supposed to help restore compression in older engines. It seems to have helped I went from high 16s on interstate to 18.2. And went from about 13.8 to 16.2ish around town.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The A/C works well.

    Cons: The fuel injectors...(means bad gas mileage)

    Great Car. — I love this car. It drives smooth, it's fairly quiet, it's the sharpest turning car I've ever seen, it's built very solid, I take it out and beat the crap out of it all the time and nothing seems to really hurt it, although the paint is quite scratched. It has great suspension and it sits a fair ways above the ground, the only thing sticking out from under it is the rear differential. It's got both driver and passenger side airbags, ABS, and a reinforced body so it's safer in rollovers. Great car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's fun and it's tough and it can hold a lot of cargo and pull a lot of weight.

    Cons: It smells funny, but that's just because the previous owner smoked.
