A Beautiful Mess. — The jeep grand Cherokee in my eyes is the perfect mix of luxury and rugged fun. What makes this Jeep special is that is the last of the ZJ model and also one of the last Jeep models to stick to its roots by using the straight 6 4.0 engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love that I can always depend on this jeep for anything.  Always gets from point A to point B

Cons: Sometimes it will decide to run like a champ other times it might want to act tired.  It is top heavy and is terrible on gas.

Reliable Family Car — I like the fact that it had 4 wheel drive when you need it and not always engaged like some of the newer vehicles. It also has a part time mode for when it's a little slick out with rain or snow

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is a good functional everyday vehicle. It is also good for long trips and light off road

Cons: the gas mileage could be better but it's not terrible

Buaty And The Beast — I do love this jeep it has been a good friend for the past 13 years...weve had our moments of joy and dissapointment, but i would do it all over again. The syling is very very good and 4 wheel drive solid. trany is a bit of disappointment but still a value for time owned and now it was rebuild its life will be extended at least another 10 years.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very nice looking vehicle. good in snow. sound system good. engine like a bullet solid and dependable

Cons: transmission oly made it 110k before needing replacing and front differential only 120k

Jeep Luxury + Jeep Performance = Awesome —

These things are ROCK SOLID, with tons of room for upgrades. Extremely comfortable. From the stock 150 AMP alternator, to the Infinity speaker system, to the heated leather seats, you will fall in love with every aspect of this Jeep. They have a new Jeep commercial, showing how even despite the weather you will be the one who still makes it to work. Living in Maine, I can tell you this is the honest truth for any year Jeep with 4WD. And this Jeep has AWD. Owning a vehicle like this and expecting good MPG is like eating McDonalds 5 days a week and expecting to lose weight. There is a song by Lonestar called "What About Now" and he refers to "The last dinosaur that Detroit made". This is the 98 Jeep GC Limited. The only weak point is the original Quadra-Trac transfer case. It doesn't have a huge flaw that would make anyone stray, but part of it will wear out eventually which causes a minor issue when making extremely HARD TIGHT low speed turns, like in a parking lot. This Jeep turns heads as it is, and garners respect and enthusiasm by any passenger. With some upgrades (which I have done almost everything except lift it) this thing will get people talking to you at every gas station, even pulled over by police who just want a peak under the hood. If you ever get a chance to snag one of these up in mint condition, and don't care about MPG and want a real SUV (not a SMV, Soccer Mom Vehicle), pick one up. Or any of the other many Jeeps out there, the original and best SUV.

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

Pros: Luxury, Power, Style, Upgrades, Comfort

Cons: Fuel Economy

If You Got The Money It's The Bawls — I love this thing!!! Purrs like a kitten and is an extremely comfortable ride. If it were better on gas I would keep it forever hands down. This thing has some strength to it too when you press that gas it pushes you back into the seat!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love it, luxury, nice looking jeep

Cons: fuel economy

Betsy — She does not get the best gas milage or is she the quickest vehicle out there, but she's comfortable and reliable. She's got about 150k miles and is still going strong. Great truck to have for camping and fishing, and handles the snow better then any vehicle i've ever had previously.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfortable, excellent turning radius, great in the snow

Cons: bad gas milage, slow

I Love It — Its fun to drive, I always feel safe and its perfect for every situation. It was built solid, its very comfortable and it has just about every extra you could want from heated seats, to a pre determined gas gauge telling me how far I can go with what gas I have and how fast I'm going. The only things I don't have is a tv and a sunroof. My plan is to rebuild it though so maybe it will eventually.. =)

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

Pros: It's been through everything and starts everytime, ill never get rid of it

Cons: I need to do a little body work thanks to Luke lol
