1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4WDReview

Great Suv — Very Fast and Loud.0-60 time of 6.5 seconds. biggest draw back is the MPG which is 10 in city. on highway its about 17-18. Flooring it drops it to about 4 mpg. 6" lift on it makes it very off road capable. Nice big leather seats and sunroof. Black interior sucks for Utah. Has 190,000 miles and works pretty good. needs transmission work soon to fix the occasional hard shifts under full power.

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

Pros: Fast and Loud

Cons: Gas Guzzler

Great For The Winter, Like A Tank, Awesome Cruiser And Sporty For The Summer, Great Suv... — well the only thing to dislike is the 12.3 average mpg i get, but on the other hand what i love is sitting in front of Aamco on columbia turnpike and having a new ford mustand come along side me and rev his engine so we go from the light to the light in front of k-mart and i kick his butt...lol

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great power and good look for an suv with lots of room and comfort.

Cons: if you need mpg's, go somewhere else.

I'd Get 4wd Next Time And A V8 — It's performance is less than acceptable. The acceleration is less than desirable, but I am surprised with it's braking abilitly. That is pretty good. It handles alright, not great but pretty good for a top heavy SUV. It's a pretty tough car especially for a two wheel drive. As far as appearances go it's tanklike. Gas mileage is terrible.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a Jeep...nuf said.

Cons: It's a Jeep

Has Met All Of My Expectations For Over 12 Years. — A 4" lift kit w/ BFG's makes this a comfortable yet nearly unstoppable force for the road and very fun offroad with only stock drivetrain, chassis, and undercarrage protection. This vehicle has served as primary family transportation for 12+ years while also offering offroad thrills.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Torque at a moments notice, comfortable highway ride, never stuck through 24" snow and while

Cons: Thirsty for the good stuff -13 mpg combined on premium.  Soft stock brakes.

Excellently Built... Pretty Much Bulletproof — I have the funds to upgrade this vehicle however I would be stupid to. This thing is A TANK, with decent towing, passing, hauling, and off roading power. I don't baby this car and yet it won't die. Leather, Sunroof, power, room, towing, and 4 wheel drive is all I need as of now, so why change it. I'm running this thing til it dies....

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Not expensive to own

Cons: If you need a pick-up truck?

Love The Zj —

This was my wife's car, though I got to drive it for work. The G.C. never let me down. Gas mileage was rotten (13, 14 in the city...it'd do 18-20 on the highway, though), but with the 318 V8 I really didn't care too much. Plenty of power for any situation...and it sounded great with the Flowmaster muffler. Handling was about what you'd expect out of an SUV...you're not going to go looking for any curvy roads to blast down. It never felt unsafe, though. I've always loved the styling of the 1st gen. Grand Cherokee. It's standing the test of time well, I believe. The interior was very nice...comfortable, soft leather seats with heat (I miss this a lot!), nice Infinity stereo, and the build quality was good. Only a few cheap trim pieces here and there. We never had to do much to the Jeep, but when we did, replacement parts were inexpensive. It was starting to get a little worn out by the time we got rid of it, but it never let us down and was fantastic in the snow. I miss this car very much. The only thing that could possibly top it is if I could find a relatively unabused 5.9 for sale somewhere...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice V8 power and sound, comfortable interior, reliable, inexpensive to repair

Cons: Poor gas mileage around town

If It's Raw Power You Want Buy A Zj — Plenty of mods so braking is worse and acceleration and handling are a lot better. Build quality is excellent, needed repairs but that was due to lack of care from prev. owner. Gas is cheap and I do my own maintenance. The car is bloody great fun to drive, strong, fast and powerful.

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

Pros: Its a beast

Cons: Normally have been abused by prev. owners

Unstoppable — It could do anything! Always started, always pushed through sand, snow, water couldn't stop it. It could haul things, tow things, It was comfy. Even when it was on it's last legs - 264000 miles - it still ran1 It had a "frozen" Tensioner, Rear Transmission was seizing, Oil was leaking. We were still able to drive it to the dealership!

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

Pros: ultra-relaible

Cons: couldn't pass a gas station

I Wont Have Another — my jeep is pretty slow but its a 4wheeel drive with 31 inch mud tires, it has that right. as you know a jeep is the same as a dodge and after 15000 miles they are due for a new transmission and devellop all kinds of rattles. it is a descent looking rig with the exception of some light damage that was caused by my escapades. it gets a bout 16 mpg in town and 20-22 on the highway. the only fun part is that the 4 wheel drive is excellent and i would take it anywhere

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: snow ice and mud are no problem

Cons: its not a ford
