It Drinks Gas, But In Bad Weather Nothing Handles Better — I purchased this SUV while I was stationed in Hawaii, this has been my primary mode of transportation for the past 5 years.

Pros: Handles great, comfortable, and is pretty reliable

Cons: Drinks gas like its going out of style

Great Car With Tons Of Power — This car is awesome, has tons of power for doing anything with tons of possibilities thanks to the Mopar 360 under the hood. Nice and spacious, with all the comforts of home.

Great Performance Suv With 4wd, Ready To Take On Any Weather. — This model Jeep is one of the easiest to take care of. Low maintenance, great performance and endurance, easy to clean interior, roomy, and ready to go just about anywhere. Add a nice lift-kit and other offroading add-ons and this model would be perfect for driving in the dirt!

Pros: This car has some serious "get up and go!" power.  Steering is very sturdy, not loose like with some cars where you have to keep both hands on the wheel to keep the car in line.  The braking system is excellent and this car can stop on a dime, unless it's slick on the road, then you've got to be careful.  This car is very roomy and can hold a lot of stuff in the trunk.

Cons: This particular model sometimes has problems with the 4WD where when you change from 4WD back to 2WD (rear-wheel), the system takes a while to fully change back.  Which basically means that if you take it from 4WD to 2WD on the main roads, then try and park the car, the 4WD makes the car jerk a bit when turning slowly into a parking spot.  It's not a big problem, but can get a little annoying.  Also, this model Jeep gets 14 city, 17 highway, on average so it's not the best with gas prices as current, but if you're doing mostly hwy driving, it can get 17-20 mpg on long trips!

Not For Driving Ms Daisy — There are only 15000 worldwide. It housed a Magnum 5.9 L V8 engine with an output of 245 hp and 345 lb·ft of torque, going from zero to 60 mph (100 km/h) in only 6.8 seconds making it the quickest SUV available that year. The straight-line performance of the 1998 Grand Cherokee 5.9 has been surpassed by Jeep only with the 2006 introduction of the 6.1 L SRT8 HEMI Grand Cherokee.

Pros: K&N air intake

Cons: oversized tires

Go Anywhere Without Breaking A Sweat — Few vehicles (even other Jeeps) will get you where you want to go with such ease and in such comfort. The only problems are the horrible auto box which throws away most of the engine's power before you can get it on the road, and the price of spares and maintenance (and of course fuel)

Pros: Go anywhere (literally)

Cons: Underpowered on the road, and expensive to maintain
