I love all the features this 2002 jeep Grand Cherokee has to offer. For the year this jeep is a great value. The only thing missing is one tons and a lift. There are other models, but I like the V8

I Would Not Buy Another One. — Overall a very clean straight forward Jeep, nothing too fancy other than the Quadra drive 4 wheel drive system, it will require a little more maintenance than the normal 4X4 but I really like it. I think the biggest problem is the brakes, they are OK for offroading but at freeway speeds they need more braking surface. Update, It hit a 148K and things have been steadly breaking down, first the tranny at 79K then after 100K the front speakers quit working, the cones cracked so they had to be replaced, so far it has went through 4 sets of front brakes and 2 sets of rear and 2 complete sets of rotors just due to warping, heater core, power steering pulley broke and dented the hood, rear tailgate lift struts quit working and had to be replaced, and how the tranny is acting up again, time to unload it, bye bye Jeep.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good leg room, highway noise levels are good, AWD is good,,  very hard to get it stuck, but if you do your really stuck.

Cons: Needs bigger brakes, heating A/C system not the best, seats need to be made out of better material. Fuel mileage is not that good. AWD is not that good on highway with snow on it, better to put it in AWD LO lock and drive accordingly.

Love it. straight six engine bulletproof . Too bad they stopped making it. I think they stopped producing that 4.0 engine is because they didnt break down enough for them to return to jeep dealerships to make more money by repairing them all the time.

Don't Do It. —

Pros, well....ah....let me think. I'll get back to that? Cons: your website isn't large enough. Don't even consider getting one of these! There is no interior room. It might be big enough if you are single with no pets. The back end kind of scoops up at the corners. Not sure what kind of look Jeep was goin for with that, but it really cuts down on interior space. It's a very narrow vehicle so make sure you love the person you're traveling with. You're going to be close all day, and I mean close! Mechanically? Forget it. We had this darn thing in constantly. Some kind of cooling issue caused the engine to overheat and we had to replace it. Then had transmission issues. It blew through brakes like we rode down hill both ways to work with our foot on the pedal the whole way. The vents never worked right. It was noisy. We crossed our fingers every time we had to start it. Our mechanic became our best friend, and all of the mechanics in town knew who we were. I hated this vehicle. Sitting in the back seat? Well make sure you're nimble because you have to lift your leg a certain way to get your foot out from behind where the frame hugs the side of the vehicle. Just know you're legs might be numb and cramping from not having any room before you even attempt to get out! Pros? I liked the color. Very pretty color. Yah, the color was nice!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Hmmmm...give me minute. I'm sure I can think of something! The color was nice.

Cons: They shouldn't even call this an SUV. There is no interior room at all. Forget packing anything for a trip unless you're single!

Get's It Done — I love the spaciousness and the fact that I can be a little rough with it. Some maintenance issues but overall a good car. My car is getting to be high mileage but doesn't seem to be slowing down yet. I think I can keep it for another 5 years possibly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of space, great for carrying things around, feels really cozy and drives well enough

Cons: Have had some minor maintenance issues such as the drain line backing up into the front seat but it was an easy fix. Radiator has a small slow leak that is also a common problem with the brand.

Pleasantly Surprised And Happy Jeep Owner — Parking/ebrake drum configuration is a real bear. Don't understand why they did it that way on this vehicle. The ebrake drum shoes are expensive at $30/pair and they are a pain in the butt to work on. The rest of the brakes on all four corners are disc with ABS so it stops really well. The Quadradrive 4x4 system works wonderfully in the central Oregon ever changing road conditions. Really grips the road well and the system works quietly without any clunking (like my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado K1500) or growling (like my old 2005 Chevrolet Equinox AWD). Turns really tight. Great for maneuvering in small areas.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Strong, powerful 4.7 V8, rain sensing windshield wipers, auto headlamps, heated seats, TPMS

Cons: Seems to be more body roll than I'm used to in an SUV
