    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.
    Back Seats Ranked 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe better.
    "bigger seat fits 3 people more comfortably."
    Family Car Ranked 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe worse.
    "better on gas more reliable"

    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

    I Would 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.

    Pros: Good leg room, highway noise levels are good, 4WD is excellent,  very hard to get it 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.

    Love My Jeep — Love my Jeep. Great in the sand, mud, woods, trails, anything that comes its way! Very nice limited edition package has everything plus more to offer. Lots of power with the 4.7 Liter Powertech engine that gets not to shabby mileage. Not my first Jeep nor will it be the last.

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

    Pros: Everything.

    Cons: Nothing.

    Great Luxury Ride — Overall, I found this vehicle enjoyable, safe and dependable to drive. There was plenty of space for the all demands of my job, running a business and being a mom. I would recommend this vehicle to other moms looking for a vehicle that does it all.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This vehicle has a lot of luxuries that I have never had on another vehicle.  
    The heated leather seats are great for winter.  
    The remote radio controls on the steering wheel meant I could keep my hands on the wheel and my eyes on the road.
    We added a remote start to make it warm and cozy in winter and cool in summer for our little one prior to driving.  
    The cargo space is large enough for a stroller, full shopping trip and then some.
      For all of the luxury, this vehicle also makes a reliable family vehicle with plenty of space for a family of up to 5.

    Cons: The mpg for this vehicle makes it a little more expensive to drive due to the all-time 4 wheel drive and V8,  but that's to be expected with a larger engine/vehicle.
