Gas Hog — I bought this car new. My wife has always wanted a Jeep, so I got her this one. Didn't take long for her to change her mind, as soon as she realized how much it cost to drive, ie: fuel. The Jeep was good on trips, and I absolutely loved driving it in the mountains. I set the cruise and the Jeep would keep the speed within 5 mph of the setting wether I was giong up a hill or coming down. One excellent feature.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The car had plenty of power, and it was roomy. Great to drive in the mountains.

Cons: Terrible fuel economy, blind spots galore, and it handled like a rowboat in a storm.

Limited Edition And Rare Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition — Don't get me wrong... it's still an American made SUV with typical quality issues but nothing I feel worth complaining about. The OVERLAND Edition enhanced trim level got some help from me with oversized black steel rims and tires, tinted windows and wheel rain guards. Other small modifications have improved gas mileage and boosted performance. Resonator has been removed from exhaust system and a MagnaFlow glasspack muffler makes for a perfect street roar. Truck sticks to road better than any Corvette I've owned with oversized front and rear sway bars and the Bilstein shocks and struts provide the perfect height and aggressive stance. Adding wider tires provides stability and stance. Cross drilled rotors and high performance brake pads provide powerful braking ability. The OVERLAND edition combined with my upgrades makes this a unique vehicle. I love to drive it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love this OVERLAND Edition... a 5.7 liter HEMI paired to rear wheel drive cuts down on weight and additional systems that would slow down this beast.  Build for Street Speed... no off roading here!   Every conceivable option included: power everything, Sat/NAV/rear DVD systems with remote control and in-seat connections, rear parking sensors, in-dash vehicle monitoring, enhanced exterior styling and trim, leather seats with suede inserts... list goes on and on.  

Cons: Typical Jeep issues for the model year... strange transmission gear ratios, exhaust manifold leaks, and poor gas mileage - but that is to be expected with the 5.7L HEMI

Good Quality Good Ride ?fuel Milage — i like it because i am just one but i realize now that i cant move things like furniture because of space restrictions and i live 150 miles from stores i have hopes of getting starting problem fixed soon but i must figure it out myself as who can afford jeep dealer prices? but basically i think it is a good vehicle as a whole just dont over estimate the size of the interior if you have children

Pros: like the drivability in snow and ice when it starts it reliable and runs very smooth at 79000 miles it still has a smooth ride but i have only had it for the last 10000 miles i live in lincoln montana elev of 5600 ft  so it gets cold heater works great and no major repairs as of yet

Cons: it can get hard to see out of side windows as it seems to have several blind spotswhen passing or changing lanes so i am very careful and sometimes it can be diffucult to hold on the road if strong winds which are inherent to montana and i would never recommend pulling more than a 20ft trailer at any weight pass seats in rear must be made for very small people 2 adults in backseat is very tight

Great Jeep — I honestly love this truck because to the look and the durability, very clean and well maintained… tires are almost new so not to worry about tires for a while...the car accelerate and brakes very well and handles very well over all..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is a very medium size truck that would always get the work done

Cons: It is a 8 cylinder engine so it as some tendency to burn off some gas

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee (wk) Limited 4wd — The WK series Grand Cherokee is an overall good SUV but the 4.7L is very very thirsty... (I imagine the 5.7L as well). Power is sufficient although a little more wouldn't hurt. Ride is comfortable but not as roomy as I expected, especially if you have the sunroof which lowers the overall headroom by another inch-inch and a half.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Strong engine and good off-road capabilities

Cons: Fuel economy

Beautiful — overall I have little to no complaints... especially working for Jeep Chrysler Dodge for 12+ years. The overall vehicle is solid, will nearing 100k on it, I think it will be like my last personal Grand and hit the 300 mark on the odometer.

Pros: Love the looks, the handling, power and reliability of Jeeps.

Cons: fuel economy of the Hemi for city driving

Seems Decent — Still getting to know her. Enjoy the 4.7L power and smoothness. Putting a exhaust system lends to more sound which I like. NAv system could be a little more flexible. Overall a nice SUV. I have just under 90,000 miles on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quadra Drive II

Cons: Navigation System

Reliable Sporty Family Suv — Bought this 06' Jeep in 2007. Drove from Atlanta, GA to San Diego CA and back. No problems whatsoever, This car was built to last and the interior is quite luxurious for a off road capable suv. Leather seats, heated power driver and passenger seats, heated side mirrors, cliimate control, adjustable pedals. The only thing is it could do with towing package as standard, better mileage and probably a little more cubic trunk space. Otherwise, I would buy this vehicle again in a heartbeat.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Rides smooth, handling is excellent. No mechanical issues.

Cons: Fuel economy. Cargo room could be better.
