This Car Performs Well And Is A Fun Car To Drive. — I really like this SUV and the trim package on this vehicle. The stereo system is very good and it's a sharp looking vehicle. This is a well handling SUV and it's fun to drive. Mine has not needed repairs but it does have a couple of small rattles. The interior is also appealing. This vehicle gets okay gas mileage but could be better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, performance

Cons: I wish it had a little more interior room

A Good Deal For The Economic Crisis That The Country Is In — The interior design finally came through. Very well thought out. Even thought it took some of mercedes cues... I like the front of the car but the rear needs a better lift, but overall was worth it, and only time will tell.

Pros: improve handling and overall performance

Cons: nothing

I Like It — looks & sounds awesome, goes & stops very well, liked the handling, ride quality still fine, loves petrol stations partially due to a smallish tank, didnt like build quality, started squeeking already, feels its weight, very low chin spoiler annoys when parking..

Pros: daily driver with a decent performance

Cons: build quality

Grand Cherokee Limtied — needs better gas mileage. should have gotten a hybrid. i bought it right befor the speculators started screwing us with oil prices. fun to drive although I don't use the Hemi much with 3.60 gasoline. Much better interior than previous model in 2005. it's cool you can play your Ipod through it.

Pros: Great SUV. Lot's of room.

Cons: Bad Gas Mileage.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Crd — The Diesel version, let's just say that this engine is a gem. Powerfull, quiet (you know it's a diesel, but it's not your typical Cummins rattle-maker) and surprisingly economical (just remember it's a 4000+ pounds SUV, but i'm doing 26MPG on average. And moreover, after 20000 KM, you stick your finger up the exhaust pipe and it's not even dark, so it's environnementaly friendly as well. No more gas engine for me!

Pros: Engine, Engine, Engine, Engine!

Cons: Rear vsibility is soso, otherwise, a little plastic feel inside the car

Srt8 Cherokee. Best Vehicle Chrysler Has Built Since The Hemi 'cuda — Beautiful, amazing, but be prepared to got 300km per 70 liter tank. Not good for long commutes or highway trips cause od is not geared very high. Gas milage is no different on the highway than in the city. You obviously don't buy this car for mileage but it could have been better

Pros: Performance, looks, comfort, luxury

Cons: GAS MILAGE

2008 Grand Cherokee Overland Review —

I love the new interior, it's almost perfect. However, the center console is cheap-feeling, and the plastic chrome accents are not solid and look really fake. The HEMI has more power over the 4.7L, however it's MDS feature is worthless, adding an advertised 15% better gas mileage, but in reality it's much worse than that. The car weights over 6,000 lbs so gas mileage is pretty crappy, but that's no surprise for a 5.7L V8. I get about 12 MPG average in city and highway driving. The seats are not 8-way power like my old 1999 Grand Cherokee Limited, with manual lumbar adjustment, the passenger seat only 4-way power (can't move up/down), driver is 6-way power -- but the front of the seat doesn't go up as high as I would like it to. The wood and leather steering wheel is a very nice touch, but where the wood meats the leather, big gaps are visible which make it look cheap. I hate how the door locks are in the exact same spot as where I like to put my arm while driving, and the window sill is too high. The 1999 GC Limited didn't have these issues. Sirius satellite, while free for the first year, sounds TERRIBLE, even when compared to standard FM. This is a known issue (google it), with XM offering slightly better quality. The Sirius real-time traffic is neat, but not very practical, as it only shows major roadways and sometimes nothing at all. Once my subscription runs out I will not be renewing. The navigation/radio system sometimes gets "stuck" and won't let you press a button unless you "refresh" it by going to another screen and then back again. I'm sure there will be a software update to address this problem. The last negative thing I can think of is that the seat doesn't offer adequate side support, and I feel that I need to hold on to the center console when making sharp turns. You can't hold onto the shifter like with the < 2005 models because you will shift the gear down/up -- pretty annoying, but not a big deal. OK, now for the things I like. There are waaaaay too many to list, but I will try to touch on the best ones. The 30GB HDD is absolutely great! It has about 16 GB of space for your own music/pictures, which is more than plenty. I recommend buying a 16 GB flash drive (~ $50 on Amazon), and use it to hold your music collection including playlists. The navigation is solid, and very useful. The LED-illuminated instrument panel looks very good and is very functional. Love the HID headlights with the SmartBeam and auto-leveling features. The exterior styling is superb, looks great at any angle. Gas mileage aside, I absolutely love this car.

Pros: Interior, exterior, navigation, 30GB HHD, HIDs, steering wheel, audio system

Cons: HEMI is underpowered for a 6,100-lb SUV, engine is load especially while in MDS, some cheap-looking chrome accents

2008 Grand Cherokee Laredo — Pretty much the same engine as the 06 Jeep my father had to trade in. The interior on the 08 is much nicer as is the slightly updated exterior making it seem larger. Chrome accents and two tone stitching on the seats make the Jeep seem more luxurious than it really is. Larger tires and slightly more headroom are a plus. The rear bumper could be designed better and made stronger. Only two days on the road and someone tapping the bumper with their small sedan left a big scratch and chip in the paint.

Pros: Styling, Performance

Cons: Visibility, Rear Bumper Construction

Very Nice — Interior is flawless with black/tan leather seats, which by the way are quite comfortable. The faux wood finishing adds to the elegance of the interior. I love the fact that the GPS is now touch screen. Exterior is sharp, beautiful, and really stands out from the crowd. Handling is quite good. The performance is really good with the 5.7L 340HP hemi under the hood. It'll get you where you need to go, safely and quickly.

Pros: -great styling
-great performance
-fun to drive

Cons: -slightly too small
-the back seats are too close to the front seats = not comfy for a 6 foot tall person

It's My First Suv!!! Still Enjoying My Jeep!!! — I wish i got the V8 since mpg is similar as with V6. The ride is comfortable but lacks power. I haven't tested on off-road or heavy snow yet. It's the gas drinker just like any other SUV, but wish the gas price is a bit cheaper. For now, I like the car.

Pros: Looks nice and comfortable. Everything except the cons.

Cons: Drinks gas so much. My CD/MP3 player plays the first track every time I restart the car.
