are the parts for a 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited inexpensive
They're not the cheapest but they're not the most expensive either. Cheapest parts belong to fleet vehicles, namely Ford or Chevys. Expensive parts belong to foreign imports and "status" vehicles. You're in between those two.
As a former Jeep Grand Cherokee owner, if your stuck with using the dealers parts they are expensive and believe me that there are some parts that aftermarkets just don't work right. But if your not in a hurry there are a lot of parts on Ebay.
They're dirt-cheap compared to Jaguar, Mercedes and BMW parts.
I am thinking of buying a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee , that or a 2005 what do you think is better 2002 or 2005
Depends on your intended use, overall condition, engine, lots of factors. The '02 4x4 has a solid front axle, and if you want to go off- road, that is definitely superior. The independent front axle on an '05 will give a better highway ride - ALL OTHER FACTORS BEING EQUAl, which they seldom are. 6-cylinders give better gas mileage, V8s have better performance and usually betterr towing capacity. And so on...
does a 6 or 8 cylinder waste more gas as suppose to a 4cylinder which waste less gas
The 4 cylinder is fine for low speeds, but no towing, no freeway speeds, that stuff is just too hard on the small engine, the 6 is better for freeway speeds and for towing, but the V8 is the best for everything, on my V8 grand Cherokee I got 14 in town and 21 on the highway, I know that is quite a spread from town to highway but if you ever got stuck in my town's morning or evening traffic you would know why, it would take you 45 minutes to a hour to go 5 miles. So if I was to purchase another Jeep, it would have a V8 in it and just deal with the fuel mileage loss.
