Don't expect that Jeep to be as reliable as your old Subarus- I would be afraid of engine failure in that model, especially if it has not been maintained properly by the previous owners-

5 recalls and 74 technical service bulletins and one Federal investigation http://www.carcomplaints.com/Jeep/Grand_Cherokee/2005/

It's hard to say how long it will last. Jeep vehicles usually are below average in reliability. Repair costs will be more frequent. Used vehicles are always a gamble.

Thanks for your answers on the grand Cherokee - any thoughts on 05 Lexus RX 330?

Lexus would be much better choice, but consider a RX-350. They are newer and a better vehicle.
