Fun yet practical

Nice looking, and ready to explore offroad. A pleasure to drive in town, capable off road for lots of fun.


Safe and durable. Love the way it drives.

Comfort is exceptional. Plenty of space. Drives like a champ. Sturdy. You definitely feel safe in this Jeep Grand Cherokee.


went well beyound what I expected

252,000 miles... motor still good.... needs new transmission . I could not have asked for a better vehicle


Die hard Jeep Fan!

I absolutely love my Jeep! I couldn't have made a better purchase when I bought this vehicle. There isn't anything bad I can say about my Jeep. It is hands down the best , most reliable, easy to maintain vehicle I have ever owned!


I love my Jeep!

Good on gas, drives highway as well as going through snow and climbing hills. The hatch opens up not out which is good for loading.


Literally My Child

I am in love with this car. It's so cute and it has all of the amenities I wanted! It has some issues, but my baby always pulls through. The trans has needed some work since I bought it in September of 2016, but it's held up very well despite my daily usage. So far I've only had to replace the computer, the starter, and a couple of sensors. Overall, I love this car.


1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Got the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited as a first vehicle when I was 16, 8 years later I'm still driving it! Best vehicle I've ever driven, I've taken her all over, tows like theres no tomorrow. It has the leather heated seats, moonroof, 10 disc CD player, 4x4, Infinity Sound System all the goods. Still looks beautiful at 18 years old, very minimal repair work done after all these years, under $1000, and i still haven't entertained the thought of buying a new one! It has survived many Central New York winters and has like no rust. Has 250,000 miles, it just wont die!


It's what you make of it.

I have the Laredo with the 4.7 V8 with the Infinity Gold factory sound system, leather seats and mostly no upgrades except for custom floormats and an aluminum rear end body from when I had the rear suspension area rebuilt, and use it as a commuter vehicle and a wild off roading machine. I've owned my Jeep for almost 3 years and I've come to learn several things about my vehicle: Pros: -The interior is not only durable to any condition and cleanliness but also extremely comfortable and the Infinity Gold sound system still sounds better than most custom ones out there. - This Grand Cherokee performs just as well as any Wrangler off-roading (and honestly is way comfier) -Handled 16 inches of snow, 14 inches off mud, and forded several creeks without getting stuck or having any major problems -The full time 4x4 makes parking anywhere easy, and has helped me dodge several potential wrecks -The 4.7L V8 helps drive through any terrain and has great acceleration -Some people say they've had rough rides in these but I've kept up on maintaining the suspension and have always had a comfy ride on/ off the road -Fairly easy to repair/ replace some parts of it even with limited mechanics knowledge Cons: -The full time 4x4 Quadra-Trac system wears down drivetrain parts faster than most other vehicles that are selectable 4x4. -Even at it's best fuel milage, I get about 17 mpg on the highway and about 12 in the city -When major parts (engine, transmission, transfer case, etc.) break or need replacing, it is not cheap and takes a good bit of time to fix. -Since the vehicle is used and older, it seems like I'm having to replace or fix something every couple of months Summary: It's a Jeep, and a great one at that. I've put mine through it's paces on and off the road and can't see me leaving it until i get it stuck somewhere I can't save it or it gets totaled in a wreck. I've had to replace or fix many parts on it, but come on, it's a vehicle that's at least 16 years old as of 2015 so of course things will fail or break at this point on if they haven't already been completely replaced. As long as you maintain it well and check everything after off-roading (one should always do this anyways), this Jeep is an outstanding solid vehicle all around.


Okay First Car

Have owned my '99 Jeep GC for almost three years now. It has been okay for a first car, but it's time for something new. The 2nd Gen GC is my favorite exterior design. It is timeless. But, it is a chore driving this SUV. The steering is very heavy especially while parking, it always feels out of alignment, the seats are comfortable, but there is no leg room if you are over 5'5". The suspension is very poor, you feel every bump through your spine and through the steering wheel. The transmission sucks. Very reluctant to shift when cold and revs past 4000-5000 RPM before shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. Everyone loves the design of this GC, but hates riding in it. Reliability has been so-so. Have had to put new belt pulleys, hoses, fuel filter, axle fluid, steering fluid, completely new brakes on all 4 wheels, new tires, new transmission fluid/filter and more just in 3 years of ownership. Always wonder whether it will start when I turn the key. It never wants to start the first time. Won't buy another Jeep.


Great 4x4, but high maintenance.

This Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V8 can go through anything. Excellent in all weather conditions. I have Hankook Dynapro ATM tires and it's the perfect combo. Never had a better car in the snow. However, while the Jeep is a great vehicle it's pricey to maintain. Just about everything has been repaired or replaced. Got more money into the car than what I bought it for. MPG could be better. I get 16/24ish depending on conditions. Power with the V8 is good and passing is not a problem. Plastic lower body panels are good protection from rock chips, but fade to a blotchy gray. I like how high up I sit when I drive, though it does drive like a truck. You don't float like a Cadillac by any means. You feel the road, every little bump. Overall, if you want a good 4x4 that's also a daily driver get this car. I recommend it. Just realize that it comes with maintenance.
