Great First Car

I love my Jeep; I bought it two summers ago when gas hit $4, so I got a great deal on the fully loaded limited with 92,000 miles. In Ohio this winter, it plowed through 25 inches of snow. I did get stuck once, but that was in the mud and snow (I don't really like my tires, Yokahoma Geolanders, wish I put don?t big bucks for Goodyear?s). Over the summer, the 4.7 V8 pulled strongly with a 2,500 lbs trailer through the mountains. About a year ago, I had to replace the oil pressure sensor; the gauge would drop to zero. The wheels are starting to corrode from salt, but that?s not really an issue. I love the plush seats and commanding driving position. Not sure I like the Quadra-Drive system, I think I would prefer a part-time system because of fuel economy and I think it might work better. Don?t get me wrong, it is a beast off road, and great for the weekend Home Depot run. Other than that (knock on wood) nothing wrong mechanical, although I might have to replace the thermostat, as the temp. gauge rises a little in the summer. Oh, and current mileage is about 120,000 and I average 12-17 MPG. I highly recommend for towing, off-roading, and kid hauling.

Drives nice, looks good, and it's super comfy! I have the limited edition with the super comfortable heated leather seats and it's awesome! Comes stock with a tow package and a really decent infinity gold stereo. The engine is strong and if treated right will last a good long time. I have the v8 and I get about 11.9 mpg in town and I do recommend getting a jeep with the straight 6 as those engines were darn near bullet proof (so to speak) and get even better gas mileage! The limited editions only come with v8's i believe... I have owned a couple jeeps over the past 10 years and i stand by em! They have great suspension travel and are very versatile vehicles. Great for a family, offroad enthusiasts, daily drivers, etc!!! The possibilities are unlimited with a jeep! I love my jeep and couldn't be happier!

The vehicle I purchased was taken care of very well, garage kept and made sure before purchase to get carfax. I do definatly think I got a reasonable deal for the vehicle but also made sure to do my homework and buy from someone who is trust worthy.

Great SUV

On of the best SUV's I've owned. This is my #2 GC in my ownership experience. I have the Selec-Trac 4x4 V8 which I get 22-24mpg hwy and sometimes the rare 26mpg hwy. My old '94 Limited never got stuck...
On of the best SUV's I've owned. This is my #2 GC in my ownership experience. I have the Selec-Trac 4x4 V8 which I get 22-24mpg hwy and sometimes the rare 26mpg hwy. My old '94 Limited never got stuck, and just as well, neither has my 2000! 127 carried over parts and my 2000 looks as good as she can get. I get asked all the time if she's a 2004 because my headlights aren't sanded like the rest of them.

It's a gas guzzler. One thing I'd like to see it have is some more seating. Other than those things, it's Fantastic! I love it. Very comfortable ride, and I love sitting up high enough to see all around me. It has very good "get up and go" and it's been very reliable for me. I've got 118,000 miles on it at this point, and it's performing great.

I love my Jeep. If you live where the snow can pile up, nothing goes through it like a Jeep. On several occasions I've put snow over the hood of my jeep going through snow drifts 4 feet deep and she keeps on going (as long as you have good tires). The only annoying mechanical issue is that Brake Rotors warp easily on this vehicle if the wheel lug nuts are not tightened properly. 4x4 Jeeps require a lot of maintenance, more than most people are willing to do and that's why I suspect so many other reviewers had problems with their jeep. For the home mechanic the Jeep (I-6 especially) is easy to work on from a maintenance standpoint. I love my Jeep and with 110,000 miles on it I feel like I have a lot of life yet and even when I do upgrade to a new car I'm keeping my Jeep just in case the weather gets bad!!!!!!!

This is a great suv for the family. the price was 35k but after all it was worth for what it can do in extreme conditions. Excellent off-road and astonishing in the snow. We owned it for 11 years and its still like new. Never had any problems with it and has over 100k miles on it. we had so much fun at Camp Jeep and we miss and and so does our jeep. The title explains everything i just said. Greatest american car ever.

most features I've ever had in a vehicle

by from N. E. Louisiana on March 18, 2010

More features than my wife's Lincoln Town Car. Very comfortable. Handles extremely well. Great power when You need it, even when towing a trailer or boat. Looks GREAT.

That is my daughter's quote...since the car is for her. She loves it and all the safety features. I am jealous!

Purchased new Grand Jeep Cherokee Laredo in 2000. Had a few problems with brakes which was common with this year Jeep and lots of problems with actuators on doors and too expensive to fix so had to lock and unlock manually. Otherwise just normal wear and tear replacements until engine died at 166,000 which I heard is very unusual for a V6 4 cylinder engine. Was very dissappointed since I LOVED my Jeep and to replace engine will be over $3500 :( Jeep was wonderful in the snow and drove very nice. We originally choose a Jeep because it seemed very heavy duty and well built compared to other SUVS in 2000. Really would have liked to purchase another Jeep but was concerned about engine dying so soon so we purchased a new Toyota RAV4, so will see how this compares. So far drives nice and better gas milleage although smaller.
