Just bought the 2008 Jeep GC with the Mercedes 3.0L CRD (Diesel). Great SUV. Day after I bought it in MI we had 8 inches of snow but the Jeep with full time 4x4 just plowed through like it wasn't there. The next day I pulled my VW Golf back to VA. It pulled that car on a dolly with ease even through the 8 inches of snow on the dirt road where I was staying that had not been plowed. Got over 400 miles out of 21 gallons with that VW in tow. Right at 20 mpg with a tow running the speed limit on the OH and PA turnpikes. Never even heard it grab a lower gear when going up hills. Very impressed so far.

Do not want to come out of driving seat.

by from Qatar Middle east on July 18, 2010

5.7 L Hemi is very good power and your control. It is real fun to drive this vehicle. It will go through any obstacle without hassle. Designed tough and carries long term off road experience.

2008 coulda used a little more 2004

I have now owned this car for 18 months, and I love it. Unfortunately, I owned a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee before this one, and it was my favorite car I've ever owned (And I used to own a BMW), so this 2008 just doesn't QUITE measure up. I have most of the bells you can get (Leather, moonroof, auto-start, XM radio, 6-disk changer, etc...) Unfortunately, the driver's window doesn't always do the Auto-up / auto-down function. That is negligible. The handling is great, and I find this car wonderful for long trips (Boston to NYC, for example). The seats are very comfortable, and the iPod MP3-player jack is very convenient. Watch out for large blind spots, though. The angle of the windshield is quite different from the 2004, and it took me quite some time to get used to the large support structure / frame. I thought the price quite reasonable for all I got, though the mileage wasn't as good as my 2004. I'm going to wager it's because it's a similar-sized engine to the 2004, but this car obviously weighs more. I highly recommend this Jeep. Enjoy!

I bought the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 6 cylinder in August. In the 6 months I've owned my Jeep, I've been very satisfied with it's performance. I love the adjustable pedals because I am petite. I love the navigation with UConnect, rear view camera, sun roof, auto lights, even the idiot lights are awesome. It tells me when to get an oil change, which direction I am going in, how many miles til my gas is empty. It has a super nice interior with heated seats. Automatic 4x4 in the electronic stability controll package. Drives great in the snow. I wish the back seat had more leg room for my son though. And I can hear more road noise then desirable, but I would definitely by another Jeep. Next time I think I will get the 8 cylinder for the more powerful towing.

Overall I'm extremely happy with my Grand Cherokee. It drives great, looks great, has all the features I wanted, and I got it for so much less than the over-priced import SUV's out there. It looks like an SUV, I don't feel like a soccer dad driving it around. My two little boys and I use it for everything from camping to hauling mulch to roadtripping to see the grandparents. Overall very pleased, my first Jeep has been great.

I bought this car 2 months ago and so far love it. Because Diesel fuel is higher the dealer couldn't sell this truck so I stole it for under invoice and I got a $4k rebate form Jeep. Great powerand you could never tell it was a Diesel. I love the remote start to get the AC going, during the hot summer months that is going to a real niiiice feature. Interior is a little cheap, but nice. The ride is harder then I like, but not bad. I have run 2 tanks of BioDiesel 20% (B20) and it has not missed a beat. One thing I do not like is that they did not put a foot rest for my left foot when driving. I really like the rear cargo area. The rear tray that flips over to be a plastic tray that holds items in place is a great idea.

It's a nice car. However, I wish that it has a better transmission, because sometime I feel the change when the transmission is shifting to different gears. Specially, when I accelerate and then I decide to slow down, at that time I can feel it clearly. On the other hand I really like it when I go off-road, it's really work well. You can see some youtube clip videos. You will get amazed.

I just purchased an 08 Grand Cherokee Limited, coming out of an 01, and a 99 before that. 4.7 V-8 and 4 wheel drive. 17 in town and 23 on the road at 70+ mph. Very nice, very powerful, very comfortable and very confidence inspiring. I put 150K on the 01 and it was just sold over book value in great condition. I hope to do the same with the 08.
