We have a 2009 Laredo 4x4 with the standard 3.7L V6 and 5 speed automatic. The performance is very acceptable (contrary to some articles I've read) and the fuel economy is good for a SUV - 2 to 3 MPG better than EPA ratings. We love the style, confort and overall package. The full time 4WD and 5 speed auto are smooth and seamless. Lots of standard features. We got the Rocky Mountain package which includes the excellent My-gig radio, sunroof, heated seats and nice machined wheels - a very good value.

Was looking for a 4x4 but was not sure wich one to choose. After browsing thru the web and finally narrowing my search on three models. I was suprised after trying the others that the grand cherokee was by far the best for handling, comfort and styling. The only problem I see at the moment is that the 3.7 L engine lacks a little bit of pep. A 30 or 40 horsepower more would had been great. Gas comsumption is a little high but I don`t mind spending a couple of bucks more to have the pleasure of driving this truck

Fully loaded and I enjoy driving it more every time I take it out on the road. The way it rides, the features and comfort items really make it a thrill to drive. Ownership of an automobile is part of the American dream and this one really fulfills that for me.

I brought a 2009 Grand Cherokee with great enthusiasm. My wife and I love the car. It's has a comfortable interior and the stereo quality is better than my former 1997 Grand Cherokee. I enjoy driving it to visit my family and to work. Unfortunately, lately, it's having starting issues. When I drove it for more than 25 miles in warm weather and I park it for 15 minutes or more (with the engine off of course), I would start it again and the engine would rock a lot and back fire. After 2 attempt, the engine would run smoothly. So far this issue happened to me twice for the month I owned the Jeep. The dealer is in the process of arranging an appointment to bring in the car for service. I hope they will find the problem. I took a video to show them the issue. Wish me luck.

Perfect for my family

by from Abilene, Tx on June 16, 2017

I needed an SUV but didn't want anything too big. My Jeep is the perfect fit for my family. Lots of room. Drives great! The interior design is awesome. I love it.

Fuel consumption on the highway was right on as per the windshield data - quite a pleasant surprise. Friends are amazed at the quietness of the engine. The GPS is amazing. It took some doing to find a unit with skid plates and Quadra-Drive II. Dealers may be trying to shave a few bucks on the price by ordering without - a mistake!

This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has it all, Styling, Handling, GREAT Braking,HUGE Horse Power, All wheel drive, european style luxury interior. Could not ask for a better combination of performance vs versatility. I would buy this vehicle over any Trailblazer, Explorer, x5, or the MLs. Not to mention this truck is faster than most cars. I love this vehicle! Only minus is mileage, but what do you really expect from AWD & 425hp?

Recently purchased the 4x4 Loredo model. Excellent looks and very comfortable interior. Height of the vehicle may be a problem for some as this vehicle does sits a little high. Fuel consumption is the only downfall I have found so far. I took a trip this weekend about 300 miles round trip driving at average speeds and couldn't get the average up past 16.9 m/gal. Engine noise is at a minimal and the factory sound is good value for those who just want some music in the background. Handeling is very smooth on the Jeep GC, I took it into the mountians with numerous switchbacks and never had the feeling of loosing control or that G force feeling of shifting around in the seats. Overall a great vehicle for the price just remember that your buying into the Jeep heritage and they have never truly been known for there excellent fuel consumption, so plan ahead and know what your getting into.
