Just bought a 1998 grand cherokee 4l auto with 87000 on it. Not in bad nick, bit thirsty on petrol, but I love it - its great for what I want it for, which is having my little girl in the back at a height that I can lift her out easily. And it was dead cheap!
Needs some bits doing on it - the hinge pin on the drivers door needs attention, and the coolant sensor will need replacing at some point - but I knew that before I bought it - and I don't care - its a brilliant buy. I';d certainly get… Read Full Review

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has got 4WD and is super fun. Only maintenance has been filling it with gas and changing the oil. Never skidded in, bought with 34k miles and now as 54k miles. I can fit all my friends and family in it and its an AWESOME first car for me. I will ALWAYS buy jeeps from now on… Read Full Review

This Jeep is a great vehicle. It should not be lumped in with "SUVs". It is in a different category-it is a special purpose 4WD. It's not for hauling kids. The Grand Cherokee takes my wife and I to great fishing spots in the Rocky Mountains where only maybe a Rubicon might get farther. It has lots of creature comforts and a neat GPS system.
In snow, ice and high altitude it performs fantasticly. The 5.7 Hemi doesn't flinch pulling a load at 11,000 feet plus.
If you drive one, you're going to… Read Full Review

I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2wd SUV in 1999 with 80,000 miles on it. The car had been meticulously maintained by a wealthy family, so I thought I was being smart. Guess Again!!
The car ran great for a year and then it just started falling apart.
I replaced the air conditioning unit once, then it broke again two years later. $2000 total for both systems.
The steering system went out. $500
The water pump, twice. $500
The brakes, 3 times in 50,000 miles??? $1000
The headliner fell… Read Full Review

Stay away from the 4.7L V-8 engines, and you can have a good Jeep. Find a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV with a 318 or even a 383. The venerable 4.0 "Nash" inline six is also good. Power is adequate, if not mind blowing. It'll still tow a good sized trailer. It will get about 2MPG more than a V-8.
Handling is just fair om GJCs, but it is offset by the vehicles sheer climbing ability. While the JGC will not actually go ANYWHERE, it will get you into some unbelieveable places (and back out)… Read Full Review
