Summary:

Extremely reliable and value for money

General Comments:

Excellent to drive virtually anywhere.

Extremely comfortable, feels like sitting on a recliner in the front and sitting on a lounge in the back.

Tonnes of space inside, Very quiet engine especially when going on a long trip with a lot of power and torque.

Excellent list of Safety features including, Airbagsx6, ABS Brakes, Electronic Brake Distribution, Traction Control, Limited Slip Differential plus more and also electric everything you can think of (Windows, Mirrors) etc.

Summary:

I am impressed with the overall package

Faults:

The voltage regulator malfunctioned and over charged the battery casing it to fail and release battery acid in the engine bay.

General Comments:

I have added the optional 60w sub-woofer which I now LOVE, the car drives very well (lots of power) and the diesel is amazing on fuel compared to my last car. jeep has been great and have loaned me another cherokee until I receive mine back.

Can we get more comments on the towing ability of this diesel?

It sounds great, not too thirsty like its petrol version.
