2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7
Could be a little bigger, but then it would be a Tahoe. Go Jeep!
Windshield wiper motor has a short, power window regulators, nothing serious.
All support arms for the hood and rear hatches.
Brakes are a little soft for this vehicle.
Paint is chipping from being g parked for 5 years.
First off, let me say that this little truck is the closest thing to a tank that a regular person can buy, at least before the Hummer came along.
I bought this Jeep with a rebuilt title from a salvage yard. Even though it had been in a serious accident, it rides great.
I recently put on some tires that were more for the interstate. Does very well at all speeds. It's not a big truck by any means. The 4.7 with the Select Trac full time 4x4 is basically like driving a Hemi because of the size and weight of the little Jeep. From 60 to 85 mph is special. You almost don't realize how fast you can pass another car. It's fast but safe at the same time.
Still one of the best trail 4x4 vehicles out there today. It can make turns that bigger trucks can't.
Gas is okay, but you will pay to play. The smaller truck gets bad reviews, but these little guys can take punishment. Does all tasks well. Don't get in a hurry and you can get the 19 MPG as advertised. That can quickly dip down to 14 if you tap into that baby Hemi power with the air running.
I work for a wireless Internet company so I take the Jeep off road quite a bit. The clearance isn't quite as high as I would like, but I haven't done any mods to it, and being small makes up for it. Most of the ranch roads and mountain trails are made for bigger trucks. I dodge bigger rocks and boulders by weaving sometimes. If I do happen to hit a rock, no worries because the underneath of a Jeep is mostly steel. They are made tough. It's common to see a 30 year old Jeep still working hard out there. I want a newer one, but this one has still got 200k to go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
