Summary:

A fine running machine

Faults:

Had to replace the brakes at 145,000 miles.

Replaced the radiator at 110,000 miles.

Driver side seat belt reciever has been replaced.

The transition to 4wd on this vehicle is rough.

General Comments:

This is one fine running machine. We have had our Jeep for five years and drive it very hard, averaging about 25,000 miles per year. It requires little maintenance and is very reliable. Around town it handles quickly and on the freeway it runs well.

Only negatives on this vehicle are the rough transition to 4wd and leg room for tall folks. Our Jeep makes a grinding noise when I go to 4wd, and if you are very tall (over 6"3) there is not enough leg room, especially on long trips.

But, all in all our Jeep Cherokee Laredo runs strong and is really versatile and we use ours for just about everything. We have put a lot of miles on this car for relatively little dollars.

Sorry my friend, please correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I know the grinding noise you hear is the fact that you are supposed to stop the car on the side of the road and change into 4WD, not in the middle of driving!

I'm afraid you're also wrong. You need to slow to >5mph to shift into 4wd low. It's shifts on the fly into 4wd high. The grinding noise is likely from his hubs being locked or a damaged transfer case.

Summary:

There's only one Jeep

Faults:

Number 1 & 2 fuel injectors blew the o-rings (easy to fix & cheap).

Driver side seat broke.

The gas tank leaks, but that's my fault since I smacked it on a rock.

Passenger side brake, tail, and reverse light don't work. The Sockets rusted out.

General Comments:

This truck is awesome. I am a professional firefighter and I drive about 110 miles one-way to work every 3rd day and my Jeep never hesitates. I also volunteer for a fire dept. so I have lights and sirens on it and it just about out runs the sound from my siren. This truck holds all my fire gear, 2 Dalmatians , 1 Doberman, a Boxer-Lab mix me and my wife comfortably. I would recommend this truck to anyone. It does start a little slow on cold days, but it's 12 years old. I wish I had more. In the past I had a 1998 Jeep Wrangler that ran like a champ too. Jeep makes a great product.

Summary:

Made a little TOO well..

Faults:

The hoses are worn.

Thermostat has faulted; needs replacement.

Carpets are stained.

Fuse was taken out of sunroof.

General Comments:

Well, I must say... Jeep has outdone itself. This car was originally my mother's, and she has since purchased a Ford Explorer and passed the Jeep unto me.

I am a 19-year old girl who NEVER sleeps... I am always on the road. And for someone like me, who drives about 100+ miles a day, I would have to say this car is tough and AMAZING.

I start it anywhere from one to five times a day, and neither the starter or alternator has given up on me.

All the gauges, with the exception of the thermostat, is in working order, and the transmission has held up quite well.

Being that I drive frequently in the city, I would have to say that the brakes have held up better than I thought they would have. And they've also saved me many times from running into things such as deer and oncoming traffic (haha).

All in all, this car is awesome. My coolant hose just busted, but that was expected, and will take $7 and a bottle of engine coolant to repair.

Go Jeep!

If you don't sleep then don't drive, I wouldn't want you hitting my vehicle.

My Dad had one of the old army jeeps; you couldn't hurt that thing, now my Son has a Cherokee too, oh and so do I...
