My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee is at my place of employ now. Locked steering column, can't move the gear shaft and key won't turn. Seems like Chrysler needs to recall, the car is just out of warranty at 37,000. Otherwise, this (our second jeep) has been great.

Summary:

The new Cherokee, a big step in the right direction

Faults:

No problems at all, just had the oil changed at 20.000 and 40.000 km and that is it.

So instead of seeing the dealer 3 to 4 times a year with all kind of problems (with my old Cherokee), I only see them every 9 months for an oil change.

General Comments:

After owning a 1998 Cherokee diesel, we bought the new Cherokee CRD.

The 2002 Cherokee is a totally different SUV compared to the 1998 model, it is a much smoother drive and the new engine is much more powerfulll.

Also the 2002 model is much bigger, you sit much higher and this gives you a better look on the road ahead.

The 2002 model drives in a straight line without any corrections and it corners much better.

To be honest, my wife never liked to drive the 1998 Cherokee, but she loves to drive the new one and so do I.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, Rob here from Australia.

Yes the new Cherokee is a little beauty, I ordered one last week and can't wait to drive it home.
