1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 Limited 4.0 from UK and Ireland
A Jeep ain't cheap - but it's worth it
Rear lights cut out every now and then - I just wiggle the cable around every couple of months and they work fine.
Loose rubber trim around doors.
Heated river's mirror mists over and controls can stick.
Air conditioning gave up the ghost ages ago.
A few irritating electrical niggles haven't really detracted from what is overall a great 4x4.
It's got every luxury you could want - mine has optional power sunroof and CD stack - and performs pretty good. It's swift off the lights and you can sit on the motorway wafting along at 80 with the engine just ticking over at 1500 revs.
If there was one thing I'd change, I guess it'd be the fuel consumption - it averages out around 17mpg (although the computer did once read 21 - is this a record?) But then you can't go shopping for an American 4x4 and expect it to run on fresh air.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
