1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 Liter 6 cylinder from North America
First car? Need some room? Grand Cherokee should be near the top of your list!
I have not have many things go wrong with this car at all. There has been a flat tire and a leaky radiator at 68,000 miles that was replaced in 3 days my a dealer, and that's about it!
This Jeep has been really great to me! I bought it with 45k on it and it now has 75k. It's black, and looks very ritsy when it gets waxed which is about weekly.
It's an all around great car, although I feel that Jeep could have put more than a 4 Liter in it, it tends to lug when you step on the pedal (it's really not the fastest in the herd).
We trust Jeep so much after this car that we just bought a new Wrangler also. I find that this car is too big for me anymore, being that my daughter moved out and all I have is a son, so we don't need the room, and I am probably looking into a Lexus ES.
I am looking for somthing faster, this Jeep is not something that you would want to get after a sports car, there is nothing sportsy about them. They do not have the greatest handling as you would expect, but you can still take some turns at semi-high speeds.
Right after I bought it in 1999, the prices on these dropped drastically, so watch out for the price drops too! I learned mine the hard way.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
