1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L from North America
Definitely a good car
Radiator upper hose blew at 68K miles. I replaced by myself, cheap!.
Front rotors were warped, replaced at 70K miles. I replaced by myself too!.
Air Conditioner evaporator was leaking and required to be replaced, my mechanic charged $ 750 (parts & labor).
Catalytic converter replaced at 80K, $125 (not original).
Air Conditioner evaporator drain failed, it needed a new gasket to stop the leak inside the car on the passenger side floor.
CD player never worked fine (difficulties to eject disks).
FM radio used to lose the stations, I checked the antenna and it was OK so I replaced the stereo.
Driver power seat motor is loosing power, it looks like it will die one of these days.
Finally, the exhaust manifold cracked and needs to be replaced, very common in jeeps with the 4.0 L engine.
In general is a good car, very comfortable riding compared to other similar vehicles.
The engine itself is extremely strong and reliable.
Its very powerful, but not precisely with good gas mileage.
The interior is very nice and luxurious.
Very easy to fix, particularly the 4.0L.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
