1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 from North America
Has been good for me for 150,000 miles
The major problem I have had is the vagueness of the steering. This was inspected many times without finding anything wrong. I had always used the Goodyear tires and when I switched to Bridgestones the problem went away. No more Goodyears for me.
The transmission has been serviced regularly and works fine most of the time except that sometimes it feels like the speed sensor is not working properly.
On the whole the vehicle has been very reliable. The service costs seem very high, but there is not much alternative. Reliability seems to a function of following the service requirements.
I like the comfort and the higher driving position. I also tow an enclosed trailer for which the 4.0 is marginal on power. I switch off the overdrive for towing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
