1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 5.9 V8 from North America
Great when running properly
Where do I start? I have two of these silly things. What was I thinking? Both are 1998 Limiteds. One is a 5.9 and the other is a regular 5.2. Major problems with both.
Bad paint problems on the 5.9. The paint it badly faded on the hood louvers and on the grille... very disappointing especially when it happens around 55000 miles.
The 5.9 has left me stranded before because of a bad relay which cuts fuel off to the vehicle do to an accident, but there was no accident!
Constant problems with the axles in both of the Jeeps.
You name it and it has happened to the 5.2 Jeep.
In both the 5.9 and the 5.2 the heated seats work for about a week after being replaced. I have done that numerous times... I quit, I will just deal with a cold butt!
Check engine lights are a common thing... many transmission problems in both Jeeps.
In both Jeeps the rear windows love to mysteriously roll down.
Jeep dealers are worthless!...can't ever fix anything the first time. I am glad that I have extended warranty or else I would have paid for the Jeeps twice.
Both Jeeps perform great. Especially the 5.9, loads of torque!
Both of these Jeeps tow extremly well. I have a 21' car hauler and can pull cars great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Transmission issues are fairly common in Jeeps, and can often be traced back to service stations failing to use the proper additive...
