1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2 from North America
Powerful, Elegant, Very Electronic, Yet Luxurious
I haven't owned my Limited 5.2 for long, but bought it with a few minor issues that were unknown at time of purchase.
Once it gets to about the half tank area the gas gage goes out of whack, shooting from empty to half to full, turning the fuel indicator on and off, until it gets to just a little below the half tank range and then it works again. I'm thinking it's a float switch, but hoping it's electrical or something with the gage.
Within the past day I got in my jeep to go to work and it started beeping at me and telling me my coolant was low. When I went to fill it however it was anything but low. But once I got it again and started the vehicle the warning message and beeping had gone away, which makes me think there's some sort of electrical problem with my gages or something.
Another annoyance is the leaking sunroof. When I first bought my jeep it was sunny out so I couldn't tell if there was any issues with it. But after a day of heavy ran I got into my vehicle only to sit in a small puddle of water, only on the drivers side seat too! If it rains enough for a long enough period of time it begins to soak the entire surrounding area of the sunroof and begins dripping on other places of the vehicle as well. I'm hoping replaces the weather stripping will help.
I enjoy my limited.
I love the leather seats and the heated seat options.
The stock stereo in it is surprisingly decent, and I especially love the dashboard equalizer and skip and volume features on the steering wheel.
Cruise Control Feature is great!
Heater works great, with an awesome temperature setting feature.
It has great handling, except sharp corners because of its all time 4wd feature.
Surprisingly for a V8 it seems to handle gas relatively well. Although with it's faulty gas gage I try not to let it get low.
It has a lot of get up and go!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
