1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7L V8 from North America
The car really is crap! Stay away from it!
First off I bought the car to go off road with the new quadra-drive 4wd system in it. The first time I took it off-road the car got stuck. It would not move (the transfer case in the 4bi broke).
The brakes are excellent. Just the sudden jolt after you stop (had to be taken in twice). Drive line had to be replaced.
Had to replace the rear folding seat because it would not latch into place when you would put the seat back to normal.
The acceleration of this car is awesome! I never had a car that was this fast.
Have to quench its thirst for gas every three days.
Very comfortable. The leather seats are glove soft.
Enough luxury features to rival a Lexus.
Go anywhere do anything 4X4 (except for that one time).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Currently Own a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Thank God I bought an extended warranty or I would be in the poor house now! The only thing I regret is trading in my 93 Lexus Es300 for this piece of junk, please do not compare the Lexus to a Jeep as the leather, and woodgrain in the Jeep look so cheap and are. Toyota/ Lexus make excellent reliable vehicles and as soon as I pay my Jeep off enough I will return to them! For when I traded the 93 Lexus I still received a $8500 trade in value.
