Summary:

It's a Jeep thing... but an expensive Jeep thing

Faults:

Heater and AC unit went out at 64000, mechanic said problem was so common in this year of Jeep they made a repair kit for it.

Seat warmers went out at about the same time.

Leather seats in general wearing out.

Makes funny grinding sound on turns.

Now leaking antifreeze from who knows where at 94600 miles, have to fill it about twice a week.

CD player randomly gives error, tape player likes to spit out the tape, button that is suppose to change the cd changes the song.

Hood struts and hatch struts both worn.

Check gages light randomly comes on.

General Comments:

My first car was a 94 grand Cherokee, I loved that car and wish I never got rid of it, never gave me any problems, LOVED that car, this was the car the started my love for jeeps.

My 99 is a nice car, it has all the fancy stuff, beautiful inside and out, comfortable, powerful, great for off roading and bad weather, but this particular year seems to have a lot of mechanical problems, the luxury stuff its nice, but getting Jeep parts seems to be hard to find and expensive, the value doesn't seem to keep well either, I've only owned it 1 year and 1/2 and I owe almost twice what its worth. If your love for jeeps is enough to go through all the repair costs it's a great car, but it's a little much for a young student, and unfortunately I plan on replacing it with a Civic.

I actually own a 99 jeep limited and a 1997 honda civic. I have had the jeep in the shop about 12 times since I bought it in 2002 for various jeep problems. I bought the civic new and it has only been to the mechanic for an exhaust system and brakes and it has around 200,000 miles. Good decision to go with the Honda.

Summary:

Nice

Faults:

Well this is my first jeep and I've put roughly 6,000 miles on it. I read a few of the other reviews and noticed some similarites. First, my headlights are also crusted up on the inside. But the real problem I care about is when I try to start it, it takes a solid 5-8 seconds to fire up. After that she runs just fine. Anyone know why this happens and if it's a tell tale sign of trouble to come?

Just turn the power on for about 5 seconds, then it will start right up.

Summary:

This SUV is costly, but reliable

Faults:

I have had problems with the transmission (85000), drivers side tail light (87000) and the rear A frame (71000).

General Comments:

My transmission started slipping around 85000 miles and turned out to be the tranny pump (power train warranty). Next the tail lights failed on a gradual scale and turns out all grounds as well as power were there. Finally I found out that the ground was insufficient (repair ground connection in the light socket) for the parking lights and the brake lights to illuminate at the same time. My rear A frame wore out and was causing a clunking noise easy fix was to replace the A frame (easy).

This is a good all around SUV. wished it was 4x4, but does extremely well anyway. I haven't had very many problems with it compared to how many miles I have put on it. it has been wrecked once, don't about 2500.00 to the passenger fender and bumper cover.
