1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Inline 6 cylinder from North America
Overly satisfied, would recommend, and buy again
The driver's door window functions have ceased. There was a time when the window worked after a brief pause, but now the window doesn't budge. This might be a little more involved than trying to tear things apart myself.
Brake lights went out just recently. However, fixing them was quite easy, especially after reviewing this site. Getting the tail light assembly off is two screws only, and the light bulbs are set into sockets, which are easily removed. WalMart had the right replacement bulbs. After tweaking the ground contacts, the lights came on... but before I had success, the fuse blew (the middle light above the tailgate went out which was the clue). The blue fuse (15) was the very first fuse along the bottom row on the left... easily replaced, and lights worked just fine thereafter.
Always having to adjust rear door seals. I plan on getting some decent glue or epoxy to set them in place.
Overall, satisfied with the vehicle. It was purchased last year (March) from CarMax in Irvine, CA, with about 50000 miles. We (family of four) immediately took off to North Carolina in it. Two weeks and 5000+ miles later, the car performed without a single hitch. There was a rock tossed up from a passing truck into the windshield, but CarMax were already going to (and did) replace the windshield due to an existing crack.
It's been a year now, and we have added another 50,000 miles to the vehicle. The only complaint other than brake lights and window would be the mileage... it likes its gasoline. CA to NC and back we averaged 19 miles to the gallon, just before the prices skyrocketed last year. I would like better mileage, especially in city driving, but it amounts to habits and where we go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
