2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 6 cylinder from North America
Too many problems
We have had numerous door lock problems as well as the ever present brake problems that so many other jeep owners have.
The most recent problem is the grand daddy of them all. The computer brain has been replaced twice in six weeks along with all the computer modules. Most all wires have been traced. Still all the dash warning lights will come on, all gages either jump or just go dead. After six weeks the dealer has called uncle. They cannot find the short. So the vehicle is usless at this point.
Emails to Chrysler just fall on deaf ears. $32,000 vehicle and it is done before 100,000 miles. No wonder the foreign cars have taken over. And this vehicle has never missed a service and has always had all repairs done at a Jeep dealership.
Another problem with the Jeep is that it would go through a battery every two years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My 2000 Grand Cherokee Jeep Laredo is a lemon. I have had constant mechanical issues for years.
For the last 3 years, a mysterious coolant leak has caused me to put water/coolant in about every 100 miles. Now oil pressure is dropping to about zero when I come to a stop sign or slow way down.
Running brake lights, left side, have quit working numerous times - and bulbs have been replaced over and over - until I found that the contacts in the bulb socket area needed to be adjusted.
Both back door locks quit working years ago, causing me to have to turn around and manually move levers.
Back hatch has crashed down numerous times, with repairs.
Front hood refuses to stay up.
Plastic fan melted last year (years before, we were reimbursed for a fan/shroud problem).
My vehicle now has 134,000 miles, but I dread any trip over 20 miles...
