I love the GC and would buy another, I just hope the problems are not going to follow me
I purchased this 2000 Jeep grand Cherokee limited with the v8 in june 2007. I also Have a 2001 GC and know what to expect for any problems to arise. I have had some luck so far. I hear a lot of problems with door locks, window regulators (my2001 just had that fixed) and lots of electrical. I would say the only problem I have came across was a whining sound from the front when I am at 55-70 mph. The sound is heard with the windows up and not pressing the gas. The dealer heard the noise and replaced the front axles, transfer case, bearing, and any other parts up front. The noise was still there, but not as loud. I have know idea what the noise is. I have never had 4x4 where my other one is 2x4. The other problem I am having that I have not heard any have yet is the Blend door problem. I am only getting heat on the one side. The dealer told me that it was a common problem, but not common enough to become a recall. To fix the problem they need to tear out the dash to get to these plastic doors that are broken. I was told it was a 900-1200 dollar job!!! I am glad that I have an extend warranty. any one else with this problem? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GC I purchased is a big jump in performance compaired to the 2001 GC with the in-line v6. The 2000 has the v8. The only thing I think is odd is the supercharger sounding noise I get. I was told it is normal???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
