2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lorado 4.0 from North America
The Jeep can be better, but it does it's job
Brake lights don't work.
***Corrected by changing the light socket - $13.00 each*** NOTE: The socket has burnt markings on it.
Fuel Pump replacements
***Had to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. While at it, replaced the fuel filter as well.***
Door lock replacements (all doors)
***Went online to buy the OEM parts for less, and changed them myself. Problem is the cheap plastics Mopar uses. I saved a fortune doing the job myself!***
The Jeep Grand Cherokee runs well overall. Great traction in the snow. I've put over 102000 miles on my Jeep to date, and it still runs well. Just continue to do the maintenance, and it'll keep running. I use only synthetic motor oil (Mobil 1). Always keep changing the air filter. Change the spark plugs every 50k-75k miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If your brake and/or taillights go out, and you have burnt marks on the ring of the light holder rim, it's because the silver terminals on the black plastic back of the lens have lost their strength at pushing against the rim of the light socket when it's twisted in place. Pry up the silver terminals a bit, and scratch the carbon buildup off the ring of the light socket.
Save yourself hundreds of dollars. Maybe even apply a little conductive paste to the silver terminals to help with the connection.. Been there, and been there again...
