Summary:

A very dependable vehicle, rotors aren't

Faults:

My front left brake rotor warped at 26,000 miles. The small struts that keep the hood open have gone bad only 2 years after manufacture date.

General Comments:

I really enjoy this vehicle. It is fun to drive and is quite comfortable and stylish. Unfortunately the rotors for this make and model are a hassle.

Summary:

The Chicks dig it, but the wallet doesn't

Faults:

My Left Rear locking mechanism grinds. It works sometimes, but always grinds. Dealer says 200 Dollars.

My turn signals and hazards went out. Checked fuses and relays. Took it to dealer they said there was nothing wrong with it. I checked and they worked, for about 10 hours. Dealer charged me 40 dollars for a diagnostic. After much earchewing at the dealership I went home and inspected myself. Found loose wire in wiring harnass. Dealership wanted to charge me another 40 dollars for another diagnostic. The service sucked!

General Comments:

I like my Jeep it handles great. I've never had any brake problems except worn pads. It is an off road dream. THe electrical system could use some more reliability.

Summary:

Too many brake and transmission problems!

Faults:

10,000 miles - warped brake rotors repaired/replaced.

22,000 miles - warped brake rotors repaired/replaced.

38,000 miles - warped brake rotors repaired/replaced, transmission won't shift into 3rd gear in cold weather.

52,000 miles - warped brake rotors repaired/replaced, transmission still won't shift into 3rd gear in cold weather.

65,000 miles - warped brake rotors repaired/replaced, same transmission problem, dealer suggests a rebuild at a cost of $2,300.

51,000 miles - rear axle seal leak - repaired/replaced, transmission problem persists.

General Comments:

No one can diagnose the transmission problem, not even the dealer that suggested a rebuild at $2,300. The constant brake problems are so annoying that I'll never buy another Jeep or Chrysler problem. They need to find a new vendor for their brake system. With the F package of leather seats, sunroof, etc., it's the most comfortable SUV for the price, but I won't buy another Jeep.

I bought my 2000 Jeep Laredo because I totaled a 1999 Sebring convertible (which I had absolutely no problems with in 3 years), and suddenly felt uncomfortable in a smaller car. Ever since I've felt nothing, but uncomfortable! In the last 8 months I've replaced the front brake pads twice and the rotors once, along with the back brake pads once, and had the rotors re-surfaced once. I've replaced the serpentine belt, and had the back windshield wiper fixed, not to mention a new battery. My latest disasters that still remain un-fixed include an electrical problem with my rear brake lights, and my transmission not wanting to shift into 3rd gear in cold weather. I feel like I've been ripped off!! I've never had so many problems with a car ever!! Do these manufactures care at all that we've spent our hard earned money on piece of crap Jeeps? Apparently not...

Summary:

Too many problems for a high end car

Faults:

Front ABS sensor failed - 17k

Front driver seat heating pad failed - 20k

Front two rotors warped - 24k

Rear left passenger door locking system failed 23k

Rear differential noise on turning (fixed twice now back again) 14k, 20k and 29k.

General Comments:

A very comfortable car to drive, it can pull a trailer, climb hills, eat up motorway miles, turn heads and offer safety for the kids. But it leaves me worried, and never sure what will break next. So a warranty is a must.

Summary:

A luxury SUV with power if you need it

Faults:

None.

General Comments:

Had a 1998 Jeep that was totaled. This 2000 model cleaned up a lot of the small issues I had with the previous Jeep.

Everyone that has been in my car has liked it. It drives well and is comfortable on long trips.

Missing in action: There is no place in the front of the vehicle to tie down my kayak. I have to fish a line through the grille which is plastic.
