First year of ownership2001
Most recent year of ownership2003
Engine and transmission 4.0 Automatic
Distance when acquired0 miles
Most recent distance35000 miles
Previous carBuick Electra

Summary:

Nice looking vehicle wiht some serious limitations for the money

Faults:

Front brake rotors warped and were replaced at my insistence at 2000 miles.

Factory recall for manifold heat shield in 2002.

OEM Goodyear Wranglers were horrible in wet weather and did not wear well. They were replaced at 28,000 with good mix of city and interstate miles.

Cannot get enough leg room in front driver's seat.

General Comments:

The 4.0 is under powered for interstate driving.

The car rides well, but is somewhat noisy.

The leg room issue for driver comfort may preclude me from purchasing another Grand Cherokee. I cant drive this car for more than two hours even wiht the fully adjsutable power seats.

Previous carVolvo 850

Summary:

I was shocked at the cost for the 30,000 miles service

Faults:

The power mirror on the driver's side often loses its adjustment and points toward ground when the car door is opened with the remote.

Vibration while braking.

Fuel gauge reads incorrectly, showing a greater amount of fuel than is actually in the tank.

Growl heard in front end while turning right.

Extremely long crank time to start the engine.

General Comments:

I researched the following technical service bulletins on Alldata.com for my vehicle and brought the list to the Jeep dealer.

The dealer told me that the mirror points to ground because I do not know how to program the mirror correctly, so they did it for me. However, that did not solve the problem and the memory only holds intermittently, and at times the drivers side mirror still points to the ground. I cannot find a TSB regarding the mirror memory problem, although there should be one as there are other complaints.

There was a technical service bulletin #05-005-01A issued Sept. 2001 regarding brake pulsation. At 23,000 miles, the dealer replaced the front brake calipers and rotors free of charge.

The dealer replaced the fuel sending unit free of charge to correct the incorrect fuel gauge reading. The dealer said there is a TSB on that, but I do not see it on the Alldata listing.

There was a technical service bulletin #19-06-00 issued Sept. 2000 for front end growl or honk in right turns. Dealer replaced the steering gear box free of charge per TSB at 24,000 miles.

The was a technical service bulletin #14-002-01 issued May 2001 for the fuel pump - Long cranking time to start engine. Dealer replaced the fuel pump at 24,000 miles, free of charge.

Summary:

A great comfy stylish 4X4

Faults:

According to the dealer something on the rear suspension was worn so they replaced it under warranty on its first service.

General Comments:

This is my second Grand Cherokee and is a vast improvement on the first model. I still consider this car to be an excellent alternative to the ultimate 4x4, the Range Rover, with the added attraction of a $20k saving!

If Chrysler would only get the brakes sharpened then this would be about as good as it gets for the money.
