2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L from North America
This is not A JEEP, it seems more like a Dodge
At 5,000 miles the air conditioning failed.
At 8,000 miles the transmission linkage failed.
At 10,000 miles the engine light came on every time the gas tank was filled.
At 11,000 miles the sunroof trim fell off.
At 12,000 miles I received a recall concerning the leaf accumulating problem.
At 15,000 miles both the hood and lift-gate hydraulic lift arms failed.
At 20,000 miles the transmission shift linkage failed again.
At 40,000 miles both the drivers and passengers power window system failed, within minutes of each other.
The automobile was not cheap when purchased and has been a hassle to maintain. The warranty offered was for 3 years or 36,000 miles. At the time of purchase the dealership was never ending trying to sell me an extended warranty. As if they new something I have only now found out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

For the A/C, turn it off when the car is off. This puts less of a strain on the car and the A/C compressor.
The Tranny, don't drive it like a Ferrari or a Porsche, because it will break.
As for the engine light on after gas fill-ups. Use a better quality gas (from a better station), and make sure the cap is on good and tight.

Referring to your title "This is not A JEEP, it seems more like a Dodge" Jeep is made by chrysler which also makes dodge and plymouth, so your Jeep doesn't just seem like a dodge, it is a Dodge.
