2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee from North America
You definitely can't judge a book by its cover, the car looks great everything else is bad
The radiator thermostat housing had to be replaced because it was warped.
The car looks great and drives well in good weather and good roads. In bad weather or tough driving conditions it has the stopping response of a supertanker. Easy to wipe out and loose control.
The back seats have a nominal amount of leg room. They don't recline at all and the position is not comfortable for any ride over 15 or 20 minutes.
I have an Odyssey that is almost 10 years older with 100,000 more miles. We got the Jeep as a replacement family car meaning to replace the Odyssey with a smaller car. We still have the Odyssey because the Jeep is not comfortable at all for family rides and is not reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I am curious why the owner would have purchased the car if it was uncomfortable for them - isn't that was a test drive is for? I do not feel the car simply becomes more uncomfortable over time; it either is or is not comfortable to the driver/passengers. This review, to me, shows someone that does not test drive a new purchase very well.

The only problem you had is the thermostat housing was bad (a small $40 part)... and you call it an unreliable vehicle?
