2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7 V8 from North America
I'm going to continue driving this 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee into the ground
Heater core: where the hose attaches was starting to seep coolant.
Fuel Pump: Was making a squeaking noise whilst operating. When ignition turned on, the priming was becoming nosier gradually. Affects highway performance too.
This is the sports car of SUVs.
The 4.7 V8 mated with the 5 spd automatic transmission (added mid year manufacture) is great for performance and fuel economy where 28 mpg highway is attainable. I'm averaging 21 mixed driving! Plenty of power for passing and towing. Luckily mine was not towed with, thus allowing for more reliable drive train.
Nice and tight turning radius making it very maneuverable in a parking lot.
Transfer case allows you to choose between 2WD, 4HI, 4FULLTIME NEUTRAL 4LOW.
Interior is spacious for mid size SUV.
The ride is bouncy and unsettled on uneven roads.
Prices for parts and repair can be very expensive!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
