2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 from North America
BRAKES, BRAKES, BRAKES, AND BRAKES, FOUR SETS TO GO 70,000 MILES!
The windows regulators broke.
This was a lot of expense and not covered by the warranty. I paid extra for the 100,000 mile warranty, and it never seemed to fix anything that went wrong.
The engine hesitated going up hills. Towards the end, just before I traded it in, the gas mileage and performance were terrible.
The real shock was the trade in value. I paid $28,000 dollars and took excellent care of the car, always parking it away from other cars so I wouldn't get dings on it, kept up on all the maintenance, it was like new, and I was offered only $7,500 from several dealers.
In the beginning I loved the Jeep, but was very disappointed in the quality overall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would recommend slowly moving into aftermarket parts if anything goes wrong.
Brakes; my friend was going through dealer brakes like Skittles... that's until he got good aftermarket ones that ran him about $60 extra, but since that change, braking has improved, and he has yet to replace them.
You can't always rely on what the dealers say... well you can't rely on them period, unless you know them AND trust them.
