2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo from North America
Good looks, but a headache
Bad noisy brakes.
Check engine light on/off/on...
Gas mileage (11 MPG!).
I have a 2002 JDC Laredo with 57k on it.
The squeaking brake noise is driving me crazy. 7+ visit to the dealer, changed axles, machined rotors, still the same; the faster I drive, the louder the noise gets! And the insulation on this car is POOR! I have to turn the stereo way up not to be annoyed by the wind noise (and brake noise!).
On top of everything else, the gas mileage is 11 miles/gallon (and no I don't have a V8, it's a small engine 6 cylinder).
The bottom line: JGC has nothing but good looks, and it's not worth the headache...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You were only getting 11 MPG on a V6?! Sounds like you did a lot of city driving. That truck should get between 18-20 MPG. Look it up on fueleconomy.org. Also sounds like a fuel filter issue or some kind of fuel problem. You should get that looked at.
