2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 inline 6 from North America
Valve cover, coil pack, front drive shaft joint.
I use to own a 93 Grand Cherokee, which I loved to death till a NJ state trooper hit it while it was parked and bam no more jeep. I wanted another Jeep, but school got in the way and now I have finally bought another one.
The power is decent for a 4.0 and the MPG is decent. I've been getting 19.5 MPG (10% city 90% highway).
The leather seats are nice and are heated. The driver and the passenger side seat brackets are cracked (common flaw).
It rides decent on the highway at 75 mph. Wind noise is on the lower side, which surprised me coming out of an Infiniti.
The radio is good (Infinity upgraded audio system) even though it has a blown rear door speaker.
I picked it up for a steal at $1500. They thought the motor was blown and it just needed a tune up and a coil pack. I call that a score in my book.
But overall these seem to be a decent used SUV on the market. Parts are cheap and are everywhere.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

164000. The front drive shaft CV joint starting making an awful noise, so I removed the front drive shaft till I can rebuild it or buy a new one.

170K, the steering box is starting to let go. I ordered a new one and I'm waiting to get it installed. The motor has a lifter tick now which is common in the 4.0. Other than that it's fine still.

174500 update. I had to have the trans replaced. It lost a snap ring from somewhere from deep inside that would cause it in reverse to slip out of gear and it would sound like a garbage disposal when it would slip back in. So a newer used trans for $700 was installed.
