2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 litre petrol from Australia and New Zealand
I purchased a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo in 2008, it had 62000 km's.
As I drove it from the dealer, I noticed brake squeaking and shifting left. Then as I hit the freeway, I sensed the truck moving left and vibrating as I hit the brakes.
The engine light turns on intermittently, and my fuel gauge is out of calibration. As soon as I hit quarter tank and 110km's to empty, I break down out of fuel.
A respectable garage in Australia told me to get the brakes changed, which I did, and it did not fix the problem. I returned to be told I need a wheel alignment and new tyres. I did, and the problem returned soon after. Now they tell me to re-align the steering column, replace the bushes, new brakes and new tyres again.
The engine light diagnosis pointed to a new fuel filter and service - again!
The engine has a ticking noise at start up, it is sluggish after new spark plugs and fuel filter.
What a waste of good looks on this truck, and can't wait to replace it.
I have had a VW Transporter van for 12 years, never had problems like this.
Stay away from Jeep.
