2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland V8 4.7HO from North America
Great car, but has some defects
I have a 2003 Grand Cherokee Overland. Bought it in 2006 with 26,000 miles. Now I have 78,000 miles.
I have changed the front passenger and driver side window regulators. This is an easy fix, do it yourself. I changed the power steering pump last year in June, and now it just went out again. I did it myself and bought the pump at autozone with lifetime warranty. So this second fix will be free just takes away a little free time.
Now to the big stuff. Two months ago my blend doors went out. I fixed it at my local Jeep dealer. They were kind enough to tell me they had a 15% off coupon on their website for cars with over 70k miles. The blend doors ended up costing me $970. Finally went through the stock pair of tires at 78k and ordered new ones.
The past few days my car wasn't shifting correctly and was stuttering as a few of you have said. It's the valve body inter transmission. Even though they don't have the coupon any more they gave me 15% off and it's gonna be $962. Once I get the car back I have to go put on the new tires. Hopefully that's it, I wanna drive this thing into the ground.
The Overland is very fast and has lots of power. There is nothing like Jeep seats and the comfort they provide. I have had problems with it, but then again what car doesn't have problems. It just the luck of the draw. The Jeep do have a few problems that are prevalent in them, so before buying do some research.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
