2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4.7L from North America
Best value in an SUV anywhere!
One tire pressure sensor failed at 77,000.
What every 1999-2004 Grand Cherokee owner should know is that at some point the window regulators will fail and are not a cheap fix.
My 2002 Laredo had three regulators fail in 5 months and each was about a $130.
My 2002 has 74,000 miles with a 4.0L and regular oil changes. Never a problem at all and runs like new.
My 2004 Overland was purchased to tow my trailer, and has 80,000 well maintained miles on it without a problem at all. Very powerful 4.7L Daimler motor that is as bullet proof as the 4.0L in my Laredo.
I've owned 4 Grand Cherokees since 1997, all were 4.0L except the Overland. My 1997 was sold with 180,000 miles, and my 1998 sold with 160,000, and both were running like swiss watches.
These vehicles retain their value better than any other SUV on the planet!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with your statement pertaining the great reliability of the 4.0L inline 6's, however... the moment you claimed that these SUV's retain value better than any other in the world made me laugh uncontrollably... they really don't, as I can currently get a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 with decent mileage for approximately 4-6.000 thousand dollars... try buying ANY 2004 Toyota or Honda SUV for that price, you will not find one. Thus your claim is incorrect.
