Summary:

I do like it, I think so far, it has been one of my best vehicles

Faults:

I had intermittent problems with it stalling when trying to go step on gas a little more to pass or increase speed on the highway. I had a friend who is a mechanic look at the problem. The check engine light would come on and the car would would over rev. My friend hooked it up to the computer, and the reading stated a misfire in plug 1. We replaced all the spark plugs, and he had to clean out the gas line because it was rusted due to water in the gas. Therefore, the rusty pieces would break off and cause the misfire. He also replaced another part for it that I can't remember what it was at this time.

The seal on the driver's window is loose, and if I push it back in place, it's fine.

I also have the problem with the "honking" steering wheel, which is intermittent on my Jeep.

When I purchased it used, I lucked out, and the previous owner had replaced all the tires with Dunlop, and they seem to last pretty well. Thanks for the warning about the Wrangler tires.

I also have problems with uneven wear on the tires, I'm assuming from the calipers, which one mechanic told me could only be fixed at a dealership. Super.

General Comments:

But, I also think that it has lasted quite well for the mileage I put on it, and all in all has been a good vehicle. I don't know whether or not I will get a Jeep again, tho.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

The best thing since sliced bread!!!

Faults:

The heated seat was out when I purchased it and also so was the power-steering. The dealer were total jerks, but it was a Subaru dealer, so what can you expect.

Chrysler is fixing the seat under the recall and the dealer agreed to fix the steering.

General Comments:

I LOVE this car. I can't wait to get in it every day. It is the love of my life, let me tell you, I will never get rid of it. It rides like a dream.

And I just love smoking those little foreign cars.

I just can't tell you how amazing these cars are. This is our 9th Jeep and our 3rd Grand Cherokee. I cannot wait till I can purchase another.

Bought the 03'Overland in 07', learned about THE JEEP while valeting in Providence during college years.

Powerful, luxurious interior, great exterior lines... this is the best Jeep I've owned, and I've had 4 over 13 years.

Most people don't know the difference between the different levels of Jeeps... but this Overland is my pick.

Sucks gas... but it's a hell of a ride!

Summary:

Won't buy another Jeep Cherokee

Faults:

Leather interior splitting.

Hood shock went bad.

Hose clamp on transmission line came off and leaked.

Passenger side front window regulator broke.

Noise in rear in.

General Comments:

We baby this car and it has only 33,000 miles for a 2003.

We seldom use the passenger window and it broke.

We keep it in garage and interior leather splits.

We should buy American products, but is this the example of what we Americans are building? Sloppy craftmanship.

Bought a used 2003 Grand Cherokee. Blend door went in less than a year of owning it (was only 3 years old at the time). Front passenger window regulator went, leather interior is also splitting, hood shock went, there are ALWAYS noises! Great looking vehicle, too bad so many things go wrong. Won't buy another.
