2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 6 Cyliner from North America
Disappointed so far
Constant "tapping" noise while idling.
I just bought a 2003 Grand Cherokee with 39000 miles on it. I am very disappointed with the 6 cylinder performance; it feels like a small 4 cylinder engine. I hope the overhead computer showing gas mileage is wrong - it says I'm getting about 8.5 mpg. The main thing that concerns me is the constant engine "tapping" when idling... is this normal? I purchased a Chrysler warranty for it - I wonder if I'll be using it sooner than later...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 2003 Grand Cherokee with around 47 thousand miles on it. The reader says 18 mpg, and my 6 cylinder engine, although not high performance, definitely feels more powerful than a 4 cylinder engine. I'm sorry to say, but whoever you bought it from abused the poor thing beyond cruelty. I've owned mine since it came out around 2003. With normal maintenance and not "flooring it" (for lack of better vocabulary), it's made a great vehicle.

Don't buy a jeep if mileage is an issue. They just like to be push hard. I service it myself, and after changing 200 $ of suspension bushings, it just ride like a dream. Potholes eater thanks to solid structure.
