2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Special Edition 4.0L I-6 from North America
4x4 capability and luxury
Recall for Engine Control Unit Spring 2004.
Windshield trim started to separate Spring 2004, fixed under warranty.
Squeaking/Rubbing noise while going over bumps late winter-Spring 2004, fixed under warranty.
Perfect size for 1 driver.
Easy to use controls.
Maintenance interval reminder along with vehicle information center integrated into overhead compass/temperature display.
4.0L I-6 could use more power, better design (similar to Chevy Trailblazer/GMC Envoy's 4.2L I-6)
Great Infinity Gold stereo, although it breaks up a bit while under power lines.
Handles wet and snowy weather with ease.
Brakes need to be much stronger, too weak of a braking system.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

We purchased a 2004 Grand Cherokee in August, 2003. In April, 2004 we had to have new brake rotors installed at approximately 7,000 miles. In October, 2004 at 10,000 miles new rotors were again installed because of pulsating when applying brakes. Will this have to be done every 3,000 miles with every oil change? And costing over $300 each time?! We may install heavy duty brakes if this happens again.
