2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.7 V6 from North America
OK car, but consider it as having a higher frequency of issues for its first year model run
Trans shifter registers PRND sometimes, and throws a TCM code.
Heater fan speed selector is a hit/miss; mostly a miss.
Radio antenna/reception drops out.
Expensive repair parts.
2005 model has underside, exterior spare tire mount.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

At 75k I got PRND lights and erratic shifting... I dismantled the shifter and cleaned the contact board with electrical cleaner, reassembled, and did trans oil change. Also disconnected the battery for 15 minutes to have the shift control unit reset itself... it fixed the PRND matter. Haven't had it again for 3k miles now.

Thank you for this information. I have a used 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with a 3.7 / V6 engine; two weeks ago it started doing exactly this. My mechanic replaced the rear wheel "sensors" saying this would fix the issue; worked for a "day", and now I'm dealing with the PRND lights and again the erratic shifting. I will use your comments to take back to my mechanic and hopefully this will eliminate my issues (thank you!).
