Lovely looking repair-pig
1st week of ownership, "check engine" light came on, dealer diagnosed "transmission malfunction" (unable to figure out what problem is).
Tires constantly blowing out side-walls, still have good tread wear left.
Drove vehicle about 5 miles, would not start 5 minutes later, flickered "service elec. brake sys." on info center, needed new battery.
Pulsing, surging, odd shifts, vibration from transmission, may be torque converter failing, $1200 to fix...
Had to re-place brake pads & rotors 2 times in 30k miles.
I love the design of this year of Grand Cherokee, plenty of power for a v-6, always get compliments on it, I have taken it through almost a foot of snow, dragging bumpers, under-carriage & never spun out, or got stuck!
I love the Boston sound system, ultra crisp sound.
Quiet, smooth ride.
Over-all I like this vehicle, except she does like expensive parts, wish it were like my 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo, over 245,000 miles & still going, only needed regular oil changes, brakes & tires...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
