After I got the rotors replaced, on guarantee, the effect of shaking steering wheel was gone.
Garage people said it was a bad steel and got too hot and the rotors bent so that there was no parallel surfaces for the brakes, and hence the shaking of the steering wheel when pressing on the brakes on high speeds.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee sport and when it was 3 mos old with 18,000 miles I had to get the engine replaced. A year later I'm dealing with the check engine light..UGH!!

I bought a used 2001 GC Laredo, and after I had it for about 3 weeks, I noticed a whining noise coming from the front wheels, replaced brake pads.. was OK for about 2 weeks, and then started having vibrating in steering.. and noises like crazy when I brake.. The auto had 63k miles and only had a 30 day warranty on it.. I am stuck.. being a person who had some negative credit in the past makes me very vulnerable to these types of problems.. no warranty.. no money. I wish I had read some of these comments earlier. As bad luck would have it, just today the malfunction light came on, and now it is really difficult to get started. I guess it is really true to the saying "Live and Learn".

This is in reply to the person with the seat rocking and metal breaking.. (yes I know I took a while :) ) this has happened with our Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001, but it is three bolts. Has anyone had this problem and have the dealers done anything about it?
Thanks in advance.

I recently purchased a used 2001 JGCL from a dealer and have had soooo many problems. I am not having any luck repairing the thing. I am disabled and on a limited income and THOUGHT I was purchasing a quality used vehicle and am now stuck with the vehicle. I get the impression that the various repairs that I have been complaining about where already known, i.e. repeat transmission problems, and that I am just getting the runaround by both the dealer and the Jeep repair shop. Please, if anyone out there can help, please contact me.

I bought a 2001 Grand Jeep Cherokee Limited V8 one year ago and it's been in the shop twice (and now needs to go back for several small repairs). The power motor for the driver's side window was replaced ($350), and after one very brief 4x4 foray in Utah the power steering had to be replaced ($550). Luckily I haven't had anything major go wrong with it yet, but I'm not confident that it won't happen and looking to trade it in for a Honda even though I'll be upside down. I originally bought this for a multi-use vehicle, but have now decided I can't afford . This was the American car industries last chance to prove itself with me and I'm very disappointed.

2001 Jeep CG Laredo: Looking at the comments above, several of you guys mentioned you have had problems with transmissions. My Transmission, is starting to slip, only really when I come to a complete stop and take off, it seems not to catch gear. If anyone could tell about any experiences they have had with sort of problem, please let me know.

To the guy who had the power window go out. I have a 2001 JGC Laredo and both front power windows went out on me over the last two years. Luckily the driver side went out a week or two before it started raining. Anyways, my advise for anyone who has their window go out is to buy a rebuilt power window regulator and replace it yourself. I am no mechanic, but it's not that hard and can be done in less than an hour. I bought my rebuilt ones for $50-70. This is a known problem with the jeep and whoever is rebuilding these regulators is making a killing on ebay.
Just my 2 cents...

My drivers seat on a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo also started rocking and I too discovered the metal had actually torn away from around the mounting bolt under the seat. Has anyone had luck with a dealer in fixing this problem?

Jeep Gr Cherok Ltd 01 - We have the same seat problem. Drivers seat Metal bracket on left side sheared in half at around 55K miles. Dealer says to replace entire seat and seat tracks... over $1,000. Local shop says rewelding won't hold... not sure if they just don't want the liability. Please let me know if anyone has other idea.

The front driver's seat with broken bracket at the bolt base seem to be a common problem with the 2001 jeep. I too have the same problem I thought that it was a problem with the seat. I was wrong. The bolt base is the concern. The seats are very fragile. After have the car for 10K I complained to the the dealer that it was very uncomfortable and was already starting to sag. The dealer told me that "it was regular wear and tear". I guess the bolt base tearing away is just a part of the package. The car is designed for 100 lb driver, unfortunately my does not drive it anymore, so I'm stuck. I do not want to discuss the brakes other than say it's terrible!!!

I have a 2001 Grand Jeep Cherokee Limited and with only 122,000 miles (not driven hard) the transmission just went out. I complained when I first purchased it to the dealer, but they claimed they couldn't find anything wrong. It would shift hard at times and if you started it and put into gear real fast for a quick take off, it be very slow at engaging into gear. I have also had other various issues (drivers window motor, drivers seat, steering gear box, etc) but this transmission is the worst yet. Especially when I complained about it while it was still under warranty. I probably won't be buying another especially with gas prices what they are today.

I bought a 2000 GGCL, my first purchase of a nice SUV, currently 80k miles.
I've had to replace 3 power window motors, I've done them all myself.
The transmission is shifting hard, almost redlines some times before shifting. A transmission flush did not fix it, I've had seals replaced on the transmission @44k miles.
All the locks at one point have made "clunking" noises, the rear hatch lock has been stuck "locked" for almost a year. My brother's high school basketball coach has the exact same jeep, year and everything and has the exact same window and lock problem.
