I bought a 99' Jeep Grand Cherokee approximately 4 months ago. There is a noticeable clunk when coming to a complete stop. The rear end has a lot of grinding noise. I took it in and they told me it was the bearings. So, of course, they said they fixed the problem however $900 later and it still has the same noise. The tranny shifts down hard when accelerating. I fear taking it back to the dealership. Would not purchase vehicle again.

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Limited. I bought it in 1998 with about 50K on it. It now has 225K and all I have had to do to it is replace the water pump. I drive it 70 miles a day to and from work without a worry.
I would buy another Jeep tomorrow.

I bought my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited with 32,000 miles on it. Problems started immediately. Transmission clunk, stalling, brakes, etc. 30 months later still having problems. Transfer case replaced, rotors replaced, wheel bearings replaced, transfer case again, rear-end howling, fan clutch replaced, ac/heater fan module replaced & going out again. Over $7000.00 in repairs in two and a half years.
95% of my driving is highway. I'm not hard on this vehicle. I maintain it constantly. During the warranty period dealer notated complaints and promised help if problems worsened. Big lie! Expensive hunk of junk. Shop visits monthly. Would never buy Jeep product again.

I bought a 1999 Jeep Cherokee laredo about a year ago.
I have had problem with the front brake twice. Both time the car dealer ship has fixed the problem. Then just a week ago 3/10/04 the front brake started smoking, the same problems that had happen before. I was wounding could this be happening if the parking brake is to tight, or set. I have had some problem with the shifting in to reverse, but though it was the ground surface and my lead foot. Window motor as gone out twice also. I did find out that there is a recall on the brake. oov136 is the recall number affected units 637,973. I also found a phone number to contact 1-800-992-1997. I will be calling this number tomorrow. The jeep is in the shop as I write. I purchased the jeep in Roseville California at car max. Car max has treated me well with the repairs, but being the third time with the brake, any thing could happen. So far I have had no problem with the straight 6 engine.

I have a 99 Grand Cherokee Laredo that we purchased new. The transmission has always whined and shifted hard. The rotors and brakes were replaced about 2 times before 65,000 miles. The vehicle has been kept in great shape and looks almost new. The last year has been a constant stream of problems. Hood supports failed, radiator fan relay went out, water pump went out, axle problems, grinding in the transfer case, transfer case leaking, grinding in the differentials, etc, etc, etc. We wanted to keep this vehicle for a while, but it almost seems more economical to buy a new vehicle and make payments.

I bought my 2000 Grand Cherokee new and haven't had too many problems until this year (besides the numerous recalls). I just had to have something done to the back breaks and the water pump went bad, had to have the radiator flushed, front passenger door lock going bad and my back window regulator has gone out. I wanted to keep this vehicle, but believe it may be cheaper to just get rid of it. Should I be expecting many more problems? This vehicle only has 70000 miles on it and is in very good condition.
