I have owned Jeep's since I graduated from college... the progression being Wrangler, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee Limited. All three were excellent cars. The first two lasted over 150K miles before parting with it to the enthusiast marketplace and my current Grand Cherokee Limited has over 240K miles! While I have have many maintenance issues, all were well within wear & tear expectations. I did have a transmission issue that was covered under an extended warranty and some trouble with the driver's side seat heater, but hey, if that's my only beef...

I agree with you and will never buy another jeep. They are just garbage on wheels, I have co-workers and friends whom owned jeeps and very few problems, but after they saw what I and others have gone through they got rid of them. Come on!!! a 2002 4.7Liter with the oil pan rusted to the point it leaked oil. That's just to name one!!! It only had 30K on it and was only driven to work. So far I'm up to 33 people that I talked out of getting another one of these junks.
It's your hard earned money...don't give it to Mopar...

It sounds to me as though you completely abused this car. A cam shaft going through the block and hitting the compressor? Sounds like it was more your fault than anything. My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 4.7L has been everything, but a problem. Oh and its not like Chrysler programmed the engine to blow up when your warranty expired. You just had some bad luck on that, you can defame Jeep for that.

Sadly, I wish I were beating on it, then I would understand why I had so many problems with it and I would understand why my co-workers had problems with theirs. I maintain mine better than most and it is strictly a tar buggy (I have a Honda ATV for the off-road stuff) This vehicle is like a ticking time bomb set to go off at any time. For those not having any problems, count your blessing, but at the first sign of problems sell it. Please understand that I'm trying to help by warning people... I have the receipts to prove it.
