Overall it is a really nice car, it rides like a true luxury car, and will go almost anywhere.
In my opinion it has the best 4-wheel drive system ever designed, even better than the new computer controlled systems on new SUVs.
The leather and corduroy seats are very comfortable even for long trips.
The large windows and narrow pillars gave much better visibility than newer SUVs.
Overall it is a great car, and it is fun to drive. It is amazing how many people compliment the car. Several have even tried to buy it!
The only real negative is that it gets only 13 miles per gallon on the highway.
Since the model was discontinued over a decade ago parts are getting harder to find, as are mechanics who know how to work on them.
They are much tougher than the newer plastic SUVs. I am certain that as long as parts are available somewhere there will be Grand Wagoneers rolling down the road long after most newer Jeeps have gone to the junkyard.
