1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer V8 from North America
American big at it's best
Just bought this baby last week. It's near mint condition, beautiful inside and out.
Am reading these reviews to get a sense of what I'm in for.
Right now the only issue is that it seems like it could use a tune up.
All speakers are blown, stereo is junk. I'll replace it soon, but that's no big surprise or big deal.
I've already got an old '71 Scout and two Landcruisers so that I suddenly have a Jeep is sort of a surprise. Landcruiser owners typically sneer at Jeeps and vice versa. But I've always admired the big old full size Jeeps and this one came up for sale in my little town and I couldn't resist. I was actually planning to buy a new FJ Cruiser to fulfill my need for a "real car" i.e. something with heat, a roof, and that one could imagine going on a long road trip in. I'm thinking and hoping that this '91 Grand Waggoner is going to fill the bill just fine thank you, and leave me with thousands of dollars. I paid a pretty good bit for it, but bought it from the original owner, who kept it at a second home and always in the garage. Am not looking forward to learning a whole new "language" though in learning about it's quirks and problems, but that’s why I'm reading this web site today. Thanks everybody for your tips and insight.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I grew up driving these - my parents' favorite type of car. We mostly had excellent luck with them, though out of a series of about 6 over the years, one was a horrible lemon with electrical problems, and of course they all rusted away eventually.
Good luck at the gas pump however. I drove a 1982 Grand Wagoneer from St. Louis to New York a couple of times and found it could have sure used an overdrive - geared a bit too low for road trips. Of course that was in the days of $1.00/gallon gas. I loved having the thing in Upstate New York though - I could drive in the worst snowstorms!
