"We bought this 98 Laredo used, private party when it was 5 years old. Aside from routine maintenance, it has been the best vehicle we've ever owned. I can't brag enough about this old vehicle. It's getting tired now, but the 4 liter is still as strong as day one, not even the valve cover leaks! I'd own another one in a heartbeat!"

"Interior is in great condition. History of all/any repairs upon request. Back hatch and bumper need body work. Engine needs radiator, hose and compressor (for air conditioner). Has received oil changes every 3000 miles and only premium gas (93)."

"Overall, a great value... the leather seats are comfortable, the Jeep has a quiet ride, is smooth on the road, and the 4WD will get you through the snow in the winter... just wish the interior had a bit more to it in terms of style and technology features, but of course, this is 1994, not 2014. My Jeep is going on 20 years old and still runs like the day it was new (although I've only owned it 2 years). My family has owned Jeep Grand Cherokees as old as 1994 and as new as 2005, and this is second best compared to my '02 and '05 I also own now. A good buy!"

"i have owned my jeep for 8 years and she has never let me down or stranded. I replace her tires every year, whether or not it is needed. Oil is changed at 2500 to 2700 miles. when I seen my jeep in the lot, I bought it with NO test drive. No regrets."
