"I purchased my jeep used about 6 years ago, other than minor repairs, I have been pleased with everything about it. As a single woman, and due to my current financial situation, I would like to have a vehicle with better fuel economy. I live in East Tennessee and we don't get lots of snow, but when we do, my wonderful Jeep will go anywhere! We recently had a pretty big snow storm for our area..6-8 inches..and I was so proud of my Jeep!! I actually passed a wrecker on the highway that had came to rescue a police car that was stranded, the wrecker was stranded also!! My Jeep amazed me because I have yet see weather that it can handle. I am looking to trade for a smaller vehicle to trade for. I wish I could afford to keep my Jeep too! :("

"I bought a used 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 in great shape around 6 months ago and it ran fine for a month but then developed severe engine stalling and stopping problems, Google this and you will find that a multitude of JGC owners have had a nightmare plethora of problems trying to resolve what is apparently a factory system defect, even with professional mechanics' assistance! Beware, beware....and I sure wish someone had warned me about this before I bought a Grand Cherokee in the mid-90s era. My experience with the regular Jeep Cherokees, however, has been great....and they are very reliable cars."

Sitting with our Hemi Grand Cherokee

"Bought this Jeep in 2000 with 56,000 miles on it.It now has 284,000 plus miles. We replaced brakes,tires,2 waterpumps,radiator and both front axles 2 times. Has has 4 cat back exhausts and new shocks on it (after 125,000 miles)The motor and transmission have never beep apart except for a valve cover gasket,exhaust gasket and water pump replacement. The best motor ever is the 4.0L motor..Starting to wear out but we will surely miss this girl when she has to be laid to rest.."
