"I've had my '07 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited going on six years now, and I absolutely love her. In the six years having her as my primary vehicle, I have only had one issued, nothing else. The factory installed alternator died on me. Even that wan't a big deal considering she was 7 years old at the time. After it died, I simply went to my local Auto Zone, bought a new alternator, and installed it myself. (Everything is made to break, eventually) I bought the car with 30,000 miles on it, and have nearly put 100,000 miles more on her in five years. As long as you take care of its general maintenance it will last you a long, long time. I plan on driving her for a while longer, maybe even until she dies. Even though I have been thinking about getting her much younger sister the '16 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Since owning a Jeep, I will no longer purchase from another manufacturer. I can't say much about Jeep's other models because I've only had a Grand Cherokee, but what I can say is, if the other models are made anything like the '07 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited then you are going to get the most reliable vehicle on the road.... GET ONE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!"

"With over 400 HP, 4 wheel drive, performance 20 in tires, and a super traction control system, the launch is truly amazing. It is probably as fast as anything in the world for the first few car lengths."

"I have had more problem with this jeep then I had with any other vehicle. I have replaced the water pump 2 time the power steering pump the radiator. The N23 recall really messed my Jeep up and now all of my light are lite up on the dash board, cruise control does not work, 4x4 is out, and it jerks when you first start it and put it in drive. All that comes form the N23 recall. I will not buy a Jeep again. Worst truck ever. Its a lemon."

"I've been having a problem for a couple years now. It seems that when it gets hot it starts idling funny . . . and that's being nice. Cylinders 2, 4 & 6 shut down and misfire codes are a plenty. The gauges are all idiot gauges so you can't watch anything but the rpms to see a difference. The ride is like a bucking bronco when it happens. So no problem through the winters but it's not like I can park it for 6-8 months here in Georgia. Unfortunately I should have seen this coming after experiencing electrical and electronic problems with my 2002 Dodge Ram and 2004 JGCL I've had before this. Wiring harnesses, light assemblies and power window failures. I will never own another Chrysler vehicle again and this vehicle is the testament as to why."

"This is the best SUV I've ever owned. Jeep Grand Cherokee body with Mercedes Diesel engine and transmission. On the outside, it's a Jeep. On the inside, it's a bulletproof, powerful, reliable Mercedes. Doesn't get any better than that. Oh, it's wicked fast and gets great mileage too."
