"Bought my Jeep with 38,000 miles on it. It looked great. I like the size, handling, features, and V8 engine with very reasonable gas mileage. On the other hand the drive train, especially the transmission, is poorly designed and unreliable. Mine stuck in fourth gear during a trip 300 miles from home. Luckily, I tried disconnecting the battery hoping some computer would reset itself, and it worked. It hasn't happened again,... yet. I have had other transmission problems. With the help of the Chrysler mechanic, I now understand it to be the transmission up shifting to fifth gear or to partial lock-up (the mechanic told me) by the time I get to 35 MPH. That is too soon for the engine which begins to struggle. It would be no problem if the transmission would down shift, but that doesn't happen. I am told it's working as designed. The bottom line is this otherwise very likeable vehicle, leaves me concerned about when the transmission is going to fail completely. To me there is no excuse for this. I won't buy another Chrysler product."
"The truck has 85%+ tread on tires , about a year old, battery replaced last jan. , new brakes/ all rotors and new front calipers. It has a exhaust leak at the gasket on the engine , the rear wiper runs all the time so I unplugged it and rear glass will open unattended . Has minor scratches"
Pros: "V8, Fun to Drive!, 4WD, Off-Road, Tank, JEEP!"
Cons: "Only have one"

"Yes, it's a Jeep! What's not to love about a Jeep? What fun is a daily driver if you can't hit the trial, and get a little dirty? Snow? Psht, No problem! V8? YES! Yeah the gas tack drops fairly quick, but I have fun doing it EVERY TIME! I love my WK. I wouldn't trade it for anything. V8, wont be disappointed!
Cons: "You have JEEP on the hood :(- motor is unreliable"

"This was my fourth and last Jeep. This one is the 4.7l all wheel drive. Rides well. Horrid fuel mileage-my fault. I knew this when I bought it. Once the 4.7 hits 110,000 or so, start shucking out the dough. My list goes on and on. I am here at KBB because I want to know the value so I can dump it and get something else while it is running at the moment. The repairs never seem to end. I am tired of researching my latest Grand Cherokee problem to read 'oh yea, that is a common problem with those..about $XXX.XX to repair. very labor intensive'
My earlier Jeeps(Cherokee Sport, Wrangler, and a GC Laredo) were solid. I put so many miles on them. 200K plus miles on the Cherokee Sport. Hey Chrysler, go back to basics and make a reliable automobile."
"I love my 10 yr old jeep., have since I first got it. I am primary driver, 90% of time. Had another Grand Cherokee previously which I drove and moved up to this one which had addl. features. Has been very reliable and comfortable transportation. Have never been stuck in even heavy snow & ice. My husband likes it not so much, he has complaints about gas mileage and doesn't think the drivers seat is good comfort on longer trips. I would buy another one myself since I am the primary driver, but getting my hubby to agree might take some good arguments because of his objections above. The only complaint I can voice is that if you have knee surgery, which I recently did, it is a challenge to get into the drivers seat."
"I purchased my 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee v6 a few years back when it had 48,000 miles. Now at 90,000, I am more than satisfied with my purchase. I feel it is the absolute best car on the road for the money. This car is off-road luxury at its best!
The Jeep has tons of creature comforts that other, more expensive SUV's have such as radio controls on the steering wheel, dual color leather heated seats... the whole interior is really, really nice. Most other used SUV with these features cost MUCH MUCH more or don't have 4x4 capabilities.
The Jeep rides great. Smooth ride and has more than enough power to tow my 18 ft boat. I have driven the Jeep on the beach and it drives over the sand like its pavement. Its a great vehicle for camping, fishing, hunting or just commuting to work.
It has also been a very reliable car. Other than normal maintenance (fluids, brakes, tires) I have not had one issue with the vehicle. It runs flawlessly, rides and sounds great!
I wouldn't want to drive any other vehicle!"
