"The grand Cherokee is known for being one of the safest cars to own and extremely durable. Buying this Jeep, model 1997 when it came out brand new was in perfect condition, not until 2013 did a new transmission need to be put in, a new dimmer switch put in this year along with minor repairs here in there, including lights, stereo, and wipers. Interior is tan and grey nylon fabric and black accessories.Not really a fancy car with all the works, but great four wheel drive and last for forever!"
Pros: "4x4 and towing. Tows boats and small trailors!"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I've had this for 7 yrs. I am the second owner. We have never had to change the transmission or engine. I have a brand new GMC yukon and I still love driving my Jeep. It's so comfortable and to be outdated it has many features that were ahead of its time. Regular maintenance and oil changes are a necessity! It does help that we have an awesomea and inexpensive mechanic."
"great family vehicle for every day use and rode trips it has lots of room, also great for camping. It is well laid out and comfortable to drive or be a passenger. It has met all my expectations in performance and style. Bottom line is I love the Jeep Grand Cherokee and cant wait till I by another Brand new one."
"I bought mine "used" with 35xxx miles 10 years ago. It now has 175xxx miles. It has been a very good vehicle. I never hesatate to take a rough road or run a trail that other SUV's would balk at. I dont off road as this is a daily driver, but I wouldent hesatate. In the winter the Jeep shines. When other AWD cars, trucks, and SUV's are spinning their tires in the parking lot or at stop signs, I pull away with no problems. I have had a few mechanical issues but nothing way out of the norm. A starter, fuel pump, water pump and radiator. But at this age it is expected to have some issues."
