"Purchased in end of 03, it is an 04. Great car very dependable, 1st set of tires & brakes 50K+ miles. Nothing mechanical that wasn't under warranty. Only issue is with the brakes, very thin rotors, you have to buy Mopar or else. Also, make the dealer install, and don't let them machine old rotors, as you are wasting money. Heated seats are great, a good vehicle for the mountains. I drive mine to Aspen all the time, all season tires are all that is needed."
"I leased this vehicle for three years. Great vehicle. I will buy again. Good performance, excellent fit and finish. Good mileage, 21 highway and about 16 around town. I think the locking torque converter helped here. Great at towing my 20' boat. Manual overdrive lockout really helped here. Only had one problem in three years. The brake rotors get out of round and you get jerky stops. Turning the rotors corrects but it comes back. Hear NAPA as a fix."
"I bought this Jeep when it was new in jan '01. I've kept it serviced and maintained and it has been a very reliable vehicle, never let me down. The only down side was the power windows. I had to have all 4 regulators replaced 3 different times. Thankfully the extended warranty covered it or it would have been $1200 each time. Other than that, it has been a rock solid vehicle!"
