It should be obvious, but let's be clear upfront: this is not a good economical commuting vehicle or "basic" transportation. Even if you need the ground clearance for snow/sand, the ability to occasionally tow moderate loads, and other AWD SUV type capabilities, there are better options. Solid axles (of which there are 2 under this truck) can never match the ride and handling of independent suspension. And, finally, if you have no need for, or comprehension of, a manually-shifted transfer case—let alone one with 4LO—then just walk away now. This is the wrong vehicle for you. However, if you're looking for an eminently capable off-roader, even just mild National Forest road exploring, then this is a very good start. The bomb-proof straight 6 (AKA I6 <-- that's the letter "i") is generally an OK choice if you can't see any hills from where you're standing, otherwise you may as well get the V8 which is far better suited to the Grand Cherokees girth and makes essentially the same MPGs. I opted for the HO version of the V8 as it is matched to the beefier 545FE slushbox and (theoretically) stouter Dana 44a (AKA 44HD) rear diff which should buy me slightly more long term durability when being driven by more horses and getting beat on off road, mechanically-speaking. Or at least it should buy me some additional peace of mind. (Though the aluminum third member isn't particularly well-known for it's physical durability against impacts, that can be addressed with bolt-on solutions, i.e., armor) Coming from a (well-loved, if well-used) lifted 1993 Cherokee (XJ), the road trip worthiness and comfort is night and day between the two. It's no Lexus but the rounded corners and soft body lines go a long way towards quieting wind noise, while also helping economy creep up towards, and occasionally peeking into, the 20s. But when you're used to crawling (sometimes literally) over the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, being able to blast up the highway passes at the actual speed limit is very near a life-altering experience. And doing so for no (extra) penalty at the pump is certainly nice. (That said, I have typically opted for premium octane fuel in the HO for road-tripping the particularly mountainous sections of I-70 since it can legitimately bump engine output 10%...) Interior creature comforts are perfectly acceptable for this age and class of Jeep. My Columbia Edition WJ ups the ante in a couple places, notably the dual 6-way power seats and a tilt/slide sunroof. In fact, I feel like this particular trim has 90% of the best features of the Limited with virtually none of the cons. Especially the cursed auto climate control (which has known issues), instead offering just the basic manual heating and cooling controls. It would be nice to have the Vari-Lok LSD included with the QuadrDrive system though that would mean still compromising with the same transfer case, mine being the even less desirable QuadraTrac II. I only saw a single (non-HO) V8 with the more preferable SelecTrac TC in all my looking and, sadly, that seller never responded to inquiries. That said, performance of the Vari-Lok diffs is entirely dependent on consistently good prior maintenance by previous owners, which you can rarely count on. And you'd also be stuck with far less aftermarket support, something I already accepted with the D44a. The upside is a transfer case swap to a SelecTrac unit, while non-trivial, is a not unreasonable prospect and a something already on the medium term to-do list. So, ya, as an all-around road-trip, weekend warrior wheeler, and occasional tow rig, a V8 GC is a good option for your money.

The best car

Purchased this 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 liter high output about 7 months ago. Had every option available. 10 disc cd changer, navigation, rock bars, sunroof, two tone leather. The wood trim looks great! The technology is now heavily outdated but still functions well! One problem since ownership began, power steering has been not functioning correctly but barely noticeable. Get stiff at low speeds, under 5 mph. Other then that, has been very reliable and has not once failed to start! Great off road as well, in the mud or rock. Stupidly drove in 32 inch of snow this winter, amazingly made it two miles home. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend this Jeep to anyone in the used market!

Take care of it, and it will take care of you.

Overall: If I've been good to my GC so it's lasted me a long time; going on year four. Only reason I wouldn't drive a GC is if I decided to downsize or upgrade to a different vehicle type. Good things: The engine is very strong – everything else on it will fall apart before its 4.0L straight-six does. I change the oil myself, moper filter only, every 3,500 miles. I have never had to fix anything on the interior (e.g. seats, dash buttons). Aftermarket parts are cheap for the value, so fixing things never costs and arm and a leg. For the whole time I've owned it, it's only needed to "major" jobs completed. The 4x4 is one of the most reliable systems I've owned. Only had two recalls served, and both affected at least a half million other vehicles across makes and models (not just a Jeep problem). The service depts. I've been to are helpful; I'm very blunt with the associates, which makes them honest with me. Bad things: I watch my gas level drain when I drive it – hurts the wallet when I'm traveling far. I swapped out the trans at 195k miles (most truck trans last longer, so get a truck if you want trans and engine reliability). Chrysler went cheap on the electrical harnesses in the doors and the wires in the door jams, so the windows and doors may stop working. The OEM headlights point low to the ground, so night visibility is very limited. And the headlamp assemblies fog over, so get aftermarket ones. The body rusts too easily (mine has the notorious rust spot above the back passenger wheel well) and that shouldn't happen to almost every GC, but it does.

Very reliable and well built Vehicle.

I was a foreign car technician for almost 20yrs, and have found this vehicle to be very well built. I purchased it as a Certified Used with 18K and now have only 128K on the Odometer. The vehicle has received more than the required maintenance, by cutting required fluid changes in half. I do mostly Hwy driving, and get 60K out of average M&S tires. Have only had to replace the Crank Position Sensor @ 110K, and all coolant hoses @120K service, other than normal wear items. This Vehicle has a timeless exterior, functional clean and comfortable interior. The ride is harsher than others in its class do to the solid axles F&R ( one of the main reasons I purchased it). The other being the Dinasour inline 6 cyldr all cast iron, pushrod engine. This easy to work on , smooth running engine defyes "Murphys Law" - If its hard to get to - it will break! I would recommend using high quality motor oil or adding a Zinc additive to it , do to the flat tappet design of the lifters in the engine, and the reduction of Zinc in modern oils due to environmental conserns. Fuel economy is the only negative , I average 17 mpg @ 75% highway.

I bought an '04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland in 2005 w.a mere 22,000 miles on the odometer. Being loaded, this SUV cost $43,000+. I immediately learnt that both axle seals, & both rear shocks, were leaking. At 36,200 miles (200 miles out of the "warranty"), all "Hell" broke loose. The starter failed, the factory CD player died, power windows & door locks ceased to function (I've had this problem repaired 3+ times already), no Jeep dealership would help out even though this Jeep was only 200 miles out of "warranty", thepass. side rocker panel & frnt fender are rotting out, transmission started slipping at 117,000 miles. A grossly overpriced LEMON, & my LAST Jeep. Honda Pilot here I come!

I drive a 2004 Grand Cherokee 4.7 HO, 200k+ miles and going strong. I will keep this Jeep through 500k+ miles. When I was looking for a capable off-road with luxury comforts I found the WJ Jeep was best of the best. You will spend money on this vehicle, especially if you take it 150k+ miles but so what? You can find one used for $5,000. I typically spend 3-4,000 a year on my jeep but that is including lifting it 4", new tires and wheels and I use the 4x4 for fun on trails. That averages out to $300/mo. Not bad for vehicle that gets compliments every week and has rescued its fair share of other off roaders who lacked the power or traction to keep up with my Jeep. I love this Jeep.

There isnt a better winter performance car on the road. I live in Minnesota and as soon as the snow flied, my jeep becomes the fastest car on the road in 4wd full time. The issue with this vehicle is the continuous repair fees. I've had the below items replaced as of 122,000 miles. Power window motors front door connection to body master brake cylinder head gasket main seal rear Axel seal cruise control AC/blower flaps shocks 3 sets of tires Driver seat tracks (rocking chair) recall on seat heaters hood and rear glass support CD player display I swear to god if i didnt love this car I would burn it. Value wise, its about as bad as it gets.

I purchased my Grand Cherokee Laredo from a local used car place with 145,681 miles on it. The vehicle now has 210,450 miles on it. I still average near 21 mpg's on the highway with it. The inline 6 is a very durable motor, the only items I've replaced on it was at 175,265 a water pump, tires normal wear, brakes, and all push rods for lift gate, hood, and back glass. The cooling fan went out a few miles back going to replace it soon. Great vehicle. I get 17.5 mpg's in the city.

Update from review, Jeep now has 180k miles, we are replacing worn out shocks cost $700. Look forward to a better ride now. Still no issues with this Jeep if you are willing to take care of it. Small stuff that is annoying though. The wire harness issue on all these is a pain, if you are able to look at the broken wire in your door jam and can fix go ahead and fix it like I did save you money. Another part had to replace was the cooling fan, stock cooling fan went dead was a $200 repair and replace cost. All in all the quality and reliability is there on the 4.0 inline 6. Take care of it, and it will take care of you.

Door harness done three times. Once @ 35,000 miles (warranty), at 70,000 miles ( They covered it although I didn't have a extended warranty ) and again at 117,000. I had to pay for this one at $780. Had ten problems resolved under the warranty within 36000 miles, including replacement of alumium wheels,rear seals as mentioned in various reviews and tape deck. Went through three sets of Goodyear original equipment tires in 75,000 miles, despite having the alienment done every 6000 miles. I love the car for the ride but the cost of maintaining leaves much to be desired.

I have owned my 2004 since 2006. Bought with 85k miles and now have over 172k miles. Only minor repairs during life of vehicle so far. Very comfortable, performance lacking big time but isn't a V8, MPG awful! Probably get 12-14 MPG on average. Most get is 18MPG hwy but with very conservative driving. Only major repairs is a transmission solenoid about 450 at 160k miles, fuel pump at 90k miles (ran the gas too low for a long period of time my own fault). Other than that change all fluids when your supposed to and has been a good reliable vehicle for me.

All I did was pay to repair this thing. Faulty radiator, brake calipers, two engine fans, ignition coil, camshaft sensor, wiring harness, engine computer, engine oil cap broke off and oil had to be put in through the dipstick shaft, power window motors, bad adhesive on insulation on all the doors led to many wet seats after rainy nights. And my personal favorite, the drivers seat became a rocking chair after becoming completely detached from the track. This car was always broken. Not to mention the terrible gas mileage, which I would have been fine with if it were not for the constant cost of repairs. It ended up costing me more money to repair it than it did to buy it in the first place.

Previously owned a '96 Laredo 4x4 (purchased in 2000) and loved it. Perhaps the most reliable vehicle I ever owned. 240,000 miles with only minor maintenance and still eating up miles (my son has it now). I bought the 2004 Laredo twelve years later to replace it, I had to have the indestructable I6 engine! Very pleased with it so far. It rides more comfortably than my old Jeep and looks sharper (Silver with black trim and a dark grey interior). If it holds up as well as my previous Jeep Laredo I will be most pleased. Maintenance is just a fact of life in all vehicles, regardless of make /model. If you're fortunate (like I was), it all minor maintenance and wearable parts.

Until the 2011 Grand Cherokee was released I thought the 2004 was the best looking year of the best looking bodystyle. Has robust suspension and agressive approach and departure angles for offroading (though most are just daily commuters). Interior on the Overland was very nice and had unique styling. Nice engine/exhaust note, felt more powerful and faster than its 265 bhp rating. Good towing ability: 5000 lbs hardly noticable.

I purchased my Rocky Mountain Edition as a dealer demo. Fully loaded with all options except the navigation system. It is a Jeep - meaning that it has its quirks and faults. That being said; I wouldn't own anything else. I use this vehicle for my job which is building cell towers in extremely remote and rural areas such as mountain top sites. This Grand Cherokee has never left me stranded and no major problems. But keep in mind that a Jeep does need constant maintenance and care. It is not a Honda or a Toyota that you can abuse and not have any consequences. Flush the tranny every 30k, flush the cooling system every 30k, change out the differential and transfer case fluids every 40k.

This is our 5th Chrysler product, my 2nd GC and 3rd jeep. Purchased it with 122,000 miles on it. The interior is quite luxurious, the paint is in excellent condition, engine compartment is clean. This GC is the Rocky Mountain edition. We looked at Suburus, Hondas, Nissans, Toyotas and Fords. In the end this used GC fit the bill for us. Everything else was way overpriced for the year and features. The 4.0L is a reliable engine, everything seems to function well. For the money we couldn't find a better value. When it's time for repairs we know we won't pay an arm and a leg for parts since most of this jeep comes from the USA. We just finished an 800 mile road trip no issues.

This has been an excellent vehicle for me. Bought it at 50,000 kms and am selling at 140,000 kms. The engine has been excellent. I had one small oil leak which was fixed on warrant. The seat heaters had to be replaced twice on recall. My number one complaint has been the HVAC blend doors. I have had those break and replaced twice. Not cheap. Other than that this has been a great vehicle. It's solid and really has had very few issues except those darned blend doors. This is my second and I'm buying my third.

Ok we have had this thing for a few years now, thought that the 4.0 and the hard to find 2wd "Select Track" would give us some ok returns in MPG....yea....NOT. Some are saying they are getting decent milage but we get 15mpg NO MATTER WHAT! My Charger R/T is turning about 400 HP at the crank right now and I get 25mpg with THAT! What the HECK! Ive tried EVERYTHING and I work on cars quite regularly including major repairs so Im no slouch on a vehicle. The window cables are junk too, replaced 2 of them. Otherwise its not a bad suv, its just GUTTLESS as a dead horse. Dont expect the 4.0 to have the power to get out of its own way. V8 is the ONLY way to go, gets better MPG in these too....

I bought this Jeep new, my first, based upon my mechanic brother recommendation for a solid family car that can handle bad roads, bad weather, etc. So far I have 123,000 miles on her, from California to Canada, to Mexico and back. I have had to replace the tires 2x, the front and rear brake rotors and pads once, the shocks once, both tail light assemblies, hood lift rods. The engine makes a ticking sound now, has since about 110,000 when she's cold, which quiets down when the engine warms up. The interior still looks great, although I have replaced floor mats twice. The car has made weird clunking sounds since new, which has never presented a problem

I bought the 2004 GC Overland in 2006 with 27,000. I have had nothing but issues with this unit. Brake rotors (at 27k), all 4 window motors, seat heaters, ac had to be replaced, seat motors, the roof was rusting, power steering pump.. the list goes on..you name it. I loved the vehicle when I purchased it but let me warn you, these are a maintenance nightmare. Avoid Jeep, I have spent over 5k in repairs over the years (most happened right after the 36k warranty expired.) I gladly traded this nightmare in for a Toyota, my first foreign car. (I previously bought from the big three however cant risk or afford another situation like this.) To hell with Jeep and Chrysler!

I loved my Jeep. Here's why. Previously, I had a '94 Grand Cherokee with the I-6 engine. That lasted us 12 years before I sold it and bought my '04 (in '06), and the last several years that I'd owned the '04, I'd had a 3500 lb. boat to pull. it was a dog. But, my '04, with the V8, was AWESOME for towing. It was so much fun to drive, too. But, in the end, the reliability killed me. I had to replace the power window mechanism on 3 of the 4 doors, the body was starting to rust (at 6 years of age), and I'd had to replace a front wheel bearing. If not for the rust, I probably would have kept it, but today I drove home my new (to me) Honda Pilot. 16 years of owing JGC's, over, sigh.

Purchased my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee used w/approx 47,000 miles on it & traded it in 3 1/2 later with approx 84,000 miles on it. I put new Firestone Destination tires on it & got it aligned right after purchase. Got new rear brakes @ approx 70,000 miles & replaced front & rear shocks @ 74,500 miles. Aside above I have only done regular service checks. The truck has been great & reliable (drove it from NY to CA) experience. It is much more comfortable than I'd ever expected, even after 14 hours of driving. By now, anyone buying a V8 Jeep should know about it's 15 mpg gas mileage, quit complaining that's not why you buy a Jeep & same with the brakes. Not the best, but they stop you.

This has been the best car I have ever owned. It has 167,000 miles and all I've ever had to do beside changing the oil, is put a new battery in it. It has been a good car and I would recommend a jeep to anyone!

I had the 04 JGC 4.0 Spec. Ed. for 3 yrs and put 75K on it. Recently traded it in with 115,000K on it (b/c of nagging husband) for an 07 JGC and have been sick about it ever since. I have no negative comments about this car and will probably never love a vehicle as much as this one. It had all the bells and whistles, smokey gray in color with dark leather. Loved the overall appearance, design/features, and the way the 4.0 ran. (getting rid of the 4.0 was a big mistake Jeep!) I ran this thing hard and only repair was replace water pump at over 100K. Avg. 18 mpg and the 4WD rocked. Had a tick in engine, was told lifters going bad but never left me sitting along the road and i miss it everyday.

A very happy repeat Jeep buyer!

This is my 7th Jeep vehicle, and 5th Grand Cherokee. The common complaint of the windows not working and/or the interior lights not shutting off is a simple broken ground wire in the driver's door harness. Took me 10 minutes to fix. Overall, I'm very pleased with this Jeep, although some things have not lasted as long as older models I've owned, namely, the hood supports failed at 50k, all 4 shocks leaking at 60k, and rear axle seals at 70k. Other than that, it's been rock-solid reliable. Fuel mileage is outstanding for an engine whose roots date back to the early 1960s. By the way, it's an inline 6, not a V6 as some reviewers have written. I would and do recommend the Grand Cherokee!

This jeep is great when it comes to driving in the snow. It's not bad around town, it looks great in dark grey. I have had some issues with the electrical system though. The pass. side taillight keeps going out and none of the windows go up or down. I feel they could have done a better job on the electrical system.

I purchased my vehicle at 30,000 miles as a one owner lease return. I've absolutely loved this vehicle, the interior is very comfortable, the engine has tremendous power (which I love) and it's been the picture of reliability. I have several colleagues who all have jeeps during this bodystyle and most if not all of them have had only limited even standard maintenance. Several have over 130k with no new engines, transmissions, nothing beyond routine maintenance. The four wheel drive (mine is always on) feels amazing, and during cold weather I pity the other White-knuckled drivers on the road.

115,000 miles and going strong

I bought my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo new in 2004. It was a V8 demo model with less than 1,000 miles. I got a great deal on it because it was a demo and because of a $6,000 cash incentive. I've driven it now for over five years and have put an average of 23,000 miles per year on it, mostly highway. I had the shocks replaced at around 50,000 miles and all four axle seals replaced at about 70,000 miles. Actually, the rear ones were the only ones leaking but I thought I'd better go ahead and have them all replaced. Other than those two issues, it has been surprisingly reliable. Major services were done at 30K, 70K, and 100K and I did most oil changes myself every 3K to 5K miles.

I'm having problems with my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The power windows don't work and the interior lights wont go off when headlights are on. It doesn't even seem like my 4 wheel drive even works. My mirrors wont work,everything is powered. I had a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Now that was a beautiful suv!

I bought this vehicle when it came to my bodyshop for some paint work, did a carfax and it was a 1 owner with low mileage, very clean, ran fine for two days, then the oil pressure gauge kept going on and off. I presume it needs an oil pump at 55,000 miles.Not happy.

I bought my 04 G.C. in 07 with about 63k on it. I now have just over 100k on it and haven't had a problem that I would consider to be beyond routine maintenance. Don't let all these people scare you talking about the window regulators going bad, it is a problem but not a big deal. I had 1 go it cost me $90 and put it in myself in 30 min. What do you want- stuff will go bad on any car. The 6 cyl. is a bit sluggish when pulling a trailer but I doubt any other 6 cylinder in the same class could fair much better with 3000 lbs. behind it. You look at 90% of the complaints on here and there just a bunch of people that expect a vehicle to never have a problem. I would recommend a jeep to anyone.

I hardly even drive this car and it has had every problem in the book: brake failure, electrical, transmission, and oil tank leaks and ALL before 50,000 Miles. It is weak and has horrible handling. The dealership charges WAY too much for service and it feels like I'm driving a motor home. It is way too hard to maneuver in traffic and you feel like your going to tip over on every turn!! resell value was HORRIBLE! Save yourself the trouble and don't buy a jeep!! this is the first and last time I will buy an American car, back to Japanese auto makers

I have an 04 Jeep standard 6 cyl. When I first got the car I was siked! But for some reason I've noticed that the breaks squeal, and when you turn or go over a bump, it almost everytime feels like you'll do a rollover going around a bin at 40 mph, which isn't good. :(

I have owned Jeep's in the Past and like all their models. Read some of the other owners reviews, I did want to clear one thing up, People it is a In-line 6 cyl. not a V6, Big Difference and was the only reason why I purchased my '04 as 2004 was the last year they offered the I-6 engine. That engine has been around for years and is bullet proof. Great in Michigan snow and off road. Very comfortable, nearing 80,000 miles and just doing regular maintenance. Will Definatley buy another Jeep and Only a Jeep! My Ex-Wife bought a $80,000 Landrover, what a piece of junk, that thing has had nothing but issues. Love rolling up in the Jeep when her car is in the shop!!

Only complaint, right arm rest got a dip worn into it from my elbow from so much driving. Didn't get off road as much as I wanted, but when I did, it got me there and back in great style. The only time it didn't start, was the day I traded it. ($600 repair) I was exceptionally pleased with how it got me through heavy snows in PA, stuck with the road in heavy rain, easy maneuvering, great sound system. But tended to feel cramped with a family of four, loaded for vacation. Open road, got 23 MPG...in DC traffic, just 13 MPG. Right now, it's being prepped for re-sale. This Jeep was fun to camp with, and for day-fishing trips.

First Jeep I have owned and I have to say it's been a pleasure. Purchased pre-owned w/ 52K miles. Have had no major maintenance issues in 3+ years and going strong with just over 90K miles on it. We have 2 kids and 2 dogs and the Jeep (w/ a Thule box on roof) is a great sized vehicle that can go ANYWHERE!..and in comfort too. Great power, very comfortable, looks cool, drives great and very reliable. Love it, and will definitely consider replacing it w/ another Jeep someday.

I have to say that I'm overall impressed with the Gran. Cher. Laredo. I've read alot of reviews on these Jeeps and some of them are way too critical. Although I also have a ticking noise when I start it, the ticking goes away after 5 min. or so. I think if the buyers would let the thing warm up in the mornin' they would see the same results. I love the way it drives compared to every SUV I've drove or even ridden in. It's so comfortable, my girlfriend and I drove 18 hours to Dallas and she slept 3/4 of the way. Plus it averaged 21mpg @ 75mph. I guess what I'm trying to say is the Jeep has come a long way, and on that I think we can all agree.

I bought the Canadian version of the freedom, Its called the ROCKY MOUNTAIN. Ive owned a few suvs in my life and I must say, I really like the looks of this generation of jeep, Its interior is pretty boring, The seats are comfy, There is plenty of room. Its 4x4 system is immaculate. I drive it in lots of deep snow. I bought Nokian tires, they can't be beat, Its steering is incredible, The reliability is so far pretty good. No problems except a minor pin hole leak in a emissions tube. It cold starts great in bad temperatures, Lighting is good. High way and city driving is a pleasure, It feels rough and tough, I think it'll be around for awhile yet to come. I suggest this jeep to buyers.

I absolutely love driving my Overland. I have always had Jeeps and it doesn't get much better than this. My Overland has the high output engine so you definitely get around fast! It has everything you can get for it and I would not trade it for the world, except for a newer one (2004) It's worth the price if you find one used. I wouldn't spend the $45k for a new one, but to get one used is well worth.

Recently purchased a 2004 Grand Cherokee Columbia Edition from a friend. It is my second jeep and is in very good condition. It drives and handles awesome and handles the trails wonderfully. In addition, Monday - Friday I commute 40 miles one way to work and love the handling and size of this vehicle. 24 MPG would be ideal on the highways as I only get 21 at 70 MPH. Upgraded to Bridgetone REVO tires and the ride and handling is much better yet! Awesome truck will never sell!

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is my third jeep in thirty five years. I am in my fifties and I am an avid surf fisherman. I use my 4x4 vehicles extensively on the beach in Hatteras N.C. This vehicle has done wonderfully in the sand on Cape Point. It is one of the most comfortable SUVs I've ever owned. Unfortunately build quality has been a disappointment. Window fell down inside of the door. I am also having a continual problems with the heat and air conditioning system. The dash has been removed twice for a faulty flapper door. Very poor design with plastic parts that break. Hard to explain to wife why no A/C during our last trip to Outer Banks. Chrome peeled off of two Jeep Rims.

I bought my jeep about a year and a half ago. This is my second grand Cherokee (my old one was a 95) and I absolutely love it. Sometimes I cringe when it costs me close to $70 to fill up though. My car is the "roadtrip car" and we've fit 7 people (trunk too) and nobody was squished. I love the leather and the back seats are really comfortable. I haven't had any problems with it, I get my oil changed on time, clean it too much, and it looks and drives brand new. This winter I used my 4wd practically every day (damn New England weather) and I never slid an inch. Awesome truck, I wouldn't drive anything else.

This is the fifth Jeep I have owned and my most favorite. This is the perfect sized SUV. I like this Jeep much better than the 2005 and newer models. The new models have horrible interior materials unlike the 99-04 and the biggest faux pas is that they no longer have that indescribable "Jeep" ride and feel. The 99-04 models have ergonomics that are perfect. Every related function grouped together. All light functions are on the stalk, unlike Toyota for example. Same goes for both front and rear wiper controls; 1 stalk. The heat and air controls are a model of simplicity. 3 round knobs that operate with precision. The best feature is the design and comfort of the leather heated seats

My wife has always loved jeeps. We bought '04 G.C. Laredo 4X4 4.0L SFI. The engine ticks. Almost all the time sometimes loud sometimes quiet we've had it checked out by a certified dealership($69)and they said the 4.0L is notorious for being noisy. Everything checked out fine. FYI it only now has 40k miles on it and gets 13.3 MPG in town 19.9 on HWY. (65 mph for 72 mi.HWY). Other than a noisy motor & Terrible MPG it's not bad. Believe me when I tell you I take care of the oil changes and baby my $15k Automobile. It just ticks all the time and is embarrasing. "But thats just the 4.0L its a noisy motor." We spend $250- $300 a month in fuel at $3.39 9/10 gallon.

My wife and I purchased our GC LTD new and have generally enjoyed it. It has a nice smooth ride, and with the 4.7L V- 8, accelerates very quickly. My wife drives mainly in town and averages 14MPG, though on longer trips we have averaged as high as 23 MPG. We have had some recurrent problems, such as with window seals shrinking and front brake rotor problems. Jeep replaced the front brakes a couple of years ago under recall and have had no problems since, including no brake dust! We also had a heated seat burn through, but with some fighting Jeep repaired the seat. Overall, I would recommend the Grand Cherokee.

Recently sold my Lexus GX470 to buy the GGC Limited (had to cut back due to having a 1972 Bimmer restored). I was really planning to buy an Infiniti QX4, but a Jeep on a lot caught my eye. never thought I would buy a Jeep after hearing negative stories. Very happy so far. Not the ride of the Lexus, but I actually enjoy the more rugged feel and the V8 Throaty engine. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of interior and the overall experience.

We bought our Silver 2004 Ltd pre-owned from a dealer and have owned it for a little over 2 years now and we absolutely love it. Cool styling (best year in my opinion), awesome power and torque, very comfortable and pretty quiet on the highway w/o breaking the bank like an X5 or Rover. Has enough room for us w/ two adults, a 2 year old in a car set and two dogs in back. We put a Thule box on the roof for long hauls and we're ready for anything! We are avid snowboarders an this Jeep motos in the snow, but the stock Goodyear Wrangler tires need to be replaced w/ something more all-weather capable. My brother-in-law drove ours and went out and bought an 05'. They're contagious!

It has seen and done it all and never has it let me or my family down. When you first buy any new vehicle it should have good reviews. This is extroardinary to feel this way 3 years later. Great product 61000 miles later changed oil and filter; rotated the tires, air filter once. Its great

Wife bought this as a surprise b-day present. Great surprise! Thought we were going to have to go smaller, but got a great deal and the Jeep has been great so far. Had it for about six weeks and took it on a 2600-mile trip to VA and back; performed like a champ and got 20 MPG with the 4.7L V8! Comfortable, roomy and looks terrific in Inferno Red Tint Pearlcoat. Easy to get into and out of. Looking forward to facing the challenges a Minnesota winter will throw at it. So far, so good - I'm thrilled with my first Jeep!

All Around Great Jeep

Great SUV! The H.O. motor is fun and reliable. The car is great for someone who wants an around town SUV but knows that they can take it off road to. Car acts just as good if not better when off the road. The H.O. motor is also good to have for trailers. Overall a great car.

My experience was very pleasant. Although it consumes a lot of gas. It is a great car that many people told me not to get because it was American, but the truth is that in my 3 years owning it, I haven't needed to do any repair to it

Great car! The interior is nice, but not lavish or overbearing in its accessories. Good engine, the 4.0L will get you where you want to go while not being horrible on gas millege like the 4.7L or 4.7LHO. I would highly reccomend a Grand Cherokee Columbia Edition to anyone who was searching for a vehicle.

I love the truck but it does have a few hitches. On the transition from one gear to another you can hear and feel the grind of the gears. You must apply just the right gas pressure or none at all to make it through without an issue. And man, wow, guzzles gas. But the most comfortable ride I have even been blessed to ride in. Wonderful feel and a lot of fun options make this the best car I have ever owned.

I just traded my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 for a 2004 model. I owned the first for 3 years and loved it! Drives beautifully and is the perfect size. I did have to take it back to the dealer because of the rotors but they fixed them for free. I don't like the brake dust that gets all over the rims and I guess this is a common problem for the model. Other than that it is great.

I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee. it is reliable and comfortable with great looks. I only have a problem with the build quality. The Jeep is only three years old, and the brakes squeal quite a bit. Also, the seals around the second row windows are already coming loose (even though I always park in the garage) resulting in a whistling noise on the highway.

Can't believe how much I love this ride!

After owning Mazdas for the better half of my driving history, I decided to trade in my very sporty 3s for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To my complete surprise, I don't miss my Mazda AT ALL! I did not realize how well built these vehicles really are and how comfortable and fun to drive it is. I just love everything about this Jeep. Handles wonderfully off road and street driving is quiet, controlled and sturdy like a luxury vehicle. I can only hope this Jeep will give me many years of reliability just like I know the Mazda would have. Drove over my first snow bank yesterday. Ok, it was only about 18 inches high, but nevertheless, fun as heck. Now I know the Mazda couldn't have done that! Only in a Jeep!

This is my fourth Jeep vehicle and I have been so happy with the first three but this one has left me disappointed. The heated seat caught fire and burned a hole in the seat and I am still waiting on Chrysler to fix it. Having a huge burn hole in the seat of an expensive vehicle I just bought is something that is VERY disturbing to me and makes me not want to even be in it. Also, I just have noticed cheapness in the interior. It is fun to drive and the Quadra Drive 4-Wheel Drive system is nice. I have the navigation system and it has been useful. Steering in this one doesn't feel as tight as my it did in my '99. This may be my last domestic SUV for awhile. I may give the Murano a try.

Just purchased 04 JGC Laredo after putting on a whopping 325K (yes you read right!)on my 98 GC(original motor and trani...).I searched for a while to find the 6cyl with lower miles.Anyone who claims that these vehicles are not reliable,I'd strongly argue.My 98 went through regular maintenence and never left me stranded on the road(i travel in upstate NY,and New England as a sales rep.).Of note. I kept the trani. serviced very regularly as i found that to be real helpful with the overall performance. My 04's ride feels a bit smoother,and more refined than 98, and definately felt better than 05-06 model.Looking forward to putting another 300k on this one!

This is a working vehicle--hauls stuff from the lumber yard for home improvement projects just fine, and it's a snap to fold down the back seats. Also has been a kick on the backroads, no bogging down on hills. The sound system is great, the AC/heat adjustments work instantly, totally comfortable to drive on a long haul, plenty of pep, and you can see over or around just about anything. I love my Jeep!

I just got my Jeep a few weeks ago and it is great. I absolutely love it! I decided to trade in a Saturn to get the Jeep because I live where we get lots of snow, so I can hardly wait to put it in 4WD. It is a great vehicle, and gas mileage isn't too bad for being an SUV.

Overall, we like our Grand Cherokee. The car has a nice, though soft ride. It is great in the snow and is well built. Our only complaints we have are the gas mileage which averages around 11 around town. Most of the driving is around town with trip of approximately 3 - 5 miles. On a trip, we get approximately 21 babying the car. The heating and air conditioning are both excellent. It is a nice vehicle and we are pleased with it, though we will probably try another vehicle when the lease expires.

Former Nissan Altima owner for many years. I decided to finally get an SUV and couldn't resist the look and feel of the Jeep Grand Cherokee (4.7 v8). Jeep has a great smooth ride with excellent handling. I haven't taken if off road as of yet but can tell you it handles well both in highway (65 plus mph) and city driving. Interior is very nice compared to others. Some suggestions - larger glove box & change the center console to something a little more user friendly. I was disappointed within the first week I had to replace a faulty chip (car wouldn't drive) but that can happen with any car. I did have to replace the front brakes at 35k but I hear that is standard with Jeep.

This is the third Jeep Grand Cherokee that I have owned. They are honestly great vehicles. I have always bought them with V-8 power, and for one mpg difference, it is worth it. My two other Jeeps both went to 145,000 miles with NO problems (and still running strong) and this one is following their footsteps. My Jeep has not seen the inside of the Jeep dealership since I've owned it. (37,000 miles) except for routine maintenance. I have not had a single problem. It is very fun to drive, and very quick to respond. And in the snow, you can have nothing better than a Jeep 4x4. People always tell me how great the car looks. Don't believe people who say Jeep have problems, I would drive nothing else.

My boyfriend bought this as a gift. I absolutely love it. The only problem I've had with it so far was when it snowed and I was rocking myself out of my parking spot and the ABS & brake light came on. I freaked out! I ran upstairs and read my manual and I thought that this was gonna be a nightmare. To my surprise after a couple of days when the snow subsided and I drove to the gas station, the lights went off. BIG SIGH OF RELIEF. City miles is a killer since I live in NY, but when I travel highway miles the mileage is fantastic. So in the city especially I drive in overdrive to optimize gas mileage. Love this body model, don't care for the 2005 or 2006 model styles-they look boxy.

This will be my 4th Jeep and last. Purchased new and ran great for first 10,000 miles. Started to have rough idle problem when in drive. Had 4 different dealers work on it with no luck. They just say V8's idle rough in this vehicle because idle RPM is set too low for lower emissions. Can't change computer settings. What bull! If buying this vehicle used, look for one with at least 15,000 miles. This idle problem does not set in until later. Very smooth running V8 but idle at red lights or traffic a joke. Passengers will ask you whats wrong with your car? Brakes also need frequent work. Only buy this vehicle with a power driver seat.

I bought my Grand Cherokee brand new in the summer of 04 and I am pretty pleased with it. Have had 2 minor problems:transmission leak at 8000 miles and the battery exploded at about 19,000 miles. No one knew why but it was replaced for free under warranty. Comfortable inside and looks good on the outside. Could use a bit more rear leg room and not sure why but I keep getting random dents on the tailgate and have noticed other GC's with similar dents as well-not sure if that is common or not. Will be getting a new car within a year but it won't be a new Grand Cherokee. Would definitely keep the 04 over the new style. Fuel economy isn't that bad for an SUV-gets better mpg than my mom's Liberty.

This is my 3rd Jeep Grand Cherokee and the first two passed the 200k mile mark without any major issues. I drive a lot and drive pretty hard (NE winters/construction sites). This one ('04 GC Overland) is about to hit 100k miles and I replaced brakes and tires at 70k miles and a water pump at 80k. Other than an oil change (including gear and trans fluid/filter) and alignment at around 75k, it has never been back to the dealer for anything (I change my oil and filter every 6k miles). The only minor annoyances include the driver's door armrest is cracked and pinches my elbow (same thing happened to my 2002 GC Laredo) and it is a bit louder than I would like at highway speeds (70- 75mph). I will surely consider a 4th!

This was my first effort to return to a traditional "American" car after 30 years of buying foreign. I had read that the reliability of "American" cars had improved significantly and nearly equaled that of Japanese. My Jeep evidenced good quality and reliability until it reached 10,000 miles. It then developed problems, such as the need to repair the brake rotors. This was a common problem at this mileage level with older Jeeps, but I thought it had been remedied. Chrysler/Jeep previously warranted them for 3 yrs/36,000 mi. Now apparently the warranty expires at 1 yr/12,000 mi, leaving the consumer with some expensive repairs every 10,000-12,000 miles.

Great value. We cross-shopped the Honda Pilot, Dodge Durango and Chevy Trailblazer. We chose the Jeep based on overall value. We have put on 32,000 miles in the first 15 months and have had zero problems with our Jeep. We "moved-up" from a Cherokee and this vehicle is a big improvement all around over the smaller Cherokee.

We bought this Jeep fully intending to keep it for a long long time. It's a 2WD Cherokee LTD. By 6000 miles we began to experience problems with brake rotor warping and peddle pulsation. It got so bad I was concerned about losing control during braking. The bottom line -- dealer told us to pound salt. Gas mileage horrible for a 6 cylinder (16.9 mpg city). Would NEVER buy a jeep again (or any Chrysler product).

I've had my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee for 5 months now. It replaced my '95 Jeep with 185,000 miles and still running strong. This is my third Jeep; my only complaint is the interior plastic is not a good as it should be on a $31,000 SUV. Ride comfort is a little bumpy but acceptable. If you don't intend to take drive off road you may want to look at a Toyota or Honda instead. Off road nothing is better than a Jeep 4x4. With good set of A/T tires, Grand Cherokees can follow a Wrangler Rubicon almost anywhere except extreme rock crawling. You will probably be the limiting factor in where you attempt to take it. Window regulator broke -- dealer repaired so it cost $0.

I bought my 2004 Grand Cherokee used from the local dealer with about 15k miles on it. Having read all the reviews stating different mechanical problems, I test drove at least a dozen Grand Cherokees before I settled on this one. Many of the Jeeps I test drove had a wandering front end, pulsating brakes or transmission noise. Some had too many miles with no warranty left. The one I picked had 2 years and 20k left on the warranty and NO symptoms of any mechanical problems. After 8,000 miles there are still no problems. If you can find a good one like I did, it makes a perfect every day car.

After buying several domestic vehicles and having horrible quality, we were ready to give into a foreign vehicle. I wanted something fun to drive, yet a good size and could fit the family, luggage and myself and something good in the snow. My friends who had a '95 Grand Cherokee said that they loved theirs and that they have had nothing but basic maintenance done on theirs with 162,000 miles on it (still running too!). So with that, we looked into them, found one with the strong, efficient, and long-lasting 4.0 I-6 and bought it. We have had it for 1.5 years and we have almost 36,000 miles of trouble-free driving. It's fun, great size, and gets 17mpg in city and sometimes 22 on the highway. Great SUV!

I really like that it is small and nimble, but also large enough for a family. I bought it new and was told 87 octane was fine. I've since learned otherwise. It has died on me just sitting at a light several times. I also have had problems with wind noise through the driver door. The key fobs are HORRIBLE. I've had them worked on (supposedly) at least five times and they still don't work. The absolute worst feature is that if you are in the back you either sweat to death or the passengers in the front freeze to death as they go deaf listening to the air on high.

I traded a 2000 VW Jetta in for a 2004 Grand Cherokee. While I was a bit shocked at the much bigger gas tank and gas cost, I truly love this car! It has been a pleasure driving it around town and on long trips. I like the feeling of sitting up higher than other drivers while not losing the comfort of luxury found in the Grand Cherokee.

This is my first Jeep and I absolutely love it! Got it with the 4.7 V8 with Quadra Trac. If you're like me and you want your SUV to have real capabilities (towing, off road/inclement weather, cargo etc.) the Grand Cherokee is the way to go. Yes, it rides like a truck, but that's because it's a truck, with truck like capability! Looks great at deer camp as well as cruising downtown. My wife has a Trailblazer, which has about 40 more HP, but it's a dog compared to the Grand Cherokee. Few minor issues since purchase, including worn out sway bar bushings, and a popping sound from steering whee -l- both replaced under warranty with redesigned parts. Fuel economy is decent. Again, it's a truck, it's not supposed to get 30 mpg.

I replaced a 1996 Grand Cherokee with this 2004 in Nov. 2003. I liked my old one, but this one is fantastic. It rides great, handles very fine and once I rid myself of the factory Goodyear tires (replaced with Michelin LTX MS), this Jeep will literally go anywhere I want to go. I absolutely LOVE IT!

I have had five of these vehicles as they evolved from 1992 onward. As a field vehicle in my biological research I found them unbeatable. Now, in retirement, I continue to enjoy the vehicle for travel and everyday use.

It's a great SUV! Great in the snow. I bought the V-8 4.7 liter. It averages 15 mpg. I test drove the V- 6 4.0 liter. I needed the V-8 for my needs. I really didn't want to buy the 2005 with the new body and new motor design, so I got a left over.

I mean if you read about this Jeep, they make it sound like a bad car, let me tell you, I have owned all sports cars until this Jeep, and this thing can drive. It moves, handles, and brakes fine. Of course it is heavy so it dosen't do it like a sports car would, but pretty close. 4X4 can't be spoken for, so unbelievable, it can't be stopped - I tried. I towed an H2 out of a mud pit, I struggled but it is WOW!!! Great car.

Great blend of comfort and capability.

Where I live here in the Colorado mountains, I must have a solid and capable 4x4. The JGC has filled the bill with style. I think that those who criticize the JGC on bumps have not driven a 4x4 with solid floating axles front and rear before. It simply amazes me how responsive and smooth the JGC is considering the tough and proven components that make up the drivetrain and suspension. Mine had a bit of body roll too, but was practically eliminated with the installation of a set of quality tires with stronger sidewalls, in this case, Pirelli Scorpion STRs. The JGC is awesome on snow and ice through twisty mountain roads, and is smooth with good feel on the highway.

The Jeep has been nearly perfect and I put it through a lot of beating. It has towed my 19' boat 15 times this year. Most trips greater than 50 miles. I have 23K on the odometer. Nothing has failed and nothing really needs replacing. I do get the oil changed every 3K and have done all of the scheduled service.

My wife had an accident with a Ford F150 that ran a red light while driving our 2000 Grand Cherokee. She hit the truck broadside and rolled it over. Our Jeep took the hit up front. Everyone in our car had only minor bumps. Jeep was totaled but the passenger compartment was perfect. My wife would now not have anything else but a new one. They would have been killed in a car. The new 2004 is even nicer than the first. Very comfortable to drive and plenty of power with the 4.7 V8. It handles well and has a beautiful paint finish in Inferno red pearl coat.

This is my 2nd GC, 1st was a 99 Laredo with 6 cyl. This one is a 04 Limited loaded, inferno red. It has all the features, tow package, pwr pedals, nav system, automatic lights,tire pressure monitor, heated seats, climate control, and matching full size spare. I burn midgrade gas in the H.O. engine and it does fine. I get 15 mpg around town and on the road 22mpg, not the greatest but expected from a 4X4 and H.O. engine. I have had it for 14 months and nothing has broken yet. I tow a boat 4500# and get about 10mpg when towing. Tows great. The size of the GC makes for easy parking in a downtown parking garage compared to some of the large SUVs.

Live in Manitoba Canada. We really have enjoyed this vehicle and use it regularly off road to go to our remote cottage. Factory tires were garbage and replaced with BFG TA KO's. Can't imagine how a vehicle of this caliber & price could be equipped with such lousy tires. Fuel economy acceptable for a V8 SUV. Glad we didn't get a 6 cyl. Quadra-Trac 11 is pretty neat

I am proud to say that my 2004 Special Edition Jeep, is the 4th Jeep that I have owned. They are reliable, dependable and safe to drive. In 2001 a deer ran in front of me as I was driving 60 miles an hour. If I wasnt driving a Jeep, I think it may have killed me. My Jeep had a lot of front end damage, but my passenger and I walked away fine. My only complaint is the gas mileage.

The love affair continues. Looking great, running great and the only problem so far, the voltmeter quit working. On order with the dealership. Coming from San Diego back to Arizona, there is a steep, long, descending and winding road. BMW X5 with low profile tires tried to loose me at speeds nowhere close to legal.

Basic SUV not to be mistaken for a soccer mom urban assault vehicle. Even with comfort features like leather, sunroof and power seats, it's still a SUV through and through. Besides the gas consumption, which gets better and better with each mile put on it. (I'm up to 17 mpg!) It's not a car; f I wanted a car I would have purchased a car. Great SUV and even greater price.

Buying my Jeep Overland is no doubt one of the smartest car decisions I have made. It's great for trips, however long or short they may be. So far, there hasn't been any problems with it, except for a minor leak in one of the tires. The only times it has been in the shop ate for the service checks or inspections, which it has always passed. I'm proud of my Jeep, and its excellent performance.

I'm smilin' because I've got the best value ride for the money. This is a great looking vehicle. I'm 6'2" and there is more than enough leg room. Fantastic towing power with the V8. Pulled my 5000# trailer and it didn't break a sweat, even at 65mph. The build quality is very impressive. The doors slam with a solid "thud". Freeway mileage with the V8 not yet broken in is just over 20mpg. Was able to make a deal for $460 under invoice with an additional $5500 in rebates. Also got $990 discount for the V8. If there are any 2004's left out there, grab one. When I saw the 2005 body style change it convinced me to buy an '04. Much classier styling in the '04. I'll always own a Jeep.

I bought a 2004 leftover and I love it. I feel very safe. Doesn't ride like a truck, very comfortable. Some SUV's feel like you're riding a bucking bull. The gas mileage is better than I expected. Not being all wheel drive certainly helps offset gas expense. The stereo and interior layouts are fair at bes -- it seems like there is wasted space around the dashboard and gear shift. The upgraded stereo system is worth it. If you want very reliable transportation (in all weather conditions) at a fair price (not mention the Jeep holds its value) -- then I'd highly recommend this vehicle. Like I said, I love mine!!!!

I have driven my Jeep to the Extreme, I have made it go into 4 feet of water with absolutly no problem. I like the the way it picks up speed quickly. Ride is not so soft but it's not too hard like the Nissan X-terra's. The SUV looks quite stylish and a little expensive looking. The Tailgate door needs a little more of a matching design. the rear tailgate door looks a lot like it's relative the Dodge Minivan. Ive seen the new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee they look nice but still no third row seats. But yes I do recommend eep other than it seems like most Jeeps have a rear light problem.

This vehicle is as good on road as it is off. We put alot of mileage on since purchasing it driving back & forth to florida, it gave us no problem at all considering in 5 months we've put on 28,000 miles!! the only small complaint we have is that during washing (a power washer was used)the paint on the bumper peeled off in one spot. The dealers here in florida assured us it could be repaired. But besides that, we absolutely love it!!!

My Cherokee is my second Cherokee. I love it -- I can haul whatever comes my way and I like the comfort for long trips - which is most of my driving. I wish I had a V8, but I have gotten used to the 6 and I am saving fuel costs. I love my sun roof, and the room inside is awesome. Plus it is a beautifully designed car on the outside -- truly well designed for curb appeal. I could have spent another 5-10K on a BMW or Lexus ...but would not have been worth it. I love my Cherokee ! It is truly an American Dream !

Hey, until Mercedes really takes over, this is the best of the Jeep bunch. I am very encouraged that DCM will get there but I don't know how soon. In the meantime we in the US get downgraded Mercedes for less than what I would have expected. For those of you coming off lease, you have a great opportunity in the next year or two for "lease loyalty" good treatment for technology that may be new in a Jeep name but very well healed overall

The only problem I have had was a leaking windshield. Body roll is a tad excessive, but overall ride is great for a 4x4 that I am not afraid to take on a mountain farm road!

Well, I found this car on eBay and didn't think it would end up in my price range. Had been leased out for a very short time-11,687 mi. to be exact (banks still considered it new as opposed to used). In flawless condition he sold it to me for $17,800 with zero hassle/haggle. I couldn't believe it all the way home, (apx. 300 mi.) it rides great, it has great pickup for a 6 cyl. It corners like a bicycle compared to other SUV's (must be the Jeep in its blood). The leather feels great and it steers like a dream. I'm an audio aficionado so eventually I will have to replace the sound system but for now this one is actually okay. Best car I've evr had. Get one !

This is a great vehicle. I use it to tow a small, enclosed, car tailer(about 5500 lbs loaded weight). Has plenty of power on all but the absolute steepest conditions. The overdrive lockout button is very handy when towing. Metallic flecks in the black paint show fantastic in the bright sunlight. The interior is very comfortable and easy to live with on extended trips. Lots of cargo room with rear seats folded down. Headlights/Foglights do a great job. Steering wheel mounted Audio controls have got me really spoiled. Get a lot of comments on the Chrome 17" Wheels.

I was alittle disappointed with the realiability of my vehicle during delivery the engine light came on and has to be taken back to dealer. They were great drove it and said all looked good. I then drove it for 3 days . As I was driving lost total power and suv wouldn't move. It felt like the transmission. This is new how can this be. I shut off engine re- started and headed to a local dealer to find out it was a bad transmission switch. I am hoping this is all or I will be very sad. I truly love my SUV.

I started buying Jeeps in 1980. I have owned 4 Jeeps and I have never been happier. I have owned other vehicles at the same time but none have stood the test of time. I off-road often and have past up and gone beyond the range of the Hummers both styles as well as Range Rovers. They just cannot go where the Jeep can go and I don't give up any comfort in my Jeeps. Fully equipped with leather on the saddels and AC in the dash. My most recent trip into the backwoods of CA found me pulling out a H2 that just could not go where my Jeep could. I literaly was driving all around in the mud and water up and down hills and The H2 could not do it. Jeeps Rule!

1995 Grand Cherokee - 152,000 miles and still going strong. New Grand Cherokee same model V8 - loaded, better ride, acceleration, interior etc. More room in rear with spare under floor. If it continues to perform like the '95, I'll buy another one.

Drove sedans for 8 years, then bought my Jeep. A great upgrade. Fuel not great, but extremely comfortable on road trips. Handles great, comfortable steering, standard options were the selling point. Suspension is awesome. Four-wheel drives works great in the mountains on muddy roads as well as snow covered roads. All in all, went in with high expectations, and I was not at all dissappointed. Definitely will strongly consider buying again

this is my second jeep and i like it better than most suvs out there. this is a true go anywhere vehicle period. if you feel you need an suv as a daily driver, better look for something else because this is for those who actually need a capable vehicle able to go through almost anything nature throws at them. maybe this is why jeeps are often used as search and rescue vehicles and not just for off road. the only other true suvs that is as capable as a jeep is a hummer, a rover, and an mb g-series. that's it. a jeep is what you need and will be glad that you have when the going gets real tough.

this is the first new car I have ever bought for myself and I could not be happier, unless it got better gas mileage. But the good look and the great ride make up for that. I have the Laredo Special Edition so I am spoiled with the leather seats and all the extras... I will definately be a repeat buyer.

interior is too small (tight) switches are too close,such as window,door locks,etc. should be moved further forward for comfort and ease. Also,the front seats need to be adjusted somehow so the seats can be moved further back if need be. They are now very limited. If someone wants to nap in a reclined position the headrest is too hard,even being down.

Having owned several SUV's in the past it was a surprise to find the quality and comfort the Grand offers. I spend a lot of time in my Jeep so the A/C, stero, and seats really mean a lot. The best keep secret is you can get a plain Grand with a V-8. It handles well and the fit is excellent. The Daimler crowd has done a nice job of fixing the past problems. I tried it off road and was surprised to find it handled well on dirt. Always owning 4X4's in the past it was hard to keep going, but I went safely into areas I would never try in some of the vehicles I've owned. Overall it is a good package and offers more than I expected.

First bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo in 1994. It lasted me 10 years with NOT ONE SINGLE PROBLEM. It was only this year, 2004, that I had a few issues...with the air and transmission. But that's pretty darn amazing! Hated to trade my baby in, but decided it made sense. Now I just bought the newest Laredo and it's been just incredible. Could not ask for more with comfort, the look -- and it drives beautifully. Your ratings are WAY OFF, as far as I'm concerned. THE BEST!!!!! Ed Connolly Stony Point, NY

I have only had my Grand Cherokee a short time but I am very pleased. Despite the negatives that leading auto magazines and web sites tag on it, it is an awesome fun to drive vehicle. There are few better looking SUV's out there and none in this price range. Although I thought I wouldn't use it the trip computer has been indespensible. I only have the single disc w/cassete radio but with the upgrade speakers you get very good sound quality. If you can live with the fuel economy (I have not had over 18mpg) I would highly recomend this vehicle.

Great vehicle. Not a cross-over SUV. Drives well, comfortable seating, a lot of power. We have had it for 4 months now and are considering trading it in because of an inadequate air conditioning system. We live in the south and when the outside temp rises above 85 the vehicle doesn't cool down much past 80. It is ok in the front when the vents are pointed directly on you and the fan is on high, but the rear occupants don't get cooling that way. When the vents are pointed towards the back it doesn't make much difference. Jeep has recognized this problem and offers rear air vents in its 2005 models.

It wasn't a day and the problem returned, I took it back to the dealer and they said that it seemed to be that way on all the special editions because evey one they had was doing the same thing.

Purchsed my Grand Cherokee Limited with 4.7L V8 and Upcountry suspension a couple months ago after owning a Liberty for two years. So far I am quite pleased. My needs are for a vehicle that can be both a daily driver and take me off the beaten path for camping, skiing and fishing, and the GC fits the bill. Since owning it I've driven almost 400 miles offroad, along mountain and desert trails to some very remote sites. I've had no problems whatsoever (other than a few scrapes on the skd plates). Fit, finish, ergonomics are all quite good.

This has been a very nice vehicle so far. We have put 1300 miles on it in the month that we have owned it. Have averaged 17.8 mpg with the V8 in a mix of city and highway driving. Biggest complaint so far comes from a fat kid that put a door ding in it on the third day of ownership. The dealership we purchased the vehicle from was very pleasant to deal with, especially after being lied to by a Mitsubishi dealer. The Jeep handles well on the open highway and has a tight turning radius for the parking lots. Ample power and torque from the V8. Quiet at highways speeds. 5 speed transmission always seems to be in the right gear for the situation.

A 2004 Overlander was purchased last year with only 1903 miles. My 1993 is still running strong with 178,500 miles and show no signs of faultering. I spent about 4,000 dollars at 103,000 miles to over haul miscellanous parts and tune-up from had to toe. The money was well spent, this truck will last at least another 5-6 years. The overlander is a nice truck, very fast,nimble and nice ride, the back seat is tight for 3 adults. No mechanical& electrical problems yet only the side Overlander emblems had to be replaced due to the plastic lamination started peeling back.

Its fun to drive, comfortable and manuverable. I think you get what you pay for with Jeep. If you are looking for a luxury model of the SUV, go with the Limited or Overland. And make it a V8. I got the V6 because I wanted to have a smaller gas bill and "pickup" and acceleration of the jeep aren't important to me. They are nice, a classic sports, beach, family & friends, great for shopping, traveling & they are roomy. Just do your appraisal and look at all your options before making your decision

I just purchased an '04 SE. I traded in my Pathfinder (I've owned 2 now). I absolutely LOVE my Jeep. It's performed perfectly. I agree that the gas mileage is a bit low, but no worse than my Pathfinders. The Jeep is much more luxurious and has lots more power. I'm really enjoying my Jeep and am looking forward to the first snow!

Although this SUV is nice looking with off-road capability, buyer beware that it will likely leave you stranded on the side of the road at some point. That's what happended to me and I regret not paying closer attention to its reliability reviews. Purchased brand new, I've had the vehicle for less than 1.5 years and found many quality concerns: overheated engine, repeatedly detaching door panel, leaks in engine and transmission, faulty gas cap... Just about every section has had some sort of problem requiring multiple trips to dealer.

This is my 2nd Jeep Cherokee and this 2004 model is roomy and fun to drive - The cargo area seems larger than the previous model I had (1993)and that was an 8 cyl. This 2004 model is a 6cyl - full of power, control and smooth driving. As for the mileage - I have been getting approximately 15.6 miles per gallon - and that is with the air conditioning is on and driving on the average of 318 miles per tank Overall 0 I must say that this is the car to have - it is a beautiful work of pride and dedication that the auto manufacturer has built. Thank you Jeep

I had a 1996 blazer with under 80,000 miles. On a hoot i drove a 2004 jeep grand cherokee larado. Needles to say the blazer is sold and I am very satisfied with my new car. Contrary to what Edmonds.com says (they must be driving something other than a jeep) the ride is very very smooth, handles corners at high speeds like a dream, comfortable,good looking dependable solid, comes standard with items you have to pay extra for on other vehicles - I have owned many cars but this jeep is by far the smoothest one ever - i will definitely purchase another one and willnot waste time looking at other makes.

I love my new Grand Cherokee. We had it for about a month before we took a 24 hour drive over the course of two days and it was the most comfortable I have ever been in any car/truck for that period of time. Gas mileage was better than on the sticker for the longer ride, even with the cargo area and back seat full. This truck feels solid around just about any corner at just about any speed, much better than my former Chevy Blazer. Sound system is even good enough where I don't feel the need to replace it. Overall the best standard mid-size SUV I have ever ridden in or driven, hands down.

I test drove many vehicles before deciding on this jeep, and I love it so far. Drove it 325 miles first off to take it home. It has a little more wind resistance then I am use to, but I'll get use to that, and the gas mileage isn't quite as good as my car, but except for those 2 things, I can't say enough good things about my Grand Cherokee

I work for a Jeep dealership, so I was well informed about the Grand Cherokee's, and I am not disappointed at all. My previous cars were a camaro and a dodge ram, and I am so glad I finally have a Grand Cherokee. The seats are so much more comfortable than the previous two vehicles, and the ride feel is inbetween a car and truck feel - and coming out of a truck, it's a huge improvement. I love that even the base models have so many standard option.. I can't live without keyless entry! I wish the I6 had more power(I just came out of a V8..so I may just be spoiled), much it is certainly enough for everyday driving.

Traded in my 2000 JGC Laredo (V8) for the 2004 JGC Limited (V8). Fourth Jeep I have owned...not as "problem free" as some imports but Jeep lovers tend to be loyal! Beautifully styled SUV, nice medium size. The V8 makes the JGC as quick as many alleged sports cars and is usually faster. A light tap on the accelerator gives a suprising burst of speed. Overall, a head turner, fun to drive, easy on the eyes. Fun to drive and recommended to anyone considering a JGC.

I have owned many car brands over the years, from Japanese to German. This is my second Grand Cherokee since 1993 and I found both to be the most reliable vehicles that I have owned. My current Jeep performs terrifically in the city and on roadtrips. It is comfortable and stylish. The 4X4 is irreplacable in Massachusetts - I never have trouble getting around in the worst of snowstorms.

Simply put, I've owned only Ford Motor Company products my entire life. This past fall I wanted a mid-size SUV to trade my F-150 to. I drove an Explorer and then after a friend telling me great things I drove a Jeep. A few hours later, I drove away in my 2004 Pewter GC Special Edition. Great engine, fair ride quality, best seats in the business, and overall superb vehicle. I would also like to comment on how nimble it feels compared to other SUVs I've driven.

Well, I was all excited to by my first Jeep, and what a mistake that turned out to be. The short test drive did not allow me to realize the things that would later make me hate it. The outside wind noise, the horrible vent system, the problems with the starter (on a new vehicle?), the dripping of fluids, the poor acceleration.... Well, I am now going to see how to get out of it with the least amount of damage to my pocketbook. Hey, anyone interested in a slightly used Jeep???

I just leased 2 GC SE yesterday (one for my wife and one for me). Last night my GC SE had an engine light go on and the right directional started flashing right even though I was not turning right? The engine light indicated that there could be a manifold problem with the car. I brought it over to the dealer (nice guys) and they said they would make immediate repairs. I have had 2 Saab's and NEVER had an issue (never mind one after 50 miles of driving). Hopefully I did not pull a lemon. The car rides and looks great--we will see about the reliabity.

I bought my Jeep from my dad after driving it around for awhile. Now after a year of ownership I can say I love this vehicle. It now has 106,000 miles and I still average 18.9 mpg (even with the optional 245 width tires). This has been an incredibly reliable vehicle and is extremely comfortable on long road trips. The 4.0 litre straight 6 (with K&N filter) gives decent power. Oil consumption between oil changes is barely noticable. I will probably never sell this vehicle. I like the exterior styling - it has a good rugged look. The suspension is tough and does its job well off road.

I dont own a grand cherokee yet but thinking about buying it for a while. I owed many different cars but never US. I never trusted cars made in US such as ford, chrysler or GM. I work for an extended aftermarket warranty and I have to say Ford GM and Chrysler are amonge the worst vehicle out there. The reason I want Grand Cherokee laredo is simple its very relible and engine is just phenomenal. This is only veh I have no problems with and very little claim comes from laredo. I would recommend laredo to anyone who is looking for Grand Cherokee. Engine is excelent, that is the only reason I would buy it.

So far, this Jeep has performed fairly well. The only problem I've had is that I bought the 4.0L and really wish I'd have gotten the 4.7L for the extra money. The 4.0 gets about 13 mpg for me and I'm sure the V8 could not get much worse, plus the power would be better. The 4.0L is a bit sluggish but has performed okay when offroad.

I have a 2001 4Runner that is downright scary in the snow. We had a lot of snow in the northeast this year, and we have put about 10,000 miles on our 2004 Grand Cherokee since 11/03. The 2004 Grand Cherokee is the best thing I have ever driven in the snow...I think, it's the best "real SUV"(not like the Pilot,or Highlander types) for the money.

This Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Limited is the best car I ever bought! It rides as well as our Volvo T6 S80, and drives beautifully, too. Going through snow it is like a big safe sled. Not one skid, slide, or hesitation going over the mountain pass in several inches of snow. In my mind this Jeep is the best all around SUV for the money. A huge improvement over my previous Jeep.

The best suv ever

I always wanted a jeep and finally I got one. I love it so far. It's rugged feel and durablity is why i like it so much. I haven't had any problems as of yet. Being in Michigan i have had to put it into 4 wheel basically all winter long. Just yesterday the roads were icy coming out of my sub, i put the select-trac into All-time and away i went, no problems. One of the other reasons i bought this suv is becuase the 2004 GC has been on the same platform for over 5 years. I feel that all the bugs have been fixed and the quality should be perfect. I highly recommend this vehicle to anybody.

The Jeep is a fine SUV until things start to go wrong. I am tired of hearing "we see this all the time in these Jeeps" from my mechanic when I have a little problem. It performs excellent off road, but compared to other SUVs it is noisy and has mediocre handling. Chrysler designs these vehicles so that when little things go wrong with them - big things have to be replaced.

MY 4TH NEW JEEP IN 9 YEARS. THIS IS A HANDSOME & RELIABLE VEHICLE. HOWEVER MUCH TOO LARGE FOR THE 6 CYL ENGINE. NONETHELESS POSSESSING CAT-LIKE PROWESS IN OFF-ROAD SITUATIONS . THE SEATING SHOULD BE MORE COMFORTABLE CONSIDERING THE $30K PRICE TAG . I HONESTLY EXPECTED MORE FROM THIS MODEL CONSIDERING THE PRICE HIKE OVER THE NOW DISCONTINUED CHEROKEE.

First in buying my Jeep, I used the Internet to do my leg work before I even went to any dealerships. Between Edmunds.com, cardirect.com, etc... I had 14 quotes. Once I had a good feel for the price I wanted to pay, I lined up test drives not only to check out the vehicle but to check out the dealerships. Some rate better than others. I spent little time in the dealership when I purchased my Jeep. I'm very happy with it!

As with previous Jeeps, the maintaing of the vehicle is the secret to it's longevity. What can I say? It's a Jeep. It goes when and where I want it to in luxury. The door panels could be a little slimmer. Big people's knees go where the window switches are. Gas mileage is not terrible but that is not why I bought it.

I've owned 6 Jeep products in my life. Nothing compares to it. It's handling is excellent, it's reliablitlty can't be compared. You know when you go to your car, it's going to start right up and be ready for whatever task is at hand. I've driven Cadillac, Lincoln, and Lexus SUV's, but they still don't compare. Granted, the others have a little bit more in the way of "fancy things," but I still always go back to Jeep.

I'm still under warrantee...the only problem I had so far is that all of a sudden it started to run rough. I took it back three times and they finally found the problem after telling me that that's how it should run. They changed one side of the injectors....it's been a about 8 months and it's starting to run rough again so I will need to take it back. I also noticed that that the sliding door for the moon roof is tearing at the edges...don't think it should be doing that since I hardly use it. I think something is missing..need to have them look into that too.

I am over 6 feet tall and athletic build and I find that on long trips (1hr or more) my right leg starts to fall asleep. I've tried many different positions and cannot find a good one. I don't feel the seat is wide enough nor does the seat go back far enough for taller drivers.

I was searching for an affordable suv with a good strong name. My preferences were in comfort, off-road capabilities but something luxury as well. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V8 has all of the above and it is a smooth yet powerful suv. 4x4 is excellent for off-road. Great family suv with a good amount of space. I knew the minute I started to drive it that it was perfect. not very bouncy like other competitors and gas wasnt as bad as others as well. I can't wait to take a long road trip in my jeep. Dont forget the V8's towing capacity either the maximum is 6,500 lbs that is a large boat.

If you are in the market for an SUV drive the Jeep Grand Cherokee first because you will compare it to everything else you drive and I think you will come back to the Jeep.

The 4.7L V8 has handled every condition possible for the Northern VA/DC area. The powerful engine is amazing, and is awesome on hills. It can handle off- road, to a stroll in the neighborhood. The car has been built to meet great standards. Not only does the car look powerful, the Jeep is meticulously pieced together with strong, and reliable parts. When it all comes together, it is an agressive 4x4 that gives you the horsepower you love and luxury you need. Many people underestimate the capabilities of the Grand Cherokee, but they then learn that the SUV has one of the highest rated off-road suspensions in it's class.

Comfortable for long and short trips alike. Great acceleration for passing. Handles road imperfections smoothly and far less body roll than my '95 Laredo, it feels good. The vehicle does seem to wander a bit in a strong cross wind. I live on a dirt road in the mountains - QuadraDrive system is sure footed on all surfaces, including ice and snow. Heated seats are great. 18-20 mpg seems good for a V-8 SUV.

The GC is a great car to have around for the snow. I use to haul around my kayak and snowboard. The dealer is the worst place to go. They dont believe anything is wrong with the car when I bring it in. The air bag light went on and they couldnt figure out what was wrong with and told me the problem didnt exist. I took it to another dealer and they fixes it. They need a training on customer service. I used to have an Acura and they had great service. Next car I want to get is the MDX.

I LOVE THE SUN ROOF, THE 10 CD EXCHANGER, AND THE COMFORT. I AM IN HEAVEN WHEN I DRIVE IT BECAUSE IT IS SO EASY TO DRIVE, EVEN ON SNOWY ROADS. I HAVE NO FEAR WHEN I AM DRIVING MY OVERLAND.

This is my first Jeep and I have not had it very long but in that short time I have had it I have enjoyed it more than I have any of the other 4X4's that I have owned. I moved to the Jeep from a P/U and have not missed the P/U at all.

This Jeep is awesome for the money. 32,000 with every option you could need or want. Rides perfect. cool look. test drive one, buy one, you won't be disappointed. I love mine. the 4 wheel drive all time is PERFECT for a girl to drive in snow. it puts in the 4 wheel drive when you don't know you need it. too many options to mention. just go see for your self. i have drove many suvs and none are better in the same price range. of course if you want to spend 15000 more, go for a Tahoe

This SUV is a blast! Sold my '94 Jeep Grand Cherokee after 165K, which only had minor issues. 2004 model has a more comfortable ride than my older one. V8 offers a lot of power off the line or merging into highway trafic. You'll be in the fast lane before you know it. I was shocked the first time I looked down at the speedometer and saw 80, thought I was doing 65. The Special Addition comes with all the bells and wistles of the Limited at a lower price point.

I was a "dyed in the wool" GMC owner (1999 GMC Yukon SLT-4WD)until I went shopping.... The Jeep was almost as comfortable (albeit smaller), had more bells and whistles for the $$$, and the price was hard to beat. I have yet to take it on a long trip and the climate hasn't changed in order to test the A/C so "the jury is still out" but if first impressions are important, this JGC-Limited has definitely made a positive one. My wife has a 2000 JGC-Laredo and loves the body style as well as the way it "zips" around so we'll see if I feel the same after four years of ownership.

This is my 4th Jeep. Had oil pressure problem on the second day, returned to dealer who replaced sending unit. Two days later same problem, dealer replaced oil pump which didn't correct problem. They got me a rental and went to Chrysler for a solution. Got back to me 2 days later and said the car would be replaced. They took a lemon and made lemonade out of it. Great dealer, great response from Chrysler. With service like this in an unfortunate circumstance they proved again you can't beat a Jeep. Gegnas Chrysler-Jeep in Philadelphia is Great!

The ride is real busy and I'm only hoping that I will adjust with time. I owned a S-10 blazer for years. I hate to say it but the blazer was less expensive to operate and road better. I only hope I learn to enjoy the ride

I feel safe and protected in this SUV. It has an air leak sound when the heating sysem is in use, which is irritating and aparently normal. The mileage is bad...16 to 17 mpg. The grand cherokee is not as sporty looking as the limited. I recommend the Enumclaw delarship.The side to side motion does not feel as stable as the 2000 which I owned previously.

I researched many mid-size SUV's before buying the Grand Cherokee. For the money you can't beat the Jeep Grand Cherokee. I got a $4000 rebate on top of a really sweet deal. I drove the Explorer, Trailblazer, Murano; none of them had the comfort or ride quality of the Jeep. Of all the Grand Cherokee models, I think the the Special Edition is a great choice. It has the great looks of the Limited (including leather) without all the bells and whistles. Plus it costs about $3000 less than the Limited. If you are thinking of an Explorer, Trailblazer, Highlander, etc; do yourself a favor and look at the Jeep!

This is my 5th Jeep and the best. Major improvements over the older Grand Cherokees are engine performance of the new HO V-8 with improved HP and torque. The transmission is a much improved 5 speed automatic. The low end torque is great. The ride is improved but still lacks smoothness. The sound level is much improved. The Navigation is much better than the older style CD based Jeep Pod. The engine idle is a little rough but acceptable. The seats are great and provide good support and comfort. The vehicle is very functional and good looking.

So far with only 3000 miles, no problems to report. This is my 4th Jeep, 2nd Grand Cherokee, all with the excellent 4.0L inline 6. Best Engine in the Chrysler lineup since they stopped making the slant 6. Plenty of horsepower and the right combination of engine/transmission. I just wish it got better mileage. I have yet to get the advertised mileage of 16/21...I'm averaging 14-15. Maybe it will get better as it breaks in.

I totally disagree w/ Edmonds that it rides like a truck, and so does everyone else that I talk with. The V8 with 5 speed transmission is much more fun to drive and very smooth; IMO.The styling is great inside and out.I did have a number of problems with my 2001, but I believe that Jeep has strived hard for better quality in recent years.

I knew I was interested in either the Caddy or the Jeep even though they were two different types of vehicles. Well I found that the Jeep had a much better ride than the Caddy CTS, believe it or not.

I have been searching for about a month now. I've owned the 4 Runner and Highlander. I make long trips and the 4 Runner and Highlander were not that comfortable. Checked into the new 4 Runner but it lacked design both inside and out. Also checked into the Touareg, Pilot, Durango and Pacifica, but none had the Comfort and design that made me say wow! But the Grand Cherokee Limited was the perfect match for me and the wife. It had a sporty and refined exterior that really caught my eye and the interior is above all the rest as far as appointments and comfort. Best car I've ever owned.

I have owned this jeep for one week and can honestly say that I have no regrets about this purchase. I shopped around and test drove them all highlander, explorer, escape, pathfinder etc. But i kept finding myself returning to Jeep dealership for another look. The incentives certainly helped $4500.00 off right off the top along with dealer discount and fair trade allowance. No other make offered the generous incentives that Jeep so it made it a no brainer,plus the vehiclr felt much more solid than the imports.

I considered other SUVS before buying the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. And I was very close to buying the 2004 Ford Explorer. I had owned a 2000 Ford Expedition with which I was extremely pleased. So, I was assuming the Explorer would give me the same satsifaction. But a souring experience with the Ford dealer brought me to the Jeep dealership. I'm extremely happy that i did. The vehicle, outside of its rough on-road ride, is just marvelous. I've been geting about 18 MPG so far. It has all the features I wanted in a vehicle. I especially like the small cargo carrying capability and the flexibility of having a nice car to take to important functions.

The SUV is not safe in windy conditions above 10 miles. When driving in the wind the car feels like it is going to tip over. The South Carolina, Sumter dealer is rude and unreliable. Services thier are done to save company time. Items that don't need to be fixed get fixed and items that need repair are done poorly so the customer has to come back. Which leads to money coming out of the customers pocket. Repairs on warranty afer 30,00 miles has ahundred dollar deductiable. I do not recommed this car to anyone. Money can be spent better on other vehicles.

This is more of a short story than a review, but I was dead set on buying a Land Rover when I got a Jeep as a rental on a business trip. I drove the rental through Houston and for an hour outside of town on country roads and almost cried when it came time to turn it in. My husband and I both had Hondas that needed replacing and after test driving the Jeep he decided he had to have one too. Actually, my husband did have an older Cherokee in college and never had a single complaint about that car (unlike the 2 Hondas we had). Anyway, we've just been driving these new Jeeps for a week now, but it's hard to get out of the car, we love driving them so much.

I have owned 2 Jeep grand cherokees, the 2000 Grand Cherokee Limited, and now the 2004 Grand Cherokee Freedom Edition, I Love them both, they are dependable, easy and fun to drive...I can't really see how they can improve on perfection, but I guess we will find out when the 2005 models come out!!!

Buying the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee was the best design I could have possibly made. This is an incredible vehicle. Capability doesn't shy from the original American Motors Jeeps. I previously owned a 1986 Cherokee and was sad to depart with what I consider the most comprehensive and powerful 4- wheel drive system ever made. But, the 2004 is quiet, very comfortable, and the 4-wheel drive is still just as capable. Not only is it a great ride but it is a gorgeous design. The front fascia has been modified from the 2003 adding circular fog lamps which are excellent in all conditions. I would recommend this car to anyone.

But I found the replacement. I now drive a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Special Edition. It's color is black crystal. I love this car! Sporty styling with a spacious luxury interior.

Given the SUV foremat, performance, fun to drive, and economy levels are much higher than would be expected or than experienced with my friends' competing vehicles. First year, but with about 14000 miles of HARD driving, not a single reliability/quality/assembly issue. Replaced a 1993 Grand Cherokee with 170000 miles and similar satisfaction level for its time. An improvement in every respect.

We had a Jeep until Sep 11, 2001 when we picked up a new Subaru Outback which we really like. But,, it's not a Jeep. Once a Jeep owner you either love um or leave um. We love our Jeep. It sits up higher then the Subaru, it rides better then our 95 Jeep Limited and gets about the same gas mileage. We had a 6 cyl before so the 8 respondes better and has alot more power. Exterior is great and interior is wonderful. Overall rating, excellent!!!

I will continue to buy JEEP

Its not too big but big enough. My husband likes it for the the same reasons plus the features under the hood. this is our 2nd jeep the last one was a laredo. We tow a boat back and forth to california without hesitation. we travel to the mtns to ski and it gets us there and back in fine shape. so i strongly disagree on many of the reviews that protray it in a bad light. an awsmome car that looks sexy and rugged easy to park and on and on. it is not noisy either.

We have taken it on 2 long trips and its a fine car except it requires premium fuel and the economy is less than expected. It was picked up with a slight miss and it still does but worse when hot. The GPS has a lot of nice features and someday it will navigate using more roads so that direct routes can be used rather than just major roads. It is not as good as a hand held portable GPS for routing. It handles surprisingly well at high speeds and if you need some power its there when you need it. Its fast.

I have owned Jeeps since 1974. I switched from Toyota Land Cruiser. Best thing I ever did. I put 147,000 on my last one. Still going Strong. I did not buy the Jeep to collect Groceries or sit on a freeway parking lot. We use the wifes Toyota Camrey for that. We do a lot of off road in the mountains and camping. This 04 does everything I could expect.I particularly like the Lumbar Support, and the memory features. I will never depart from the Jeep line.

Extremely sporty feel to it. The uniframe is very rigid and seems to be very durable. Off-road it seems smooth and yet extremely responsive; just like the other Jeep vehicles. The ride is very different from the older Grand Cherokees, it doesn't rock nearly as much as before, and yet is still a great off-roader - in fact, I feel it's better. The Jeep feels very safe to drive. I like the steering much better than my previous, older Grand Cherokee. And although bigger, I feel more 'in-tune' with my vehicle and the surroundings than I did with my previous Jeep.

The engine is strong although quite thristy...what do you expect from a V8? The seats are much improved from my old Laredo. The off-road performance is great.

We've had our Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 2 weeks. It has a wonderful, spacious interior for passengers and cargo, with a decent fit and finish. The truck gets good gas mileage...for an SUV. Otherwise, the gas mileage isn't as impressive. The engine is so reliable, my friend who used to work at a Ford dealer with me called it bullet- proof. I may not of had it long, but friends and family have some, and they love theirs. Better than a Toyota Highlander or Honda Pilot, because the way I see it, they'd rust out before I've gotten my money's worth!! Not to mention, their reliability IS NOTHING SPECIAL, MAYBE EVEN BELOW AVERAGE.

I've owned two other Jeeps before and have had bad luck with them. I often wonder why I keep buying them. My 1999 Jeep gave me the most problems, bad brakes mostly. The dealership always helped and fixed the problems. I love the look of the Overland, the size and I can go almost anywhere. My friends have other SUV'S and they are so big you can hardly fit them in your garage, forget about puting on a ski rack! So far my Jeep has been great, NO PROBLEMS Hopefully I'll have this Jeep for a very long time.

Though i know it will chug a lot of gas, i truly enjoy the drive of this car and the seats are the most comfortable seats i have ever had the pleasure to sit in.

with $3K off the MSRP and another $3.5K off from incentives and a decent rate of 5.20% through Chrysler made this purchase a no-brainer - very worried I was making a mistake, but could not have been happier with the purchase - no other SUV with Leather, sun-roof, and inline 6 could be gotten for this price. And I got the 5/60K warranty for an extra $800.00

Completely Satisfied With Purchase!

I had been looking for a new car to replace my 97 Blazer for about 3 months and couldn't find the right mix of amenities I wanted at the price I wanted to pay. On a friends advice I went to the Jeep dealer to check out the Grand Cherokee. I had seen them on the road but didn't like the grey side body moldings on Laredo and didn't want to spend up the extra for a Limited just for exterior aesthetics and get a bunch of options I didn't want. The 2004 SE was everyth I was looking for in a new car. Great ca...looking foward to the first snow storm this winter...what more can I say!

We currently traded in our 1996 Limited Cherokee and purchased the 2004 special addition. Off the lot it is a wonderful vehicle very quite and plenty of power. The in line 6 has been around for a long time and jeep has really had good success with it. Don’t change a thing. Our limited had more options than the special addition but we never used all of them any way this was perfect fit for us. Leather, sunroof, CD, steering wheel controls for radio and cruise lade out Perfect!! And the jeep is the best looking vehicle in its class.

One problem after another...
