Humble but very capable 4x4 by NorthEast Trekker on 10/25/2011. Trim: 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: These Jeeps last for a long time if you keep up with their maintenance. You see alot of these models still out on the road. Love the fact that my old jeep out performed my brother-in-laws Porsche Cayenne in the snow last winter. In short, my jeep got over the snow mound like it was taking a stroll through the beach while his Porshe could'nt.
Cons: Trunk cargo space taken up by spare tire. Could use more leg room for rear passengers.
Overall review: Excellent in the deep snow in 4X4 mode and can drive trhough a foot of water easily. Have 136K miles on my Jeep and no major issues until 133K (had trans cooler line blow, replace starter solenoid and crank shaft position sensor all within 6 months of each other), but it made it to 133K with nothing other than regular maintenance (how many younger cars/trucks can say the same?). Solid truck.
