It is been a good ride, it has been a reliable car for 18 years.

I own a 2000 Jeep grand Cherokee. This vehicle has supportive, comfortable seats with many electric adjustments to get the perfect fit. This car has been very reliable, I have had to replace many things due to its age at this point but nothing unexpected. Now that the car is 18 years old, the left blinker is very unreliable, sometimes not working at all. This car is a v8 and feels very powerful to drive. It has safely gotten me through the snowy mountain pass many times. Overall, I love owning this car and plan on driving it into the ground.

My Jeep is the most reliable and durable vehicle I have ever owned.

The Jeep is very reliable however the blind spots are very thin. Aside from the blind spots, I would say that is the only problem I feel unsafe with ever if at all. I have noticed I have to change the tires more often than other vehicles I have own previously in the past. The brake pads tend to need changing often as well. I believe the constant upkeep is what contributes to the Jeep being such a reliable vehicle. I recently drove from Texas to California and with it being 18 years old, I have not one problem.

My vehicle can has a strong engine, can make it t.

The vehicle is great, I love to drive it. There are a few things I do notice and that's that the wheel sometimes can feel really loose, I think it's a great car and works better than the newer models. I do notice premium gas does get you further and the gas actually last longer. Otherwise it goes as soon as you put it in. You don't want to be cheap on this gas. I have went through a variety of terrain and have always felt safe and confident.
