We love our Jeep an the 4 wheel drive is amazing.

I love my grand Jeep Cherokee. We have had a couple issues with the sunroof being clogged and having to put new drain lines in the sunroof which was not that hard and works like a champ. The back windows motor have went out so we have to replace them at some point. Then there's a noise in the dashboard when you turn the engine off it makes a load drawn out clicking sound for at least ninety seconds. All in all no matter what kind of older vehicle you get they all have some type of issue but we love our Jeep.

The heated windows in the winter time.

My Jeep is an awesome car, especially for living in the mountains. It does good in the snow and has very minimal problems. I have the v8 engine so it is a gas guzzler and uses up oil pretty quickly. My car is the limited edition Jeep so it has black leather seats and interior and has heated seats and windows and also has a sunroof. This car is perfect for the summer and the winter. When I do have problems with my car it is affordable and fairly easy to fix. Overall, I love my car.

Things I love about my Jeep.

I love my vehicle because it has leather heated seats and a sun roof the seats flip down so that I may carry many things I had a tow package which was amazing and it was very helpful for pulling a trailer. The vehicle size is perfect for me it is not too big and get in the way but it yet it is not too small for being on the highway. I am a mother of 3 children so trying to do luggage groceries and backpacks is a big deal and I love the space in the back.
