2002 has some problems, but are still nice.

We bought ours used, and unfortunately from someone who ended up not being very reliable. We've had a lot of problems with it: the wiring that controls the automatic windows has gone out, so the only window that works is the driver's side in the front. There's a problem with the fan for the heater, so the driver's side vents only blow cold air, and the liftgate in the back will not stay up by itself all the time, so you either have to keep something to prop it up, or just hope it does not fall on your head when you are trying to load or unload stuff. It is all stuff that is fixable, of course, and once those things are fixed, it'll be a great car. It is reliable, it runs well, and it gets great gas mileage. But, if you are considering getting an older grand Cherokee, make sure it is older than 2002, because those do not have all the problems with the wiring and heater going out.

You just cannot beat a jeep!

I have only had this jeep for a few months. It is an upgrade from my last jeep grand Cherokee. She rides very comfortably. Seats are cloth which is always better in the summer so you do not burn your skin and the winter so you do not freeze. I like the fact that it is very simple regarding features. I will say that I would give this vehicle a 5 if it did not have electric seats. Electric seats always pose the potential for breaking down. Love the rear window wiper. Also love the fact that you can open just the rear window without opening the entire back of the jeep. Handel's great in snow and ice, but remember your vehicle performs better with newer tires.

I love all the options to come of the Grand Jeep Cherokee. I love the color.

I have had a lot of issues the past year replacing parts multiple times and would not recommend anyone to buy an older jeep. The vehicle offers a lot of options. Very comfortable and if you have a family it's perfect for trips and loading up things. It has all the options for electric seats sunroof tinted windows states by down easily 10 disc CD changer all four wheel drive. If you have someone who can work on Jeeps reasonably they're not a bad thing to have but if you don't have to pay a shop to do all the work I would have been out probably $12,000 this past year.
