2005 Jeep grand Cherokee needs some work.

My 2005 Jeep grand Cherokee is a fully loaded, leather interior with heated seats, SUV. I bought it about a year ago for 6, 000$. The motor was not an original motor from the car, it was replaced from a different one the same model and year. The car has a lot of different problems even though I take great care of it. Currently, it burns through oil like crazy, the abs light and traction control light is on because the fuse went bad. The check engine light is on because of the gas tank. It constantly shuts off while I am driving because it needs a new battery, and the tire fell off on the highway about a month ago. I have had to replace both front wheel bearings and the rear brakes twice. It leaks oil and the bottom is completely rusted. The car itself drives nicely when there's no issues and it was a very reliable car before all these issues started happening. Everything is generally cheap to fix too.

The Amazing Go-Anywhere, Survive Anything Vehicle.

The beast has four-wheel drive, power steering, a V-eight, and has made 2 long distance trips in the two years we've owned it. We also have heated seats, which for an arthritis sufferer like me is marvelous on cold days. We bought it used, and it has been a mainstay of our lives. It holds my electric mobility device and a month's worth of groceries easily, can go through the deepest snow without getting stuck, and is reasonably showy (for those who like such things.) Having bought it used, we found it had been neglected, yet we were able to continue driving it while making the necessary repairs. On the latest trip home from a long-distance trip, one of the two drive shafts developed a problem, yet we were able to get home safely and drove it about a week before the replacement part came in and we were able to get it fixed. It drives easily and reliably. It's a good vehicle.

Good looking vehicle with nice features.

It drives really well. Lots of power from 4.7 liter engine. Handles like a car. Comfortable seats with nice features--I.e. leather, moonroof, and seat warmers. Has electrical glitches. Check engine light has always come on and gone off sporadically. Engine often chugs and stutters in first gear. Transmission sometimes hesitates to engage, but it's an 05 with 203k miles on it, so what do you expect? My biggest complaint is the lack of interior space. It's a big vehicle that guzzles gas, so you would at least think it would be roomy. You'd be mistaken. It's fine for me because I'm single and have no kids. However, this would be a cramped and uncomfortable family vehicle. Even transporting friends is uncomfortable and aggravating.
