Driving my vehicle is exciting and not a task.

I have had my vehicle for 9 years, and have not had many major problems other than regular things that I believe need to be maintained on any vehicle. It is currently at 130,000 miles as well. A couple of years ago, my transmission misfired, so I replaced it with a rebuilt transmission. I am currently having some problems with the automatic brake system, and I need to have the vehicle looked at for that. I have also had to replace parts of the ac because that has had problems on and off over the years. I love my jeep, and I hope it will last me many more years. It is comfortable and the perfect size for my family. Because it is a v8, it does use a significant amount of gas, but it is affordable for me. I also love the feel of the v8, as it makes me feel more powerful and in control of my vehicle when driving. The leather on the two front seats has deteriorated over time on the seat portion, and I have had to get seat covers. However, the seat warmers are one of my favorite features and still work wonderfully.

The Jeep needs a lot of work, but I'm not sure how much it will Cost to fix

The Jeep that I drive was my parents and when they first got it they had problems with the engine. So they went and got a whole new engine for it, then the front wheel bearing was messed up and the whole wheel came off while they was driving on the highway, so they had to get that fixed. Next was the air conditioning, it�s still not working to this day but when they took it in the mechanic said that it just needed charged and freon put in. It worked for a little bit then it stopped working again. So now the air conditioning still doesn't work and the transmission is about done for and the same front wheel bearing is messing up again and it probably needs an oil change. It still runs but we try not to drive it long distances. Just locally

Jeeps: built to get you where you want to go, no matter the road conditions.

Living in an area that gets a lot of snow, a vehicle like a jeep is a must in my book. This is not my first vehicle purchase but it is my second jeep grand -Cherokee. They handle really well in bad weather conditions, I have yet to get stuck in the past 4 years that I have driven one. The gas mileage is not the best however, this is fairly typical of most SUVs. Jeeps are generally built like tanks, I drove my last one until my gas tank nearly fell off, this being said they've proven to be fairly dependable and built well. The few mechanical issues I have had to deal with in owning these jeeps are things most vehicles need fixed once they have a certain number of miles, nothing out of the ordinary.
