08 Jeep grand Cherokee: a car built as tough as the original.

I like my vehicle well enough. It has all the important things: good ac, automatic windows, leather seats (at least I am pretty sure they're leather), decent gas mileage, reasonable seating, and more than enough room in the back for groceries or other daily things. It even has heated seats, which come in handy during the winter and helps the car feel a little more cozy. My car has over 100, 000 miles on it, and despite a few replacement parts over the years (lights, flash relay, brakes), it still runs pretty well. Nothing super substantial like the engine or the transmission has been replaced, nor does it need to be. Lately, it has been consuming more fuel than usual, but I think it just needs a tune-up. All in all, I think it is a great car to get you from point A to B, or a great starter car for a teenage driver. Besides what I have already mentioned, I do not have anything else bad to say about it.

Great safety features. Great family friendly vehicle.

I love my vehicle. It is the first Jeep that I have ever owned and glad that I took the leap to purchase it. It is a small SUV perfect for a family of four. Open trunk space with seats that can be folded down so that you can transport and move things if needed. So if you are afraid of a truck then this vehicle makes up for it. I love the safety features that come with it as well. The car tells me when my airbags on the passenger side is off. It has child safety locks and when you reach a certain speed while driving your doors automatically lock. It has a warning sound that does not stop until you put on your seatbelt that helps to keep you safe. It is an amazing family friendly safe vehicle.

Not too big, not too small of an SUV. Drives wonderful in the winter.

Basic needs are met with the vehicle. I enjoy the split folding back seats which comes in handy for our many camping trips. The SUV is not too big and not too small. Where I live the winter's can be terrible, what I love about this car is that it automatically turns the 4 wheel drive on so there's nothing to flip or click..just focus on driving. In addition, I have never been stuck in snow and the car drives wonderful in the winter! What I dislike, is that it does not have Bluetooth on the stock radio. If I wanted to add Bluetooth, I would have to buy a $600 part even though the radio is the same as the other years, they have included that part, but not in the 2008.
