You'll Like The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee If...

If you want a traditional SUV that offers good outward visibility, a roomy and functional interior, and solid off-road chops, you'll like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. That said, buyers who never make use of its robust character will still find the Grand Cherokee impressively comfortable on road.

It was the very first car that I ever negotiated and bought and leased by myself.

I loved my Jeep grand cherokee from the day I got it even up until today, even in the shape it is in. I think things began to go wrong after the warranty expired. First it was the automatic start, next I had problems with the fob (it wasn’t the batteries). Then the locks went, then the heat stopped working on the front passenger side. Next it as the heat that went last winter on the front passenger side. This summer, I began exp travel with the functionality of the automatic windows. It is time for a new car.

Love my Jeep a trustworthy SUV!

I got my Jeep grand Cherokee 3 years ago. It was used with about 60, 000 miles. I have always love Jeeps they are very durable. Well so far my Jeep has not given me any problems. I have put in another 60000 miles and no problems whatsoever. I do get oil changes every 3 months and have change tires, but about motor, transmission or any big expensive problems nothing so far. I love the build in GPS I never get lost now. Inside is leather and seats are very comfortable.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 70th anniversary edition, review!!

We just recently purchased the Jeep, and absolutely love it! The interior is so comfortable, sometimes I find myself sitting in it in the driveway b4 I enter my house!! It drives like a dream, this potholes you see, well we tried them out and damn!! Takes them like no problem, but we do steer away usually, the 4wd we love cause we don't need to hit any buttons, if the tires slip on anything it automatically kicks in!! Amazing technology!!
