Jeep grand Cherokee Good family car

I like my car because it is spacious and comfortable to drive. The front seats driver and passenger have many different features to adjust the seat to your body comfort like laying back or positioning the seat higher for short people and even your waist area of your body can be readjusted if you want to be closer to the seat or if you want your knees higher. I feel secure in my car because it is an SUV and the Grand Cherokee has improved in its operational system to that I make reference to the motor, wheels, computer etc. I love the gas saving mode, even though it is an SUV which usually makes you think about the gas, this one save me a lot when it�s time to pay for gas because after a have a full tank it last me for 2 weeks. I also like the space, we moved from one side to the other of the Country and had no problem putting a bunch of our stuff in the care and my son was still comfortable in the back seat. It is a really good care for a family to have.

Jeep adventures, on or off the highway.

Our Jeep has taken us across the country, up into the mountains for camping and we've always made it home safely. Car is nice and roomy for all four of us. I really like the black wood trim. The full size spare tire is a huge plus. We've kept up with the required maintenance oil changes, tire rotations, spark plugs, etc. there�s been a few recalls on our car, we were notified and they took care of the recalls with no charge to us. We have cloth seats they're holding up very well, we've had car seats, booster seats and smeared melted chocolate that have come right off. The only thing I would like to add to our car is the panoramic roof, so we can see the trees or the stars if we decide to sleep in the car or go for a drive through the mountains. The self rising suspension would also be a plus. In the city our car does great on gas. On and off the highway our Jeep does great.

I got a black jeep! It�s 4 wheel drive.

Well my jeep is new to me. I've had it a few months now. 2012 jeep grand Cherokee. I did not want a black vehicle just because it�s so hard to keep clean. But it does look nice when it is clean! I just have to go through car wash more often. It drives very nice and smooth, it is hard to not speed because you don't realize you are going so fast. I haven't gotten to try the different 4 wheel drive features yet because it is summer. The one thing I do wish it had would be an automatic lift gate button. It looks like it�s an option mine does not have, it would just be nice. Mine came with nice weather tech mats and I really do recommend them, they are very nice and will help upkeep the inside well. Backup cam is very nice. Will need to look into a sun shade though because being black on black it gets really hot in there! Overall, very happy with purchase.
