Jeep grand Cherokee Good family car

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

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.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

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.

Jeep life! Jeeps are for everyday driving or weekend camping and beach trips.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love my 2012 jeep! It is extremely comfortable and very spacious. The second row of seats go down so it is great for moving things or just packing up for a camping weekend! I love the higher up truck feel.. It makes you feel much safer than driving in a car! I have had my jeep for 3 years now.. I have had only one problem that needed to be fixed which was the gas throttle... And also a recall item! Besides that I haven't had any issues! When I found the jeep of my dreams it didn't have a sunroof.. That is was extremely imports to me.. So they were able to put one in.. The outcome was amazing! I highly recommend jeeps for safety comfort and reliability!

Keeping the Jeep: I have everything that I need in an SUV

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love my jeep grand Cherokee. Even in harsh winters it makes driving in the snow incredibly easy. It has automatic 4X4 and don't even have to think about turning it on or off when driving. All Terrain driving is easy and fun, I've had minimal maintenance issues, the interior is easy to keep clean, there are options to update my car as I want to with current and aftermarket add-ons. Customization is easy and the cost of scheduled maintenance has been reasonable. If there has been an recall, notification has been prompt and getting the repairs done at a Jeep dealer has been easy.

- Anna K

I love my jeep, very dependable

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I absolutely love my jeep! It's very comfortable, modern , dependable and drives so smooth and amazing. One con is that the brakes were easily and I have to push a little harder than on most modern vehicles, but I did purchase used with could be a factor to brakes. I live out in the Midwest suburbs so it gets pretty icy and snowy in the winter, but I have no worries about car trouble in the winter especially since I have such great tires on the jeep.

- Savannah M

Great SUV that provides a smooth and comfortable ride!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love owning my jeep grand Cherokee. There have been a few recalls but the dealership has taken care of those. It drives really smooth and is very comfortable, especially for long car rides. It gets decent gas mileage for an SUV. I will say one con is the battery location which is under the passenger seat and can be costly to have it removed and installed. Overall, I love my grand jeep Cherokee and would definitely purchase another one!

- Amanda R

A sporty look with a luxury interior

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

This is my first truck I have ever owned. I really love the look of the car. The leather exterior is great and easy to clean. It has a huge panoramic sunroof which is a nice touch. The radio is easy access with touch screen and controls on the steering wheels. As a new truck owner I do feel it is a bit bumpy and you hear some rattles as you drive. Overall I love the truck. It's a sporty look with a luxury interior.

- Kelly C

A very powerful car which makes me feel secure in the winter.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I bought this car about a year ago and it is great in the snow, the power it has is tremendous and I expect to have it for years to come. I have not had a problem until just a few weeks ago when the car hit around 105,000 miles. There seems to be a transmission leak and affects shifting when the car stops and runs again. Other than the leak the car runs smooth and has no major issues aside regular maintenance.

- Mauricio C

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is stylish, roomy and powerful!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

We love our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4. It's really roomy, stylish, and comfortable. It has plenty of cargo space as well as leg space and head room. It gets great gas mileage and performs well on long trips and up steep roads both on and off the pavement. Overall a nice family vehicle with plenty of new technologies to stay connected and for a safe driving experience.

- Sandra C

Jeeps aren't worth their price tag!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

The parts to fix a jeep are expensive for a domestic vehicle. I don't find the seats in my Jeep as comfortable as non Laredo jeep seats. The doors open and shut very aggressively. I worry about my daughter getting her fingers accidentally crushed because of the way they close. I probably wouldn't buy another jeep. In my opinion, they are overpriced for what you get.

- Stephanie H

Very great car. Perfect family and off-road vehicle

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

The 2012 Jeep Laredo is a wonderful car. I have a family of four and live in the country and it is luxurious enough inside for me but also great for going off road if I need it. Only one problem I've had so far with it is the oil pan bolt stripped extremely easy. I've noticed a lot of jeep and dodge models also have had this problem. Other than that, a wonderful vehicle

- William B

It's A super comfortable. A great family car.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Very comfortable and reliable. And love the mileage. It is very eco efficient. The only problem right now it's a cracked windshield but nothing big. As long as you give it its regular oil changes and tune ups it's still working great. The ac works great and it is seven years old with one thousand miles and it is still running like a champ. I love it.

- Carol E

Nice looking, dependable SUV with low maintenance!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I bought it lightly used and other than an air filter change, regular oil changes, tires, etc. The vehicle has been low maintenance. It drives smooth and is excellent in the snow. I have always been a jeep owner. They are pricier than other similar sized SUVs but the quality is high on these vehicles and they run for hundreds of thousands of miles!

- Kate K

Love that sporty SUV for Mom

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I have always enjoyed SUVs and have driven several. The Jeep was a more sporty style that I was looking for. I wanted the room with kids but I didn't want the mom SUV look. It has been a good vehicle. Things that have been worked on are standard things that come up with any vehicle. I love that Jeep has not drastically changed the body style.

- Amy P

Lots of space, comfortable, great speakers.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love my grand Cherokee! Even though it's a 2012, there are so many convenient additions such as heated seats, XM radio, call buttons on the steering wheel and it will even tell you when you need something changed! There is plenty of trunk space and I am easily able to have two or three car seats In the back! Perfect for a family

- Kelly F

The color of the car is different than others

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

The car has many problems. Makes loud noises, runs thru gas quick. Takes forever for ac to kick in the summer and in the winter the heat barley kicks in. Not a lot of legroom only one of the radio speakers work. The other only works if the passenger side door is open. Not a lot of room in the trunk for like gas and what not

- Madison N

My car makes me feel safe and proud.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Smooth drive, efficient on gas, I have had this particular model for several years and haven't needed breaks, tires, or anything major yet. Very reliable, I feel safe driving it. The get up and go is great to. It is only a six cylinder engine but accelerates like an eight. I love my car - I am proud to drive it.

- Dag S

Great vehicle for families of four.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

It is very expensive buying gas for the car. The check engine light is always on no matter how many times I take it to the shop and I go through brake pads faster than I did in my last car. But it also rides very smooth for a truck that size and has a ton of space for 5 people to sit comfortably.

- Peter W

Comfortable ride and love the backup camera and remote start.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Car had several minor incidents that had to take several trips to the garage and it also had several recalls with another set of trips to the garage. Comfortable ride nice leather and heated seats with remote start. Not great on gas. Love the backup camera and the Sirius satellite radio as well.

- Sur S

Lifetime Jeep Fan - Will Buy Another

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

My Jeep is very reliable. It's very comfortable to drive and has never really had any problems. The only times I've had to take it in for maintenance has just been for regular checks/maintenance work + any recalls that Jeep sends me via mail. It is very spacious and has all the features I need.

- Kendall W

Every time I 'shop' for a new vehicle I drive away loving my Jeep even more!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I have had my Jeep for more than 5 years with ZERO problems! The most ironic part is that I have gone vehicle shopping 2 times during that 5 years looking for an 'upgrade' which for me included a full blown excel analysis. After extensive research I come to the same conclusion - I LOVE MY JEEP!

- Kylie Z

Very dependable family car

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I have not had a great deal of problems with the car over the years with regular maintenance. I am a busy mom that appreciates the space, comfort level and reliability of the car. Jeep dealerships are always in abundance. The car drives well, looks nice and has always been a pleasant ride.

- Leslie M

It allows me to sit higher than a lot of other vehicles, which I prefer.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Great ride. Safe but will dent/scratch easily. Never had any issues with engine or brakes despite the multiple recalls I've had to get done at the dealership. They perform the recalls fixes for free. Comfortable fabric seats. The plastic on the inside is sturdy but will get dusty quickly.

- kristen Y

Very spacious and comfortable. Sturdy and can take on many different terrains.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

It is super comfortable and a very reliable vehicle. There have been a few recalls, and some of the sensors on the car have gone out so it makes the lights on the dash appear even tho when I had the car looked at everything was fine. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is great for a family vehicle.

- Alyssa C

It handles water great. Drives really smooth

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I haven't had any issues with it. When we first got it the lights were already out and you could tell the dealership didn't take the best care of it. There's a loud noise from the windshield when you're on the interstate. It drives great and handles water well. It's also good on gas

- Zack M

Great vehicle. It has been reliable and I love it.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I've really enjoyed my jeep. The cruise control button has given me some problems sometimes. But other than that I have had any problems, it is very reliable. I live in Wisconsin and it does really well in the snow. I love the leather seats and the Bluetooth calling is very nice.

- Eric K

I just love 4 wheel drive!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

4 wheel drive really makes a difference driving in snow, better than all wheel drive. Driving on the beach you need 4 wheel drive as the sand can get really soft 4 wheel drive in low keeps you from getting stuck. Driving on highway is a breeze especially with the moonroof open.

- Sheila D

Dependable car for person who drives 30k a year

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

The car has been really reliable. I just 7 years I have put on 200,000 miles as I drive a lot for work and if you keep the maintenance up it still runs like new. Have been very satisfied, and will buy again. The car has all the needed features and is a comfortable ride.

- Chris C

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love the way it looks and the way it drives. It has all the bells and whistles: navigation, heated seats, leather interior, park assist. I like that it can sense when to shift into 4-wheel drive. I don't love the gas mileage, but for an older SUV, it's not terrible.

- Sandra O

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2012 review

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Fuel economy around 20 mpg with highway driving. Pretty reliable and no major problems. Does great in the snow and hazardous weather. I should have opted for the model with the touch screen. Could use more storage room in the trunk. Only able to fit a max 5 people.

- Fritz F

2012 jeep grand Cherokee review.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

My car does very well and seems to be very sturdy. Great car but burns a lot of gas. I would definitely recommend my SUV to other because of its great features and stability. I also love the speaker system that it has in it. Great all around car and would recommend.

- Will T

Perfect vehicle for snow.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Beautiful vehicle with amazing handling capabilities. 4wd perfect for snow and rocky roads. Quality sound system with satellite radio capabilities. Plenty of room in the rear for cargo and seats fold down for extra space. Includes rear wiper and automatic windows.

- Morgan M

My family car-ride or die.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Had for over 6 years with minimal maintenance, great for travel, comfortable family car, handles well in winter weather and drives great on the beach. I'll drive it forever if I can. We have traveled in it many times and always had a nice ride. Held value nicely.

- Kelly H

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

I love my Jeep. It does have minor issues that are annoying like tire pressure lights, key battery being low, and bad gas mileage. It is great for family trips due to it being very spacious. There is enough room for two full sized car seats for the back seat.

- Tiara M

great midsize family SUV.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Overall reliable vehicle. With regular maintenance, no issues. Regular oil changes, tire rotation, air filter. The battery is under the passenger seat which is really strange. Thermostat went bad over winter, quick easy fix, cheap part, did it in my garage

- Andrea G
