We were also impressed by its carlike handling, although the suspension bounced a lot on San Francisco's pothole-filled streets. Love the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. By Friday it was a loud knocking. Jeep told me not to contact my insurance till they inspect it to see what's going on with it. The dash is very straightforward, with rotary analog gauges and big air-conditioning and heat controls. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N23. Front airbags, a tire-pressure monitoring system, and traction control are standard.
If you tow a trailer regularly, or if you need gobs of torque for off-road driving, the diesel may be your best option. Off-roaders and those who tow will want the 4x4 Popular Equipment Group, which includes a wiring harness and hitch receiver, as well as skidplates, tow hooks, and all-terrain tires. Remedy Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the final drive controller which governs the transfer case, with new software, free of charge. Navigation is usesless, and has been for years!!! And the only people that can sit back there are kids without car seats, because of the poor leg and head room. Come on Jeep what are you waiting for? It worked great when I got it and boom, within 3 months, only 2 windows work. This last week it stalled out backing down a ramp and had a rear end wreck. They renewed the B2B warranty at that time but I did not realize that did not include power train.
For anyone else having issues with their 5. Even with the Cherokee weighing 4,735 pounds 700 pounds more than the pre-2005 version , we found the acceleration impressive and had no problem getting up to freeway speeds, even on fairly short on-ramps. And I cannot set my rear view mirror on the same side. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Do not buy this car.
The Bad The interface for the stereo and navigation system on the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a bit awkward. Of course I expected the 420-horsepower Hemi V-8 to be a giggle, but I was totally surprised by its ability to unload its power in such a sophisticated way. The theme here is choice, but the 5. It only worked in the highest setting. The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee's navigation system was fairly accurate, although it did take a while to recalculate a route if we missed a turn. The transmission shifter assembly has been in for repairs in late part of the 2007. The year prior was the 60k maintenance.
Warning indicated low tire pressure while driving in the rain. Chrysler's number for this recall is P41. When I got back into my jeep to go home, my vehicle started up with a heavy miss like a spark plug was totally fouled and not making a spark. I have been keeping up with maintenance and constantly checking fluids and taking it to mechanics every time something sounds a little odd. All around I've had electrical gremlins since the month I purchased the car, and I put less than 10k miles on it in 2 years. Two weeks in the engine light appears and a noise like something stuck in the tire starts.
The transmission had gone out again. I'd go for leather seats with my next Jeep. I took it to the dealership for the multifunction switch problem; they said nothing was wrong even though my head and interior lights would randomly go off when driving. You sit up high in the Liberty, with a good view of the road ahead. I was not told but not sure. It looks like the offspring of a and a , snatching styling cues from each end of the Jeep lineup to create a unique look all its own.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Replaced Master Brake Cylinder and Fluids. Even the steering rack went at 40k. Had to be towed to dealer several times. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. I don't think there have been enough complaints of this issue for it to be looked at by the dealer but something needs to be done so more people don't run into similar problems.
The recall began on August 15, 2013. The one thing I thought I could always rely on would be engine. On the inside, the seats are comfortable, but rear legroom and cargo space both seem a bit limited. I do not drive the vehicle hard at all, check gauges and engine light came on, engine over heated and I towed it to the dealer. It would be nice if the driver's seat was a more comfortable perch, though — it's a little hard, and the thigh support is too short.
Honda's Element is a cool vehicle. So I have to leave it unlocked all the time now because I cannot reach to unlock all the doors when my family gets in. It's been sitting at my friend's ever since. No adult can comfortable ride for more than 10 minutes. We found the stereo controls on the back of the steering wheel easy to use, especially since we could keep our hands on the wheel without looking down to find the buttons. I've always promoted the quality in Chrysler and have owed multiple Chrysler in the past. It's a very civilized design, but not overly grown up.
I am having the same problem again in Jan 2010. I had to have my kids climb back there and use the emergency unlock to get it open. The steering wheel has cruise-control buttons on the front and audio controls tucked on the back--a good thing, since the dash radio controls are a bit of a reach for the driver. As I got back into the Jeep to now go home, Engine revved high and than shut off. It's a lot of metal for the money. This is the last Jeep I ever buy.
