    My car

    I ACTUALLY WANTED TO REVIEW A GRAND CHEROKEE 3.1 TURBO DIESEL, BUT IT'S NOT LISTED, SO IT'S UNDER A DIFFERENT HEADING.

    I actually bought the car from a chap living in Glasgow, I paid £6300 for a 2000 w reg. TD FSH @ 66700m, to include: delivery. tax, mot, 7 month's comprehensive warranty and a full tank of diesel. Sounds a good deal doesn't it. ?

    On delivery everything was fine, I'd not driven one before so I didn't know what to expect. Two days after delivery, no air conditioning, then I noticed the driver's door didn't always unlock with the central locking, the drivers wing mirror refused to stay in memory.

    The ride was harsh and jittery, it seemed to twist when I went over the slightest bump, steering was very vague and the thirst was truly staggering.

    My wife refused to drive it, my dog couldn't get in it, it was too high, and to cap it all, it broke down at a level crossing. I had it lifted to a garage who couldn't find a thing wrong with it.

    So, I sold it with it's faults and warranty to a dealer for more than I paid for it.( the first time ever)

    This car is the worst I've ever had in my life, without one redeeming feature, oh, not true, it has a fantastic stereo, to listen to when the car won't go.

    My car

    Only had a day at the wheel so first impressions are...

    V6 Diesel is a fantastic engine. Performance is excellent. Despite some poor reviews, I thought the handling was precise and the ride smooth. Interior plastics a tad nasty. Sat nav misses touch screen facility and requires some time to master. I am tall so sadly head touched roof hence I can't buy this car. At the price, excellent value for money. Lasting memory will be its acceleration from a diesel engine. Good fun.

    My car

    The video review of the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee is rubbish. Within 100 miles of my home in Colorado there are 11,000+ mountain passes often snow/ice covered from November to March (lowest tempt has been -53 degress f.), scorching valleys with summer temps over 110, un-improved rock filled dirt roads through the mountains ,streams to cross for the best fishing and I-70 filled with drivers far exceeding the 70 m.p.h. speed limit.

    The 2006 5.7 Jeep Grand Cherokee handles it all in safety and comfort. It is a unique vehicle which fully meets its design goals and capacities. The interior, far from cheap or "plastic", is designed for function: fishng gear, huntng gear, camping gear, dogs, plenty of beer and God knows what else. It's easy to clean and hard to hurt.

    It is very comfortable for me at 6'@215lbs. Great sound system and outstanding G.P.S. trail capacity for finding my way home from the mountains after dark.

    The 5.7 Hemi is the perfect engine for mountain driving because of its aspiration, type fuel injection and valve design. High altitudes are no bother.

    This not a vehicle made just for highway travel. It is a real-deal 4WD! Other "SUVs" are not in the same category.

    My car

    I bought this car in May 2006, so it's still early days yet, but so far I have been very impressed.

    The engine is a gem: it's powerful, quiet, and relatively frugal for and size and performance. The ride and handling are good. There is bags of standard kit, and the price after negotiation means that it is tremendous value for money.

    The equivalent Land Rover Discovery 3 with the same equipment would be £10,000 more and three seconds slower to 60mph. BMW and Mercedes are £15,000 more once reasonably equipped, therefore the press are not comparing like with like. Don't listen to the press and drive this car for yourself to make your mind up.

    My only areas for critiscm are the plastics, which are not up to European standards, but again you are not paying that price premium.

    Overall, this is my second Jeep, and if this one performs as well as the last, I would gladly have another.
