    My car

    This is my second Grand Cherokee after a Range Rover. My first was a 1997 4l petrol. I though that was good, this one is brilliant. I cannot understand why it so poorly rated. My other car is an E Class Mercedes with the same engine. That will do 40 mpg on my 10 mile run to work. The Jeep will do 30 mpg. That is keeping to the speed limits which the majority is 60 mph.I did not achieve this until after 2000miles. I have now done 3000miles.I need this car to take cattle to the market and move horses around. the BMWX5 and Volvos are too light to do this safely. I studied in great detail all the 4X4s before I purchased this one. It was ahead on all counts i.e. fuel economy, towing capability,specifications and particularly value for money. Thank you Jeep

    My car

    Agree with all the positive comments here. Wonderful engine and gearbox combination, effortlessly powerful and more 'direct' to drive than it's Mercedes ML sister. Quite happy with 28mpg knocking around and 32mpg on a long run.

    Good size, image and styling; abit like a slightly squashed RangeRover Sport [none the worse for that], but half the price and a darn sight quicker!

    We never thought seriously about a Jeep before they teamed-up with Mercedes but what a combination; sexy Jeep style with German technology, a perfect combination. And they are built in Austria!

    Grand Cherokee is the best looking car in the Jeep range and an absolute bargain. Best colours? Black, Grey or Blue...

    My car

    I have a secondhand 5.7 litre version which was a bargain at current prices. It is an ideal car for the pensioner being easy to climb into, has great maneouvreability given its size, and with the wonderful engine a treat to drive with bags of power when needed. It is used mainly for fun in and around Derbyshire and with a low annual mileage costs are acceptable. I previously owned a Cherokee 4.0 litre straight six which was enjoyable but skittish in the wet -this car handles rather better. Without entering into the politics or science of changes in climate, now is the time to buy a big engined car for low mileage enjoyment and use other means for long distances or commuting.

    My car

    After 18 months of ownership I feel qualified to comment on this excellent vehicle. Frankly I am sick of road-testers putting Jeep quality down; our current 3.0CRD has been 100% reliable and the interior does the job more than adequately - nothing falls apart. It’s no good expecting £50k Range Rover trimmings in a vehicle half the price – people get with the plan. All you have to do is read the rave reader reviews here from the people that matter, the people who own and drive them every day. Basically the GC is an honest, powerful vehicle with an excellent image; something alittle different from the herd. Also, it’s startlingly good on long runs with overall refinement surprisingly high. Improvements? Perhaps abit more economy could have been eked out of the superb engine but the power on-tap is a hoot! Previously mentioned windscreen pillar and tunnel intrusion are noticeable at first but really aren’t a problem once acquainted. For the money they are unbeatable and over a year old they're a bargain. Only car that betters it is the original X5 but they don't tow as well.........
