I've had three Grand Cherokees (93,96,and 2000)and they have all been great vehicles and trouble free. My son has a 99 Grand Cherokee with the "Up Country" suspension and it too has been essentially trouble free. My only complain is the "head shake" ride that comes with the live axle off road suspensions and the gear whine in the 2000 with V-8 and Quadra-Track. I know that Jeeps are suppose to be troublesome (i.e. Consumers Reports) but I just haven't found that to be true. I've been driving since 1956 and have owned 28 cars and the Jeeps have been more reliable than everything except Hondas I've owned. My Jeep has been over the Chuska Mtns.in Arizona and up Pleasant Canyon to Rodgers Pass in the Panamints and was a great ride. My son's has done very heavy duty as a geological research field vehicle throughout the Basin and Range without any trouble at all. He's thinking of getting a new G.C. in a year or two. I highly recommend them.
