My parents had a Grand Cherokee. Chrysler is notorious for having shoddy electrical in their vehicles as well as buying transmissions that don't have a good cooling system. Unsurprisingly, the electrical system was all messed up (screen on dash always said the tail lights were out, windows would sometimes work, stereo would sometimes work, headlights would sometimes flicker) and the tranny jerked into every gear and sometimes would go nowhere. Had to drive around in 2nd all the time in an auto. Eventually the 4 wheel drive stopped working and only the front wheels drove. It had a 318, so the engine was quite powerful and before the tranny took a turn for the worse, it was quite peppy. Also, tire wear was very uneven regardless of alignment. Personally, I would never buy an old one. I might go for the 2011 and newer since Fiat has their hands in Chrysler, now. Things seems to be a lot better for the company now as far as quality goes. Just my two cents.
