Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


After reading almost all complaints with other 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I have to put in my two cents worth. I can relate to almost every complaint that there is. I just had both my front left and right window regulators replaced a month and a half apart, one just today at $327 with my employee discount. (I work for a car dealership) last month, I have had almost $500 worth of repairs for my power steering pump problems. I have had my brake rotors turned and resurfaced and am in need of doing it again. Then on the other hand, I have experienced problems with my dual control panel not working correctly which I have not have repaired yet because I don't have the money for that one and didn't know at the time that it was a problem. Then when my Jeep was under warranty I have had the air conditioner compressor replaced, new battery(for hard or no starting), amongst other repairs that I can't think of at the moment. I have also been experiencing hard starts with my truck and also the transmission not engaging or jumping (accelerating) while switching gears that the Jeep dealer has not been able to recognize as a problem. I feel that those new Chrysler commercials are not up to par as american and german engineering. Those germans know how to build vehicles in the first place and help repair them as the problem seem necessary.

The cooling fan blade just broke while stopped at a light. It made the car thump I thought someone hit us but the fan blades broke the fan shrode and put dents all in the radiator and broke the fan guard. This vechile has had many of the same problems due to the electrical system. We lease the Jeep and have put $$$ in it because they would not take it back as a lemon with in the 2 years. I still hear a beep coming from under the dash that Jeep never found the problem or fixed it. I just had the fan relay changed because it went out. With in the first 2 years I had it in the shop for a variety of electrical problems I have all the paper work. I am afraid the Jeep will catch on fire or cause an accident. I've also checked many other things that were issues with the Jeep. Leaking shocks and transmission pan and emissions is now leaking. The check engine light stays on and every time I get it checked it's a different problem. I'm out of my warranty now but there have been so many different things wrong. The dealer replaced 2 of 4 leaking shocks they left the transmission pan loose when they replaced a part in the transmission. This Jeep is unsafe for the road it has lost power in the past while traveling so they replaced the battery twice with in a month.
