***several problems with 2005 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 3.7*** just after purchasing this vehicle in Feb 2006 dealer had to replace the air conditioner because it would only work at one speed. After that the transfer case and shifter had to be replaced, next the windshield began to leak molding the carpets, next the steering wheel began making loud clicking noise when making deep turns, vehicle also has severe hesitation when going up hills, now my mechanic says there is transmission fluid all under the vehicle. Have also bumped my knee against the key resulting in stalling. Worst of all only getting 12-14 mpg!!!!!!have owned Jeep in the past, very unhappy with this one.
