The 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a marvel of bad design. Numerous recalls have came from this design, and it covers a swath of items from drive train, to the air conditioning system, to interior problems such as faulty electronics. The Jeep is a true four wheel drive and does good in snow and off roading. It'll even go over curbs no problem. It is a unibody design which makes it lighter than other SUV's such as Ford who offer a body on a frame design as in their Excursion line. Gas mileage is typical of the SUV's from this time frame. Mine gets around 16 in the city, and 19 on the highway. It has enough room in the back to haul cargo such as chairs, or PVC pipe or camping equipment for three people. My Jeep has the 4.0 Liter, inline six cylinder engine and has over 200,000 miles on it. ... (more)
Historia
I took my Jeep off roading one day and it did wonderful. I had a full size spare tire on top, and me and my friends went to an area for off roading that a normal car wouldn't even make it over the first rock. The 4WD system worked great.
A Favor
The 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a unibody design which makes it lighter than a SUV which has a separate frame and body. This means better gas mileage, and it handles rough terrain better in my opinion. The Jeep came with many accessories that I liked such as a useable roof rack that can hold quite a bit of things such as bikes, camping equipment, even furniture. I used it once to move a mattress and box spring. You could carry book cases on top, or even a recliner. The Jeep came with a cassette deck and 4 speakers. Two in the front doors and two in the back. They still sound great despite ... (more)
En Contra
This year model Jeep has a few problems which seem to be the result of bad designing. The first problem is brakes. They simply are not large enough to really stop this big vehicle as quickly as a smaller car. You may be saying to yourself, "well its a heavier vehicle." That would be true except when I say you have to land on these brakes to stop it, its no joke. Most people I know who drive a smaller car that have driven my jeep say they can't stop it because they aren't used to pushing the brake pedal down so hard. The air conditioning system is the next big issue, There have been recalls... (more)

This SUV has been pretty good and would be a great vehicle if there weren't issues with the computer and electronics. I have over 250,000 miles on it. When it's working right, it still drives great. I have used it as a local get around vehicle and used to commute to a job that was a 6-hour round trip drive. The suspension has always been good, and the ride is always smooth. The biggest issue I've had is with the computer. When they go bad because they are remanufactured parts, it's hit or miss when you have to get a new one. I have had 4 computers, and two of them worked longer than the warranty. When the computer goes bad, it throws codes for about 5 different sensors. The first time around, I changed out all the sensors, and then within a week or so, I had the same stalling issues th... (more)
Historia
Long road trips that we had plenty of room to stretch out in even with a bunch of women and their over packing for a weekend trip.
A Favor
Sturdy and solid. Lots of cargo room. Comfortable seating and seat settings for even a short person. Still runs smooth with high mileage. Great handling in snow and wind. I feel safe in it.
En Contra
Doesn't have great gas mileage. This model does have some electronics issues that have no recall as of yet.
