Buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2005 or 2006
I love jeep and I am thinking about a used jeep grand Cherokee between 2005
to 2007. Since I am a student I am afraid of that these cars have some hidden
costs besides their gas milage. Could any body give some advice about how
much maintenance of this car in average is if I find one with around 100K+
milage on it?
and what aspect should I pay attention to when buying this car?
If your a student you better steer clear of Jeeps or any Chrysler product until you have a job that can support the high cost of maintaining it let along parts and labor costs. Engines and transmissions are both weak, the tranny went bad at 80K and the engine started burning a lot of oil at 130K other little annoying problems were HVAC, brakes, wiring. No more Jeeps for me.
The Idiot above probably didn't do any regular maintenance, oil/filter change every 3000 miles. i've had a 2006, used has 170211 miles, no issues, just tire replacements, tuning once. its a good car, just check out owners maint and take it to a garage and as opinion. be well..
Not advisable at all. For a student I suggest a Toyota Corolla or Camry instead.
