Why Not the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Materials & workmanship

pinion seal failed at 46,000 miles. Replaced at 47,000 with differential fluid change. Pinion bearing and u-joint failed at 52,000. U-joint is machine pressed so to replace the u-joint, whole driveshaft had to be replaced.

Powertrain performance

See above, pinion seal, pinion bearing, and u-joint/driveshaft had to be replaced at 52,000 miles.

Fuel economy

Never got above 18 MPG on highway driving.

Cargo capacity

Had more cargo room with jeep cherokee

Dealer practices

Dealer was cordial but they know nothing about customer service as they know there were some parts that failed but they were not going to back them at all.
