Not as bad as the 1990 Chevrolets or Fords or still limping around needing tuneups. Please O pa, put the 3. We don't recommend these vehicles to anybody. A transfer case electrical failure may result in an unintentional shifting of the transfer case into the neutral position. The Grand Cherokee does comes with side curtain airbags for both the front and rear seats, as well as a standard electronic stability system and adjustable pedals.
The green alternative this year is a V-6 turbodiesel sourced from Mercedes, which offers better fuel economy. Started with 3K miles on it. The executive summary is this: Make sure you get the optional steering-wheel audio controls and learn how to use them. The truck was unloaded at the time and acceleration runs were gentle to maximize fuel economy. The fuel mileage and pulling power of the diesel are amazing. A transfer case electrical failure may result in an unintentional shifting of the transfer case into the neutral position.
Saving fuel should be our highest priority to slow down the Arab pipeline. The ride is harder then I like, but not bad. The Toyota and Nissan are both larger than the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but they don't share the Jeep's nimble off-road handling. It is actually a bit comforting to learn the V-6 will be made by Motori who made the 4 cylinder for the Liberty. What these numbers don't tell you is that while racking up such impressive performance figures, the diesel produces approximately 30-percent fewer C02 emissions than its gasoline-burning counterparts. Without the tuner, I got 28-29 mpg for a similar trip.
Great suspension set up Darkman on 05. It handles great in the snow! This car had only 38,000 miles on it and was nothing but constant problems. I love my Jeep except for the drive train of a Mercedes diesel engine. Obviously not, but not having to touch the brakes on a snow-covered road is nice. Some of it isn't great, but the real wood used in the Overland trim level raises the bar some.
It drives like a G500 Benz to me. Due to the Grand Cherokee's sloping roof line, there is no third row of seats available, and cargo room is limited to only 35 cubic feet behind the seats. Used 61% of the oi life and 3. It pulled that car on a dolly with ease even through the 8 inches of snow on the dirt road where I was staying that had not been plowed. The cargo area deserves mention because it was large with the rear seats up, and when they were flopped over I had plenty of room for my cross-country skis. If I change the fuel filter on schedule.
However, when fitted with the 3. Luckily a police officer happened to witness the whole thing. Another thing that made driving in snow easier was the fact that when you lifted off the accelerator, the Jeep slowed down. The first thing you notice is its power off the line--it feels unstoppable. The recall began August 19, 2015. I feel safe when driving it and I feel safe for my family.
Safety The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the Jeep Grand Cherokee a Good rating in frontal-offset crash tests and a Marginal one in side-impact tests. The first thing you notice is its power off the line—it feels unstoppable. It's just that between the 2008 and 2009 model years, the only things that changed were a new leather interior package and a redesigned Hemi, which the Jeep I drove. If you need gas mileage numbers look elsewhere. The oil life meter tracks my assumptions. This compares to a similar engine option from the 3.
Was getting 28 most of the way. We hope to see a full line of Jeep diesels available here in America in the near future. What made me like the interior was that it seemed to be good quality. I bought this for my daughter to replace her Honda. Note: Production of diesel fuel creates less pollution and energy than gasoline. So while mpg improves, fuel cost per mile doesn't improve as much, sometimes not nearly as much. Ourair suspension package came with full-time four wheel drive, which probably doesn't help fuel economy.
I lope jeep, planning on gettin a wrangler soon but we need more affordable diesels here in the States. I did alot of research on these engines and you wont find many issues with the engine or transmission, do your research on Mercedes and jeep engines not to many faliures, most common issue is faulty fuel or some old diesel. Interior is a little cheap, but nice. For instance, the Xterra is predicted by Consumer Reports to have better than average reliability. The Hemi is amazingly fast. I wish I could afford that! Finally, neither the cargo floor nor the height to which the rear hatch opens is so high that shorter people should have issues. The smaller V-8 is good enough, so you may want to pass on the larger 330-horsepower 5.
By that I mean I tuned it til the check engine light came on, then backed it off one turn. For Jeep, 2008 is a model year that offers a wide variety of engines. This veteran is in the know, see for your self. In light of these capabilities, the on-road everyday compromises you'll live with won't seem too bad. One thing I do not like is that they did not put a foot rest for my left foot when driving. Most people should definitely give this jeep another look and by the way.
