I looked at a 2004 Limited today with 76k miles on it and a v8 engine. It was a really nice car.

Does anyone here have that body style jeep from 2000 to 2004?

Pros and Cons of this jeep?

Its a V8 and I was wondering how the gas mileage is.

They are asking $10500 for the jeep - Is this a good price?

I would be trading in my 2001 Ford Escape and I am wondering how much room I would gain from the jeep.

Thanks

If you're concerned about gas mileage, do not buy a Jeep. The 6-cylinders are below average, and the 8-cylinders are worse.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee that I'm just getting ready to sell. I averaged 18mpg in mixed use over the 20k miles that I owned it. On highway only trips, I got closer to 20mpg. Gas mileage is ok for its size, but I still feel like I was refueling all the time with it.

Pros (limited model) - heated seats were great in winter, climate control was great to have, 4wd is great in Jeeps

Cons - climate control module can cause headaches when car gets older, gas mileage could always be better these days; the trunk area isn't as big as I'd like due to the shape, the top half of the car curves inwards and you can get larger things in the trunk.

I had a relatively good run with mine, but got it extremely cheap. They seem to hold their value quite well; the inline-6's last forever, and the 4.7L V8 has been very good also. On the limited- watch for oil leaks around the oil pan gasket and rear main, put the climate control through its paces and test it at several settings, be sure to drive the vehicle in 4wd if it's a Selectrac transmission, watch for rust around the wheel wells/arches
