Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.7 CRD Limited 5d Auto (2003/53) - Owner Review

On long journeys the Grand Cherokee handles the task well with an enjoyable ride for passengers. The Jeep suffers some time on bends with caution needed as to not overstep its handling limitations.

Jeep Grand Cherokee (99-04)

Value

3 out of 5

Residual value is not a strong point of any Jeep, but the overall package stands in value per annum.

Costs

5 out of 5

Taking advantage of a 2 year free servicing pack from Jeep has meant value for money in annual running costs. Insurance could be lower for the class of vehicle and MPG achieves well at an average of 26 combined.

Driving

4 out of 5

On long journeys the Grand Cherokee handles the task well with an enjoyable ride for passengers. The Jeep suffers some time on bends with caution needed as to not overstep its handling limitations.

Performance

4 out of 5

The Mercedes Engine and Drivetrain perform very well with masses of torque available for strong acceleration. Only gripe will be the 2.7 CRD engine is noisy and somewhat obtrusive.

Reliability

5 out of 5

A strong point of the 2.7 CRD is it's excellent reliability over the 6 cylinder / V8 petrol versions. Mercedes Engine and gearbox are very reliable.

Image

3 out of 5

Image does not seem as strong as BMW or Mercedes from "The School Run" perspective, but believe the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a stronger off-road "rugged" image due to excellent advertising. Less of a "Chelsea Tractor" than the competition.

Comfort

4 out of 5

A strong point for the Grand Cherokee. Seating is excellent and long journeys cause no discomfort for any passenger. Rear legroom would be the only point of concern.
