Other Jeep Grand Cherokee (2005 - 2010) models:

  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    It says I,m not really a `save the whale` type. It also says I like what I like and I,m not for buying what everyone else says I should buy.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Generally approved. Although most diesel owners that are skint or tightfisted (or both) can`t get their heads round the fuel economy thing. It,s not like I tell them to cut back on their food bill for their fat kids is it?

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes. I will probably buy the newer model when I,m due a change. These cars will soon be extinct. Like the Concorde , we`re becoming `greener` but going slower in the process.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Jeep SRT8 . The 6.4L.

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    March 2014

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Deal was alright to be fair. From a main dealer especially the price was good and the car came with an approved Jeep warranty.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I have had several Jeeps and needed a practical and fast car.

    What was the dealer like?

    Dealer was good but the sales person was very `economical` with his description in terms of minor flaws of the car.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    This `4x4` will absolutely demolish nearly everything on the road performance wise. Off the mark it will absolutely murder all but the fastest road going cars. Focus RS`s Subarus etc would be genuinely embarrassed off the lights. From a daily driving aspect, I used this car for a week solid recently to transport fishing rods and gear around with people to various locations and it was excellent. It really isn`t the biggest inside to be honest, with other 4x4s offering more room but I bought it purely the engine and performance.

    What's it like to park?

    Easier than a 3 door hatchback Astra.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing so far.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It has a decent sized boot and the open hatch is handy (like my last GC) for easy access.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The interior , ie; the SRT seats are lovely.
