Need vehicle opinions - Jeep Grand Cherokee

So I'm thinking about breaking my streak of buying minivans at 5, and am considering a small SUV. I like the style of the 99-02 years, and they're in my price range.

Anyone have experiences with these? There seems to be a lot of them out there. I'm leaning towards one with the IL 6 cyl since it probably does better on gas and the V8 is really crammed in there and likely a bitch to work on.

Thoughts?

I don't have to, because the other real car guy in this thread already did for me. What a shock that you skipped right over this reply:

"Odyssey for sure. The Sienna is coming into its own but it struggles to hold the market against the Odyssey due to the Sienna having gotten previous horrid ratings coming into the mid 2000's due to its design and "cheap" product line. Now it seems Toyota has tried to aim for a loftier more luxurious goal with the Sienna and I believe that too will miss. That being said, they have fixed some of the issues with the design of the vehicle in the past decade.

Having said that, the Odyssey never had a fault from its inception, it was just great from start until now. Hard to beat that market on that one."

You got lit up because you lurked this thread waiting for any spot to jump in and offer that "professional" opinion, which was completely wrong by the way, and you followed it up with a tear-soaked "Wah! but what do I know...Wah!" and you needed a minivan post to do it. I could taste the tears in that post and can certainly taste them now.

Thanks for sharing all of your gay fantasies with everyone here on CP, but you might want to save that for those "other" forums you frequent.

You are also rightfully angry because I am the guy that you hate, the last two vehicles I have purchased I got thousands off the listed price because I played a bunch of you clowns off each other, walked off several times. Then when I had you at your absolute lowest price, I took out $10K (you finance, I don't need to) in cash and went in and set it on his desk (less $500) and looked at him like a prick and repeatedly said "do you want it or not". They always bend over and take it, because that's what your ilk always does when I walk in and they see they are over matched in every way. Oddly (not really) just like our interaction in this thread.

Cheers Bitch!

Guessing from the 14 bolt rear axle and Dana 44 front that someone had a mid ‘70’s Chevy ¾ ton 4X4 with a rusted away body and a minivan with a blown driveline. Put the two together and SHABAM!
There’s a guy running around C-Town with a Chevette body on an S-10 4X4 frame that is actually a capable little off roading rig.

Back in the '80's, there was a tire shop/off-road center in Salem that a 70's era Camaro on a 4x4 frame (Bronco maybe). It sat out front and was fixed up to advertize the shop. Have no idea if it ran, though.

What say you guys?
I have a 2011 Odyssey. The first year with the redesign. We love it. PM me if you have more specific questions

I love Jeeps. I have a 2007 Grand Cherokee that I haven't upgraded simply because I still love it. I might look at the 4 door Wrangler this summer, but the GCs are great.

Cons:

There is very little room in the backseat. Seriously, it's tight.

They are gas hogs. Even the 6 cyl.

Eh, I rarely have back seat passengers so that's not much of a concern. The gas mileage certainly is, but it's not like my Caravans have been gas misers as far as city driving goes.

I'm still working some, I just don't have a steady job at the moment, if that makes any sense. But yeah, I have cash, been saving since last summer. I've looked at a couple Grand Cherokees and driven one Durango so far, but I haven't been very excited to go out and do a whole lot of looking yet because the weather has been shit lately. Hopefully I can get out some this weekend.
