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 love car shopping when it's something newer. Car shopping in the lower end, though, totally sucks imo.

Other than that, we've had no problems and have owned this one for 5 years. Only has about 100k on it now because my wife is the principal driver and she only has like a 5 mile commute.

Bug, I'd avoid the Durango like the plague if I were you. If you're looking at the same vintage/price range as the others the Durangos in that range are going to be real risky. If it's near or over 100K, you'll basically be flipping the coin on a daily basis to see whether your transmission will make it through the day.

Also, no better weather to test drive 4x4s than the crappy stuff.

What package, couldn't see a badge on the side where they usually are.

edit: just realized I'm asking a dude on the internet about his "package".

Don't forget the part about it not being a Honda!

Yes, it does. I always start off excited, but that excitement quickly turns into frustration with the idiot private sellers and sketchy car dealers. Then it turns into outright fear when you start researching things and hearing the horror stories people have had with what you're considering buying. It gets to a point where you just want to buy something and get it over with.

Appreciate that but I can't do a car. It's either gotta be another minivan or SUV.

Yeah, I'm real apprehensive about the Durango as far as reliability, but I'm extremely comfortable in them and I love the styling. I'd have to have $2,000 set aside for when (not if) the transmission goes.

Unfortunately the crap we have now is just windy and cold, no snow.

Bug, did this guy drop his price?

Even though it's a small dealer, he has glowing reviews and quite a few on cars.com.

This looks like a good ride, you're getting a big discount due to the stick. Looks like he tagged something with the front bumper, but that piece that is missing is about as strong as saran wrap so I wouldn't worry too much.

Also, if this is still available, I would be tempted to drive to Omaha, kick you in the nuts and steal your money and leave it in the driveway for you.

I get the appeal of the Durango and like them too, but listen to Nancy "just say no".

I think that's still the same price on the Xterra, I suppose I should head back down there and take a closer look at it. He did brag about his internet reviews when I was down there last week but something about him just rubbed me the wrong way.

I have not seen that 4runner, did a search for them a while back and they were all waaay out of my price range. That looks like a damn good deal, almost too good. I wouldn't be able to get to Lincoln until tomorrow though, I bet it doesn't last too long.
