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?

Well that is a given, they have only been importing cars to the U.S. for about 40 years you old fart.

The first one I saw was chain driven over on Guam in 1969, but they wouldn't let them import those.

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.
I know I've been pushing the Nissans, but you can safely go back to 95-96 on a clean 4runner that is well maintained and sub 150K miles with virtually no problems.

Damn, I just noticed that ad for the 4runner is dated Feb 1. No way it hasn't sold yet. Phone goes straight to voicemail, I bet the douche just didn't bother pulling his ad down. That shit pisses me off.

Yeah, that's that why I said "if". You never know, leave a vmail.

Also Xterra guy has this, might want to visit him again.

Might want to call this guy for details, couldn't find any specifics on his shit site.

You can put a tow package on a Jeep if that's what you like. and the seats do fold down. I can understand though that might still not meet your needs.

I have to say though, now that I'm a Jeep owner, I don't think I will ever own anything else. Just too much fun driving one.

I'm actually surprised at some of the stuff he's finding. Like I said though, I kind of gave up on the 4runners early on. I can't believe I missed that silver one when I was down there. It was ****ing cold that day though and I didn't spend a whole lot of time down there.

Ha, it really is that I have spent a ton of time researching this exact vehicle range and feel a little less dorky if I can actually help someone out. Take this as you will, but when any of my friends decide to go with something new, I get the "begin the hunt" email.

Bug, when searching CL for 4runners, you have to search 4runner and 4 runner as people list them both ways and due to CLs garbage search you'll miss some.

I'm trying to talk her into a Highlander, Pathfinder, or something similar.

What say you guys?
The Sienna comes in AWD. And according to Edmunds, "When it comes to family haulers, nothing beats a minivan. And when it comes to minivans, it's tough to beat the 2013 Toyota Sienna"

And New cars.com says..."The Toyota Sienna has less seating than the Honda Odyssey, making the Honda Odyssey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Toyota Sienna as you will in the Honda Odyssey." But the Odyssey does NOT come in AWD!

The Highlander is a great value. NOT overly rugged though.

The CL search does suck but it doesn't help when these idiot sellers that I alluded to earlier don't know how to properly advertise their vehicles. I get annoyed when I have to call or email them for basic shit like engine type or mileage. CL really should have a tutorial for these morons, but they probably wouldn't use it anyway.

True, but the kicker is some of those idiots are 60 year old men that have been wiping their car down with a diaper every week. I called on a MR-2 out of the newspaper a few years back when online ads had already taken over. The guy was a moron, but damn that thing was mint, drove it for a summer and re-sold to the first guy that looked for a $2k profit.

The guy you want to find probably buys a new car every 15 years and has no idea what he is doing, can suck on the surface, but a call sometimes can find you a gem.
