#1536 of 2515 Need Info on 1995 Grand Cherokee
Nov 20, 2002 (1:35 pm)
My 18 yr. old son wants me to buy him a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. It is clean and my niece who owns it says she's never had any problems with it. It has 170,000 miles on it. Supposedly highway miles. She's asking $5,000 for it which is good from what I've seen, but I've heard from many guys where I work that I shouldn't buy it because of transmission problems,etc. Most say do not buy a Chrysler product, period. Many tell stories and name names of friends who've had repeated problems from these vehicles. Any input is appreciated. Son is driving me crazy. I don't want him stuck with a piece of junk.

What $5,000 SUV are you going to buy that might be better? Knowing it's had a trouble free past is a good thing. A $5,000 car would certainly be a better idea because you're going to get something with a fraction of the miles.
#1538 of 2515 Bulb Replacement - '99 JGC Ltd.
Nov 21, 2002 (6:47 am)
I have a '99 JGC Ltd.
My gear selector area - transmission shifters between the two front seats - no longer illuminates when I turn on the headlights. All of the other intereior lights work.
Can anyone provide directions on how to get to this bulb, or reference an Internet site where I may find the directions? I've already checked on a couple JGC enthusiasts sites, but have had no luck.
#1539 of 2515 twylie: About the Cayenne vs Jeep
Nov 21, 2002 (2:39 pm)
The Hummer H2 features angles of 41.7 degrees and the new Range Rover has a 35-degree approach, 30-degree departure. The Grand Cherokee provides an approach angle of 36.7 degrees and a departure angle of 28.6 degrees. The Cayenne is even better! Remember the Cayenne has fully controllable differential lock and up to 10.75 of ground clearance!
IS THAT ALL YOU HAVE!
#1540 of 2515 Now Here is the Cayenne Specs! Without Any Mods!
Nov 21, 2002 (6:38 pm)
The Cayenne is a capable off-roader with lockable differentials and a low-ratio gear set to add to its full-time four-wheel drive. It can ascend or descend hills as steep as 45 degrees, and lean more than 35 degrees without threatening to fall over. Yet it is also intended to feel sporty and Porsche-like on the road despite its high build, helped by height-adjustable pneumatic suspension.

Does anyone know if Jepp plans to continue the rebate/special financing after 12/4?
Has anyone bought a jeep through Carmax - can you give me some details about the experience, whether is was a good deal, etc.

"DO NOT PURCHASE THIS VEHICLE!..."
Really? I had a friend who owned a 1996 Ford Explorer and he had a ton of problems with it - does that mean no one else should buy a 1996 Explorer?

Just leased a 2003 JGC LAREDO with a sticker price of $29,795 for $349 sign and drive. 39 Mo with 12K. So it looks like you got a good deal.
#1545 of 2515 2001 JGC Front Brakes
Nov 29, 2002 (4:16 pm)
I'll be replacing the front disc pads in my 2001 JGC. Does anyone know what tool is needed to remove the caliper slide pins? I looked at them and they look like they're hex heads but I can't determine the size. Also, what is a good lubricant to use on the slide pins. All response appreciated. Thanks
