#2325 of 2505 Growing concern for growing noise in rear of 1994 GCL
Feb 16, 2006 (10:41 am)
Being a new Jeep owner of a used Grand Cherokee Limited, I am a bit challenged in my ability to describe a recent problem. but here goes... My 4wd (quad-track) '94 has a clanking noise coming from the rear that sounds like when you drill into wood, and hit a nail. It's a metal hitting metal tapping noise that is much more noticable while decelerating than accelerating, and unfortunately, has grown louder over the last week! Is this related to wheel bearings, or the differential??? Any guidance would be much appreciated!

If you have had no luck in the junkyards you may not find an exact replacement, but Radioshack does carry a decent assortment of replacement knobs in various styles and sizes.

My Jeep is finally back home with me after almost a month at the dealer. Transmission is rebuilt and is running beautiful. Who knows if it is fixed for good. Chrylser doesnt want to talk to me and I am not in the position to spend thousands to fight them. I also have the fixed interest contract with the end balloon payment. What do you mean by turning the vehicle in and it costing $275? I am not confident driving this vehicle after all the problems and would like to get out of this contract, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure where your from or what your contract states, but mine has a section on the back titled "Return of Vehicle". It states:
"You may return Your Vehicle to us along with the title and any other required papers and pay us a disposition charge of $275 and any other charges for excess wear and tear and for excess mileage...You agree to give us 30 days written notice before the due date and to arrange a conveninet time and place for us or our agent to inspect the vehicle..."
I am still involved in the Lemon Law process, but I took this to mean that I can return the vehicle at any time with 30 days notice and a $275 fee.

I just left the dealership in Chicago and recieved a quote for 31,900 for the following:

What do you all think, a good deal? This does include a military rebate of $500. Car has 37 miles. Thanks.
#2331 of 2505 Aftermarket Rims
Feb 25, 2006 (9:44 pm)
I have a 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee and very interested in installing the new 4" Superlift Suspension Kit and was wondering what the best size rims and tires would be. I think that a 33x12.50 should fit, but I am lost in finding a aftermarket rim to fit i.e. the offset & backspacing of the rims and tires. If anyone could help Thank You.
#2332 of 2505 Invoice Dealer vs Edmunds Grand Cherokee Limited
Feb 28, 2006 (2:44 pm)
Invoice by Edmunds was $32,859. Dealer invoice was $33,234. Why the difference? Also, dealer wanted to charge for his advertising ($160) and for Customer One Owner Loyalty mailing ($25). This was in California.

Not sure. From the Help files:
"in some regions some manufacturers may make adjustments to their prices, for example by adding a required advertising fee, which can affect both the invoice price and the MSRP for the affected vehicles. Edmunds only publishes national prices and does not attempt to track these regional variations."
It's pretty funny that Jeeps wants to bill you for sending you mail. The ad fees, even if legit, are just sad.
As always, focus on the out the door price and you won't have to waste time negotiating the line items like these.

I have been posting the "problems and solutions" forum and happened to see your post. Goodluck with the process!!! I too have had transmission problems with my 2005 GC. It didn't stall like yours, but it was a hard shift into 3rd gear (banging into gear, definitely did not feel right). First dealer I took it to said it was normal! Second dealer recognized it and at 5,300 miles the tranny was rebuilt. Still had the same problem so now the pistons and retainers are being changed. This is the 3rd time they've had the car (not counting the first dealer I brought it to). I am hoping this fixes the problem as I do plan to keep the WK for a while... Keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have MA Lemon Law it... In fact, just bought new wheels/tires for it!
