#11 of 34 How many miles can a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Handle
Dec 10, 2007 (9:45 pm)
I just purchased a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with 143,000 miles. This high milage worries me, especially in such a short time. I've had some maintence issues with the Jeep. I've had the roters turned, a heater core replaced, a vaccum leak fixed, oil leak fixed, radiator flushed for the second time and recharged, I don't beleive the macanic (sorry I can't spell) did it right the first time. My concern is the high milage I don't know if I did the right thing when I bought this Jeep or not. Fortunately all repair cost has been covered by the dealer I bought the vehicle from. Its very frustrating to deal with this, seems like my Jeep is in the shop more than its under my carport. My main question is can this Jeep handle these kind of miles, plus the ones I will be putting on it, from around 36,000 miles to present 143,000 are highway miles, not sure if that makes any difference or not. Or do I need to consider getting rid of it quick, like before the warrenty runs out. Can anyone give me some advice on this matter and quick. I don't have any service records on the vehicle, other than what is on the carfax report I had run for myself. I paid $7200.00 for the Jeep, that sounds like a good deal to me, what do you think?

Well, right now I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ with 130,000 miles on it. It doesn't worry me because we had a Jeep Cherokee that lasted to 300,000 miles. The engine was original, transmission. But most every thing else, we had replaced.

We have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 114K miles on it and runs beautiful! We're actually considering selling it since we just bought a minivan, but we hate parting with it. We know it will run forever......tows beautifully too. I would definately say that Jeep Grand Cherokee's are worth the price!

I just bought a 1993 Grand Cherokee Laredo about three months ago. Drove it for about a thousand miles and it went from a whirling noise to a loud cluncking and onto the side of the road.. Had it towed home and come to find that the Bearing around where the driveshaft goes into the differential (front) went kapute. Seal was bad and the bearing was ripped all apart. Seems the previous Owner didn't keep the differential full. Mine has about 139,000 miles on it.Only paid $1200 for it.
Have it up on floor jacks and have to separate the axles to get to the bearing from the inside.About $100 for parts and grease,oil,etc. but hrs of labor.

#20 of 34 1999 Grand Cherokee still going strong

I have a 99 Grand Cherokee with 150K on it that's still going strong with original everything. However, I recently ran over something and have to replace the fuel tank... which I'm not excited about. Other than that, it's doing great.
