We have two 1995 Grand Cherokee Limiteds. My wife's was purchased used January, 2000 with 82,000 miles on it. It now has 246,000 and has required almost no repairs short of a starter, water pump, and radiator (mainly due to a collision with a Honda Accord - the Jeep won!) I took the $ from Allstate and repaired it myself and it looks great. It is due for new tires and our favorite garage says it does need some steering parts. So we are taking it to them in two weeks for upper and lower ball joints plus a few other small parts. Then it will be good for a least two more years and hopefully many times that. The four wheel drive still works great and that is why we purchased the GCLtd #2 the next January.
Number two Jeep Grand Cherokee had 94,000 miles when I bought it and it now has 294,000. I just put on new tires and it also just had some new fuel injection sensor parts: crankshaft speed sensor, throttle position sensor, air idle control, plus a complete tuneup.
Both Jeeps run a great as the day we purchased them. When we have to, we will only buy another Grand Cherokee (or two maybe). They are great for Michigan driving and we take them about 150 miles further north to our second home, which is 500 feet in from the county dirt road in the Pere Marquette state forest.
As a final note, I change the oil and do most work on them myself. I have used Valvoline MaxLife oil in both Jeeps for the past four years at least. As mentioned earlier, we hope to be driving these same Grand Cherokees for many more years.

I was wondering about how much should I pay (cash) for a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with 59,026 miles? 93,187 miles? 99,948 mile? and 90,110 miles?

Pricing depends a bit on options, color, condition and your zip code, and whether you are buying from a dealer or private party. Try the Appraisal tool here.
How you pay for it probably won't make any difference on the price, but that could depend on the seller a bit.

i have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee, that has 230,000 miles, original tranny, engine, and transfer case. just the usual maintinance. But over all, it has been very reliable, it has the 4.0 litre. As for the newer Jeeps, with the 3.7 litre V6, those are not as reliable as the time tested straight six

We have two 95 Grand Cherokee Ltd. Both have the 5.2 liter V8 - the best engine ever. I have one parked at our 2nd house in N MI waiting for me to take the heads off and rework them, due to my ignoring the sound of a bad water pump. It has 317,000 miles with nothing done to the engine other than starter, alternator. At about 295,000 it needed a new cam shaft pickup in the distributor, plus the auto shutdown relay, and the sensors on the multi-port fuel injection. But it has had the tranny and quadra trac transfer case rebuilt and needs that again.
I am driving the other one daily still, and we bought it 11 years ago. It has 299,400 or so miles and has needed very little work. A transmission oil leak about 90,000. I have replaced the starter twice, the alternator once, the water pump once, and also replaced the sensors on the multi-port fuel injection. Plus the normal tuneups on both of course.
All in all we have been very happy with both Jeeps and are anxious to buy another someday soon.

#28 of 33 How many miles can a Jeep Grand Cherokee handle?
Apr 22, 2012 (6:28 pm)
I have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter, that has over 384,000 miles, original tranny, engine, and transfer case. Not much other replaced parts - just the usual maintinance. It has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. Bought it when it had only 67,000 miles on it. I don't change the oil very regularly - sometimes waiting till I can't see it on the dip stick. Go figure.
