Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems
Temperature blend and recirculation doors commonly fail, which can cause the AC modes not to change or the temperature to be different on the left and right sides. If replacing blend air doors, a recirculation door, a door link, or a sub-assembly housing, new heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) sub-assemblies are available that improve reliability.
Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).
Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.
Electrical contacts in the tail lamp housing tend to break or melt, which can cause the brake lights to fail or work intermittently. Complete inspection of the tail light housing and bulbs is recommended before replacing any parts.

ok just started whed drive few miles will start jumpin jerkin let set few min. drives ok take front drive shaft out dont jump or jerk ???
I have been fortunate with my Jeep since I purchased it in June 2005 (New).Most issues have been minor and just involved replacing parts that reached the end of their life cycle. I have always stayed on top of maintenance,including oil changes every 3000 miles. The one issue that has cost me the most is the differential. I had all the gears replaced at a cost of $2000 and in less than a year I had to have it repaired again and this time found a better repair deal at $585. Still in both situations that low whining noise will not disappear. I have 171,300 miles on it and I plan to drive it for as many years as I can. The cost of a new one is in my opinion ridiculous. When the warranty is gone I suggest staying away from Jeep Dealerships and their repair facilities. Instead find a local repair facility that will not overcharge for repairs and if they do you right stick with them.
I just purchased my 2004 Grand Cherokee. It looked good and drove nicely. Thus far after driving it almost 1,000 miles, it has needed more repairs then the vehicle (Dakota P/U) I traded in the 8 years I owned it. It also only get 18 MPG, bad for a 4.0 6 cyl motor.
Chrysler not very friendly, broken frame on left side.
i just got mine, its the best truck in the world...BUY one u willl love it!!!!!!!!
