2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Redesigned for the 1999 model year, Jeep’s flagship model only receives minor changes this year. The 1999 Grand Cherokee received several awards, including North American Truck of the Year, an annual award from a panel of more than 45 automotive journalists.

As one would guess from its moniker, the Grand Cherokee is larger, more luxurious and more expensive than the Jeep Cherokee. Though both are considered compact sport utility vehicles, Grand Cherokee is positioned at the higher end of the market and comes close to a mid-size SUV.

Interior
Front seat-belt pretensioners, which cinch the belts in a collision, are a new standard feature. Both the Laredo and Limited models seat five, but the ritzier Limited comes with standard leather upholstery (optional on the Laredo). Unlike the Cherokee, with its spare tire in the cargo bay, the Grand Cherokee’s spare is under the cargo floor, increasing cargo area.

Exterior
You know it’s a Jeep by the bold, upright grille, a trademark of the brand. Grand Cherokee comes in four-door styling and is 14 inches longer than the Cherokee. Unlike many of its competitors, which have gravitated toward a more rounded, sometimes bulbous look, the Grand Cherokee has for the most part retained the harder-edged look that makes it instantly recognizable.

Under the Hood
A 195-horsepower, 4.0-liter, inline six-cylinder is the base engine, and a 230-horsepower, 4.7-liter V-8 is optional. This year, the V-8 is available with 2W. Show full review

It’s a gas guzzler. One thing I’d like to see it have is some more seating. Other than those things, it’s Fantastic! I love it. Very comfortable ride, and I love sitting up high enough to see all around me. It has very good «get up and go» and it’s been very reliable for me. I’ve got 118,000 miles on it at this point, and it’s performing great.

On of the best SUV’s I’ve owned. This is my #2 GC in my ownership experience. I have the Selec-Trac 4×4 V8 which I get 22-24mpg hwy and sometimes the rare 26mpg hwy. My old ’94 Limited never got stuck, and just as well, neither has my 2000! 127 carried over parts and my 2000 looks as good as she can get. I get asked all the time if she’s a 2004 because my headlights aren’t sanded like the rest of them.

I love my Jeep. If you live where the snow can pile up, nothing goes through it like a Jeep. On several occasions I’ve put snow over the hood of my jeep going through snow drifts 4 feet deep and she keeps on going (as long as you have good tires). The only annoying mechanical issue is that Brake Rotors warp easily on this vehicle if the wheel lug nuts are not tightened properly. 4×4 Jeeps require a lot of maintenance, more than most people are willing to do and that’s why I suspect so many other reviewers had problems with their jeep. For the home mechanic the Jeep (I-6 especially) is easy to work on from a maintenance standpoint. I love my Jeep and with 110,000 miles on it I feel like I have a lot of life yet and even when I do upgrade to a new car I’m keeping my Jeep just in case the weather gets bad.

My jeep currently has 236k miles on in at still runs like a beast. Smooth shifting, cranks up easy and hauls without complaint. Interior is coming apart a bit but what can you expect out of a 19 year old car? Very small paint fades on the hood; pin head size. Stereo keeps up with a 10″ sub-woofer addition that I made. Had to replace the suspension around 200k, window motors same time, and a crack in the brake booster valve but other than that I still love this thing. Best part is, got it for 1000$. What a steal!!

Purchased new Grand Jeep Cherokee Laredo in 2000. Had a few problems with brakes which was common with this year Jeep and lots of problems with actuators on doors and too expensive to fix so had to lock and unlock manually. Otherwise just normal wear and tear replacements until engine died at 166,000 which I heard is very unusual for a V6 4 cylinder engine. Was very dissappointed since I LOVED my Jeep and to replace engine will be over $3500 🙁 Jeep was wonderful in the snow and drove very nice. We originally choose a Jeep because it seemed very heavy duty and well built compared to other SUVS in 2000. Really would have liked to purchase another Jeep but was concerned about engine dying so soon so we purchased a new Toyota RAV4, so will see how this compares. So far drives nice and better gas milleage although smaller.

This is a great suv for the family. the price was 35k but after all it was worth for what it can do in extreme conditions. Excellent off-road and astonishing in the snow. We owned it for 11 years and its still like new. Never had any problems with it and has over 100k miles on it. we had so much fun at Camp Jeep and we miss and and so does our jeep. The title explains everything i just said. Greatest american car ever.

I have the 4.0L Laredo version and I love it. The look of it just says «I want to go off-road» and knowing that it can go there is a great feeling. Minor repairs and touch-ups I’v noticed over these Jeeps include headlight lenses, paint on gas tank tends to fade, vehicle decals fade and grille tends to «bubble» and chip. The one major repair on it over it’s 150,000 miles is a small generator which powers the cooling fan. These Jeeps are made with a small electric motor generator for the fan, instead of the typical fan belt-powered. They tend to break and need replaced every 2 years or so. The engine tends to overheat if they are not replaced. Roomy interior with a agrea ride in the suspension. THESE ARE GREAT IN THE SNOW. A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE IN THE NORTHEAST!

This vehicle is the best vehicle I’ve ever driven in my life. It’s been the most reliable vehicle to me and other i know who own it. I got it as my first car and I’m still driving it 3 years later. Mine is currently 18 years old with 256,000 miles on the 4.0 I6 and i recently drove it to colorado from wisconsin and back without any trouble. The car never uses any oil or any other fluid at that. Only downside is the gas mileage isn’t the best. This car can virtually go through anything, I’ve taken it to truck jams where lifter trucks have gotten stuck in the mud when my jeep made it through no problem. The one time i slid into a ditch was when I hit black ice, the jeep had snow up to the doors so i couldn’t get my driver door open. I threw her in 4wd and reversed right out no problem. There is no stopping this vehicle. If you’re a parent wondering what vehicle to get you teen driver, i’d get the 99-04 grand cherokee because of it’s reliability, toughness, and power to do anything you tell it to.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ [awarie i problemy]

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ

Z terenówkami jest trochę tak jak z motocyklami, klienci którzy cenią sobie niezawodność wybierają jedną z japońskich konstrukcji, a Ci, którzy szukają rasowej maszyny z duszą, a nie zniechęca ich perspektywa pojawienia drobnych awarii z pewnością zdecydują się na coś z USA. Przykład? Harley-Davidson albo Jeepa Grand Cherokee.

Historia modelu

II generacja Jeepa Grand Cherokee oznaczona fabrycznym symbolem WJ zadebiutowała w 1998 roku, swoją stylizacją nowy wówczas model bardzo wyraźnie nawiązywał do swojego przednika ZJ, z tą jednak różnicą, że WJ zyskał liczne krągłości poprawiające jego zewnętrzną aparycję. Trzy lata później pod jego maską pojawiły się nowe jednostki benzynowe w tym 4,7-litrowe V8 High Output i 4-litrowe R6, a także 140-konny 3,2-litrowy diesel. W 2000 roku w ofercie znalazła się nowa 5-stopniowa skrzynia automatyczna. Cztery lata później produkcję II generacji Jeepa Grand Cherokee zakończono, a jego miejsce zajęła jego kolejna odmiana WK.

Zobacz również: Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 5.7 — wydech

R6 4,0 (195 KM)
V8 4,7 PowerTech (223 KM)
V8 4,7 High Output (258 KM)

R5 2,7 CRDi (163 KM)
R5 3,1 TD (140 KM)

Który z wyżej wymienionych silników jest wart uwagi? Jeżeli chodzi o jednostkę benzynową to właściwie każdy z wyjątkiem 4-litrowej rzędowej szóstki, która lubią czasem się przegrzewać. Konstrukcja ta miewa również problemy z domykaniem się zaworów wylotowych co skutkuje osadzaniem się nagaru w cylindrach. W przypadku motorów V8 poziom bezawaryjności jest znacznie wyższy, ale trzeba się jednak liczyć z ogromnym spalaniem (ponad 25 l benzyny na 100 km w mieście i 16 l paliwa na 100 km w trasie przy dynamicznej jeździe). Uwaga! Przed zakupem jednostki benzynowej koniecznie sprawdźmy czy w okolicach wału korbowego nie ma jakichś wycieków.

Amatorzy diesli powinni wybrać nowocześniejszy wariant CRDi, który co prawda ma swoje bolączki (awarie układu wtryskowego, problemy z zatykającą się odmą), ale charakteryzuje się znacznie lepszą kulturą pracy, żwawszą dynamiką i wyższą trwałością od TD. Z kolei w silnikach 3,1 litra zdarzają się przypadki pękania uszczelek pod głowicą, a także poważnych uszkodzeń samej głowicy, zatarcia turbosprężarki oraz pojawiania się problemów z laskami hydraulicznych popychaczy zaworów.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ 2.7 CRDi

Dane techniczne

Jeep Grand Cherokee może być uzbrojony w trzy rodzaje napędu. Pierwszym z nich jest elektronicznie dołączany napęd 4×4 Quadra-Trac II generacji z 3 ustawieniami: 4WD High, Neutral i 4WD Low. W normalnych warunkach napęd przekazywany jest na oś tylną, a przednia dołączana jest w razie poślizgu. Jeżeli zmienimy ustawienie skrzyni rozdzielczej na 4WD Low wówczas będziemy mogli jechać z zapiętym reduktorem, niestety to ustawienie dopuszczalne jest tylko i wyłącznie w trudnych warunkach i przy niskich prędkościach.

Drugi typ napędu to Selec-track z możliwością dokonywania następujących ustawień: 2WD, 4 part time, 4 full time, Neutral oraz 4WD Low. W tym przypadku istnieje możliwość: włączenia blokady dyferencjału, zapięcia reduktora, jazdy z włączonym międzyosiowym mechanizmem różnicowym lub przemieszczania się tylko z napędem na oś tylną. Co ciekawe na rynku znajdziemy też auta ze zwykłym napędem na tył.

Trzecim z nich jest Quadra-drive, gdzie mamy do czynienia z taką samą skrzynią rozdzielczą jak w napędzie Quadra-trac II. Jednak Quadra-drive został dodatkowo wzbogacony o mechanizm różnicowy o progresywnej charakterystyce Vari-Lok pomagający efektywniej przekazywać moment obrotowy na wszystkie koła.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ Wnętrze

W zawieszeniu Jeepa Grand Cherokee WJ znajdziemy mosty napędowe z wahaczami wzdłużnymi pchanymi z przodu oraz wleczonymi z tyłu. Do tego sprężyny śrubowe z amortyzatorami teleskopowymi zamontowanymi oddzielnie, stabilizatorami poprzecznymi i drążkiem reakcyjnym Panharda. Do wyboru mamy dwie automatyczne skrzynie biegów 4- lub 5-stopniową, trzeba jednak wziąć pod uwagę fakt, że do danego silnika może być przypisana tylko jedna konkretna przekładnia. Osoby liczące na wysoki poziom bezpieczeństwa mogą czuć się zawiedzione, bo samochód nie brał udziału w testach zderzeniowych Euro NCAP.

Awaryjność

Auta z początku produkcji cierpią na problemy z przegrzewającymi się i nierówno pracującymi hamulcami, gdzie z powodu zastosowania przez producenta wadliwych zacisków dochodzi do wichrowania się tarcz hamulcowych i deformacji klocków. Aby pozbyć się tego problemu raz na zawsze trzeba wymienić seryjne zaciski na inne, które muszą być odpowiednio dopasowane. Przy przebiegach rzędu 150 000 km lub większych często dochodzi do wyeksploatowania łożysk tylnego mostu, co objawia się charakterystycznym huczeniem w czasie jazdy.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ

Kupując Jeepa Grand Cherokee trzeba pamiętać o konieczności wymiany oleju w mostach, zanim zlecimy mechanikowi dokonanie takiej czynności musimy upewnić się jaki olej zaleca producent. Zastosowanie niewłaściwego oleju skutkuje niedomaganiami zespołu napędowego (piski, zgrzyty, problemy z załączeniem stałego napędu 4×4), które mogą skończyć się poważną awarią. W skrzyniach biegów zdarzają się przypadki uszkodzenia drogiego konwertera. Użytkownicy Grand Cherokee skarżą się na niską trwałość elementów metalowo-gumowych zawieszenia. Przed zakupem powinniśmy zwrócić szczególną uwagę na stan amortyzatorów, które przeciekają i luzy na krzyżakach.

Elektronika Jeepa Grand Cherokee WJ również miewa swoje humory. Najczęściej spotkaną awarią jest problem z climatronicem, a dokładniej z silniczkiem odpowiedzialnym za otwieranie i zamykanie klap mieszalnika powietrza. Jeżeli dmuchawa mimo zmiany przez nas temperatury przyciskami na konsoli centralnej dmucha tylko zimnym lub ciepłym powietrzem to znak, że mamy do czynienia właśnie z opisanym przez nas problemem. Użytkownicy II generacji Jeepa Grand Cherokee narzekają też na notoryczne uszkodzenia maty grzewczej foteli i zacinające się elektrycznie uchylane szyby.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ

Naszym zdaniem

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ z pewnością nie przypadnie do gustu każdemu entuzjaście aut terenowych i SUV-ów, to auto dość specyficzne wymagające opieki dobrego mechanika znającego się na rzeczy i zdrowego podejścia cierpliwego właściciela wybaczającego wszelkie niedoskonałości tej amerykańskiej konstrukcji. Eksploatacja tego modelu z pewnością nie będzie tania zwłaszcza jeśli zdecydujemy się na wybór silnika benzynowego, ale za to Grand Cherokee może pochwalić się przyzwoitymi jak na SUV-a własnościami terenowymi (pod warunkiem, że wybierzemy wersję z napędem 4×4). Ceny używanych egzemplarzy wahają się od 19 000 do 43 000 zł.
