If you are buying from a dealer have it checked and inspected. If you are buying from a private seller ask to drive it and take it to Advanced Auto or another store and have the free computer check ran on it. If trouble codes pop up you may want to reconsider unless they are easy fix items. I myself had a 1996 Laredo and had minimal maitinence on it with 197k on the vehicle. Hope this helps. Stephen

If you are asking for an opinion about the GC, They aren't much different than any other vehicle. I say that because every vehicle has it's share of problems. GC's don't seem to have any more or less of them than those of any other manufacturer. The only thing from an engineering standpoint I do not like is the quadratrack 4wd system. It is too sensitive to slight tire size variations and engaging when it wants to instead of when you tell it to bothers me, especially in off road use. Being a larger vehicle, you cannot expect much economy and the actual cargo area isn't that much larger than a "normal" Cherokee ( of which I have several). If the one you intend to buy is in very good condition and has been well maintained, (and, you continue doing that), It's not a great vehicle but not a bad one either.
flushing a trans is not good because particals from the oil can clog valve body and ruin it--always just drop pan change filter and drain--that lite means theres a bad code-scan truc for free at a parts place and tell me wats happenin
You can take it to your Jeep dealer and have the service department try to flash the computer. This may fix it. If not you will need to purchase a shift control module. They are about $ 590.00. This is a very common problem on the Jeep Cherokees and Grand Cherokees. Hopefully you are under warranty still. If you ignore this problem this is what will eventually happen: You will be driving down the road and your vehicle will not want to go over 15 mph and it will shift erratically. Do not wait to correct this problem or you will regret it. Yes it is a very expensive part, but a computer in itself that the vehicle needs to function correctly.
