Refined, smooth, reliable Mercedes Diesel engine. Built in Austria for the European market.With quadra-drive 4x4 technology, the Grand Cherokee is a serious no none sense vehicle.
Do your homework, check out the specs and used car prices.

I was going to suggest a Mercedes-Benz G Wagon... until I saw the used prices.

I decided to keep the Monterey and spend some money on her.

I did some research on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and very nearly bought a 2.7 CRD earlier in the week.

Don't know what stopped me, but to be fair to the Monterey she's been really reliable and has never let me down. Seeing a few 2001-2005 Cherokee's in eBay for spares or repairs didn't help the search process.

Thanks for all your input guys.

Not a huge tow weight on them, but a good truck indeed. Manuals come in the much cheaper tax bracket.

arguably that's why we need 3.... At least two are working at any one time That said, it's all relative.... They are still more reliable than any if my Solihull vehicles ever were (that's not to say I don't still occasionally find myself looking at them for sale

I agree that it's sometimes 'better the devil you know' .... If the Monterey is behaving, why change
