As of next week, I'll be driving a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 with the old and reliable 4.0L inline six-cylinder. More basic than my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 that has the old Chrysler 318 5.2L V8 in it, but better on gas and safer. Pics to come!

Actually the '04s have 2 airbags, my parents' '96 Grand Cherokee also had 2 airbags, so they had them since '96. My parents want me in something way newer than what I have now. Plus the 4.0 is more reliable and gets better MPG.
Additionally, since '02, the Grand Cherokee offered side airbags in the front and rear, but this particular Jeep doesn't have them.

So the 2004 Jeep didn't turn out to be a good deal, so I checked out a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4.0L I6, 4X4. Has 133,000 miles on it. My parents have agreed that I can buy this car, and it will become my daily driver! I'm supposed to get it this weekend, and pics will come! (:

Here's a picture of my new ride, an Onyx Green Pearl Coat 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4.0L I6, 4X4. Has 133k miles on it and runs like a dream. Previously well taken care of by its previous owner and will continue to be by me. This will be my daily driver.

Not that it's my car, but this weekend, my dad and I are on a road trip, and we currently have a 2014 Kia Sorento LX FWD I4 for a few days for our trip... we'll be driving 1,000 or more miles total in the Sorento, and let me tell you, so far, it's gotten excellent gas mileage, even for a larger, heavier SUV. We got the car from Avis/Budget Rent-a-Car and paid a good price for it... I'd have preferred a Ford Edge or Ford Explorer like we reserved, but the Sorento is okay for what it is, comfortable, and gets better gas mileage than my car (a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 with the I6 engine), which could've made the trip, but since I just bought it, I'll have to take it on shorter trips first before I can trust it fully.
I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler sport, 6-speed manual.
Since there seem to be a lot of people on here that have Cherokees, I do like those as well, however I have no need nor the finances to have two vehicles right now. Did they ever make any manual models?

They made manual Cherokees, but the Grand Cherokee was only made as a 5-speed manual from 1993-1995... I used to have a 1994 but it was a V8 and it was a 4-speed automatic... the manual was only made in limited numbers and only with the six-cylinder models. With the Cherokee, they made manuals from 1984-2001. My 2002 Grand Cherokee is a six-cylinder 4-speed automatic.
