93 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
 
I was considering buying a 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo with an inline 6, its clean, 115,000 miles. The brakes are a little shaky but other than that it looks good, and I was just curios about any common problems that occur? Is there anything I should look at to see if its in good running condition? Does anyone have an opinion on what a good price would be? For those of you who own jeeps, is this a good year? I've wanted to own for a while and I need a good reliabe vehicle? :confused:

93 was the first year that the Grand Cherokees (ZJ) were made. So, as with any new product line, there is always problems. Check the basics and have the dealer change them before buying, such as the plugs,wires,engine mounts. Other common problems may include the differentials.. ZJ have a tendency to break a few bearings after a while, so with 115K on it.. check for a grinding noise coming either from the rear or back. check the tranny and make sure gear changes are smooth. the Transfer case might have problems too. If you're buying from a private or a non-jeep dealership, take it to a Jeep dealership and have them perform a safety inspection ($65.00). They will check all the main components and tell you if something is wrong. A good investment, i think. oh you might want to run a carfax report (www.carfax.com) on it too, just to be on the safe side. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I've had my 93 for a while now.. and it has had it share of problems, so i would defintely recommend a safety inspection. If you have the money though.. go for a 98. Beautiful machines. And if you can find one, get a 98 5.9... I just got mine and all i can say....well, im speechless. :D

allright, im done.. i promise.

I had a 93 Limited with a 4.0 and select trac. I had a lot of problems with it. The A/C is big dough if it goes and so is the fuel pump or water pump. As far as price, you could probably get a 93 fo between 4K-$6K.
You should go for at least a 96 or newer and try to find a 5.2 V8. I think that they more reliable, not to mention more powerfull.

Watch out for that fuel pump. Labor is expensive! They have to drop the gas tank to get to it. I had a '98 that I had to replace the fuel pump on and the track on my sunroof broke $$$$$$$$$. I also warped a lot of rotors which seems to be a common problem. The cat is probably due to go out soon if it has over 100k, but it is not an expensive fix, just don't let a jeep dealership do it!
