Buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hello, I'm looking to purchase a Jeep Grand Cherokee after my 2002 BMW 3 series grew to expensive for me to keep owning. I'm 19 years old and in college. What is some general advice to know when looking for a Jeep, and what models and how many miles would be good for someone not looking to spend more then $4,500? Also, are jeeps reliable vehicles. I'm new to jeeps but many of my friends own them and never complain, yet I see online that they have a bad reputation for being cheaply made and fall apart. Thank you for your responses.

Best advice I can give is, Don't buy after market components, they will drive you crazy.

i have owned 3 of them, a 93 GC V8 a brand new 88 6cyl a 97 GC V8 and know of family memebers that have had them too! first of all watch out for the alarms,ac,transfer case,cooling system! you know i really like the 97 though its not bad overall but boy it can piss me off with the alarm and ac crap! just make sure you have someone who knows what their doing check it out really good or you might have a head ache.... for me i think i'm done with these cars time for something else with less stress if thats possible....
