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.
