Looking to buy..
Hi all,

Been around car/suv forums for some time now. I'm looking into purchasing a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 116k miles. I wanted to hear from the experts if there's anything I should look out for. Carfax checks out only a one owner no accidents. This would be my first Jeep and I'm curious about the reliability after 100k miles.

Also what kind of mpg is everyone seeing with the 3.7?

my opinion but , You can expect prety much the same milage as the 4.7 and 5.7 and then possibly wishing you had one of them . But if you really don't care about the "get up and go" I think the 3.7 is a solid engine even at 116k mi . I would hope the price reflects that it is a higher milage v6 though .
Good luck

I believe it is, but maybe i'll leave it you guys to tell me as I've never owned or shopped for a Jeep. Its an 08, 116k miles, two tone leather, sunroof, boston acoustics sound. They're asking $11.5k. NADA places that with the features at $14.9k

Get it inspected by a trusted mechanic. If it checks out that's a killer deal. I would suggest getting a v8 also but if you're happy with the v6 then there you go.
