I just purchased a new 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo with the NAV and X package.
I'm not so impressed of the 3.6L Engine power.
The worst , I couldn't get it into my Garage because of the silly Antenna that 10 inches higher than the top roof , i can't believe how they could still used this kind of Antennas on a 2011 vehicle while my Accord coupe 2009 has the Sharkskin one that 2 inches high.
Moreover , when discussing with the Salesman there he did not explain the 2 versions of the 4x4 that Grand Cherokee is equipped with , Trac-1 and Trac-2
So after I came home I found out that my Jeep can only run on all time4x4 ( Trac-1 ) and there is NO selection : 4 Low or 4 High, as you all know that when 4x4 traction is needed ( in the real world not in the Fiction movies ) the 4 Low traction is the one that can get you out of problems.

Now I understand why Japanese and European and even Chinese carmakers are leading the market and cause the deficit of our industry.

I regret i bought it , I’ll be looking to return it or to trade it for another 4x4 , even if it’ll be a huge financial loss.

That is really unfortunate. But, with all due respect couldn't some of your issues have been prevented with some additional research or attention to detail?

That's what I was thinking! It's not Jeeps fault you built your garage to fit a Honda. This just proves that people are buying them cause they are "the in thing" right now. Anybody who truly needed one would at least find out what 4wd system it had before it left the lot!
