2001 Grand Cherokee
I am from wisconsin and am looking for a used Jeep Grand Cherokee. There are a plethora of them here in southeastern wisconsin. But the problem is that the snow and salt takes there toll on them. I have looked at probably 50 of them. Heres the thing. I found one that a girl brought here a few weeks ago from Phoenix. (She just moved here) Its in my price range, has low miles (for a jeep of that age) and since its from Phoenix, the car looks great on the underside. There is only one problem our mechanic pointed out. The CV boot on this one is ripped. Inside, it looks clean, but that boot needs to be replaced. Also, the girl who owns it states that over 65 there is indication of a driver side wheel bearing issue. I asked a different mechanic what this would entail, and he says..>Sure replace the wheel bearing, and the CV boot, but when your doing that they also have to replace the Drive Shaft? Is that necessary to do that? Any opinions other than..."Dont buy a 2001 Grand Cherokee" would be appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
