2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4

I'm looking at a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 as a toad and just wondered if this model has had any problems that I should know about. Thanks for your help!

3 recalls. Jeep is the preferred vehicle for towing behind a MH for many owners because it requires no modifications to the vehicle proper and has no speed or distance limitations. We tow a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4. Ours does have a modification to the braking system, an M & G braking system powered by the MH air braking system. It is totally hidden under the hood, and only requires attaching (quick connects) an air line between MH and car to complete the braking system.

Thanks Ray! I'll check that out!

In 2011 the 4x4 Grand Cherokee could be purchased with three different transfer cases, the quadra-trac 1, the quadra-trac 2 and the quadra-drive 2. The quadra-trac 1 has no neutral position and thus cannot be towed 4 down. Chances are that the Laredo has the quadra-trac 1. The other two were most often found in the Limited and the Overland. Be sure to check the owners manual and have them demonstrate the ability to put the transfer case in neutral.

I've been looking at the reviews on the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and found a LOT of bad ones! I think I better stick with my Honda Accord for now!
