 I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee limited. i have had the vehicle since it had 29,000 miles and it now has approx. 81,000. i have replaced three of the five locking mechanisms on the vehicle and now have two more that need replacing. this is not acceptable. the door locks allow for me to open the corresponding door or rear hatch sometimes but most of the time do not allow me to open the door or rear tailgate at all. when the rear tailgate lock is allowing for me to open the rear tailgate it will not lock at all. my vehicle has sat in my driveway every night without anyway for me to lock it. when it is stuck in the locked position it will not open because there is no way for me to manually open the rear tailgate. when the driver side lock went out it locked me out of the vehicle because there is some type of electrical drain on the vehicle as well, the key less entry fob could obviously not unlock the other doors. this is just one of the frustrating issues that i have had with the locking mechanisms on my vehicle. i was told by the dealership that it would cost approx. $250 per door in locking mechanisms alone to get replaced this time! i am pissed off and at a loss. i have replaced these locks before and it should never be an issue for me the entire life that i own this vehicle, especially not this many times. i may have the previously repaired items for review. please help me find some type of solution to this problem since i am out of money and out of patience. thank you. *tr

 1999 jeep grand cherokee loredo exhibits the following problems: 1) lurch when shifting from park to reverse along with a noticeable 'thump' noise 2) humming noise at highway speed (65-75 mph) that graduated into a sudden 'pop' noise. this issue caused a loud grinding noise which i am now trying to deal with. dealership informed me that this was a common problem in 1999 and 2000 model year for rear differential due to diffential supplier to chrysler overtorqueing differential components. 3) driver's side door lock failure*ak
 The vehicle experienced multiple problems. the horn failed. the interior lights failed. the door locks were inoperative. the abs light and the brake light came on and remained on. the vehicle overheated when at idle for more than a few minutes. this problem has been addressed more than three times with no resolution. the brakes vibrated and this has been a problem since the first year of purchase. the consumer has requested jeep to buy back the vehicle. mr scc *nlm

 When adding windshield washer fluid, the hood came back down and hit me on the head. very dangerous safety situation. according to the dealer the hood struts need to be replaced. *nm
 The wind gust from an oncoming semi caused the hood on my 99 jeep grand cherokee to pop open. the secondary latch held thankfully
 Vehicle's hood came crashing down suddenly and without any warning on my head while i was trying to check the engine oil level. dealer's representative rather non-chalant about it. could cause serious injuries as hood is heavy and bulky. i rarely check the oil level. dealer's service people have lifted the hood a lot more than i have had during servicing. is a definite safety hazard. told to use broom handle to prop hood up like the service techs do at the dealership. there should be a fix and recall of defective parts, especially when dealer service personnel are using broom sticks to prop the hood up to prevent the sudden dropping of the hood.*ak
 One of the two rear liftgate pistons which are designed to hold up the weight of the liftgate snapped violently when opening the hatch. this piston shot up and wedged inside the crease bewteen the liftgate and body of the vehicle. because it became wedged in this crease, thankfully the liftgate did not fall hard therefore did not injure anyone. the car body is dented from the impact. the part replacement cost approximately $70. jeep would not pay for the replacement part even though they admitted it was not something that should fail. pistons holding up the vehicle hood also are faulty, as are the pistons that hold up the pop-up window glass. none of these pistons can reliabilbly hold the weight of the items they were designed for.*ak
