    2006 jeep GC 3.7 v6 fluids

    Is Grand Cherokee just as reliable as Cherokee

    does the GC use the same poopy neutral safety switch (NSS) as the cherokee? hit it w/ degreaser, remove/clean/replace, or carry around a loooong screwdriver and jump the starter... 2wd jeep? solid front axle and no 4x4? great...
