Are 2000s model Jeeps reliable (2004 Grand Cherokee Laredo)?

I'm looking at cars to buy on Craig's List, I want an SUV but have heard that Jeeps have a bad reputation for transmission or other issues. Most of my previous cars have been Japanese, so I don't know about this one.

Looking at an '04 Grand Cherokee Laredo with 220,000 miles, described as:

"It has 6 cylinder legendary engine
that is indestructible and good transmission."

For $2700. The ad says single owner. Should I consider this if they have maintenance records to show?
Update: I just need a good reliable daily "city driver" (southern California) with some cargo capacity.
