27 mpg @ 168000 miles

Vehicle: 1990 Jeep Cherokee 4dr SUV 4WD

This is actually a 1987 AMC Jeep, but review selections don't go back that far. I have been looking at SUV reviews for my daughter and was shocked at the low milage ratings. I have always gotten between 23-26 MPG/HWY on this manual transmission 4 liter Cherokee. The past 6 months it has been 27 mpg, perhaps due to new oversize 235-75-R15 tires, even with 168000 miles on the engine. I remember when we ordered it new, the salesman seemed surprised at the non-standard rear end, with a comment of "Well, you should get good milage." Perhaps that is the cause of a sluggishness I noted from the beginning, like riding a bike uphill in hi-gear.




Will keep it forever

This was my mothers before I got my hands on it and when I did it got beat on like there was no tomorrow. The thing is a daily driver with its True Mileage Unknown, I estimate around 300,000 on the motor.(rebuilt trans, new rear, u joints, steering box, are a few things changed but none of them went i just want to keep it around forever)I've taken it all over from 4x4ing to beating hondas around town and racing on the highway. I even towed my friends 79' Bronco out of a mud pit with it. The 4 low rocks. Its just a great truck, that simple. Btw Just watch the trasfer case clearance when goin hard core off road with a stock one, it kinda sticks out.
