1991 Jeep Cherokee SUV Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

This is the first car that i've owned, and I think that it was the best decision I could have taken. Although I wasn't very pleased with the exterior, but I fell in love with the reliability this car has to offer. The only thing i have done to this car is the essentials(oil, brake, and tire changes.) It runs great on freeways at 70 and above.


Favorite Features

runs great at 70mph and above. very good engine(270,000) and it is still runs like a champ.


Suggested Improvements

mileage per gallon. I live in the dessert and it sometimes heats up, but it has never left me on the road.

Review

I bought my 1991 jeep from a gal who used to drive it everyday. When she sold it to me it had a miss in the engine after looking it over I suddenly realized that the only thing that was wrong was the rotor tips were rusted. This vehicle has been extremely dependable and 275,000 miles on it. I also had a jeep liberty I bought in 2004 new and had more trouble with that suv than you could shake a stick at. I eventually sold it back to the dealer . It just goes to show ya that it's hard to beat the older jeeps and they were made back in the days when quality really meant something and customers were important to a business.


Favorite Features

I like the interior . And the dependability of the engine.


Suggested Improvements

I don't see how you can improve on the best unless you can come up with a better cup holder .

Review

Bought my Cherokee back in October 1991 and 17 years later I still enjoy driving it. Took my honeymoon in it to Colorado, I brought my 3 kids home in it from the hospital and countless fishing trips were taken in it. Three years ago, I gave her a fresh coat of paint. My wife can't understand why I continue to keep driving it, but she isn't a Jeep owner. Low maintenance, drives like a tank in the snow and runs smooth. Today, I still see early 90s Cherokees on the road and they are either great looking or beaten up.


Favorite Features

Jeep got it right with the straight 6 and it's a shame, because the newer Cherokees are inferior to it. Reliable and runs great. Very easy to work on. After 17 years, I had to replace the 4X4 axle joints. Everything else was basic maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

Stiff ride, not great fuel economy for a V-6, seats are uncomfortable when driving long distances, gauges are hard to see at night (poor lighting)

Review

I bought my Cherokee as an "emergency purchase" when my Camry decided it was done with me, and I absolutely love it! Had to replace the brakes about 2 months after purchase and fix an oil leak about 7 months after that, but overall I really do enjoy this car. Has most of the features of a modern car (ie: power everything and good a/c. Mine came with CD player, keyless entry, and an alarm as well) and the durability that Jeeps are known for.


Favorite Features

Simplicity. Take it around town blasting your fav song or go camping Rubicon style, it handles well either way.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy. Stronger brakes.

Review

Love the body style -- '91, fun to drive on or off road. The 4.0L is quite peppy, no problem towing even on steep grades. The heater will bake bread, even with the windows down. The air conditioner works well too. All in all ... I'll buy another!


Favorite Features

It's a Cherokee ... what else needs to be said.


Suggested Improvements

Use a better windshield sealant, Mine leaks when it rains. The clearcoat chips off too much, needs better paint.

Review

I've owned this car for 11 years. The only significant repair was a radiator at 115,000 miles ($800). This has been an excellent vehicle from a reliability standpoint. With the 6 cylinder engine, power is adequate. My only issue is that it rides like an SUV (bouncy ride), but rides great on the freeway. There is exceptional interior space for passengers and cargo, especially considering its short wheel base (which makes it easy to park). It also has a strong a/c. From speaking with other owners (1991 model year), the '91 is either very reliable or constantly in need of repairs. The bad ones are mostly off the road by now. Most 1991's still on the road are likely good cars.


Favorite Features

Very reliable; runs and runs without having to make repairs. However I always do the 30,000 maintenance and change oil every 3-5,000 miles. Great interior room, comfortable for rear seat passengers, who can put their feet under front seats, adding several inches of leg room. Comfortable front seats.


Suggested Improvements

The SUV suspension gives it a bouncy ride in the city, especially going into driveways or over speed bumps. Fuel economy is so-so, about 18-20 mpg overall (22 mpg highway). This is not a luxury or high performance vehicle. Interior quality is only so-so, but adequate. Could use rear seat head rests.

Review

I have to say, that I have owned some nice cars in the past, but I would be happy to trade all the creature comforts of the higher priced cars just for the reliability of this jeep. The 4.0 has enough power to get over/around what I need it to, when minor repairs are needed they are easy and don't cost much... Not many vehicles can be driven over 220,000 miles and still look forward to a long life to come. THIS ONE CAN!


Favorite Features

JEEP reliability, well, for the older ones anyway, the I-6 engine, availability of aftermarket, parts, and just everything....


Suggested Improvements

BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!

Review

I bought this Jeep at public auction, and it has been a good car but not a great car. Repaced in 4 months. Thermostat, Serp Belt, All fluids, Oil Twice, Tire weights, Tire allignment, Tire ballancing, CV joint, Steering column bolts, Radiator, Muffler New transfer case Chain! Overall it has just been one repair after another. Fun to drive but lousy Gas mileage. Mostly previous owner abuse problems. Check out VERY CAREFUL!before you buy used.


Favorite Features

Towing power, this 5 grand baby pulls hummers to SHAME!


Suggested Improvements

Radiator size keep it from overheating

Review

We bought this Cherokee brand new in '91 and it has been nothing but relaiable for our family for 12 years now. We now have over 207,000 miles on it and it still runs like it's brand new. The only parts we've had to replace were the radiator (just recently) and the starter. Just keep the oil changed relatively on time and it will last forever. Buying a Cherokee used or new will be the best choice out there for the money.


Favorite Features

Cool, classic look. Pretty good performance. Great view from the driver's seat with limited blind spots. Nice turning radius and handling. Runs great on 87 octane gas too!


Suggested Improvements

Put in better factory speakers. Mine are sounding kind of rough at this point.
