I have owned this Jeep since it was new. It has 200,000 miles on it, and the only major thing I've done to it was have the radiator worked on. My 16 year daughter starting driving it about 3 months ago. She had a rollover accident two days ago on a wet road going uphill, but she came out of this without a scratch! It ripped the back door off, there's a big dent on top on the passenger side. The front fenders were dented and the grill is missing. Mind you, there are no airbags. This Jeep is built like a tank. We will either fix it or buy another one like it.

I've had my Cherokee for about 6 months now. When I first got it, it had a lot of problems; mainly because of the carelessness of the previous owner. It had a terrible death wobble around 45 mph that I could not figure out. I replaced the transmission mount, a motor mount, shocks, steering stabilizer, and track bar mount. But it still shook. Finally, I replaced one of the track bar bushings that was pretty much gone, and it solved the problem.

Ironically, the Jeep is a great vehicle for Southern Cal in-traffic driving. It starts right up and warms up quickly, is fast off the line, and shifts smoothly. Tight situations are no problem either. Visibility is good, and because of its compact size, turning into tight spots and parking are a breeze. Reliability has been average. In the 14 years I've owned it, I had the rear main seals replaced @ 50k, the crankshaft sensor @ 70k, and the heater core went out @ 75k. Radiator was replaced @ 85k. Gas mileage has been 13 mpg in strict city driving. The switch off, though, has been the excellent power (4.0 six is an outstanding engine), and ease of driving.

Bought with 100K on it in 2000, now has 185K. I've put maybe 4 grand into it, from regular maintenance (tires/oil/brakes/tune ups), to a radiator, steering box/pump, water pump, A/C compressor, cables and maybe more. I'd do it all over again. This thing goes 300 miles a week just for work. I live in NC and have been to the Everglades, Quebec (2x), Jersey several times and all through the South. I can put 2 kayaks, 2 bikes and camping gear in it and go a thousand miles and this bear just keeps going. I love the vehicle for its dependability, tough style and power. Yea, it's a few bucks to put into a vehicle, but it's cheaper than a car payment, and the insurance is dirt cheap.

Got mine used with 45K miles; at 50K, I
had to put a new transmission in it.
Since then, it has been great... 150K
miles and it cranks right up. I have
to drive it like a maniac in the
Houston traffic, and it has held up
well. The inline 6 has great
acceleration, and its size allows easy
maneuverability. Also, have taken 10
or so trips from east Texas to middle
Georgia over the past seven years...
never had a problem.
