1995 Jeep Cherokee SUV Country 4dr SUV


Review

It is with great sadness that I have finally, after over a decade and some 185k miles, come to realize that my Country has finally reached the point of economic infeasibility. Bought gently used in '98 (only 28k mi in 3 yrs, car was spotless throughout, thank you 1st owner). Car was very reliable over the first 10 years of ownership. It is only now that it is beginning to fall apart. Engine, Tranny still original and still doing just fine, which is huge. I'd say the cooling system was the only component that was less reliable than you'd want. Everything else exceeded expectations.

Bring back the Cherokee.

Review

I bought my 1995 Jeep Cherokee from my boyfriend a couple of years ago, after he had it for about 3 years. It currently has 237000 miles and still running strong. We have had to replace minor tings along the way, such as, battery, hoses, maybe the water pump (cant remember for sure because Ive had a lot of jeeps!). It leaks a little bit of oil, but I could get that fixed, I just havent yet. Everyday I get in to ride, I wonder how it is still holding on, but the engine is STRONG! Never had ANY transmission problems, shifts fine! My car does have body damage that I have chose not to fix, but that does not affect the way she drives so Im fine with it!


Favorite Features

(cont from above)..This summer the AC has started to blow very weak, I think something is going to go out soon, and sometimes it will not work at all, but I think it is an easy repair! Great vehicle all and all! strong engine, reliability, style for an older vehicle, low cost to maintain


Suggested Improvements

MPG, I average 16, but my boyfriend has gotten 21 before! Better seats, front and rear, because they are a little uncomfortable, stronger AC

Review

Except for my '77 Camaro which lasted 15 years and over 100,000 miles, this is the best vehicle I've ever owned. What doesn't hurt is that my son is a master mechanic. He predicts it will last 250,000 miles. In 14 years I've only replaced a water cooler, an AC compressor, and an oil seal, and am on my 11-year old Bridgestone tires (another son). Had vent windows installed, which I consider a necessity. Except for a few parking lot scratches, it is in mint condition inside and out. Has factory radio with cassette player.


Favorite Features

Riding high above low-slung cars stalled in Tampa's flooded streets. My husband couldn't get to work one morning in his Buick and had to come back home to borrow my Jeep LOL


Suggested Improvements

None, except that I was appalled that Jeep chose to axe the production of the Jeep Sport and Jeep Country in favor of the idiotic Liberty. However, I'm impressed by the Commander.

Review

I enjoyed my Jeep thoroughly. I kept my Jeepster in pristine shape inside and out. You could literally eat off the floors and or hood. Within 8 years of ownership I had an oil leak where dropping the tranny became a necessary fix costing me $800 - and from there it mechanically went downhill FAST. The radiator, water pump and finally the rod bearings. The rod bearings would cost me a remanfacturered engine at a cost of $2000 + labor. The dealership here in Central Florida said $4300 and I said see ya. I had to figure if it was worth the time and money. The Jeep value being ONLY $3300. I loved my Jeep! Yet if I fix it what would the possibilities be of something else going wrong, like the A/C?


Favorite Features

Handling tight and great cornering ability. I like the sunken floors (boat like) and the interior comfortably wrapped around you (front seats ONLY). The electric window mechanisms are perfectly placed against door (not on the arm rest) so rain drops could not interfere with the electrical unit.


Suggested Improvements

Exterior body is quite flimsy. I have never seen a Jeep without a few dents and dings due to a run away shopping cart or an inconsiderate parking lot neighbor. JEEP should have a sturdier metal - at least adequate metal especially on the doors and hood. STOP with the torturous back seats.

Review

I bought this SUV not because i was attracted to the vehicle, but because i have four friends with cherokees, and they are all satisfied witht he vehicle. none of them have had any major problems with their Jeeps, and i got mine at a steal. i bought mine with 75000 miles on it, it is a '95, and in near perfect condition. i can easily see this car lasting for another 75000 miles.


Favorite Features

cruise control, my last car was made in 1964.


Suggested Improvements

better seal inbetween the engine and transmission. slave cylinder that is not made of plastic.
