1996 Jeep Cherokee Country 4dr SUV


Review

The Cherokee is what an SUV should be; power to tow, excellent off-road capability, reliable, versatile,tough, and still comfortable and fun to drive. I have not had any problems with the vehicle. It tows a trailer very easily, is confident off road in some very rough country, and still works great for hauling groceries or clients. I admit to being a little critical of SUV's that were never meant to work. It seems like a bit of a waste.


Favorite Features

Reliable, tough off-road, still well mannered in town.


Suggested Improvements

I hope it comes back in some variation.

Review

Overall I have really enjoyed owning My 1996 Cherokee. It is a very useful SUV. Other that the cup holder and the rear seat, I have no complaints. I am not quite sure why Jeep discounted the Cherokee; it looks a hell of a lot better than the new Liberty.

Review

We bought our Jeep in 2002 with 85k miles on it. We've since run it past 120k, and it is still going strong. We've had to replace the water pump and serpentine belt, but that was it. It really is a solid vehicle, with great construction and is truly reliable. Would recommend to potential buyers.


Favorite Features

It handles like a dream. The sheer power of the vehicle- you know it's a JEEP. The torque is awesome, great pick-up and go. We like to take it to the mountains and it's always been our road-trip vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

The interior could use some tweaking. There are no cup holders or anything like that. I also find that the back seat does not have enough leg room to fit an adult comfortably.

Review

My '96 Jeep Cherokee Country was handed down to me with 280,000 miles on it and me being the 4th driver! It came from Texas and driven all over the eastern coast. Very reliable! The motor has been rebuilt, new transmission, but other than that, just typical wear and tear maintenance. It has been a great vehicle for our family and we plan on buying another Jeep soon.


Favorite Features

The back seats lay down, creating a lot of space for whatever you need! Cleans up good, so we aren't afraid to get it dirty.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders! Gas mileage isn't so great, but being so dependable makes up for that.
