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

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