Dependable and Low Maintenance
By Jan B. on
1996 Jeep Cherokee Country 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought the car thinking I would have it about 5 years. I drove it for 12 and had only routine maintenance. It has pretty good get up and go for merging onto the interstate and the Part-Time Shift to put it into 4WD for icy/snowy conditions was nice to have. I recently checked and found I get about 17 to 18 MPG.
I liked the ruggedness; felt confident I was okay even if hitting an errant pothole or other road hazards. I how the back compartment opened and was roomy since I carried a lot of supplies that I had to get in and out often.
Could use a smoother ride and be quieter on the inside. Getting in and out of the backseat was a little difficult for passengers.
