Good Reliable All-Purpose vehicle
By Arthur D on
1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD
Had vehicle over 7 years. Hauls everything from hay to infants. Have driven through swamps, & snow covered roads other vehicles couldn't. Plenty of room to haul tools, supplies, and kids gear. Rear seat does not have a lot of legroom for adults so not recommended for long trips with 4 adults, but fine with kids. Get 20 MPG. Low maintenance bills. No major problems. A little noisy/bumpy on the highway compared to new vehicles, but it really drives well in the bad weather. This Jeep has driven: dates in college, buddies, friends going fishing, dogs, tools, clients, building materials, canoes, the bride and groom, babies, toddlers, and gear in all types of weather. A good all-purpose vehicle.
Folding back seat for large flat area for hauling items. 4WD. Powerful 6 cylinder engine. Luggage rack. Easy to strap in infant child seats in rear seat tightly, and get the kids in/out because of the hight of vehicle. Do not need to bend a lot as with a car.
AC condenser makes noise sometimes. More rear seat leg room. Better/more cupholders.
