It has been a very reliable vehicle, and still runs great at 219,000 miles. I used to drive it daily until it was hit from behind. Now I use it mainly for hauling and plan to let kids drive it eventually. I would not hesitate to buy another Cherokee. They are a great value for the money.
Reliable, tough, great exterior design, parts are inexpensive and easy to find.
Gas mileage could be better. Rear seat could use headrests. I think Jeep made a terrible mistake in discontinuing the XJ Cherokee, and they should start producing them again.
