I've had my cherokee for roughly 4 years now, bought it used at 120,000 miles, and I have yet to even touch the motor in terms of repairs. It is a modern day sherman tank mechanically. I've obviously had to replace my share of wear and tear parts such as the alternator, tie rods, brakes, etc. But never anything on the motor, or even the transmission for that matter. Unfortunately, as with all cars, it is falling apart at the seams in terms of appearance. The bumper fell off the other day for no reason, and it has a crackle when idling (most likely the catalytic converter). Its a pretty big gas guzzler as well. All around I'd say it is the perfect "point A to point B" vehicle.
reliable, structurally sound, 4wd is awesome in the winter, good towing capabilities.
What do you expect, its from the 90's. You won't get a better vehicle from this era in terms of performance
Love this baby! Can't seem to want to trade it in. I have put 170,000 on it. Very minor problems such as water pump,starter, and oxygen sensor. Other than that, oil, gas and tires. It gets the gas mileage that it should get for a 4.0 engine. People who complain need a smaller car not a SUV! This baby is fast too.
6 disc changer, body style and POWER!
Outside noise while riding. Loud fan noise when it is running with a/c
Almost the day the warranty ran out,
this hunk of junk has been nothing but
a headache. I bought this jalopy new
and in the last year have had to have
the tranny rebuilt, a new water pump, a
new power steering pump, a new
radiator, and now the evaporator needs
replaced. Enough already! I am buying
