I bought my 1997 Jeep Cherokee new in 1997. It has a straight six engine, manual transmission - no frills. What a workhorse - It has well over 200,000 miles and all it has ever needed were oil changes, tires and windshield wipers. It doesn't get any better than this. When the engine goes I may get it rebuilt since the straight six is easy to rebuild.
