1997 Jeep Cherokee Country 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I drove this car/truck twice a week. I had only 62k on it and here's what went wrong: water pump, fuel pump (3 times), belt, alternator, radiator, oh and the engine (head gasket and bearings). Each of these problems happened with about a month of each other. Cons: When it didn't break down it rode very rough, like a truck. It was noisy and the gas mileage could be 20 mpg if you were going 55 and had no wind. If you drive normally (70mph), then gas mileage dips down to about 15mpg. Doesn't have a split rear seat. The engineering is horrible. Pros: Climbs hills pretty good. Is good in the snow, if you have good tires I hated this POS, you will too.

Best Features

Rear view mirror defroster, when they worked.

Worst Features

Split rear seat and all around engineering.
