1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

After two years, the Jeep reputation reared its ugly head. The AC is continually broken. The cd player and sunroof are dead. The roof lining is sagging, the windows leak. It rattles and chirps (and not only off- road). The automatic transmission has very bad days. The side bumper strips are falling off. And, mysteriously, the front driver's side door has begun to rub against the nose-side panel, slowly denting it inward. I adore it...but will soon face the fact that I'm pouring money into a bottomless pit. (sigh....)

Favorite Features

That classic exterior. Looks great dirty (as a Jeep should). Cargo space. Available toys (luxury in a rugged vehicle).

Suggested Improvements

Simply not as durable as it should be. Shame on Jeep, for allowing such a reputation to be proved true.
