1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


I love the look of this model. Very rugged and simple. Nowadays, SUVs have been designed for soccer moms and this thing actually looks like it was designed for a little more than picking up some milk. I bought my Cherokee used last year as a second vehicle for winter use and have invested some money into the suspension. It has 140,000 km on it and the engine/transmission and 4WD all run like a charm. The only problem I have is the computer acting up during the cold months of winter, but has no problems in summer. Gas mileage is not the best and rides a little rough overall. I know it wasn't meant to be a smooth riding gas sipper, but it is a little harsher than you'd expect.

Best Features

Exterior design is simple and brilliant. 4WD is excellent on this vehicle. Goes a lot further than most SUVs dare.

Worst Features

Since they don't make it anymore, I suggest they bring it back. I despise the Liberty/patriot/compass/commander which lack the ruggedness of this vehicle and aren't true Jeeps
