The best vehicle i have

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Jeep Cherokee SE 4dr SUV

I bought mine back in 2005 it is 2WD and it had 90,000 on it. The price was right so I couldn't pass it up. I am so glad I bought that Jeep, this May will be 5 years that I have had it, and I have only a few repairs. I replace a water pump at 145,000, and a clutch at 180,000. Other than that it has been only your basic up keep. I now have 220,000 on it! It's still going strong, this vehicle has sat put year round in the MN cold and it has always started, not once has it not. Everything still works great in it except the air did go out at 183,000. I will never get rid of my Jeep its been awesome! It is sad to know that they did stop making them after 2000.
