1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

My Jeep has an engine and transmission that just won't quit. Despite years of being driven by a mechanically-deficient person, it always seems to start and get us down the road. As far as creature comforts go, forget about it! The a/c was the first to go, followed by the control panel (speedometer, gauges etc) which often requires fiddling with the trip reset button to get the gauges to work again. Then, alas the heater has started to fade. Couldn't ask for a better SUV for living in the snowy north, but the lack of amenities in this old mule is a definite relationship-ender.


Best Features

4 wheel drive in the snow


Worst Features

Interior integrity and HVAC systems stink

Review

267,000 miles...more worried about the rust possibilities than anything mechanical. It is a dependable tank. Not glamorous, just reliable

Review

I bought the jeep smashed up in the front for a great price. Bought some new and used parts and painted it in my garage. Has been great ever since. Yearly maintenance is $100-$200 on average and I pile the miles on it. More reliable and durable than anything on the road. Everyone says in these reviews that they wish they still built them, the truth is that they do in China. AMC/Renault put a plant there in the 80's and they still build them today. Maybe they will offer them for sale here, I would buy one.


Best Features

Tough as nails, easy to repair, reliable and those Renault style buckets have always been a favorite seat every since my renault fuego.


Worst Features

Import them from China, they would sell as well or better than some of the SUV's today. Interior could be more friendly and use less plastic, but the designs are over 25yrs old now, Holding up very well considering that fact.

Review

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.


Best Features

The reliability, the interior, and exterior has held up awesome !


Worst Features

BRING IT BACK !!!!!!!!!!
