Review

Very basic but also very durable. This is one tough vehicle that can take a lot of abuse. If you are like me and just want to get in and drive then this is the ideal vehicle. Expensive European cars know to keep their distance in parking lots and on the highway. Could'nt have asked for anything else but power windows.

Review

My only complaint is the gas mileage. I like everything about my Jeep. Next time I will pobably get more options. My husband loves it too! Ps. for mothers out there it is really nice not having to bend down to get your kids in the carseat, definate plus.

Review

I bought my '98 Jeep Cherokee Sport brand new -- right off the hauling truck. It originally had 0.3 miles when I drove it of the lot. I now have over 124K miles. So far, the only problem and so much to my suprise, the water pump went out at 42K miles and the factory front breaks at about the same time. The second front brakes wore out at around 85K miles. I'm on third set of front break at over 124K miles and I suspect I'll be replacing it soon since it's starting to vibrate again. The rear breaks wore out at around 114K miles. That's all the problems I've had in the 5 year I've own my Jeep. I guess that's good enough. No engine problem so far.

Review

I've had the Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 3 years. I haven't had any REAL BIG problems yet. One major thing to keep in mind: it makes a humming sound in the rear. I heard it's a common problem with the JGC's. The cab is extremely noisy, especially in the back seat. The 4WD also takes about a 1/4 mile to 'pop' back into 2WD. Taking corners on the 4WD is also a chore. Overall, I like the Jeep and would consider buying another, just beware of the 'hum', it will drive you NUTS!!

Review

Well.... If your reading this you're probably looking to buy one. I've owned a 1995 Cherokee Country, 2000 cherokee and now I just bought a 1998 Cherokee Sport and it's a cream puff. The Jeep is a trully on/off road vehicle.EX: Blizzard of 1996 (Remember)almost 4ft of snow and guess what I was pulling Ford's and Chevy's out of snow banks after they spun out and ended up on the side of the road stranded.It's a rough ride but one of the most reliable vehicles on the Market.If your looking for a soft and Luxury ride buy a Lexus or Lincoln water bed.

Review

Jeeps are incredibly fun to dirve. There rugged and extreme. I've used my 4x4 to go skiing as well as off roading. The Jeep comes through on all trails. I would recommend finding a stick vs. automatic.

Review

I bought my jeep new in '98. I now have 104,000 miles on it, and the only problem I have has is a power window motor. I use it offroad on the beach quite a bit, and have yet to get it stuck. It has been the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. I plan to buy another one for my son as soon as he gets his licence

Review

I have had good luck with my Cherokee. No problems other than routine maitenance. If you are into the outdoors this is a great vehicle. I have gone through things I wouldn't dare with other vehicles. And the Cherokee is just the perfect size; you're able to haul stuff with the back seat taken out but can also manuever around downtown easily unlike some enormous SUVs.

Review

This vehicle is great in the winter with 4WD, and handles nicely anyh other time. The fuel economy is bad with this vehicle. Having a straight-6 engine takes a lot of gas, but if you can afford it the towing capacity is worth it.
