1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Cherokee's have always been a tough, reliable 4WD. After owning one for years and 120K miles, I agree. Luxurious, no. Many vehicles are more comfortable. Small, nimble, simple vehicles, yes. Very durable too. One turn signal switch has been replaced. All other items, tires, brakes, oil, etc., were maintenance items. This is a vehicle that has seen many offroad miles in the Southwestern deserts, and it seems to be just breaking in. Offroad, it will leave posuer 4x4's (Xterra, etc) behind, including very expensive ones. The 4.0L engine has more in common with a tractor, but they'll run past 300K with basic shadetree mechanic skills. A simple scan of the used Cherokees bears this out. A+

Best Features

4x4 ability. Durability and longevity. Nimble and agile.
