Excellent Spare/Snow Vehicle

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV

Review

After exchanging our Subaru Outback for a mini van we found our selves without 4x4 for the first time. And we proceed with the snowiest winter in recorded Wisconsin history. We bought this as a "spare" vehicle, I say spare but it is now being used more than our 07 Hyundai Entourage Limited mini van. The 4.0 with the 5 speed accelerates with force up to 65 mph. The snow capability and stability easily rivals our old Outback, and the off road ability absolutely crushes the Outback. It is also far cheaper than a used Outback. I really like Subaru's and have owned 7 of them, but I like this Jeep better than the 2000 Outback we owned.

Favorite Features

Snow Ability, very off-roadable, excellent engine/transmission combo, love the old school design (boxy wagon and solid axle suspension). The size is perfect for all around use.

Suggested Improvements

MPG, fairly low but at least I have a VW Jetta TDI to commute in(47 mpg combined). Another vast improvement would be to start manufacturing it again.
