1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought mine as a lease return and have had only one problem - the transfer case was shot, probably because the previous person drove with PT 4WD on *all* the time (clearly not the brightest). Warranty covered it, so it wasn't so bad. Every other aspect runs beautifully - tons of power from the in-line 6 cyl. engine, and amazing off-road capability. I've been in snow and mud up to my fenders, but my cherokee climbs right out of it. The MPG isn't bad for an SUV - 20-22 MPG on avg. for me. The ride comfort isn't great, esp. in the tight back seat, but I'm happy to trade a little on-road comfort for the off-road/bad weather confidence :)

Best Features

Indestructable, powerful engine; ability to get out of nearly any off- road mess.

Worst Features

Better back seat; longer warranty (I squeaked in under the limit for my repair); and, of course, go back to making it!
