1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Owned since new, now has ~50K, runs better than ever. Great to drive with V6, stick, and lower weight than most SUVs. Strongly recommend stick-like to downshift into turns to manage SUV-roll risk while keeping up power. And it helps with mileage (18-20MPG). Only maintenance has been oil chgs & tires once. No rust/exterior problems, though it has been garaged mostly. Would get 4DR - trick to get in/out of backseat. Still not sure 4DR that would make it a family SUV-ride is pretty bumpy for munchkins in car seats. Echo all comments about 4WD & snow; with locking 4WD (not AWD with differentials) you get great power & traction.

Best Features

V6+stick+low weight=great to drive; lots of space for cargo with or w/o seat folded down; pretty comfortable seats up front

Worst Features

Bring it back!! Awkward rear entry on 2 door; could use more interior storage. Don't make the ride bland like most SUVs - it is what is, love it or hate it
