An old work horse

Vehicle: 1999 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

Let me just start off by saying I love my JEEP! And there is no denying it this baby is a Jeep. Some people think the only real Jeeps are Wranglers but that's not the case, this bad boy even stock has the capability to do some pretty amazing things off road. The best part about this jeep is that while being able to take it for a fun weekend camping or 4x4ing is nice and easy its also a great car to drive on the road,in the city or on the highway. I have a 99 cherokee sport in automatic (not listed on this site if im not mistaken) and she has over 230,000 miles with nearly no major repairs aside from a starter and a new ac pump. And of course some body damage fixes but that' my fault not hers




What a truck!

This is the third Jeep I have owned aside from the old '86 Grand Wagoneer and the '93 Jeep Cherokee. Reliability has improved over the years, I bought the '99 Cherokee Limited with 72k. I have enjoyed driving this Jeep and probably will never own any other make of suv. There is not one bad word I can say about the Jeep Cherokee!




Jeep trifecta

Bought this new in 99 and we love it. This was to replace my car and after test drives of others kept coming back to the Cherokee, we had bought a used 90 Cherokee in 91 that my husband used for work. When we decided to replace the 90 my husband went looking for another and we now have a 2000 Sport Cherokee. These are all going strong and shouldn't need to replace for years. The 99 gets the most mileage now as I have to travel for my job but at 130K it should last until retirement. The 90 still gets lots of use at the beach, when the kids need there cars fixed, still going strong. Bring them back Jeep, there is nothing quite like this SUV.




Seriously... my best friend in

My Jeep is the first car I ever bought for over 2k. I've had it since 2001, and it has been the greatest car ever. I never want to get rid of it -- it's like family to me now. It has required little maintenance and has taken me all over the country. It's got about 82k on it, but drives and looks brand new.




The original suv...scrap the liberty!!!

Vehicle: 1999 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

In just over two years of ownership and over 100k miles, one word sums it up, RELIABLE. Engine has always averaged 19.1 mpg according to the trip computer. Not bad for a big 6 cyl. and a vehicle with the aerodynamics of a brick, but hey, it's all part of the charm!! Other than oil changes, 1 set of tires, 1 brake job, and replacing the transfer case at 171,000 miles this thing starts and goes every day without fail. It's Simple Design makes for a very dependable AND easy to maintain vehicle even for the novice mechanic.




The best ever
