1999 Jeep Cherokee SUV Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought this with 50K after riding through very rough terrain in a friend's Cherokee that had 250K. I'm now at 140K. I meet people all the time who tell me they are the best vehicle ever, and who have very high mileage. I use it on very, very bad "roads" in the hills of backwoods East Tennessee and also to commute and to haul electronic equipment. This Jeep does it all. It's true it's not a pretty soccer mom's car, so what, that's not what I want. Oh please bring it back! By the way, people around here love them and keep them forever.


Best Features

Excellent on really bad roads. Pretty good on the highway, lots of pickup and handles pretty good too. It's basic, and practical, and roomy and that's exactly what I need. I'm not slow on the interstate but with this 4.0L 6 banger I get 19mpg. If your mileage isn't that good, get a tune-up.


Worst Features

Don't make it prettier or more comfortable. A little more room in the front would be good, maybe better cargo/seat arrangements in back. I want to be able to buy the 2009 version!

Review

I bought my FWD Jeep Cherokee Sport brand new in 1999. I had it for five years, put 90k miles on it and only did routine maintence. This was an awesome vehicle and I hated to get rid of it. The only down spots were hard plastic interior. Otherwise, it was an awesome vehicle. I'm still hoping to pick-up another one used sometime soon.


Best Features

Reliability. FWD. Quick, decent gas mileage, comfortable to drive and I love the classic Jeep looks


Worst Features

They should have kept making them. The Liberty is sissy looking and pathetic.

1999 Jeep Cherokee SUV Classic 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought my Jeep from the original owner in June of 2006, and I've been very happy since day 1. I bought it with 75k, and since then i've put 23K on it since. I've had to replace the orginal brakes on it (i'd suggest the ceramic brake pads), tires, and shocks, but that's been it. I also put a 2" lift kit on it, because stock 4x4 vehicles tower over it. Now it's about the height of a stock 4-runner. The best thing is that it's never stranded me, it's been the best car I've owned and I've owned and sold a lot cars.


Best Features

Exterior styling, the ability of driving in adverse conditions. Gas mileage in the summer 20 MPG (winter gas drops to 17 MPG), Reliabilty. Torque of power of the 4.0l, stock speakers are sound pretty good.


Worst Features

The back seat will not seat a adult comfortably for any period of time, Exhaust manifold is a common problem (the previous owner had it replaced before i owned it), ground clearance hence the 2" lift, other than that it's great!

Review

I have had my Jeep since my junior year of high school. It got me to and from college countless times, three moves, and even an annual 1,000 mile round trip vacation. This car has never broken down and I have never needed roadside assistance in the 8 years I have owned it. However, AC finked out at 90,000 and many minor repairs were also made, adding up quite a bit. But I can't complain, this car is the epitome of reliable- snow storms, white outs, blinding rain? No problem, always has got me through! The design has no bells and whistles, mine doesn't even have cruise control, but thats's what makes this car fun! It's a truck and meant to be simple.


Best Features

So fun to drive! Amazing turning capability compared to most SUV's. Can parallel park like it's nobody's business.


Worst Features

The plastic trip on my Sport faded with in a few years and takes quite a bit of manual labor to keep looking nice.

Review

I have owned several Jeeps and have been pleased with the quality, dependability, simplicity and utility of every one. My 1999 Jeep XJ Cherokee is by far the best overall vehicle I have ever owned. I would recommend any year Cherokee - that has been well maintained - to anyone that needs a dependable utility vehicle at a reasonable price!
