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.
Reliability. FWD. Quick, decent gas mileage, comfortable to drive and I love the classic Jeep looks
They should have kept making them. The Liberty is sissy looking and pathetic.
