Fun Jeep -- Increasing Cost of Ownership
By Ken on
1999 Jeep Cherokee SE 2dr SUV 4WD
When a vehicle has 100,000 miles, I know we have a lot of work to do. This is no different. Tires, shocks, battery, brakes, etc. are normal. Electronics should be a bit more resilient. The air conditioning coolant has a leak. Of the 3 Chrysler vehicles I have owned, this seems to be their plan to encourage us to sell the vehicle; the system always fails around 90,000 miles and the transmission fails around 100,000-120,000. Planned obsolescence? Other makes seem to be more robust for this, but I digress. Other that that, a nice vehicle, fun to drive as an SUV.
Styling, 4WD, adequate gas mileage.
Robust electronics: transmission sensor, air conditioning leaks at 90,000 miles (which I have always had trouble with on any of 3 Chrysler vehicles I have owned).
