Bought a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2W
drive. AutoNation "certified" and under
limited warranty. Had a nagging "clunk"
when shifting from N to D, not all the time.
Turns out I needed a differential & transfer
Due to warranty process, car had to be
inspected by an AutoNation adjuster - took
over a week for dealership mechanic to
make appt. then 3 day wait then 1 day eval
and then had to get OK to proceed. Jeep
dropped off on 1/25/03, still in the shop as of
today, waiting for parts.
Part of problem is the Jeep ran fine-
apparently problem had been present for
some time, but no one noticed. No official
cause for the mechanical problem.
6-cylinder gives great acceleration and
Back seat a little cramped.
Power everything nice, driver's side has
control over all windows and locks.
No problem with spare tire in cargo area -
would rather have it there than have it stolen
off the back.
Make rear seat easier to raise and lower.
Add rear seat headrests.
Tow kit should have been standard.
