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.
This is a sturdy SUV that is easy to drive, lock in 4WD when needed. It has the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) rule going for it.
Bring the Cherokee back. Newer editions don't even begin to come close.
