I bought my jeep as a college sophomore back in 2005. Purchased in New York where I'm from, and attending school in Savannah, GA, I knew I was in for some serious mileage. I did my research and found a great Cherokee. That car has been up and down the east coast at least 10 times, been in rough road in the swamps of the deep south, and it never died. There were a few minor electrical problems, along with no CD player, however it was perfect. I just sold it (and miss it so much!) due to another long trip across the country, but will probably buy a jeep again.
Stability, performance, reliability!
Cd player, a high top speed and cruise control were lacking in this model.
